Granted, I'm skeptical of any one, single news source but if you broaden the horizon it's possible to get a clear message.
I'm with Griff, read a lot, make your own opinions. Even someone within the industry can and will have slanted views. Case and point: The recent trillion dollar coin idea. Paul Krugman was all for it, but he's a lifetime academic and hardcore Keynesian, two things that don't hold as much water when it comes to decisions that will affect the working world. So while the media says things "nobel prize winning economists supports....", I still don't take their opinion to heart until I've done my own research.
