"Reports of Jeff Goldblum's and Harrison Ford's deaths are grossly exaggerated." The English language is now officially dead. A death can not be exaggerated, as it is final. A report of a death can not be exaggerated, only accurate or false (inaccurate). A report of a death can not be more or less accurate or more or less exaggerated, it can only be factually correct or not, e.g. reports of a local high school math conference's official statement that 2+2=4.3 are grossly exaggerated makes as much sense as the statement about reports of deaths being grossly exaggerated.
