Fair Comment or OTT ?

David McKittrick seems to expect trouble when Adair is released.
Belfast braced for new loyalist feud as ‘Mad Dog’ Adair nears jail release.
Is this fair comment or does this sort of article itself contribute to the possibility of trouble?While McKittrick writes that Belfast is ‘bracing itself’ he doesn’t quote any sources to back up his claim that trouble is expected. I don’t consider this to be one of his better pieces.
