5 contenders for the LDP's "crown"

Talk of a snap election and speculation (for the nth time) of a DPJ victory. Plus ca change, and all that.
Reminds me of the time there was a (semi) real wind of change in Japan and an editor of a regional daily felt it was time to rewrite my 'no news yet' copy and declare the DPJ victors, or more to the point, the LDP done for.
Yet, he was unable to take the "blame" for his own actions when the true results were in, and the LDP were still holding on to power.
Journalists who are willing to lie for personal gain, when they have acted incorrectly, and even if their jobs are at stake are behaving in a manner that continually destroys the credibility of their occupation; or it should.
So, what can be done about it?
