I pledge to request congress introduce new legistation insuring the truthfulness of reporting.

In the days leading up to the current war in Iraq , Fow News fired a news caster for refusing to report false news. She tried to sue for wrongful termination, and the courts said Fox was in the right and that news agencies are under no obligation to tell the truth.

I would ask congress to create a law specifing that if you claim to be a news agency, you must report the news as truthfully as you can, or risk fines and if you are a broadcast service, risk your broadcast license being suspended.

We rely on news to be truthful to make educated choices in our lives, and we need to be given the best and most honest information possible.
