Not really at least here. That seams to fit fairly well with what I've seen of official Russian press though. Over here you get a mix besides the adds there are fact based stories, propaganda, editorials (i.e. views/opinions), and trivia all mixed together in varying portions. When I was growing up the TV news actually contained for the most part fact based stories with clearly delineated editorials. There was some propaganda and it became more common in the late 60's but the overall emphasis was still on real news/facts. There's still a fair amount of it but now it's "factoids" or trivia rather than useful information to a large extent at least on the commercial networks.
I'm glad you are confident because confidence is a pleasant state of mind. However, I must disappoint you - they don't even pretend they serve you with the truth.
Normally products have a warranty which means a guarantee or promise which provides assurance that specific facts or conditions are true or will happen.
Media do not provide a binding warranty for their products. If you believe media that is because you either don't have a sense for truth or you have deliberately decided to accept lies as a truth.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) elevated lies to even higher level. The Joint Report contained a Disclaimer stating that “ DHS does not provide any warranties of any kind regarding any information contained within.” O'Bama doesn't refrain from lies. They don't even bother pretending they are telling the truth. Is your confidence still so unshakable?
