> benefit of the doubt

OP's point was that ZDNet is stooping a bit low here by journalistic standards. In this case, it appears there's not enough evidence to publish a "question headline" -- much less question whether they deserve some benefit of a doubt.

We all know MS and others have engaged in questionable behavior - but at least wait until there's something substantive before publishing.

No, publish now, and let Microsoft's PR machine reveal itself. We could learn so much.

So you'd rather push fake news, rather than see if the report substantiates.
