Would He Say It Was Bad?

Some news writers are just plain lazy.
From the Orlando Sentinel:
When Harry Potter made his debut four years ago at Universal Orlando, it seemed there was nowhere for the boy wizard to take the lagging resort but up.
Universal had been hit hard by the economic downturn, and attendance had plunged by double digits.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter became a huge success, and today the question is whether Universal's second Potter land, Diagon Alley, can meet the high bar set by its predecessor....
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley won't disappoint, Universal spokesman Tom Schroder said in an email.
"Our standards are very high. We want to give our guests an incredible experience," he said.
"That kind of pressure is always there. But we've created a very different environment from what we created in 2010 — and we are sure our guests will love it.",0,7219450.story
Well, what else would the spokesperson say about their product?  Would they say it sucks?  If they did, the spokesperson would be looking for a new job before the day is out.
And why would the author of the article even bother asking the spokesperson about their Harry Potter amusement park product?  That's just being darn lazy.
