Edit: Sorry, that wasn't productive. I think that we can all agree that the Focus has some problems, and while they are getting better they are surely not in the clear. The price for innovating? Some. First model year issues? Some. QA issues? Probably some of that as well.
Ultimately, a person can't believe everything they read. In all fairness, though, there will be people that use the information as part of their decision-making process. That is something that must be considered, biased or not.
We must also keep in mind that other marques and models have recall, and other issues, as well.. Perhaps our foci has a few more but it's certainly not alone. Having said that, it is still frustrating esp to those who seem to have un-solvable problems w/ their cars.
