Yes, it was just a throw away line. But serious newspapers do not say in front page story that:

"Over the long term, the deal could help free the nation from what is fast becoming a crushing debt."

Lines about a "crushing debt" should appear in quotations or left to the opinion pages. They should not be assertions of fact to readers.
