Some countries dont allow News stations to lie! what a shame!

It is really sad that the US allowed so called news stations to tell lies to the American public when the Fairness Doctrine was passed with Ronald Reagan... I believe that this marked the beginning of the end for our democracy and the middle class having less and less rights!

"Harper's attempts to make lying legal on Canadian television is a stark admission that right wing political ideology can only dominate national debate through dishonest propaganda. Since corporate profit-taking is not an attractive vessel for populism, a political party or broadcast network that makes itself the tool of corporate and financial elites must lie to make its agenda popular with the public. In the Unites States, Fox News and talk radio, the sock puppets of billionaires and corporate robber barons have become the masters of propaganda and distortion on the public airwaves. Fox News's notoriously biased and dishonest coverage of the Wisconsin's protests is a prime example of the brand of news coverage Canada has smartly avoided."

we can fool some of the people all of the time and help the repubs win elections!

Rupert Murdoch has been allowed to have his right wing propaganda news station (Fox News) to flourish with false information brainwashing many ignorant Americans who actually believed the lies this station has been shoving down their minds for the last 2 decades!  ...This has led to stolen elections and people being misled into voting for the very rich and poweful's favorite candidates!
