This is why we love Aakar Patel. He starts a piece with:

Sonia Gandhi, who has led India’s largest political party since 1998, is in a New York hospital after being operated on for cancer.

and shortly follows it up with:

We do not really know how serious the illness is, which organ is affected or even whether or not it is in fact cancer.

The piece is here but you must not reward such writing with hits.
