Do web teams of newspapers normally quote other newspapers?  The DNA Web Team and FE (Financial Express) Online this week quoted articles from TOIIndian Express and HT in which Muslims working for Yogi Adityanath had been interviewed. DNA did this on two consecutive days, March 20 and 21. While only the March 20 report had a line in which the Web Team had passed its own judgment - ``However, the religious leader, often vilified for his brand of politics...'', the FE Online article   read like an opinion piece. It even included this comment, without backing it up with any proof: ``The facts of the Mutt show that Yogi has been wrongly painted as anti-Muslim by the media. His followers say that Yogi does not oppose Muslims but Wahabi Islam, which is believed to be behind the rise of terrorism across the world.''  Intriguing.
