To the rule “Stances”, add:-

If more newspapers have a Pro Stance on a Subject than have an Anti Stance on that Subject, then that Subject is considered to be Supported. If more newspapers have an Anti Stance on a Subject than have a Pro Stance on that Subject, then that Subject is considered to be Condemned.

Reword the rule “Public Opinion” to:-

Each Subject has a “Public Opinion” value, being an integer greater than -101 and less than 101. The Public Opinion of each Subject is tracked in this rule as follows:

  • War: 0
  • Science: 0
  • Government: 0
  • Royalty: 0
  • Sport: 0
  • Celebrity: 0

As a weekly action, the Mogul may Reflect Opinion by adding 10 to the Public Opinion of each Subject which is Supported (to a maximum of 100), and deducting 10 from the Public Opinion of each Subject which is Condemned (to a minimum of -100).

Bringing Public Opinion back into the ruleset, and adding a mechanism for adjusting those values.

for Though the adding 10 seems weird. Would rather have it be proportional so 6 pro 1 anti gets more than 4 pro 3 anti.

for I agree with Clucky; besides, isn’t the “to a maximum of 100” ambiguous? Does it mean that 95+10 = 100, or that you cannot add 10 to a subject that is already higher than 90?
