The current opportunistic stream of SEO articles feels more like a propaganda war than true journalism.
I cannot agree more...I wasn't sure why the Press was getting so excited about SEO and Google in particular. Any business faces difficulties from spammers and competitiors and google is no different. Things like these are common to any business and I don't see a reason for the mainstream media to make news of them.
I will also have to add that I don't see any violation of Google TOS in this case.
