Lying

I took a class last semester that gave me an introduction on the subject of virtue ethics. There was one philosopher, Kant, who said that all lying is immoral. Everybody in the class thought not all lying is bad and that he was somewhat wrong in this statement. It takes extreme situations to make this statement untrue.

I respect everybody's freedom of speech and even believe that we don't have enough freedom in America. The media has the right to make as much money as possible so they can make a profit for those who are putting their hard-earned time and money into the company. Also, there should be almost no government intervention, especially in the media. However, the media is the messenger of most of the news in the United States. They can't have an explicit agenda, sensalationize, or lie to the American public because it has a major effect on how we think about certain things. I know that sports is really not important in the grand scheme of life, but billions of dollars are being spent and the vast majority of America identify themselves as fans of a sport. This is relatively new for the athletics arena, but it is an oncurring problem in the politcal spectrum. It corrupts the minds of many people and ruins the democratic process. I am definitely not the first to say this, and I certainly won't be the last, but there needs to be some sort of oversight on the media because they are very powerful.
