Funniest/Most Insightful Comments Of The Week At Techdirt

https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20190804/10275442714/funniest-most-insightful-comments-week-techdirt.shtmlThis week, our first place winner on the insightful side is TKnarr responding to the idea that the dismissal of the Covington teen’s lawsuit against the Washington Post was a premature decision: The evidence was adduced in the Post article itself. Phillips stated what he felt at that time, and it’s not within the court’s purview to say he didn’t really feel that way. Whether his feelings were reasonable might be something the court could rule on, but for defamation that’s irrelevant. If your feeling is completely irrational and unreasonable you’re still entitled to say you felt that way and your statement of how you felt can’t be defamatory to the other party. Note that saying how you felt is something different from falsely saying the other party did some specific thing to make you feel that way, but Sandmann couldn’t point to anything Phillips said he did that he didn’t clearly do. In second place, it’s Thad with a further response to the same question, and specifically the point that a dismissal means there’s no evidence to review: Or no accusation of anything illegal.
