a 1,000 bloggers is just as bad as one editor. Knowing what is true and false from many opinions and so called evidence is just as difficult with the invention of photoshop these days, but propaganda has always existed. People are either going to accept the story from one or pick what they like according to what conforms to their model of the world. Internet 2 is the future!

How do we separate credible independent sources from the lunatics and conspiracy theorist?( 18:35 ) Unfortunately, Peter Philips doesn't provide a straightforward answer to this question.Instead he points out that big newspapers, such as SF Chronicles, often cover the false stories. I believe that in the age of new media, when everybody can publish pretty much anything on internet, time is the only factor which determines on whether the source will be considered credible or not. No matter how you're promoting your information or news, if it is bogus it is really hard to survive on the long run.
