Go in the mainstream english press

I came across this article googling around for go stuff. It's unusual to see go coverage in english except at specialist sites (which are understandably biased in their coverage). Despite some trying, I've had no luck crafting a google query that catches anything significant --- mainly because go is such a common word on the internet and in press writing.

Sigh. The article says that Cho Chikun is also Honinbo.

This is obviously not correct. Cho U is Honinbo. At least for the next few days.

The article says "Cho is also called the “25th Honinbo,” after successfully winning his 10th Honinbo title, a historic title." which says that Cho previous won the Honinbo title, it doesn't actually say the current title.
