But the sources of distrust go way deeper.
Most journalists learn to see the world through a set of standard templates (patterns) into which they plug each day's events.
In other words, there is a conventional story line in the newsroom culture that provides a backbone and a ready-made narrative structure for otherwise confusing news.

Americans have been migrating south and west in larger numbers since World War II, and the pattern still prevails.

And, of course, speaking a language does not necessarily mean that someone understands social and cultural patterns.
Visitors who fail to "translate" cultural meanings properly often draw wrong conclusions.
For example, when an American uses the word "friend", the cultural implications of the word may be quite different from those it has in the visitor's language and culture.
It takes more than a brief encounter on a bus to distinguish between courteous convention and individual interest.
