 Goes through the hands of editors from the information gathered by those peskey reporters.

information is placed in our newspapers.

When the information is passed through the editors they use their own personal judgment to decide how worthy the news that was given to them is. The place the articals throughout the paper putting emphisis on some and letting others be on the back burner. They also edit the articals for content and decide what information is going to be given to the people. When reading the paper we have to be aware that what we are reading has been edited by someone for content and that we should use multiple sources to find the full truth. Still even with editors people think that print media is a very thruthful sorce for information, we just have to realise that people do make mistakes.
