Tabloids like scoops. If you go public yourself, they loose the
opportunity for a scoop and then don't really care.

Also, what do you mean by 'misrepresenting "truth"'? No-one has denied
any of the allegations made in the The Register article. As far as I
can tell, they were reasonably accurate in their reporting (unusual, I
know, but it seems this story doesn't need much in the way of spin).
