In an attempt to address the rampant lying and truth bending at the debates, here's a modest proposal:
With the millions of dollars in advertising revenue the networks make on these debates, there is no excuse for not implementing such a system immediately. The networks could employ a team of fact checkers from a spectrum of news organizations with access to the appropriate news sources and databases of information required to check the veracity of the candidates' statements in real time.
It is simply unacceptable for persons who are running for the office of the President to stand on the stage and flat out lie to the public and not be held accountable for what they say.
If you agree with these new rules, please sign the petition lined here, and share widely on your social media networks!
