To be fair, the guy just wants some headlines.
Well, yeah, it's like NASA's little trick of prepping for a major press event, spooling everyone up, with cameras and world-wide coverage, only to find out they discovered a new kind of dust particle somewhere. These research groups are so strapped for cash, they need to drum up interest somehow. If it means injecting a little hyperbole into the mix just to get people to notice, they'll likely do it. This particular case appears no different. A minor discovery, yes, with potential implications for bigger discoveries, but certainly not mind-bogglingly huge. Just a baby-step.
