IMO we need lawsuits, and lots of them. Sue them on fraud charges for deliberately misinforming their audience, who have the just expectation that the media is telling the truth. Sue them for campaign finance violations, on the grounds that their bias constitutes an illegal and undeclared campaign contribution to the Democrats. Sue them for discrimination against conservatives in hiring and promotion. Sue them for the various libel and slander they pour out daily.

They don't fear complaints. They DO fear lawsuits, the more expensive to defend the better.

I'd have to say I totally agree with you.

This is liberal-like thinking. As such, it is absurd. First, a newspaper owes no duty to anyone and second, virtually any issue involving content is protected by First Amendment guarantees.
