Expand Ofcom or create another organisation for the monitoring of the reliability of information in newspapers and on tv.

Why is this idea important?

There are serious questions about the bias in the news media. Many are worried that we'll end up with a British varient of Fox News if Ofcom is reduced and the bias in newspapers is well known (and became especially obvious during the election).

There has to be a clear divide between opinion and fact. This can be done easily by referencing where the information comes from. It is strange to me that the scientific community has strict rules on references and reliability, while news that is broadcast to millions of people can be so blatantly misinforming and manipulative.

This is also an idea that can be implemented in politics. Too many times we hear completely different statistics from different parties.
