Chris Jones started this petition to Parliament, House Of Commons, Boris Johnson

I think its time media outlets such as The Daily Mail and The Express (there are others)be held accountable for the sensationalist reporting that is constantly sinking to new levels.

The current situation with coronavirus has been made considerably worse by the papers driving fear and panic into millions of innocent people. We live in an age where depression and suicide is at an all time high and it is incredibly irresponsible of these outlets to drive fear into as many people as possible.

I propose that they be regulated to a much more stringent level and be held criminally responsible for inciting fear and assisiting in misinformation which ultimately has also fueled panic buying. Its is the medias responsibility to report fact not opinion. Things need to change, there is no age restriction on access to these papers and the young and old alike are trusting and the way the media are acting is incredibly dangerous and I would like to call on Boris Johnson and Parliament to step in and prevent matters getting worse.
