My entire point was to show how disingenuous the recent headlines at certain trad blogs and websites have been, including the three I linked in the first paragraph of the OP. My claim here is no more nor less disingenuous. You can make all kinds of outrageous claims based on what’s out there 24/7 on the internet. That does not make it right for us as Catholic to make those claims publicly, especially in the first couple hours or days of a new pontificate.

Well, if your point is we should be skeptical, sure. But, you can't trust the The Tablet either. According to Fr. Zuhlsdorf, that publication has an axe to grind. They printed this article to tarnish Pope Francis and Pope Benedict, not because they know it's true. Fidel Castro was a traditionalist seminarian when he was 18, but it would be misleading to assume he's still one. They took as rumor and extrapolating several steps to print something that confirmed their world view.
