The Media, Katrina, and The Vietnam War

So we found out that none of the horrors (rapes, murders, numerous bodies in the fridges, ten thousands deaths) occured during Katrina. Echoing Hugh Hewitt point that if the Media throw all their resource in the coverage about an even that happen at home, and they got it wrong; how can we trust them on things that is far away in a far less permissible environment such as Iraq. I wrote about it here.
But there is different point to it. We know that most of the accounts of the Vietnam War was reported by the Media, and many of the facts eventually ended up as sources for text books. During Katrina, even with the advent of weblog and close scrutiny of the media, they reported lies. Imagine the 60s and 70s, when there was no scrutiny, how can we trust anything they reported then.
Question: Are our children learning lies?
