Mud Slinging?

MediaCorp was hit with a fine from the Singapore Broadcasting Authority for showing too much nudity from a controversial sex video in its nightly news. While Reuters is usually a reliable source of information, I am beginning to doubt their objectivity in reporting.
<blockquote>Singapore takes a hard line against pornography, drugs and illegal gambling but Singaporeans have little difficulty navigating past token roadblocks to find raunchy material online.</blockquote>
There was little need for that last line in its <a href="http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=573&u=/nm/20020222/od_nm/media_dc_1" target="_blank">report</a>. It neither gave any insight nor facts to the incident.
Am I overreacting, do is this really a case of bad reporting etiquette?
