I don't think they even needed to go that far.  The copyeditor (if
they even still have them at the /Sun/) should have been sufficiently
numerate to notice that 500 MW was simply implausible (if for no other
reason than having edited stories about how Pilgrim generates 685 MW
of power).

So no, don't blame the reporter, blame the War on Editing.
