Do you want to make heads explode at Fox News? [View all]

Then let's start a movement to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine.

Or better yet, let's have a law like Canada's that makes it illegal for a news organization to knowingly mislead the public. If such a law were enforced it would put and end to the misinformation and alternative reality concocted by the 'conservative entertainment complex' as David Frum recently dubbed it.

Rupert Murdoch fought a long battle in Canada to repeal the law that stops people from knowingly misleading the public in the guise of news. He lost that battle and in turn decided not to enter the Canadian market. Rupert can't do business where people demand that their journalists be honest brokers. Clearly we need such a law.

Your thoughts?
