Tonight we're joined by Patrick Chalmers, author of 'Fraudcast News' to discuss the structural problems in the mainstream press in reporting what people need to hear. Over climate change and war what we're getting, according to Patrick, is a view distorted by those that actually fund news wire services like Reuters who he used to work for. Mainly banks and financial service firms. Patrick discusses the sorts of priorities this brings to 'news' services and the distorting effect on a democracy which he sees now more as plutocracy or oligarchy. Rule by the rich or by a small group of powerful men.

Patrick Henningsen is the founder of 21st Century Wire a small news service which started as a blog but has begun punching above its weight as a critic of the views we see in the mainstream press. He talks about the geopolitics of the Syria conflict, about the role of Turkey's president Erdogan and the true aims of the Syria conflict in the NATO countries. Also the possibility of an EU army supplanting the role of an increasingly discredited NATO alliance.
Patrick also talks about the so-called Gladio II attacks in Europe and North America - both the Paris Attacks and San Bernadino shootings look to have been orchestrated by police, secret services and other authorities, possibly with special forces or private military help and not to have been organised by Middle Eastern or Muslim powers at all.
