SUING THE NEW YORK TIMES
for libel & journalistic fraud

*     *     *

“‘The First Amendment goes beyond protection of the press..’…‘it is the right of the [public], not the right of the [media], which is paramount,’...for ‘without the information provided by the press most of us and many of our representatives would be unable to vote intelligently or to register opinions on the administration of government generally,’…”


Cohen v. Cowles Media Co., 501 U.S. 663, 678 (1991), Justice Souter, writing in dissent with Justices Marshall, Blackmun, and O’Connor, citing cases culminating in New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254, 278-279 (1964), cited in “Journalistic Malpractice: Suing Jayson Blair and the New York Times for Fraud and Negligence”, 14 Fordham Intellectual Property, Media & Entertainment Law Journal 1, footnotes 62 and 156 (2003).
