    This is from your own link, quoting from the Supreme Court: Can presidential candidates sue media outlets for defamation? - National Constitution Center

    “A State cannot, under the First and Fourteenth Amendments, award damages to a public official for defamatory falsehood relating to his official conduct unless he proves ‘actual malice’ - that the statement was made with knowledge of its falsity or with reckless disregard of whether it was true or false,” said Justice William Brennan in his majority opinion.

    Last word?
    If not, by all means, carry on with the need to be right...

    Or you could reread what I wrote, Post #16 (Trump Campaign Sues New York Times Over 2019 Opinion Article) and agree to disagree, TELL me what I've got wrong, or whatever it is you think that you do best.

    Keep trying. One of these days you'll figure out how this thing called discussion works.
    You keep talking about my postings in this thread. Why are you deflecting rather than address the post you're quoting? I have addressed your posts. I addressed them right there, in what you quoted. It's not my fault you don't like the question or my opinion.

    I haven't called you juvenile. I haven't called you any names. You, on the other hand, jumped right in with your second post of the thread, post #9:

    Yes and no, but it's mostly based on reading the above inane ignorance pouring forth from the anti-Trumpers on this particular thread.

    You really need to be more self-aware.

    The suit is useless and it will be thrown out of court because the defendant can prove what he said was true. Trump did try to remove Russian sanctions in his first days in office. That's a known fact.

    That seems to be how many around here operate by slinging personal insults.

    The Trump campaign that filed the lawsuit appears to have a really good case as the story NYT published was completely false. This story isn't recent but all this time the NYT never retracted it. The lawyers on behalf of the campaign said they are asking for damages in the millions but will not be disclosed until trial. Tonight during Trump's news conference he was asked about it and eluded this is one of others to come. I say Bravo! If it takes taking them to court over reporting lies maybe if it costs them enough millions, they will think twice before doing it again.

    It remains to be seen if the suit is useless.

    The salty essayist claimed the campaign made a deal with Russian officials to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016.
    This can easily be disproved; see Mueller report.
    The Op-Ed piece claimed the campaign had an “overarching deal” with “Vladimir Putin's oligarchy” to defeat the Democratic candidate.
    This too can easily be disproved; see Mueller report.

    Here is the meat of the Trump campaign lawsuit:

    The lawsuit said Times reporters had confirmed the falsity of the statements, but the newspaper published them anyway because of its “extreme bias against and animosity toward the Campaign, and The Times' exuberance to improperly influence the presidential election in November 2020."

    That "This story isn't recent" is the first clue it's a con. That we are close to selecting a Democratic nominee is the second clue.

    It's a con.

    As you probably know by now, I don't suffer fools, a fool who called me dishonest and then turns around and claims that they did not lob any personal attacks. Irony.

    Getting back to the topic of the thread, (not me), I just posted what you said. The Times is getting sued because they knew the essayist was full of **** but published his crap anyway.
