I think it is irresponsible journalism to state as fact, what can only properly be referred to as speculation. I don't doubt that it is accurate, but I do feel that stating things as though that have been officially substantiated when they clearly have not falls short of the duty that journalists owe their readers. I have noticed it a lot more frequently on AI as of late, and couldn't hold my tongue any longer. Just my .02 worth.
