In a decision with potentially large ramifications, New York Federal Judge LaShann DeArcy Hall won't dismiss a libel suit against "Shitty Media Men" creator Moira Donegan.
Explaining, the judge says it is possible that Donegan created the entry herself. The judge believes that Elliott should be able to explore whether the entry was fabricated. Accordingly, discovery proceeds, which will now put pressure on Google to respond to broad subpoena demands. The next motion stage could feature a high-stakes one about the reaches of CDA 230.
racially motivated according to whom?
OK, so someone please tell me what evidence Rod Dreher, or Drudge, is offering that this was a racially motivated beating, in the incident he refers to. Rod takes it as an article of faith that black kids beating up a white kid can only be a matter of racial violence. But why? I can think of any number of other reasons why kids would be fighting each other. Also, kids whoop and holler and cheer for a fight no matter who or why. And what would Rod say if several white kids beating up a black kid was taken, with no other evidence whatsoever, as a race crime? I don’t get it.
Also, let me just say to Rod– I grew up in a designated urban, high-black population public school district, and I can assure you, white people fought back, just like they fought back against other white people, against Hispanic people, just like black people fought back against each other…. It’s an odd comment.
