Dear editor: Once upon a time, there was a place where fair and just laws ruled the printed, spoken and broadcast word across the land. It was illegal/unlawful to make false or unproven claims against, for or about any person, product or thing. Then a dark cloud, aka SCOTUS, appeared on the horizon claiming that since people "lie," that anyone claiming to be a "person" can say and do anything they want. Corporations, given the status of "person," they could from that point on "lie." The "truth" became whatever someone wanted to claim it was unless proven otherwise. Reality became a trip through Fantasyland.
