10. Tell it to Scalia.

jk.


One news organization is a single entity. Yes, it is comprised of more than one person, but saying " a news organization conspired" is a problem. Saying "a number of employees of a new organization conspired" could be correct, though, if true.

And I would suggest that the 'failure to speak' is a breach of duty for the 4th estate.


Duty in what sense? Not a legal duty. Maybe a moral duty as to a Presidential candidate, but agreement to breach a moral duty may not be a conspiracy.


Indeed, it's the centerpiece of their existence.


Ideally, perhaps. In reality, many news organizations have become something very different.
