Some media sources and people holding public office have constantly and consistently made inaccurate statements to the public. In light of this activity, I feel America must take steps to protect its citizens from inaccurate information used in making decisions in the process of voting.
In an effort to assure an intelligent voting citizenry, I feel it is necessary to enact a federal public information law to make any media source or person holding public office both civically and criminally liable for any statement made to the public which is inaccurate and not supported by facts.
This would in no way intrude on anyone’s first amendment right, it would only guarantee that expressions under that right for certain avenues which have a public duty are truthful and accurate. The American public should also have protections to receive accurate information from those they place in office, which have an obligation to report the facts.
It is essential that Americans receive accurate information so they can intelligently make decisions affecting the operation of government, those who run it and those who report on it.
If you agree, call, write, text, email those in public office and urge them to enact and or support such a bill.
