I think that state and federal campaign laws should include a provision that results in hefty fines for any candidate who publishes an ad which states as fact something which can be proven to be false. This wouldn't stop a lot of the negative and misleading information in campaign ads, but maybe it would help curtail it a bit. And it would mean there was a direct negative consequence if a campaign lies in print or in other media.
