take what happened in Syria as an example, a toxic chemical attack in Syria killed a lot of people the other day, and without any concrete proof the news tells us the perpetrators are Syrian military forces and, most people believe it then, leads to the permitted US air strike on Russian supported Syria air bases..

what i mean is it's not just market-oriented that simple. market can also be created and manipulated by power, and that's the problem. is it like Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy, if i don't take it wrong? ok, you guys might not think the analogy is good..

anyway, nice one, Ken! ^++++^
i might be a cynic and, a sceptic as well but, i'm definitely not a bad person!!

Hi Ken

Excellent topic and hosting yesterday, too bad I could only join 2nd part. I think your 2nd session is also worth discussing over more time.
Since you are the media expert, we shall hear more from your in-depth point of view. I have another questions regarding how to judge fake news (Like commercial product placement) and how to find out the more appropriate truth as you mentioned all medium might have sort of political standpoint. Glad to hear feedback from you.
