    Vaguely defensible ambiguity

    What does the bold parts mean in the following expression?

    Whether Farrow's mode of transport was Uber, a Yellow Cab or the subway, the road to ultimate public relations ignominy for NBC likely included vaguely defensible ambiguity.

    "How Did NBC Miss Out on a Harvey Weinstein Exposé?" asks The New York Times. "Why did NBC News let the Weinstein blockbuster get away? Once again, questions mount," was The Washington Post's thrust.

    Source: Should NBC News be cut any slack for passing on the Harvey Weinstein story?

    What do the parts in bold mean?
