The April 23 roundup of matters before the U.S. Supreme Court indicates an odd irony on the subject of lying. On the one hand, the court is described as “highly skeptical of laws that try to police false statements during political campaigns.” On the other hand, “justices voiced deep skepticism Monday about Coca-Cola’s Pomegranate Blueberry juice that is 99.4 percent apple and grape juice.”

Couldn’t we have the same standard of truth for political campaigns that we have for pomegranate juice?
