    Lawsuit had nothing to do with that.

    What was your point?

    Of course not. No law against standing there either. Yet the MSM called him a racist for surrounding and “attacking” the poor Native American. Massive lie by the way repeated even after the truth came out. That’s what the law suit was about. A professional news organization knowingly lying about someone character and making **** up with the intent to destroy his reputation.

    unless the mega hat wearer got a all Trump jury, he would never win

    both sides were wrong in this, the real bad guys were the ones that were earlier harassing the teens

    the MAGA hat has become a racist symbol, sadly, so wearing one makes some think they are racist, when not all that wear the hat are

    Like I give a **** that you weren't replying to me.

    You made a pointless post and i called you out on it. Now you're confirming that there was absolutely no point at all to your post. Thanks, that's exactly what i wanted you to do.

    I cared to point out how absurd your post was.

    That you were not initially responding to me is what I clearly didn't care about....hence my quoting you in the first place. I didn't care that you weren't responding to me, I quoted you anyway.

    Seriously, how on earth did you not understand that?

    Its not a disagreement. You're not making any sense. Explain specifically how showing that a news organization purposely lied about the events that took place, is ruining their reputation? They're ruining their own reputation by lying. I truly don't understand what you're saying and neither do others in this thread. You're just blathering...

    Facts? What facts? Do you really think you could quantify human feelings in a way that could ever be viewed as a fact? :roflol:

    I saw the dismissal, and the first thing that leapt out was the number of areas where the Judge asserted unwritten law, assumed facts not presented, and essentially asserted a power to protect an institution from a legitimate legal complaint.

    I would point out that there are a number of super cool things in his ruling that, if they were used to characterize the judge, I doubt the judge would like very much.

    Specifically, he found that demonstrable acts weren't acts they were matters of opinion, subjective, were able to be restated because of their source having been relayed to the reporters, and finally that WAPO wasn't actually "targeting" sandman even though the WAPO ran story after story plastering the teens image on every story.

    Can you imagine if a story in the WAPO were then written about the judge (Bertelsman)?

    This one will get reinstated on appeal, and one hopes that Bertelsman gets disbarred for his ridiculous opinion.
