You're probably right about them playing things to get more funding,
they obviously should have better pics since they also did a ground
expedition to the site:
"On a later trip to the crater site, the team led by Eagles mapped the
ice surface in great detail with a laser-scanning instrument.
They also surveyed the area with a radar instrument that penetrates
the upper surface of the ice and snow. A number of smaller circular
and sub-circular structures were spotted nearby on this trip.
It is expected the team will publish their findings soon.
They are hoping to hunt for meteorites around the site. Finding one
would remove doubts."
