I'm not defending the Guardian but if we boycotted publications for terrible tech reporting we'd probably be trying to get our world news from Ars Technica.

The bad tech reporting is not the problem. Failure to retract or acknowledge mistakes, in a situation where the bad reporting might get people killed, is the problem.

I had only skimmed the link when you replied. I now understand a bit better. I still don't think a boycott is useful in this case but continuing to publicize the issue is a valuable service.
