Also about news and opinions+22We formulate our opinions of the world based mostly on news that has been selected, edited, and presented by an intermediary. For instance, how many of you participated in the "Arab Spring"? These intermediaries - news corporations mostly - have their own agendas, and painting an accurate, even-handed picture of an event might not be part of it.
