Maybe we're not so different after all

It's an opinion piece from Arab News about Arab news media, but it sounds about right from my perspective here in the U.S. looking at American media, too:
"...the truth can’t hide behind the smiley anchors’ faces anymore. The public eye and mind went past the newsroom curtain and the Dear Leader’s portraits to rich sources of information and explanations. So what the media answer would be? Surprise, surprise! More lies, more going. No one believes? Who cares! There is a whole industry of perception manufacturing."

Hmmm... "Industry of perception manufacturing." That pretty much hits the nail on the head I'd say. What a shame.
