    Legal Insurrection ^ | 8-18-2017 | William A. Jacobson
    As detailed extensively in prior posts, Sarah Palin has sued the NY Times for defamation based on an Editorial regarding the 2011 shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. Recent developments have revealed that James Bennet, Editorial Page Editor, was the primary author of the Editorial, working off a draft prepared by a news staffer.

    Editorial page editor James Bennet testified on Wednesday as the judge weighs the newspaper's motion to dismiss. New York Times editorial page editor James Bennet testified Wednesday in an open hearing that he did not mean to imply a "causal link" between a political action committee tied to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and a 2011 attack on a then-congresswoman and others. Palin, who served as John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential election, sued the Times on June 27 over a June 14 editorial that, before it was corrected, said that "the link to political incitement was clear"...

    Video at link. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) criticized a CBS News report revealing Iceland's practice of aborting babies suspected to have Down Syndrome. Palin, whose son Trig was born with Down Syndrome in 2008, said the practice is abhorrent. "To try to snuff out a life, in the name of building a perfect race... hearkens back to Nazi Germany," she said.

    The headline in the New York Times read: New York Times Editorial Writer Must Testify in Sarah Palin Lawsuit What did I tell you? "She has a case and she and her lawyers can have a field day in discovery and deposition." I'm not alone is recognizing how devastating her lawsuit is. She has good lawyers (the team that destroyed Gawker Media), a good case, and all the time in the world. Lawyer John Hinderacker at Power Line is boasting about his prescience in the case. He knows the law. I know editorial writing. Did it for 27 years. The...

    I was channel surfing through the cable news world the other day and I discovered the perfectly-coiffed-hair crowd is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. The anchors and anchorettes on CNN and MSNBC are suffering outright panic attacks – after President Trump delivered that verbal gut punch to the North Koreans. MSNBC's Brian Williams defended the fear mongering - explaining to the nation that journalists had some sort of moral obligation to put the fear of God in the Heartland. "Our job tonight is to actually scare people to death," he said on national television. One of the...

    Let’s just step back and admire this situation for a moment. One or more editorial writers at the NY Times, the folks who speak with the paper’s voice of authority on every subject you can imagine, will plead with a judge to believe they did not know the basic facts of a story they were writing about, including facts reported in their own paper! The Times’ defense is: We so dumb. I find this indescribably delicious, especially given that it was Paul Krugman who used his perch at the NY Times to lead this false charge against Palin back in...

    A Manhattan federal court judge will decide by the end of this month whether to dismiss a defamation lawsuit Sarah Palin filed against the New York Times for accusing the former Alaska governor of inciting gun violence. In the meantime, Judge Jed Rakoff suspended discovery, blocking Palin’s lawyers from grilling two dozen Times reporters to prove the Gray Lady is biased against her. On June 14, the Times published a since-corrected editorial tying one of Palin’s political-action committee ads to a 2011 mass shooting that severely wounded Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords and killed six people.

    A "progressive parent" friend of mine was recently expressing enthusiasm over the fact that his children had taken to reading Young Adult dystopian novels. They were dying to see the new feature film adaptation of the book The Giver (see Sarah Palin's review, here), after having ploughed through the quartet of bestselling books by Lois Lowry. They had absorbed the blockbuster film adaptations of Divergent and The Hunger Games and had hungrily consumed the associated merchandise . They'd also made hundreds of new friends from all over the world who "shared" the same passion for dystopian teen icons Katniss, Tris...

    Journalists and politicians venerating John McCain's civility and decency have a short memory. Nothing rehabilitates a politician’s tarnished image quite like death. It happened to Nixon. It happened to Reagan. It will probably happen to Bush. And right now, it’s happening to John McCain. McCain is still alive, but a week ago he was diagnosed with a particularly aggressive form of brain cancer, requiring surgery to have a tumor removed. The news prompted an outpouring of grief and well-wishing from Democrats, Republicans, liberals, and conservatives aike, as well as a deluge of hagiographical pieces valorizing McCain as an American hero...

    Alaskans - are you upset that your Republican senator pulled the rug out from under the repeal of ObamaCare? There's something you can do about it. A certain popular ex-governor is available and what she might lack in skills as an individual candidate, she certain has an eye for representing Alaskans first and foremost rather than the DC elites.

    [snip] Sarah Palin has plans to subpoena almost two dozen staff from the New York Times as part of her defamation lawsuit against the outlet, according to court documents released Wednesday. The editorial article, published by the Times on June 14, tied Palin's political action committee ads in 2011 to the mass shooting that killed six people and wounded former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D., Ariz.).

    A nightmare is unfolding for the New York Times that could well be devastating for the collapsing credibility and mindshare of the entire progressive media. In a court filing by defense counsel for the New York Times, the scope of the discovery being sought by Palin's legal team was revealed. If the court allows, the story that it could tell might well be all too revealing. Kaja Whitehouse of the New York Post spotted the public disclosure. In a motion arguing that the case be dismissed, lawyers for the New York Times complained that Palin's legal team has served notice...

    President Donald Trump may not be in the White House had former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin not blazed the trail for him. This week, Bernie Quigley observed that Palin “was prelude and harbinger” to Trump’s arrival. He wrote in The Hill that he was reading William Strauss and Neil Howe’s The Fourth Turning when Palin appeared on the national stage. And he said then that “it was possible to see the rise of new political archetypes and forms and they are now upon us.” “It was not President Donald Trump that brought the age, although he turned the key....

    The New York Times has asked a judge to toss out a defamation lawsuit former Alaska governor Sarah Palin filed against it. The newspaper said in court papers late Friday that its prompt and full correction of an editorial that referenced Palin’s political action committee nullifies her claims. Palin sued the Times in Manhattan federal court last month, saying the newspaper had accused her of inciting the mass shooting that severely wounded then-Arizona U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords. She sought unspecified damages. …

    So, how can accusing a person of having a “clear” and “direct” causal connection to six murders, without a shred of evidence, possibly be an “honest mistake”? Isn’t it a textbook case of reckless disregard? Ms. Palin can make a strong argument that the Times editorialists knew that their smear was a lie, based on reporting done by the Times itself. (The editorialists’ defense likely will have to be that they don’t read their own newspaper.) But at a minimum, it seems that the Times editorial was published with reckless disregard for whether it was true or not. It was...

    Sarah Palin’s defamation lawsuit against The New York Times should be tossed because the paper made “an honest mistake” when it said she incited a 2011 shooting that severely wounded Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords and killed six people, a lawyer for the Gray Lady said on Friday. “There was an honest mistake in posting the editorial,” lawyer David Schultz told Manhattan federal Judge Jed Rakoff.

    Full title: Gregg Jarrett: Sarah Palin vs. the New York Times -- Five reasons why ex-governor might just win her caseSarah Palin is suing the New York Times, the once-storied newspaper that still brags it publishes “all the news that’s fit to print.” It does not. Palin correctly accuses the Times of defamation by blaming her in an editorial for the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of six people. Specifically, editorialists claimed Palin’s political action committee incited the violence. The Times asserted the cause or link was “clear” and “direct.” Such a link has never been established,...
