I suggest "potentially defaming, slanderous or libelous"
Question: What is a "false light" claim?
Answer: Some states allow people to sue for damages that arise when
others place them in a false light. Information presented in a "false
light" is portrayed as factual, but creates a false impression about
the plaintiff (i.e., a photograph of plaintiffs in an article about
sexual abuse, because it creates the impression that the depicted
persons are victims of sexual abuse). False light claims are subject
to the constitutional protections discussed above.
Question: What is a "fair and true report"?
Answer: A report is "fair and true" if it captures the substance,
gist, or sting of the proceeding. The report need not track verbatim
the underlying proceeding, but should not deviate so far as to produce
a different effect on the reader.
Editors acting with malice who create articles just to fill
Controversy and Criticism sections and leave everything else empty is
what BLP is trying to stop.

"negative" is blatantly throwing NPOV out the window.
Controversial is definitely better than negative. Not sure
there is an ideal 1 word summary, but it definitely
shouldn't be dependent on whether or not it's positive or
negative. Maybe doubtful, risky, dubious, unsettled, or
unreliable. Today's living bio example of choice: Mark Foley.
