>>>Meanwhile the American corporate media is mostly reporting it as anti environmental protests.

God forbid that I should defend the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board, but something with the byline "by the editorial board" is not claiming to be "reporting".
>>>I'm starting to think the media is untrustworthy.
Well, if you're so dumb and reductive that you imagine "the media" as a single entity that thinks with a single mind and speaks with a single voice, that voice is in your head, and you should never trust voices in your head.
Right now, the media is the wall street journal, and CBS news, and also Binro the heretic, who, like WSJ, also has an interpretation of the riots that I really wouldn't care to take at face value.
I trust the Wall Street Journal editorial board to give me their opinion, and also Binro.
"The media" is in not a single entity. It doesn't speak and act as one, but humanity has always been subject to bias, and error, and distorted by market forces. They didn't call it "clickbait" when Hearst did it, but it's the same basic principle.
Some people are trustworthy, and some are not, but you should never trust anyone to never get things wrong, certainly not anyone else in this thread, and certainly not the Wall Street Journal editorial board. People have always gotten things wrong, and present-day shifts in the political culture, technology, the rapid erosion of the old business model, dwindling resources, isn't going to make any of this better.
Oh, and now, Chairman Meow is calling the media "the enemy of the people". Before you generalize about the whole industry, ask yourself why that is.
Also, don't trust the truth to be that simple.
