I don't know about you, but up till recently I had considered the Discovery Channel to be reputable and credible. But several shows recently had raised some doubts about the quality of their programming. Digging around a little, these are some of the criticisms I have found;
Shark week falsehoods;

Amish Mafia staged;

It was some of the stuff about alien encounters that set me off with the really awful one sided presentation.
Anyway, viewer beware!
