Yes, the media is owned and controlled by people like Murdoch. The truth rarely comes out at the beginning, its only people like ATS and the true investigative journalists who eventually drag it out. You'll never get the truth while media is so blatantly controlled. A friend of mine who was a journalist actually quit because of an argument with his editor about just this thing and he said it was the best thing he could have done. So no, the media wasn't hoodwinked, it was in on the scam.
