Cornelius Swart discusses the discipline of journalism, why it is perceived as fake, how it can save us from propaganda, and how to be a more vigilant media consumer. Sean introduces the program with a reading from Krishnamurti, and begins the trickle of Pizzagate revelations soon to be published.

Pizzagate is a conspiracy theory born from The Podesta Emails published by Wikileaks. Anonymous investigators in online forums developed a narrative based on real emails and news stories. As a theory, it remains that and not a news story. For those who are believers, it is just one news story that the mainstream media unanimously shut down.
