Make the media tell the truth

Additional Information

The printed media in the UK is well-respected, and it is important that we have a free press. However, they should not be able to misinform by printing out and out lies. They have an enormous influence over public opinion and use this for their own gain. Such power has lead to the recent overstepping of the mark (the phone-tapping scandal), but there are many other examples where they deliberately mis-inform the public. I would like to petition parliament to make our newspapers accountable for what they print. They should not be able to deliberately print mis-information but must print the FACTS! A greater scrutiny is needed so that they no longer have the power over our government.

This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

There's already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue.

You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.
