Aside #1

Introductory it
We can use ‘it’ with passive of a reporting verb along with a that-clause when we need to indicate that a view or a belief is shared by a numerous people.
e.g.
1.It was reported that our team was defeated.
2.It is a common belief that Brutus was an idealist.                          

Look for More Asides.
