Antigone doing well at the National. Uncle Vanya returns to the Print Room. Sold-out runs for Merrie England and Events While Guarding the Bofors Gun at the Finborough but new performances added. All factual, all checkable, all happening, all news.
Ian McKellen rumoured to star in Hello Dolly. Dame Judi linked to star in stage version of Inspector Morse. Sonia Friedman considering McKellen for lead in Fiddler on the Roof. Could Branagh be about to star in Cabaret on ice at Wembley this Christmas? All the theatre-rumour equivalents of football media coverage, were the current distinction between hard news and idle chatter to become blurred.

That's an ambiguous opinion, neither fact nor rumour.
I'm 100% with WoS on this one. Baz Bamigboye's a respected journalist whose gossip or rumours are founded in research and it's sensible to report them, always citing him as the source. I'm sure WoS has never reported fantasy rumours such as your examples, even as gossip pieces.
