These theories were based on the hypothesis that all the matter in the universe was created in one big bang at a particular time in the past.
That's the first sentence in which the term 'big bang' was used in print to describe the cosmological concept. From then on, almost every time it was explained the scientists used the words created, originated, started, began, etc. Most scientists still discuss the Big Bang as the beginning of all time, energy, and matter - indeed the beginning of the universe - not only as "as far back as we can see". So it's simply wrong to say that the journalists got it wrong by using the word "created".
