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.
Responding to Barrett’s attack on all things related to NRO’s The Corner, and particularly the portion dealing with K-Lo, the mysterious FLG (ordinarily the League’s bête noire) writes:
FLG maintains that nobody likes clowns. Most people in fact think they’re pretty creepy. But everybody assumes everybody else likes clowns. How clowns escaped the fate of mimes, whom everybody except the French hate, FLG does not know….Well, FLG thinks it’s time for this to end. It’s time to stand up and say, “Clowns are creepy and K-Lo is an idiot! We will suffer them no longer! Off to France, where they will be imprisoned in a mime Bastille!”
