It is interesting – scary, as well – how power interprets certain things and engenders the ‘truth’(!). Recently, London police arrested street artist Banksy on the charge of ‘graffiti, public vandalism, criminal mischief, public indecency, resisting arrest, money laundering, criminal conspiracy and racketeering’. Beyond that, the police department revealed the artist’s identity with photos of him that had been kept secret for years.

Here comes the shocking part: it was just a hoax according to the artist’s publicist Jo Brooks. ‘Fear not, the street artist is still roaming free, spray can in hand,’ says the newspaper The Independent. Isn’t it a perfect example of how the media can manipulate?

We still don’t know who Banksy really is…
