The purpose of this video is to reinforce the idea that people find what they are looking for. In the video, we have a professor and a media correspondent. The media correspondent is adamant that the world is falling apart and that is the job of the media to present this information to the general public. On the other hand, we have the professor who has done more research into the topics being discussed and has a better idea of what is actually happening. Both of these men, however, seem educated enough and are obviously up-to-date on world affairs. As stated before, this goes to show that people will always find the information they can understand and accept when they can understand and accept it.
