I don't see the point. The New York Times also reported that Rosie Ruiz won the Boston marathon in 1980. What's the point in denegrating an entire source for discrete items?
Did you write for Ring Magazine? Are you better than their writers? Are you a better historian than Gerald Early or Stanley Crouch? Have you written more on boxing than Oates? Tell me what your point is, exactly.
