Is there still a First Amendment?

Posted By on Fri, Oct 27, 2006 at 7:35 PM

A Saline Circuit Court may shortly give us an indication.

(The short form: A lawsuit has been filed to shut down a blog doing the outrageous act of republishing news articles that might shed a negative light on a sheriff's candidate.)

Please understand. We're not passing on the veracity of this peeing match. But if you've been defamed, sue for defamation. Attempting to shut down a publication in election season is another matter. And, yes, websites are publications. Welcome to the 21st digital century.
