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.
The GOP to Women: We Love You, Really
A few old white guy members of the Michigan Republican party decided that they could show empathy to women voters by pretending to read a few glossy fashion magazines:
Do these guys get how condescending they look? Do they grasp how they trivialize women’s issues by using these magazines as props to win over female voters? Rhetorical questions, I know. These dudes are completely clueless. But you have to love the responses. This stunt was a major fail. Will the Republican Party ever learn that the way to win women voters is to treat them as competent, intelligent human beings? I doubt it.
