Uh oh .. Smiley


Will a Judge's Ruling Against CNN Make It Easier to Sue the Media?

A defamation suit is allowed to survive in a defeat not only for the cable news network, but also for the MPAA.

Donald Trump probably doesn't know about it, but the guy who once said he wanted to open up libel laws will probably be quite pleased by a new ruling from a Georgia federal judge. In fact, the stakes in this case are so high we wouldn't be surprised if it eventually lands before the U.S. Supreme Court and potentially makes it easier to sue entertainment and media outlets. There's a reason why the Motion Picture Association of America submitted an amicus brief in this case.

Uh oh, time to go shopping for a court with a different opinion, if possible. Actually, I think it is a double edged sword and could cut both ways, depending where suits take place.

I agree with that, but, .. as you KNOW, the liberal news media has become nearly totally leftist and biased, and are way out of control!

There seems to be little or no standards for them, and over the decades, they keep losing integrity, honesty, and don't possess a sense of fairness anymore and often mislead people in the manner of their reporting, mostly for purely political and ideological purposes, in their never ending quest to help and support the 'modern democrat liberal socialist party' and in their quest to help promote 'modern liberalism'..

They have become quite despicable!
