Santana Blasts Media For Fear Of Unpopularity

Musician CARLOS SANTANA has slammed the American media for lacking integrity - and claims the public is fed "powdered milk" versions of important political issues.

The SHAMAN star, 56, believes fear of being unpopular prevents many areas of the media from telling the whole story, and so the truth is often diluted when presented to the public.

Santana says, "Most of the time the government has the media in its pocket, and there's a lot of people in the press who are afraid to be unpopular.

"So the press takes things out in the editing room and gives you powdered milk.

"There's too much powdered milk, man, but where's the water and where's the real cow?"
