This totally pisses me off. Why the hell are people allowed to lie in media?
For example people are telling everywhere that marijuana destroys brain cells, even tho it has been scientifically proven like 10 years ago that it actually protects brain cells from external harms like alcohol and other poisons and doesent destroy them or harm them in any way. Because people lie about this thing, they are deceiving the audience into believing to something that isnt true, what really pisses me off is that these people are usually so called experts in this matter. Why do such ignorant fools even get to a position where they can be called professionals? I think everyone who has gained this level of reputation where they can be called professionals in something should lose their authority in what ever they are called professionals in.
Another thing is politicians lying in media(let it be about politics or personal stuff/fuck ups(ofc they dont have to comment if they dont want to))..
Im usually against new laws, because i think laws just fuck up peoples own moral thinking. But on this matter i think that there should be new law about lying/spreading false information in media. Something like deceiving audience and i think the punishment should be big even when its told to a small audience, and really big when its something in the news(like cnn or such) and it should depend on how many people that person is deceiving thru the media. These lies should also ALWAYS corrected(there should be law for this too) if someone notices that they were spreading false information.
What do you think about this?
