    We have to do something. The general public is having difficulty differentiating between opinion and reporting. News and entertainment lacks boundaries. Even news organizations are repeating information reported by other organizations as fact, without sourcing, or fact checks.

    It seems it would be difficult to reinstate the 'fairness doctrine' in light of new media, and since 'the cows have already left the stable.'

    Licensure seems the most effective and unobtrusive path to developing a distinction between 'news' and 'opinion.'

    I think the previous poster has missed the point. Most professional licenses are not Federal or even State supported. Most are developed through professional societies, as a way to lift the Knowledge, Skills and Ability standards of a profession. Most include training requirements, peer review of past experience and adherence to a code of ethics.

    Professional licenses are renewed annually, require continuing education and ethical behavior.

    Please tell me the problem with this approach.

    Let's hope we have movement in this area soon, before our children begin to think all reporting is... opinion, and all news if 'funny.'
