I think you guys are either reading too deeply into the article or just trying to make arguments for the fun of it. The title of the original article Microsoft’s Paul Allen’s yacht wrecks coral reef, is entirely factual. It was his boat. It did damage a reef. Inside the article it states that the yacht was instructed to anchor there, so a reader could draw the conclusion that it is the government's own fault. That's why the yacht did not receive a fine.
What gets me is the hypocrisy of how it is a protected reef and divers cannot collect specimens or fish, yet the cruise ships and yachts are instructed to toss their anchors up on it.
PS - Headlines have to be short by nature, and they have to capture the reader's attention, and yahoo/similar are not exactly bastions of journalistic integrity.
