          • Right to self-defense in the media

            Require media outlets to provide all those criticized the opportunity to request time to defend their character, reputation, or ideas - in the same medium at a prime time hour - and be given adequate time to make their case. In other words, make it possible to counter bad speech and ideas with good speech and ideas - and let the audience have access to a wider range of debate. Once they hear the whole case pro and con one trusts they will be able to be more discerning about true and false information and bad and good arguments.

            • The only solution is integrity.

              It's not a new concept but a concept it must remain, integrity is what is lacking... stock holdings... while a business has a fiduciary duty to it's stock holders where is their duty to the public? It's okay to rob, cheat or steal as long as the bottom line is met... profit. What needs to remain open and uncensored is the internet. So what we seem to be up against isn't about government policies its about corporate policies and it seems those policies just boil down to profits.
              What really needs to happen is mass boycott but...lol That won't happen...

              • Unbias News, No Ratings for News and Break up of media conglomrates

                The news stations that cater toward a certian audience like Fox and CNN should at the begining of the programs tell the viewes that their information is for the audience. There should also be stations that report the news straight up with no slants, no ratings so they won't having to worry about enteraining anyone. Also these media conglomrates owning all the media makes only let a few voices heard and their information in some way protects or uplifts the company they own. There should be a group that regulates news that comes off as objective and check the sources…
