Even the heroes or the audience! Should the heroes know the truth, they're still stymied by the fact that no one else does.
The heroes may even be falsely painted as villains in the public eye. Some heroes embrace this image and become the Lovable Rogue or the Anti-Hero. Should the heroes turn up actual evidence that something is up, it'll probably be ripped up by the villain's crack legal team which Villains With Good Publicity always haveor spun to look like honest behavior.
