Libel or Slander in Opinion

AP Stylebook (p. 338-68) -- News Writing (EL 227)

Libel and slander in some states are one in the same. But we are taught that libel is written and slander is spoken. But both of the do the same thing... defromation of character of using untrue facts. But what if someone does it in a opinion piece is it fair to sat that it is libel or slander.

I don't know. If it's an opinion piece, they should get used for libel because it is their opinion. I guess there would have to be some shread of truth or proof behind it.
