Checking the validity of what's said doesn't move something from the realm of "truth" into the realm of "opinion". If Holland says "our powerplay is bad because we've been injured" and a reporter says "wait a minute, your powerplay is bad even when the team isn't injured"; that doesn't make what the reporter said an opinion. And wouldn't you rather have a reporter ask that follow up question than just trumpet "our powerplay is bad because we were injured" back to you whether that's the actual truth or not?
Yes. But said reporter would need to present some facts that support that point.
