    I’m curious as to why only these two media outlets published this story.

    The article at the Telegraph is clearly not proofread, so why would anyone trust the content otherwise? Inspection of the site’s other “news” shows it to be of questionable journalistic quality.

    Then there’s the Daily Mail, which is just plain awful. I won’t even go there.

    Being covered by only these two media outlets lends this story an air of a LACK of credibility.
