US466 - Public Organization to Fact-Check Political Ads
Political candidates should not be able to broadcast lies to the American public. Rather than sifting through this meretricious propapanda after-the-fact and trying to correct false impressions created in voters' minds, we should have a politically-independent public organization fact-check ads before they're aired or printed.
Also, the news has to stop referencing twitter posts as a creditable news source.
If you think that an organization given power to decide what political advertisements are allowed to air would stay "politically-independent" for longer than ten seconds after its creation, you haven't been paying attention for the past few decades. Giving one organization the power to enforce its opinions about what the "truth" and the "facts" are by banning all political speech it considers outside those boundaries is just setting up a system whereby one party would have the power to simply shut down the other party's political messaging entirely.
