The very purpose of government is to LIMIT power to any one government official -- for this very reason!

J Carlton, Calgary

This could apply to the media as well. Once they get a hold of a story, the facts are forever lost.

Carlton, I couldn't agree with you more!

This a true observation of human nature, and I am assuming we're all human as well. The problem with allowing government officials get away with the lie is that they have the power to affect everyone with it.

That is the truth.
