And to a great extent the real issue here is whether or not - given
uncertainty and incomplete information - it is possible to act irresponsibly
(or even unethically) while playing the charismatic messenger with a message
that tends to be political, emotional, popular, speculative, and capable of
generating revenue.

Let's face it - both egos and livelihood are at stake here.  While I
sincerely believe that ALL parties involved care much for the well-being of
Monarchs, I'm also certain that they are greatly concerned with their own.
