    News is never supposed to be about Censorship. Write the story anyway and get an expert's opinion if you are concerned about the story. That is what keeps it from spreading through the back web.

    If nothing is said about an idea, and it is spread about on the back web, it becomes something "the man doesn't want us to know about!". It is better to tell them about it and discredit the idea than ignore it.

    As a media reviewer, there are a number of things that I look for in a news outlet;

    Do stories have multiple reputable sources?
    Are they misframed?
    Are they editorials attempting to pass themselves off as a news item?
    Does the publisher disclose any details to any stories that they may have any interest in how the story is perceived?

    Just to name a few. Personally I do not see any of these done correctly or done consistently done at Yahoo News. And to be honest, unless I need an example for a lecture on a subject such as "Framing" I avoid using your feed as a news source.

    My students know that I consider "News Outlets" like yours and Google's to be nothing more than "News Aggregation" sites with as much bibliographic and research pedigree as Wikipedia.
