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.
Liberals have long thought Ronald Reagan and the GOP of that era as made up of nothing but selfish jerks. I don’t think that ever was the case- Reagan in many ways offered a conservative version of the common good; that Republicans were more than just people serving interests, but working together as part of a greater whole.
That drive and belief of being your brother’s keeper seems to be absent from today’s GOP.
