Media ... should there be enforcable rules

As I was watch a movie, a breaking news press conference was aired. I am all for being well informed and have no problem with this practice .... however, the breaking news was a political campaign follow up by the president to call your representative to support his political agenda.

So here is the question: Should this be a paid political advertisement not a national breaking news issue.

We are seeing more of this political tactic ... if free prime time is given to ANY incumbent should there be free rebuttal time to the opposition? If it is a political statement should it be preceeded by this is a "paid political ad" and not be allowed to interrupt regular programming.
