I think its like living in a world of hyper fear and hypothesis. Remember the saying"" Assumption is dangerous"'.
Any one , who believes that today's journalism is honest, is a naive person. All media have their financial agendas, sponsors or owners. 100%.
Spreading fear or hope is beneficial to some one and is a business. See how Fox, Msnbc, Aljazeera work. Prices of Steel. oil, gold, minerals, and every commodity is now based on organised rumors and no more on market speculation. Why gold price jumps hundred dollars in just two days. Why oil price jumps up or down 10 bucks for no reason or event. Its all organised crime against people of the world.
Any one who believes media, is good as an angel.
