Why isn't the way that the media reports the lies and misrepresentations and suppresses facts that they don't want the public to know considered to be a violation of the First Amendment? It's been proven over and over that public opinion and thus public action can be swayed by an unending onslaught of misinformation. Since it's widely held that television has the greatest impact on the psyche of America, shouldn't there be some way to clean up the garbage that's foisted on the population of our country. If the news media isn't held responsible for the prevarications, omitted facts, misinformation we will continue down the road of being a brainwashed society. We are lied to, we are disrespected, we are led down the garden path every day.
