Because those same media organizations take their cues from the US Government that considers Snowden a criminal.

Besides, the US media have an equally long history of propping up blatant liars and charlatans - but only if they serve the interests of US rightwing/warmongers/torture-lovers.

As I've said many times, the mass media serves the interests of the rulers against the interest of the ruled. That's the way it has been for a very long time.
