Even a newspaper is bound by false-advertising laws. If they advertise that they print "all the news fit to print", and in practice are clearly doing otherwise, they're liable.

You have a better suggestion? Shall we simply whine endlessly about their malfeasance, or shall we do something substantial about it?

Liable for what? What defines whether they are "doing otherwise"?

You have a better suggestion?

Do I have a better suggestion for what? The law?

1)Stop buying and advertising in any paper you don't like.

2)Try to get as many people to do the same.

3)Start an alternative paper/network and counter the BS.

Suing them for frivilous stuff is NOT substantial and definitely not productive. You won't find a good attorney to take a case he knows he might sanctioned in.
