LIBEL SUITS AGAINST BLOGS HAVE BEEN IFFY — I wrote an article on that a couple of years ago — but Mickey Kaus’s discussion for some reason made me think of this New Yorker cartoon. Remember, just because “actual malice” is a tough standard to meet doesn’t mean you aren’t in big trouble if someone meets it. And Section 230 protects publishers, but the original source isn’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.
