Palin's libel lawsuit against NYT may live again

The New York Times gleefully libeled Republican Sarah Palin on June 14, 2017, by stating in an editorial that she inspired a shooting in Arizona six years earlier.

Its own news staff had discredited that years earlier. Thus, not only was the editorial Hate Speech but Fake News as well.

She sued.

Federal Judge Jed Rakoff, a Clinton appointee, dismissed the lawsuit in April.

"What we have here is an editorial, written and rewritten rapidly in order to voice an opinion on an immediate event of importance, in which are included a few factual inaccuracies somewhat pertaining to Mrs. Palin that are very rapidly corrected. Negligence this may be; but defamation of a public figure it plainly is not," the judge wrote.

A few factual inaccuracies somewhat pertaining to Mrs. Palin?

Democrats look out for their own.

But Palin appealed and now may yet get her day in court.

"A federal appeals panel seems poised to reinstate a defamation lawsuit Sarah Palin brought against The New York Times. A three-judge panel found it unusual that a judge tossed the lawsuit last year after hearing testimony from a single witness. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel heard oral arguments Friday. It didn’t immediately rule," the Associated Press reported.

The editorial tried to take the sting off Democrats after one of their "resisters" shot and nearly killed Republican Congressman Steve Scalise. The Democratic gunman tried to kill a dozen Republican congressmen in a ball yard.

The New York Times brought up that canard about Palin.

She deserves compensation.

    1. I'd argue that PDS is far worse.

      McCain/Palin lost to Obama/Biden, yet they still kept hard after her.

    2. Of course they did.

      Mackie was never a threat.

      Palin is always a threat.


      Politician = Grafter

      MAGA = American, aka, Of the People, By the People, For the People.

      All MAGA is Local.

      All Grafter is wherever, whenever, however and benefits from being as disconnected from local as can be.

      Thus, Mackie's choice of Palin was never to add to his non attempt at election to Presidency, but, rather, to subvert the budding MAGA Spirit.

      This was obvious even at the time.

      MAGA Spirit has been building for decades.

      The catalyst of the obamanation + Our MAGA President heeding the call = Winning!!!!!

      Fortuitously, the democrat whiners still retain both the freedom and the credit card capability to guzzle the wines of their choosings and drown themselves in it.

      Bottoms Up, democrats and rinos, in every sense of the phrase.

    3. Just another case of the left attempting to destroy the life of anyone with whom they disagree.

  2. “Federal Judge Jed Rakoff, a Clinton appointee, dismissed the lawsuit in April.”

    Just as an aside, “rack off” is how the Aussies tell someone to go pound sand.
