Yes, but you first need to follow the statory procedures under the Fair Credit Reporting Act to dispute the inaccurate information. If the reporting agencies fails to remove incorrect information, then you might have a claim for damages. There may also be a law in your state that provides more protection that the federal law.

People depend on the news companies to report accurate news. News companies have the resources to throughly check out their sources for reliability and accuracy. For that reason, some would argue that they should be penalized for reporting inaccurate news. To these people, it is a matter of responsibility. Others may argue that there are times when they should not be penalized, such as if someone intentionally gives wrong information, but then again, the argument for responsibility and thoroughly checking out information and sources could be made on the side of penalizing them.

I think you have to be in the military to have army car insurance. Because military members and their families move around a lot, they were penalized in the past. For example, people who were deployed often canceled their insurance policies while they were overseas. This caused a gap in their insurance, which insurance companies penalized. Now, many insurance companies (GEICO and the United Services Automobile Association, or USAA, being the first to develop such services) offer to suspend or have lower rates for people who are deployed. Thus they have no gap
