News of the Shire

No marshalling points are received until this card is stored at Barad-dûr during his organization phase. Only the first News of the Shire stored is worth 3 marshalling points, all others are only worth 1 marshalling point each. If stored, The Shire becomes a Border-land [-me_bl-] , and Bag End becomes a Border-hold [-me_bh-].

Hero events cannot target or affect minion sites, and vice versa. News of the Shire is
an exception.
To reflect the intention expressed in "CRF, Rulings by Term, Site" I propose the following erratum:

Playable during the site phase on an untapped character at Bag End. Tap the character. No marshalling points are received until this card is stored at Barad-dûr during his organization phase. Only the first News of the Shire stored is worth 3 marshalling points, all others are only worth 1 marshalling point each. If stored, The Shire becomes a Border-land [-me_bl-] , and all versions of Bag End become a Border-hold [-me_bh-].
We will not speak of such things even in the morning of the Shire.

I think it makes sense to incorporate the CRF into a particular card when that card is an exception to some rule. Presumably "all versions" was intended?

The original post failed to mention the CRF Rulings on News of the Shire
