“No effort was made by FreeRepublic to contact anyone at the DNC for comment or to check the accuracy of these statements before they were published”
That’s probably because the DNC are a bunch of thieving, lying sumbitches.
Maybe because we are not publishers?
The DNC orders you to cease and desist exercising your constitutional right of freedom of free speech and telling of the truth.
I doubt most people try to contact sources before repeating what they heard on the radio or in their newspaper.
there is no one at the DNC to check for accuracy of any kind, it’s not important to them, or at least it’s only important if it is a direct hit at them
This is a DISCUSSION FORUM, not a Breaking news site...
Let me know when he threatens KOS or ALternet for posting flase info and outright LIES, K?
You really gotta laugh at them. The filth and vitrol on KOS and DU meet the grade for “hate crime” status. And if anyone on the right criticizes their speech, it’s abject hysteria for the response.
What a bunch of babies. Litigate your candidates into office and your enemies into silence.
BTW, under their standard Michael Moore ought to be serving 5 years in PMITA federal prision.
Coming in contact with the dnc will get you a bad case of cooties.
Thats probably because the DNC are a bunch of thieving, lying sumbitches.
Do they expect us to call the DNC and ask if they're really a bunch of thieving, lying sumbitches? The DNC's getting a little heavy handed here...
FR isn't a news outlet, it's a news discussion forum composed of thousands of members. Neither "FR" or it's individual members are legally obligated to confirm the veracity of facts - though morally and intellectually, all members really ought to make a point of double checking facts and most of the FReepers I know DO. Also, to repeat what I said before, discussing what a media personality said on the airwaves does not constitute libel.
The bottom line is the DNC doesn't have a legal case for libel against FR or any of it's members.
Even SETI wouldn't waste their time trying to make contact there.
