The Russians are hacking! The Russ … Oh.

Washington Post Admits Its 'Russians Hacked A US Utility' Story Was 'Fake News'

And – “Experts say the situation was made worse by a recent government report, which they described as a genuine effort to share information with the industry but criticized as rushed and prone to causing confusion. Authorities also were leaking information about the utility without having all the facts and before law enforcement officials were able to investigate further.”

A “recent government report” was “a genuine effort to share information” was also “rushed and prone to cause confusion.”

In newspapers, I knew writers who were convinced everything was a plot by somebody and believed their mission a genuine effort to share information. “I have documentation” was a phrase used before the conspiracist stated whatever outlandish claim followed.

The Washington Post is so ready and willing to point Republican election wins to a cause other than American voters that normal professional rules of checking sources is ignored or even unknown in the first place.
