  1. Guest experts appearing on news shows
    should be required to disclose whether
    they are paid experts and by whom they
    are paid.

    The Pentagon pays millions of dollars annually
    to retired military experts who then toe the
    Pentagon line. Similarly other experts, speaking
    about other issues must also disclose what, if
    any, financial ties they have to the issue on
    which they are speaking.

    The people need to be aware if these “experts”
    are actually paid lobbyists.
