Fake news usually presents itself with real facts that are distorted by the simple use of carefully selected adjectives that encourage an incorrect conclusion.

Breach of contract was the issue of the suit. A reader of the commentary might not even realize that there is a contract between the counties and the state. A contract is a legally binding agreement that is not subject to arbitrary change by one party without agreement by all parties.
