From the traditional view, “trustworthy” means deserving of trust or confidence which is able to be relied on as honest or truthful. Then, the “news agency” means an organization that collects news item and distributes them to newspapers or broadcasters. In the lecture, we used these terms relate to the news. “trustworthy” describes something we can believe in, and those information is completely reliable.

“News agency” is an organization that gathers, writes, and distributes news from around a nation or the world to newspaper, radio and TV broadcasters, government agencies, and other users. It does not generally publish news itself but supplies news to its subscribers, who, by sharing costs, obtain services they cannot otherwise afford. All the mass media depend upon the agencies for the bulk of the news, even including those extensive news gathering resources of their own. And most of news agencies are promoting a specific take on information or presenting on one side perspective of a subject. So, if we set reliability to a different confidence level, then a trustworthy news (100%) will get a higher level than the news from news agency (50%).

A “trustworthy” source of news

For the “trustworthy” news agency, I would like to choose BBC News which the British Broadcasting Corporation is the largest broadcaster in the world. Because it is the British government funds the organization then it is not beholden to corporate interests. Also BBC has a history of over ninety years with a well-earned reputation for accurate, unbiased reporting (and a bunch of other cool stuff like these stunning mini-sites). And I would like to share a statement from BBC, “Our commitment to impartiality is at the heart of that relationship of trust. In all our output we will treat every subject with an impartiality that reflects the full range of views. We will consider all the relevant facts fairly and with an open mind” (BBC). The example of a “trustworthy” news I would like to talk from BBC is “China Uighurs: Xinjiang ‘legalizes’ Muslim internment camps”. I like it because it described different viewpoints by different person and BBC did try to pursue the Chinese government. I am an international student from China, to be honest, I only have dog’s chance to see the truth from Chinese government political behavior by public news from social media. Most of news agency only can eulogize and admire the Communist Party or produce the part of truth which is good for government or got banned like global search engine “Google”.

A “partial” or “partisan” source of news

For me, the Partial or partisan news sources like CNN, and it impact trustworthiness by degrading it. Like one of news from CNN, “Trump adviser Anthony Scaramucci was on the radar of the Senate Intelligence Committee for meeting with the chief executive of a $10 billion Russian investment fund”. After this news published, conservative media has unsurprisingly taken this morsel and run with it, holding it up as proof that the mainstream media is out to get Trump and that non-conservative media outlets are “fake news”. The CNN news were not interested in the truth because they support regime change in Syria, and this piece was published before it had been properly vetted by an executive editor and the network’s legal team. Depend on this fact, their perspective gets in the way of honest and trustworthy reporting.
