What it means is that accusing it of being unauthoritative is not an appropriate criticism.

It also misses the mark to call it unfair. The starting point of the entire story was based on the premise "Can I discover something that will help me believe that this guy I and a few of his really like personally committed this horrible act?"

When she tells you explicitly from the start that this is her point of view, it misses the point to criticize it for being unfair in this particular way.
