Did you know it's Legal for the Media to Lie to the American People?

Most of us know they do it, but did you know it’s openly and perfectly legal for the media and news to lie to the American People?

In February 2003, a Florida Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with an assertion by FOX News that there is no rule against distorting or falsifying the news in the United States.

Though this specific case is about FOX lying, the decision basically gives all media the right to lie to the public. How can our lawmakers justify this?
