    Nope. The story read as though Haley was the central figure. They buried one drive by comment deep in the article which exposed the truth.

    They acknowledged that they tried to deceive their readers.

    The fact that they have come out and corrected their article proves my position. It was a poorly written misleading article and they said so. I guess that dog did hunt didn't it........
