  •  maybe we should start a movement (9+ / 0-)

    to have this be the law of the land,
    (since it is, unfortunately needed):

    a bureau of some sort,
    like snopes or whatever,

    that fact-checks every damn thing
    that every one of 'em says.

    and then it gets posted in every newspaper,
    every on-line source, every teevee source;

    and they would all get a rating,
    like 25%, or 60% truthful.

    geez.  this could change the political landscape.

    •  They'd just staff it with corporate hacks, (1+ / 0-)

      like they've done with EPA, FDA, FAA and all the alphabet agencies. Those bodies were originally put in place as fact checkers.
