Dominion suing the lying liars

I read about this in… either NYT or The Economist this morning… can’t recall. I’m very :popcorn:


Any ideas about suing some of these news organizations for pushing vaccine misinformation? I could see a wife whose husband refused to get vaccinated and died of Covid going after them. No idea how that could hold up in court. I definitely think this is how you protect free speech and combat lying though. Sue the liars every time their lies cause damage.

The New York Times recently won a case brought by Sarah Palin. But:

This will be interesting. I’m sure there is a high bar for Dominion to clear for them to prevail and I don’t think any of the early claims are problematic as that was legitimate news even if it was relatively quickly debunked.

I think it’s Fox continuing to push it after it was debunked and Dominion asked for and did not get corrections is where Fox seems like they may get in trouble.
