What can we do to limit the effects of big corporate advertising on our nightly news?

Question by rabble rouser: What can we do to limit the effects of big corporate advertising on our nightly news?
If we reach a point where we can no longer trust the news to be fair with us, we will be very unaware of the world we live in.

What can we as viewers and listeners do to keep the news honest?
How can we compete with large pharmaceutical companies and expensive lobbyists and marketing companies?

Sierra Corporate Design is the entity suing two spam activists, who revealed that Jerry Reynolds was the largest spammer on Usenet. Sierra Corporate Design, the company, is owned by Reynolds. Both are located in North Dakota, and Jerry Reynolds was the owner of the sites, Netzilla.com and Sexzilla.com, in the mid to late 90’s. These sites were the largest spammers on Usenet.

Tomorrow, one of these guys being sued has to turn over computers and faces a court appearance in North Dakota (he lives in CA). Therefore the North Dakota court has no jurisdiction over him.
