Headline adjective unsupported because report is not hidden

I searched the story you published about the Haiti statistics and found not one reference to the report being “hidden” nor otherwise inappropriately kept from publication.  Apparently the report is in a preliminary stage and is being finalized.  Was it editorial pique which promoted the headline writer to insert an unsupported adjective in the headline?  Or just inner anger at the Obama-Clinton administration?  If either, when does your publication cross the line from being news to instead being an instrument of political persuasion?
