All news networks should refuse to broadcast Trump's White House address concerning the border wall until the Department of Justice withdraws or corrects Executive Order 13780, which contains false and misleading disinformation about terror threats and immigration.

The DOJ has already admitted that the report is disinformation and pledged to do better next time, but that is not enough. The record must be corrected, and the lies must stop. This is not a debate about percentages. This is about using factual information to protect Americans from actual terror threats.

As documented here, the report - Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States Initial Section 11 Report - was issued to support a lie that President Trump told this lie during his first address to a joint session of Congress: “according to data provided by the Department of Justice, the vast majority of individuals convicted of terrorism and terrorism-related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country.”

Actual data clearly shows that most terrorism convictions do not involve legal and illegal immigrants - the opposite is true. Most terrorists are born here, and our efforts to address terror need to reflect that. Instead, this lie is being used to take our attention and resources away from real threats and direct the attention and resources toward immigration crackdowns, border walls, and closed-door policies.

This is about facts, the truth and protecting America. We give news networks the public airways and our attention with faith that they will give us facts and truth. We already know that we cannot expect that from the White House, but that doesn't mean we have no choice but to hand Trump an even bigger megaphone than the one he lies through daily, the Office of the Presidency.
