The UK Royal Astronomical Society just made a splash with the first
profesional press release in this entire process.

The wireservices have all picked up the story, but most are just
excerpting from the RAS release.

This one has the most attempt to analyze the underlying problems, but
the analysis does not seem right. In my understanding the GPS system
itself handles leap seconds pretty well, almost optimally.
It's some receivers which have difficulties.
