Is the whole media lying as alleged by the supporters of Asaram Bapu? How can that be true?  Why should all the media lie?  Why should it conspire against Asaram Bapu only when there are so many other godmen also?  Is this not paranoid projection on the part of the supporters of Asaram Bapu? You judge for yourself.
