Did you seriously expect the State-controlled media to tell you the truth about any workers dispute?

Who is the "you" you are referring to here?

Knowing a bit about the author, I would think that he would expect the state or privately owned media to lie. However, that doesn't mean it's not worth putting together evidence exposing the lies, especially as many people (most?) generally believe what the press says.
