That's pretty much the case with simplified reporting geared for mass consumption. Most mainstream treatments of anything with a degree of subtlety completely fail to report those angles, even though all it would require would be an extra sentence or two, or even a partial sentence. On the other hand, a lot of people are always going to take away the wrong message no matter how you phrase it, for whatever reason... because they hear what they want or expect to hear, instead of what's actually being said. That and the time factor (attention span) are why I generally point people at the 1-hour Gary Taubes video instead of recommending they read GCBC, unless I think they have the patience and/or intelligence to "read the whole thing". Thankfully Charles Washington has done a great summary of it (links on his forum).
