Robomatic, Unfortunately the media in the UK have a massive impact, as I'm sure they do in the US of A.
Their impact on public opinion is out of all proportion to the numbers of people who actually own the outlets.
Sadly many people cannot read between the lines and believe the nonsense (that in many, many cases) that they are fed on a daily, monthly, weekly, annual basis.
The UK is a very, very wealthy country yet we have to have food banks to feed some of our population.
Those people are then castigated as inadequate because they cannot provide for themselves, there is something very wrong with a society that cannot (being very wealthy) provide for all it's population.
