The Most Powerful Entity On Earth? | John Mulholland, Áine Kerr..

Malcolm X once called the media 'the most powerful entity on earth', with 'the power to make the innocent guilty and the guilty innocent'.

Christopher Kissane speaks with leading figures about the future of the media in an age of 'alternative facts'.
