There is incentive to settle because Gastier is aware of the 500+M SGA plant around the corner. If they want a piece of that action, then they will settle and settle soon. As far as the Media is concerned, what incentives do they have to report the facts? Hmm, let me think about that for a minute.
Oh yeah, its called integrity, honesty and professionalism - - antiquainted ideals these days, I guess.

All of this is blown out of proportion by the media machine, bent on selling news that is hyped up, biased and "cooked" for mass consumption.
Ever heard of Reality TV? - yeah it sells all right!
