    People frequently refer to a court case that Fox won, which essentially gives the media the right to lie...

    Appellate Court Rules Media Can Legally Lie.

    By Mike Gaddy. Published Feb. 28, 2003

    The court did not dispute the heart of Akre’s claim, that Fox pressured her to broadcast a false story to protect the broadcaster from having to defend the truth in court, as well as suffer the ire of irate advertisers. Fox argued from the first, and failed on three separate occasions, in front of three different judges, to have the case tossed out on the grounds there is no hard, fast, and written rule against deliberate distortion of the news.

    The attorneys for Fox, owned by media baron Rupert Murdoch, argued the First Amendment gives broadcasters the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on the public airwaves.

    I can't for the life of me figure out what made this thread worthy of being revived 2 years later...
