Somewhere in these posts and threads there is brief discussion regarding illegitimate news like Alex Jones and others being rightfully sued for defamation.
I stated that a lawsuit could break you and free speach and if the person thought what they were saying or believed what they were reporting....
But others here were indicating that those reporting news or challenging people should be sued. Oh I remember somebody commented on Guilliani for defaming those ballot counters and the accusations that the election was stolen. Oh yes and they were happy Gateway pundit was getting sued and having to file for bankruptcy.

Well here you go folks. Hunter Biden is suing Fox News.
It will get so bad that people won't want to talk or report on what they think is real.

You can’t make this stuff up. Hunter Biden is suing Fox News for airing photos of him with prostitutes while he was on crack.

Does he realize how ridiculous that sounds to your average American or???

No surprise when a drug addled brain meets a greedy lawyer.

Libel/defamation lawsuits can be tricky because even if you win you still need to prove actual damages in most cases. That's why they are not that common. Assuming everything Fox has reported is truthful it's a slam dunk for them.

But still a burden to have to go to court to defend oneself. It would/could be financially devastating for a smaller organization.

Absolutely. Guilty, until proven innocent. Been this way for yrs.

It's called "Lawfare"...like warfare. Destroy with court costs.

And in recent years it's being used a lot more by the left side of the political spectrum against the right, while not against the left.

Cases in point - Jan 6th demonstrators vs the antifa riots, many that questioned the 2020 election, and the many court cases going on against President Trump that others were never charged for.

A sad time in history, I prefer not to remember. The day I stopped my involvement in any politics. A day that showed blatantly how corrupt our legal system is. The day that showed the direction of not only this country, but the world, the direction the future holds. And there isn't a damn thing we can do about it. The only recourse we had, was voting, and even that has been taken away by a fraudulent system.
