Process of defamation from Sonoma County Gazette
It is so easy to ruin a person’s reputation and even livelihood now with the social networking sites, webpages, etc. Is it time to crack down on slander, defamation of character, character assassination? Federal authorities investigate and if insufficient evidence is given to prove the allegations, they are brought to court?
The lawyer for the stripper accusing Trump does not like the shoe being on the other foot. Someone criticized him and he implied he had “clients” calling him to ask for representation to file a “me too” case against them. Of course he won’t divulge a client’s name so no proof is needed whatsoever yet the accusations are out there.
The founder of pizza chain is removed from his own company because a private conversation discussing racial issues was made public (he did not at anyone apparently, just used the word in a sentence). He has come back and accused the public relations firm he was talking to of trying to blackmail him for 6 million before they made it public.
It was big news in Chicago that a drugstore manager called police on a woman who became belligerent when he questioned the authenticity of a coupon for free product. There was no video of her rant so the news took HER video to show him on the phone. It was terrifying (tongue in cheek) Oh, she was of a certain ethnic persuasion and was upset that he referred to her as an African American. Is that now politically incorrect?
The drugstore firm is tripping over itself apologizing, probably giving product away and no telling what is happening to the manager? FOR WHAT?
When will this crap be stopped?
