The media just don't want to be exposed to legal action.

That may be true in the UK, but in the US, there's essentially zero chance of a successful suit by a public figure against a media outlet for claiming the former lied in a public statement. And indeed many journalists and commentators in the US have no qualms about accusing public figures of lying. The biggest mainstream-media outlets may show some editorial reluctance to make outright claims of falsehood against politicians, but I believe that's largely a show of propriety.
