It's a fact of life I guess - cut and paste articles with a little theatrical embellishment by experts who get hired for the letters after the name. It used to be called "hack" reporting before the advent of word processors.

Measat 3 has reached graveyard orbit. It did not involve the "fiery doom" and uncontrolled tumbling as speculated by SPACE.com.

I've summarised everything I could find here and included a couple of plots showing the orbit and the drift around GEO
