“Canada’s Radio Act requires that ‘a licenser may not broadcast … any false or misleading news.’ The provision has kept Fox News and right-wing talk radio out of Canada and helped make Canada a model for liberal democracy and freedom.”
America NEEDS an anti-lying law for the news. The First Amendment does NOT protect lying and false advertising.
This must be a TOP priority for activists. We can march and chant till we’re blue in the face and it’ll still be nothing compared to the billion-dollar-funded national propaganda machine for the right wing that snows a good half of our population.
