I'm sharing all your points : [edit: those "emergency landings" reported are probably plain wrong ; another newspaper is talking now about "spurious smoke detection" during previous flights before CDG, but everything is to be taken with extreme caution].

At least, we know that it's not something endorsed by JP Troadec as his comment was really cautious, if not sceptical, about what they reported. What is pissing me off is that other newspapers are "quoting" Troadec as being behind this story while he simply answered direct questions.
You are absolutely right.
Considering the first "ACARS leaks" that was published and was worldwide spread, it is rather strange and annoying that a media such as FR3 do not publish (a part of) its sources or documents, or at least elaborate more about. For those that are not very familiar with the French media, the "France 3" TV channel is a State-owned media that is supposed to be serious and reliable. Disturbing.
