Elites in a number of countries, including journalists, feel safe repeating stories if it's been in the FT or the Economist before.

And lots of businessmen know only that version of international news.

So what they say does matter to shape conventional wisdom, unfortunately.

Yes, it does matter but thats is not the same as what someone might equqte with respectability. Let's say it has high 'MSM credibility'. Ha!
