Atwood Could Have Sued Fox News North, Didn't

From her Year of the Flood blog:

...although I had grounds for a lawsuit or two of my own, I decided not to go down that road at present — who can afford the time?


After consulting with the GP, I decided to give the poor SUN a chance – after all, it would be mean of me and a seasonal vegetable to crush such a weak media conglomerate, with a mere 10.5 million (what are they? subscribers?) and a bazillion dollars. They offered me 600 words.

"I decided not to go down that road at present" means she still might. Margaret, darling, sue them and I'll set up a tip jar. I can throw in a $5 to start with. Maybe more later, depending on the lotto.

Clearly lawsuits are from the South Left are the new "American style" politics.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Too bad you wasted yours.

ridenrain - We may not know which of the egg or the checken came first, but in the case of defamation we know what comes first.

ridofbrain, I guess I have to spell it out since a lobotomy is a prerequisite for being a Harperbot. What if I wrote a newspaper article stating falsely that you were a Nazi collaborator? Free speech ends where slander begins – always has. And Ezra deserves as many nice, fat lawsuits against him as possible for being so stupid.
