I think this has a lot to do with money. If the companies admit to doing wrong things, then they usually have to pay compensation to the victims or whomever was affected. If they say they didn't do anything wrong and get away with it, they don't have to pay anything. However, sometimes backfires, because it may result in future lawsuits or appeals.
