While I can understand the impulse if this were to be implemented I think it should be first applied to the likes of John Kerry who says stupid things like:
The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it’s exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.
This was in regard to the Tea Party who he claims “held the country hostage” during the debt ceiling debates.
“Everybody knows”? I would like to suggest Senator Kerry reexamine the last election results in terms of how many people believe what the Tea Party candidates have to say.
