Phony Quotations

There is an epidemic of slandering public figures by putting false quotations in their mouths. Even supreme court judges are targets. I think a public figure is fair game for ridicule and heavy judgement, but not this. Doing that should be a criminal offense, not just grounds for an expensive lawsuit. The cost of prosecuting should be born by the state and should not require proving damages.
