Despite the sensationalist headline, this appears to be nothing more than a Ubuntu shutdown bug requiring a bizarre sequence of events to become manifest. See Theodore Ts'o's response on Google+ here:

I repeat, this is not an ext4 file corruption bug according to Mr. Ts'o.

In recent years responsible journalism has almost become an oxymoron.

Yes, almost. Keeping this within LXer, I think Steven_Rosenberg does a good job on his tech reporting and blogging.

I think we can add you and tuxchick to that list of reponsible tech reporters/bloggers, Caitlyn.
