I think that's the conclusion most folks have made.
The media is just waiting till the right time to report how the common folk were scammed, which is funny because it seems like the inverse of the truth. What's maddening about the whole thing is what's maddening about any con, they seem to be immune to the pressure and lie to the end.

Oh yea, and FIRST!

Dog bites man -- not news.
Man bites dog -- news

So in this case

Circa A year a go..
Private Mars Org sending people to Mars -- News Build story
Crazy un believable un famous people saying they can send people to mars sending people to Mars -- Not story, Don't report on it.

Now, a year later of reporting on the story so people understand what you are talking about:
People we gave credibility to by reporting insane reports as if they were facts -- News! Story! Report on how great journalists are for exposing fraud! Ignore the fact that journalists created the story in the first place!
