NASA doesn't do that
Unlike ElReg commenters and some sections of the press NASA is interested in the data.
The title of this article in PNAS is Depleted carbon isotope compositions observed at Gale crater, Mars.
The title of the press release is NASA’s Curiosity Rover Measures Intriguing Carbon Signature on Mars.
As for your comment "might have been produced by ancient bacteria but probably wasn't",
Wrong, wrong, wrong.
Curiosity found that some samples had a higher concentration of Carbon 12 versus Carbon 13. On Earth this is due to bacteria selectively using Carbon 12. NASA posits that there might be a biological origin but that it could also due to non biological processes although any non biological process would have to account for the Carbon 12 excess occurring in only some of the samples. They do not favor any explanation.
Personally, given the observations going back to the Viking labeled release (LR) experiment, through the various Martian meteorites, right up to these observations, Occam's Razor says that primitive Martian life is the best comprehensive answer.
