(Reuters) - Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump said on Friday if elected he would "open up" libel laws to make it easier to sue the media.

Speaking at a rally in Fort Worth, Texas, Trump said the change was necessary to combat what he described as the "dishonesty" of major American newspapers.
