Something as big as this event that took place, I doubt the media would try to lie to the public about this. Is it possible? Yes they could... But is it plausible? No. What would they have to gain? Someone in the area would know something, like this guy is getting set up or these people he allegedly murdered never existed and so on so forth... C'mon we live in the Information Age. If something was legitimately fishy, something would surface. Like I said the media would have nothing to gain by doing this as a fake. Honestly, give this a month and a half and it'll be forgotten. I, for one don't think that EVERYTHING the media reports is a lie.
