Weighing evidence on the Shroud of Turin (Journalist Accuracy)

The News & Observer (Raleigh/Durham NC) has a short piece that they credit in measure to the LA Times. 

Some of the findings of efforts to authenticate or debunk the Shroud of Turin, which allegedly covered the body of Jesus after his crucifixion:

Supporting evidence

A 1978 research team found that the shroud was not painted, stained or dyed and concluded that the bloodstains were real.

Discrediting evidence

Radiocarbon dating by three separate labs placed the creation of the Shroud between 1260 and 1390.

. . .

No mention, at all, of the fact that these radiocarbon tests are at most discredited and at the very least meet the criteria of reasonable doubt.
