And today’s story of NYT caving to the liberal mob, changing their headline of Trump’s speech, is another shameful example of their so-called journalism.
Good luck to Palin in moving forward with her lawsuit. Let’s hope she wins...bigly.
Via The Hill.
The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday ruled that Sarah Palin can move forward with her defamation lawsuit against The New York Times, two years after a lower court judge dismissed the case.
Palin had sued the newspaper for defamation over an editorial that tied an ad from the former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential nominee to the 2011 shooting of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (R-Ariz.).
The three-judge appeals panel found that Palin’s case had wrongly been dismissed and that her lawsuit “plausibly states a claim for defamation and may proceed to full discovery.”….
“We are disappointed in the decision and intend to continue to defend the action vigorously,” The New York Times said in response.
Palin filed the suit after The New York Times ran a June 2017 editorial in response to the shooting at a GOP congressional baseball practice that left several people, including then-House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), wounded.
The editorial stated that Palin’s political action committee had run an ad depicting Democratic lawmakers with their faces under crosshairs. The ad had shown their districts instead.
The Times quickly issued a correction, pulling the parts of the editorial linking the Palin ad and the Giffords shooting.
“An earlier version of this editorial incorrectly stated that a link existed between political incitement and the 2011 shooting of Representative Gabby Giffords. In fact, no such link was established,” the correction read.
Palin in her original suit alleged that the newspaper falsely accused her of “inciting a mass shooting at a political event in January 2011” and ran a claim it “knew to be false.”….
