I don't want to step across the line into taboo territory, but I
sincerely hope that the scholars here who consider this a betrayal of
journalistic standards will take a few minutes to email a rebuke to the
NYTimes, at <

A single sentence is as effective a rebuke as a detailed point-by-point
dissection.  The standard is "weight of the evidence" not "beyond
reasonable doubt".

The NYTimes is widely believed to be a source of unbiased reporting and
fact-checked historical accuracy.  Students use the NYTimes for
research. They will be citing this article for decades.

It may be too late for people in New York to get into the discussion,
but I think that this newest batch of Anti-Stratfordians will be on
WNYC's talk show at noon today.

Mike, not William, Rubbo is the Australian film-maker I was telling
SHAKSPERians about last year (or was it the year before?), who contacted
me when I published my piece about supposed Shakespeare conspiracies in
the Sydney Morning Herald. He certainly sems to be getting a lot of
publicity for his efforts.
