God and Government – The News Media & the Danger of Bias


The freedom of the press and the public trust go hand-in-hand. The press has the privilege of being free to report what it deems significant to Americans. And we should expect and demand that the news media provide truthful information and nothing but the truth! We should not tolerate bias in the new media with content, selection, or tone.

If we seek only the news sources what we agree with, we perpetuate the bias in the media, and this begins a vicious cycle that is detrimental to all of us as Americans.  We are all in danger of losing our freedoms when we cannot count on the media to give us all the facts and let us make intelligent decisions that impact us and our nation.

The American Society of News Editors and the Associated Press Media Editors developed basic guiding principles of journalists as follows:


You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Exodus 20:16


Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.Romans 12:16


But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:  For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 2Timothy 3:1-5


These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:16-19


 “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.” John 7:24


The first one to plead his cause seems right,
Until his neighbor comes and examines him. Proverbs 18:17
