It's not a noose!

Why does the media keep referring to the hand-pull / Wallace thing as a "noose."

From Merriam-Webster: "a loop with a slipnot that binds closer the more it is drawn.
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/noose

It shouldn't take 15 FBI agents to just examine the rope and proclaim: That's not a noose.

EDIT: Hmmm.... I'm still trying to find pictures online of the knot. I see several different pictures claiming to be vaid that are different, so don't really know what to trust. Can anyone confirm the knot is a slipnot or not? The thing is, a slipnot would make a poor handle if it were slipping every time you tried to grab it.
