LIBEL SUITS AGAINST BLOGS HAVE BEEN IFFY â€” I wrote an article on that a couple of years ago â€” but Mickey Kausâ€™s discussion for some reason made me think of this New Yorker cartoon. Remember, just because â€œactual maliceâ€ is a tough standard to meet doesnâ€™t mean you arenâ€™t in big trouble if someone meets it. And Section 230 protects publishers, but the original source isnâ€™t off the hook.
Solution: Do as Instapundit does and join the Media Bloggers Association. It’s a bargain! If you have anything worth protected and blog about anything besides kittens, why wouldn’t you?
UPDATE: Yeah, well.
