Much ado or heads in the sand?

I sincerely hope that rumours of revenge attacks on stingrays are untrue. What’s interesting about this is the Australian media coverage. The ABC have buried the story to the extent that I’ve not yet found it. The SMH article leads in with assurances from a biologist that the incidents are unrelated. It’s almost as if the media are attempting to convince themselves and us that noone could be so stupid.
