Malaysia Airlines 370 found?

An Australian company claims to have located the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 in the Bay of Bengal, in the north eastern part of the Indian Ocean. The flight disappeared while enroute from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8. 239 people were on board.
In the Bay of Bengal, in the north-eastern part of the Indian Ocean, the company found chemical elements on the ocean floor that are consistent with a Boeing 777 crash, reports International Business Times.
Those findings were not present in imaging from before the day of the crash, strengthening the argument for their being from the disappeared plane.
GeoResonance spokesperson Pavel Kursa stated that at the at the site "we identified chemical elements and materials that make up a Boeing 777...these are aluminum, titanium, copper, steel alloys and other materials."
David Pope, a fellow spokesperson of the company, added that "the wreckage wasn't there prior to the disappearance of MH370. We're not trying to say it definitely is MH370. However, it is a lead we feel should be followed up."
Using various images and information, the company scanned an area of 2,000,000 square kilometers (nearly 800,000 square miles), and in the end located the suspected crash site 5,000 kilometers (around 3,000 miles) away from the current focal point of the search.
Hmmm. (PS Could not find this story in International Business Times).

It would not shock me if every single word by every government and every news agency covering this literally every minute of every hour for 2 months was not only wrong but 100% wrong about this.

Your headline is misleading. The text clearly avoids making the claim that they found any specific/particular plane; rather that what they found is consistent with what they expect to find if or when MH370 is found. That means they're hopeful; not making a claim of a find.
