Newspapers should take truth and accurate reporting seriously. They should have a science editor with a scientific background who can check the work of the reporters.

Configure all of your devices to proxy HTTP and HTTPS traffic through that intercepting proxy.

If your device does not complain about your self-signed certificate enabled HTTPS proxy, then there is something seriously rotten security-wise

If you can load your self-made CA cert onto the device and explicitly tell it to trust any cert issued by that CA, then everything is fine. Obviously if you don't do that, a MITM attack should cause scary warnings. :-)
