The New York Times has asked a judge to toss out a defamation lawsuit former Alaska governor Sarah Palin filed against it.

The newspaper said in court papers late Friday that its prompt and full correction of an editorial that referenced Palin’s political action committee nullifies her claims.

Palin sued the Times in Manhattan federal court last month, saying the newspaper had accused her of inciting the mass shooting that severely wounded then-Arizona U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords. She sought unspecified damages. …

Anybody know how “prompt” a correction it was?

Was it after she filed a lawsuit?

This slur came YEARS after that other shooting, the Slimes was doing character assassination and they knew it.

Considering that the editors and ownership of the NYT, like everyone else, knew years ago what led the shooter to his actions, it could be nothing other than malicious intent to harm behind their printing the story.

You can retract your words but the damage was done. If you want to avoid future lawsuits, you watch your words.

If I flipped off a police officer and later said to the judge that, “I didn’t mean it,” the damage was done. I would get the punishment.

I read their correction at that time, and it definitely did not specifically state that there was NO LINK BETWEEN PALIN AND THE SHOOTING OF GIFFORDS. It was a half-assed correction, made only AFTER there was talk of a lawsuit. But, given the liberal judges sitting in all most every court, they will probably toss the suit.

If I weren’t currently married I could find a woman 20+ years my junior faster than it takes me to write this. And I’m 57 and disabled.

She is bringing an appropriate and legal lawsuit.

It should stand.
