Double Talk From The First Lady?

Why is the NY Post the only media outlet covering this little "slight of hand" trick by the First Lady?

"The catchall is this: "The Federal government . . . should provide clear, actionable guidance to states, providers and families on how to increase physical activity, improve nutrition, and reduce screen time."

"How is that not telling people what to do?"

Are we now seeing the First Lady establish public policy for Federal agencies? I've not read the reports and "recommendations" mentioned in this article. But wouldn't/shouldn't the question of a First Lady establishing public policy and increased regulations be of interest to other news and media outlets beyond the New York Post? Or do we need to have the National Enquirer bring in the same team that broke the Edwards scandal?

Just asking.
