I only found confirmation of my post on the Guardian, Sky, Metro, BBC. Aljazeera. Inews, Independent, ABC, CNBC, CNN, Yahoo, nzherald, Sun, and more.
Do you believe the media in the US?
When all the papers said there was a petrol shortage last week, people panic bought fuel. This shows the media has the power to provoke panic, so their prophecy was fulfilled. Had the media not printed this story, there may have been a few isolated problems, but nothing on the scale the media was able to produce.
A few days later, the fuel supply is pretty much okay. So the media are now talking about panic buying for Christmas. You wonder who is benefiting from all these stories?
