Press stories tend to be alarming, because that generates more clicks than say, a boring headline such as "CCWG recommendations questioned by many". 

For example, here is the IAB's take on the CCWG recommendations:
https://www.iab.org/2015/09/10/iab-comments-on-the-ccwg-accountability-2d-draft-report/

Given this and other reviews of the CCWG recommendations, it would have been surprising (or even alarming?) if the ICANN Board thought they were fine and dandy.
