And while we’re calling people out

While Nilay Patel did qualify his Verge headline with the wussy “could”, he also wrote the following:

Multiple sources have confirmed to The Verge that Amazon is working on a smartphone that runs a variant of the Kindle Fire’s Android-based operating system, and we’re now hearing that the device will be shown to the press tomorrow.

The correct reporting would have been: “and we’re now hearing that the device will *not* be shown to the press tomorrow”. 

So essentially all Patel reported was what Bloomberg reported months ago. But “exclusively”, mind you.
