    He should be picking up a dictionary...

    This guy really needs to get his professions right, what he describes is not journalism its what a spokesperson does. Here is a hint to help him out!

    The key difference is who pays you for the work. If the person in power is paying you, you are a spokesperson. If a news organization or the public are paying you, it usually means you are a journalist. Just ask yourself this, whose interests am I serving with my work? If you are not serving the public interest you are not a journalist.

    I think its a matter of who is getting smacked down and who is the victim. As you already know copyright holders get away with a lot of false claims yet no one lifts a finger. Given this this common trend the fact that someone attempts to do the same the same to Disney (A ridiculously active lobbyist for copyright maximalism) then he gets the book thrown at him almost immediately raises some concern and might hint at inequality in the application of the law.
