Media Garbage

Don't you wish all media devices had a lie detector built in? I mean, wouldn't it be cool if, when you're watching or listening to a "fair and balanced" reporter, a little light would come on indicating a conscious avoidance of the truth?

And wouldn't it be neat if, during a commercial, a pie would sail in from off-screen and smack a liar in the face as they tried to sell you yet another worthless product? Or, especially during this political season, an electrical shock were administered for every innuendo, misleading statement, euphemism, or outright lie that was uttered?
