You'd get more truth from used toilet paper.
The Establishment own and control the media and their media is not going to start talking about an OS that deprives their armies of cops and security freaks the ability to watch you, listen to you and observe all your computering habits.
Just as their media is not going to talk about participatory democracies coming into being in the West, or America and Israel being held to the same standard of law everyone else is, or Corporate tax evasion being dealt with meaningfully. The Establishment is empowered and enriched by such behaviour and they aren't going to give them up easily.
You live in a cage. There are pictures of open spaces pasted to the inside of it, but a cage it is nonetheless. The gate keeper is not going to help people find the door and pick the lock.
Shame about the Edge - looks like he'll have to give the money back.
