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.
Lou Dobbs, friend of the Latinos
Rick Ungar has the scoop:
As Dobbs contemplates a third party run for a New Jersey U.S. Senate seat in 2012 against the Senate’s only Hispanic member, Robert Menendez, it suddenly occurs that the people who have been on the business end of his hate talk for all these years turn out to be pretty important when it comes to elections.
Fortunately for Lou, he’s just been kidding all along. He never actually meant any of it.
Sitting for an interview with Maria Celeste on Spanish-speaking television network, Telemundo, Dobbs spoke directly to his ‘peeps’ –
Whatever you have thought of me in the past, I can tell you right now that I am one of your greatest friends and I mean for us to work together.
It gets better.
Dobbs, who has made billions of pesos and built his career vilifying anyone who dared suggest an amnesty for immigrants in the country illegally, now says, “we need the ability to legalize illegal immigrants under certain conditions.”
Again, I couldn’t make this up. I’m not that clever.
It turns out that Dobbs doesn’t just hate Latinos because they have the gall to try and care for their families doing jobs that Americans won’t touch with a ten-foot pole. Now we know that ‘Politician Lou’ believes that Hispanics are among the stupidest people on the planet because who else but an idiot could possibly buy such a mouthful of absolute crap?
