But be that as it may. When you move around the world it becomes obvious that the major news organizations are driven by marketing, and they tailor their news so as to play to the world view and prejudices of their target market.

Fox news will do well in the Middle East. It will have nothing in common with the version in the United States, but people will believe it just as adamantly.
