Het verhaal wat Gregg Pallast van de BBC in deze video verteld legt het systeem van fraude, milieuschandalen en de doofpot door bedrijven, overheden en media pijnlijk bloot. Een netwerk van wereldwijde omvang, corrupt tot op het bot, bepaalt de politieke en economische agenda met op het acht uur journaal een "niets aan de hand muziekje". En dan nu het echte nieuws:
