It's not that different from the Uncertainty Principle...

The measurement creates uncertainty in the result. To probe a system is to introduce a perturbation that otherwise wasn't there.

Just the same, once a market is manipulated, the market is no longer the market it was without the manipulation. New variables have been introduced which affect its behavior. Thus, observations made in the absence of the perturbation may not reflect what will be observed in its presence. Also, the greater the manipulation, the greater the distortion.
