Linking to her own network’s coverage of the development, NPR anchor Lulu Garcia-Navarro took exception to the usage of equivocating language like “theory” and “conspiracy” used to describe the dishonest claim.

“This language does our audience a grave disservice,” she tweeted. “It’s not a ‘theory’. It’s a lie.”

As of this writing, the original article appears to have been updated to include the word “untrue” in the headline and body.
