Sadly enough, that's often prudent. Some ISPs are honorable, for sure.
But many are duplicitous scum.

In any case, it's more accurate to say that about your VPN provider.
With Tor, you're trusting the system, but system integrity is resilient
to malicious nodes. So you're not trusting any one of them fully, even
your entry guard, as much as you would have been trusting your ISP.
