Re: class action lawsuit
Though, the so-called mainstream media is clearly little more than the Ministry of Propaganda for the democrat party, class action suits are not appropriate for such circumstances.
Due to prior US S. Ct. decisions, e.g., Sullivan, the defamation bar is VERY high for public figures. That said, the NYT is well beyond the safe point of the limb regarding Palin and will likely loose unless they can throw enough money at lawyers to make it impossible for her to continue the action. Unless they can get enormous amounts from Soros, etc., they will likely settle, demanding that the records be sealed. That's how it's done, folks.
No. The so-called mainstream media recognizes no responsibility to fairly and accurately report upon events.
