Not to belittle the fact that the project stumbled on security support,
but the press certainly did not have to rely only on web log entries and
postings to public mailing lists. They could have asked questions of
people. That is, in fact, what the press was traditionally supposed to
do: dig out the truth of the matter, not just repeat what someone else
has said.
