Information in newspapers is not always right, is it

I check regularly for news items to include in my monthly list and have found this one today

http://topwirexs.com/children-suffering-from-cerebral-palsy-receive-assistance-from-a-center-in-lake-zurich/171636/

This reports the work of the Centre for Independence through Conductive Education as described at a Rotary Club of Lake Zurich function. It starts with an explanation of cerebral palsy and how it occurs before or during birth due to lack of oxygen; this is not my understanding. No-one really knows what causes it, lack of oxygen may be only one possibility. It is important to get facts right as wrong information in one section of an article can cast doubt on the rest of the piece.
Most  journalists and those interviewed by them, do get things right, but  perhaps everyone should check their information carefully before making such statements as that mentioned above.
