Good for them. Time to expose liars for what they really are.
I doubt the Barry Hussein's minions in the DOJ, will ever file charges against them though. :grumble

Great for them! I hope they have a strong case against them! $12 million will certainly get the attention of the lying, anti-gun propagandists, who spread their filth!

Just saw today her Attorneys filed to dismiss the case. No decision yet and goes on to say if this judge does not dismiss, theres a very slim chance of getting it dismissed in the future and a settlement is almost certain to be offered. GO VCDL!!!

:iagree: And when you hear the real audio with that "interview", it is so blatant she doctored it up. And, I see her having a hard time defending herself when she was the Executive Director. She had all the authority to change it, gonna be hard to defend that one. But, I remember a saying that goes something like this: Dont go the courthouse to seek the truth. AARRGGHHH I hope VCDL hits her where it hurts, right in the wallet.

Nice, she admits there was deception involved and still gets off with no consequences.

Do we really need courts reviewing the editing and content of news about public figures and or events? :roll:

My how the mighty have fallen! "Yahoo News Anchor" Katic Couric. Couldn't have come up with a more apt description (that wouldn't violate forum rules).
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

What if the public figure is the President? Is the press obligated to edit their news in such a way to make him look good, or not look bad? Was it libel for them to edit clips to make Bush look stupid?

There's no doubt that Couric edited the show to make Phil Van Cleave look bad, but does that constitute libel or slander? Phil as the head of VCDL is a public figure. Are news organizations under a legal obligation not to edit their product in such a way as to 'push' for their cause? If NRA TV edits a clip of Shannon Watts to make her look stupid, are they also legally obligated to PROVE that she IS?

Hillary tried to get Citizens United prosecuted for making a movie about her. I'm sure they edited it to make her look bad, but their speech is protected.
