    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — In a story Aug. 20 about legislation to warn consumers about recording TVs, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Samsung changed its policy on recording conversations. The company changed its manuals to reflect that its smart TVs do not record or store conversations. AP also erroneously reported that Samsung supports the legislation by Assemblyman Mike Gatto, AB1116. The company has not taken a public position on the bill.
