I totally agree with you GG...I use to co-own a small site and we had rules as well as disclaimers.
> I think that if the newspaper had a written notice somewhere that said they do not endorse any materials submitted to them, something like "the views of those writing in to this paper are solely those of the authors, and do not necessarily represent those of the editorial board", then no, I do not think that the editors would have to address a specific article written that might be inflammatory.
> Dr. Bob has a similar notice, stating that he is only responsible for his own posts. That is not as specific as what I wrote above, but one can infer he means the same.
