Well, that was certainly an error on their part. But two wrongs don't make a 
right. The rest of the news organizations are trying to
obey the rules and are waiting to roll out their stories on the beastie until

In the spirit of the season, consider the bungled Google posting as the "gift 
you get to open on Christmas Eve", and wait for the
big present for the time itself...
