CSGV campaigns to have Emily Miller fired

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) yesterday launched an effort on its website and via Facebook to have Emily Miller, chief investigative reporter for WTTG, the Washington, D.C. Fox News affiliate, fired from her job for appearing at a gun rights rally several days ago in Virginia.

CSGV said today on its Facebook page that more than 3,000 people have signed an on-line petition demanding that WTTG general manager Patrick Paolini pull the plug on Miller, who authored “Emily Gets Her Gun…But Obama Wants to Take Yours.” The book was a blistering account of Miller’s efforts to get a permit to legally keep a handgun in her home in the District of Columbia.

Miller has twice been awarded by the Second Amendment Foundation for telling her saga, first as an editorial columnist for the Washington Times and then for her book. She also received the Clark Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Journalism, and has gone after parking problems and other stories unrelated to firearms rights since moving to WTTG.

I don't know what the civil law is there, but if this were in Texas and if she had a contract with Fox, I'd be filing a suit for tortuous interference with contractual relationship. Get an injunction, attorney fees and perhaps other remedies.

How? They are using free speech. I don't agree with it, but thats kind of the point of the Big 2A, to protect the rights of others to say what we don't like and admit how stupid they are. ;-)

Tortious interference is attempting to interfere in the contractual relationship existing between two other parties.

Sure, they have free speech, but that neither justifies falsely yelling fire in a movie theater nor interfering in someone's contract.

Which they are doing neither. Good luck with making that claim in court.
