Truth in Media
The legislature must enact a law to require truth in media; to uphold accountability within journalistic ethics; to protect the American public from the quagmire of deceit and fraud perpetrated against them under the guise of "the news." The media, whether broadcast or print, must be held accountable to tell the truth when presenting information to the public as fact. The media has a responsibility to the truth. Americans have lost faith in the news and can no longer trust the media to present truthful information. Journalistic ethics must prevail in order for America to stay accurately informed. Allowing misinformation and lies disseminated as fact is a disservice to the American public and is tantamount to fraud. Whether conservative, moderate, or liberal, everyone deserves to let the truth speak for itself and have faith that what we learn from the media is factual, verifiable and free from bias. The legislature must take immediate action to protect truth by enacting a Truth in Media law.
