The Obama Administration Won’t Let This Lie

“Bloggers have First Amendment protections, federal court rules”

They have been trying to shut us up- because they can’t control us. This news if from FOX News:

GRANTS PASS, Ore. – A federal appeals court ruled Friday that bloggers and the public have the same First Amendment protections as journalists when sued for defamation: If the issue is of public concern, plaintiffs have to prove negligence to win damages.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a new trial in a defamation lawsuit brought by an Oregon bankruptcy trustee against a Montana blogger who wrote online that the court-appointed trustee criminally mishandled a bankruptcy case.

The appeals court ruled that the trustee was not a public figure, which could have invoked an even higher standard of showing the writer acted with malice, but the issue was of public concern, so the negligence standard applied.”

Here come a string of IRS audits for Judge Andrew D. Hurwitz.
