Appellate Court Rules Media Can Legally Lie. – SierraTimes.Com
This is what happened:
“On February 14, a Florida Appeals court ruled there is absolutely nothing illegal about lying, concealing or distorting information by a major press organization. The court reversed the $425,000 jury verdict in favor of journalist Jane Akre who charged she was pressured by Fox Television management and lawyers to air what she knew and documented to be false information. ”
This is yet another reason why I mistrust all the things on the news right now.
Thanks for this story, Tantek.
I finally watched the whole movie last night.
It’s funny, I can read a book for hours, but it’s really hard for me to sit through a movie.
Anyway, it is so real. It could practically be a home movie of the dorky guys around here. all those actor wanna-bees. It was amazing to see MY NEIGHBORHOOD all over the screen. Holy crap! The dude was even wearing an In’N’Out shirt.
Man…If I’d seen it when i lived in alaska, I wouldn’t have believed any of it. But now that i’m HERE, every line is true. Who could ever believe that people could act like such idiots? You have to see it to believe it.
The whole thing was that the guys just needed to let go of their desperate clench on self-importance.
The guy couldn’t get over his girlfriend, but that wasn’t the main issue. He just had to get over himself. Him and the rest of the guys.
