22 Oct 2009 Rush Should Sue
Bob Parks believes Rush should sue.
I believe he should also, although I am agnostic on which individuals and/or businesses have met the legal definition of libel in this instance. (For one thing, I haven’t seen everyone’s comments in context.)
Aside from whatever satisfaction Rush might get from the experience (assuming that would outweigh the hassle factor), I think Rush would be doing a significant public service inasmuch as the news media is way, way too casual about throwing around false information. Yes, about conservatives, but generally as well. A few lawsuits might remind some reporters and editors that if they don’t care about accuracy out of pride in a job well done, they might care about it to save their own bank balances.
