WTVT FOX-13 Conspired to Broadcast Fake Business News?

Men take more pains to mask than mend.--Poor Richard

Steve Wilson:
For what is believed to be the first time ever, two television journalists have challenged the broadcast license of a station on grounds it deliberately broadcast false and distorted news reports...The challenge stems from what the reporters say was a year-long experience inside the station, where they resisted FOX managers who repeatedly ordered them to distort a series of news reports about the secret use of an artificial hormone injected in dairy cattle throughout Florida and beyond...The journalists also charge that WTVT has violated federal rules with regard to keeping on file viewer complaints and comments.
