The press gets a VERY WIDE BERTH when it comes to defamation - it is the law.
I’ve been saying, ON THIS SITE, that their free ride needs to end, based on their recent behavior (particularly in regard to Trump, but not only Trump - think Dan Rather) - and then I get blasted for wanting to gut the First Amendment.
Well the Founders assumed a reasonably unbiased, or at least balanced, media would always be the case in this country. It is not. It is not even close. The media is now an arm of the Democrat Party - they are a political entity defaming people on our side, and then hiding under the cloak of the First Amendment.
Don’t get me wrong, keep the First Amendment, but allow people like Trump, or those who lost thousands yesterday in their 401k’s, to SUE the media, under the SAME RULES that apply to everyone else.

Maybe massive/large Class action suits documenting harm like to our 401K’s, IRA, Sep IRAs, Keogh plans.
