I don’t claim to know something just because vested interests have proclaimed it, however many do.
They repeat, parrot style, whatever some institution has proclaimed through the media not stopping to think- does this proclamation suit the agenda of this organization. If it does suit their agenda can it be trusted? The answer is "no".
Nothing proclaimed by an institution that suits their vested interests can be trusted. Only statements made by TOTALLY independent organization have any measure of validity and even they should be taken with a grain of salt given the fallibility of human nature.
