LIVE PRESENTATIONS BY: JOHN PILGER, VANESSA BEELEY, PETER FORD, PATRICK HENNINGSEN, Prof PIERS ROBINSON, ROBERT STUART and Prof TIM HAYWARD
What should we expect from the mainstream media? Accurate reporting? Impartial analysis? Speaking truth to power? At times of proposed war or foreign intervention the public has a right to expect all these. 
Establishment media tends to be dismissive of independent journalism.  With its greater size and influence the mainstream media (MSM) has avoided critical questions about its own reporting and journalistic standards and deflects calls for corroboration, verification and independent analysis. 
The leviathan that is the mainstream media has formed the narrative and stifled dissent but that’s going to change.  Our panel of seven experts including legendary investigative journalist John Pilger, will be applying the scrutiny to mainstream media reporting which we should all demand, given its power to sway opinion when our government is seeking consent for war. 
Specific instances of falsehoods which have led to disastrous and deadly campaigns will be highlighted with fact based evidence. Examples of insidious propagandist reporting for war will be analysed.  
It’s time to hear ‘the other side’ – the one that the mainstream media blocks from the airwaves and print media.
John Pilger, Vanessa Beeley, retired Ambassador Peter Ford, Patrick Henningsen, Professor Piers Robinson, Robert Stuart and Professor Tim Hayward.
