News outlets need traffic, they will do anything to pump up trash to the front page and become viral even if the news is factless. It is not the worst that they cause mass adoption of lies, they do not answer to nobody for doing all that in purpose under guise of "journalism" while individuals are prosecuted and fined for various bs.
I am especially irked by financial "experts" who crap continuously, brokers who move, break and overtake market values on a fly and still are not publically received like the thiefs, but like "valuable" ( assets to their feudal masters).
