I am happy to see the positive turn in this conversation. I agree that
discussion of the topic is valid, and good-faith criticism of the published
piece (not just complaining about the fact that it was posted) is also
valid.

I agree that adding some methodological rigor to the article might make it
more powerful and credible. An IRB might not be appropriate--does the
author even belong to an institution with an IRB?--but there are standard
journalism codes of ethics like this one:
https://www.spj.org/ethicscode.asp. There are some helpful points about
anonymous sources, transparency, and labeling advocacy that could improve
the article without watering down its message.
