Question: What does the Quran have to say about Mainstream media?

Yes ! you heard me right

The Quran provides guidance for believers in every time and place. Now we live in a world of (mis)information, corporate run media and propaganda politics.

Can we uncritically accept everything that comes from the same mainstream media that lied 

What about the mainstream media narratives on Covid 19? Do you really believe that it just jumped from a bat to a Chinese person out of the blue? I have some serious doubts about it because this comes from the same media that has lied about Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Yemen.

Plus as Muslims, our guidance on every matter should come from the Quran. And the Quran in Surah Hujurat gives Muslims clear instructions with regards to news. "O who you believe ! Whenever news comes to you from a sinful one, VERIFY IT " (49:6)

Lets be Critical thinkers like the early Muslims.
