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.
