I think people read the phrase "speculative journalism" and their brains stop processing any other information.

To be fair, I think it's a stupid way to label a show and lends itself to incorrect interpretations.

The broader point that people don't seem to understand is that journalism is more complex than simply reporting "what happened." How often is the reality that simple? Everyone can list 1000 different moments in their lives where they argued with someone over "what happened" even in simple scenarios. Yes, journalists should be held to a higher standard, and there are certainly real issues in today's journalism but people genuinely don't seem to understand that reality and truth can mean different things to different people in the same situation.
