What do you do when the Media is no longer a lapdog?

Establish the Ministry of Truth and repeal propaganda bans:

Nah, the media are biased only towards sensationalism. </sarcasm>

So how come they don't sensationalize how some news outlets have misled their viewers?

Check out the history of VNR's, or video propaganda pieces disguised as news:

Newspaper fires editorial editor for anti-Obama headline | The Daily Caller

Welcome to Chattanooga, one of hundreds of cities throughout this great nation struggling to succeed in spite of your foolish policies that limit job creation, stifle economic growth and suffocate the entrepreneurial spirit. Forgive us if you are not greeted with the same level of Southern hospitality that our area usually bestows on its distinguished guests. You see, we understand you are in town to share your umpteenth different job creation plan during your time in office. If it works as well as your other job creation programs, then thanks, but no thanks. We’d prefer you keep it to yourself.
I wonder if this writer knows he basically regurgitated the first use of "laissez faire"?

When asked what the gov't can do to help business:

(Trans: "Leave it be, that should be the motto of all public powers, as the world is civilized ... That we cannot grow except by lowering our neighbors is a detestable notion! Only malice and malignity of heart is satisfied with such a principle and our (national) interest is opposed to it. Leave it be, for heaven's sake! Leave it be!)
