What do you mean with "IP on bittorent" ? BT is just
an application level protocol over IP while protocol
udner is TCP. 

On the other hand, if any e2e communication is with
P2P  How can I know whether the news is reliable or
just a manmade one?  

To technical question,  I read several paper on p2p
traffic on WAN. But, it seems paper from france 
differs a little from korean. Some one said upstream
p2p bw is smaller than downstream, while other says
the oppsite. Is there demand on network topology? is
there requirement on routing protocol? Is there way to
enable interception asked by law?
