It seems like the old joke How can you tell if a politician is lying-His lips are moving applies not only to politicians but police and corporations alike.

As a voter how can we even begin to form a opinion based on facts when the press does nothing to address the lies being told everyday. As a child I was told it was a sin to lie. This does not appear to be true any more.

Should we not approach the press and ask for more responsible reporting so we Americans can formulate our opinions and conclusions before the next election?

Probably be better to turn to the 21st century's answer to MSM, the internet. 'Asking' the press to be responsible is probably like spitting into the wind.
