SICK & TIRED OF ALL THE LYING

October 14, 2016

Sick of lying media pundits? So am I, and I wrote this article in 2009 asking for a law to stop the political lies, at the very least. Suing for slander just doesn’t work, I’ve never seen a successful outcome, & only vaguely recall one attempt many years ago. The only way we’ll ever get truth in major media outlets is to make lying illegal.

Here’s what I said back then; posted on FB Oct 14, 2009
“I’m sick and tired of the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, and other right-wingnut propagandists using the media to lie and promote hatred. I’m also sick of Fox News’ cable news channel’s outright lying and promoting an extreme right-wing agenda as “news,” and giving the right-wing hatred promoters a highly visible forum; a forum used specifically to incite what can only end in violence done by the susceptibly ignorant fools at whom they are aiming their lies and fear mongering. Enough. These “news media” people are breaking well established law with broadcasts akin to shouting “fire” in a crowded theater, and it’s time they were stopped and brought to justice. In addition, Congress should make “Lying in the Media for Political Gain” a federal felony, with a long prison sentence for repeat individual offenders, the special interests that fund it, and the media executives who knowingly allow and even encourage the practice. End this greedy lunacy, once and for all. We need news of issues and subsequent elections based upon truthful and factual information, NOT the lies and fear tactics of the greedy that’s currently allowed to be reported as fact. Make telling the truth to the public the law of the land!”

It’s now 7 years later, & the lying has gotten worse, not better…
