Are news organizations under a legal obligation not to edit their product in such a way as to 'push' for their cause?

Katie Couric is a public figure too.

I guarantee she said each of those words and the context is not important according to her own legal team. :evil2:

The Yahoo News anchor expressed her concern over people falling for fake news and called upon her fellow journalists to do a better job at helping people understand "complicated issues."

No no no NO NO NOOOOOO!!!! You need to STOP trying to "help us understand" the issues!!! Just report the facts, and LET US FIGURE IT OUT!! STOP TALKING TO US LIKE WE ARE CHILDREN!!!!!!!
