"I read just mentions of it through LWN, and now on Wikipedia"
Maybe you should have take a look before saying:
"When I read media coverage, I want to be able to rely on it and the facts it gives, and to leave verification to others, for practical reasons, unless I'm deeply interested on the subject.!"
because if Groklaw gives you one thing it's LOTS of facts! All of them referenced, linked etc etc
With so much easily verifiable information somebody would have noticed if she'd "doctored the records" so to speak.
The rest of it was her personal opinion, and clearly stated as such, with which you might agree or not. For that I don't need to know their real name, heck most of the time we don't know who's behind a story, it doesn't matter, I can make up my own mind if I agree or not, if I should be investigating more or am just happy to read the summary.
