Politics is dirty but each person will have to account for their deeds even if they are a political persuader.

The basis for the discussion in the Bible says we should not lie or stretch the truth about people.  No matter what your profession is, this is true.  Also the Radio  Fairness doctrine instituted in 1949.

The Fairness Doctrine had two basic elements: It required broadcasters to devote some of their airtime to discussing controversial matters of public interest, and to air contrasting views regarding those matters. Stations were given wide latitude as to how to provide contrasting views: It could be done through news segments, public affairs shows or editorials.

Formally adopted as an FCC rule in 1949 and repealed in 1987 by Ronald Reagan’s pro-broadcaster FCC, the doctrine can be traced back to the early days of broadcast regulation.
