I wonder if that counts as libel?

What the ever-loving fark?

This is low, even for Brian Kilmeade

Fox News should be classified as a terrorist organization.

probably not the best idea to slander/libel a judge.

It will, but ain't nuthin gonna happen.
All they've got now is straight out lying and seeing if the cult will believe it.
They will. They always do.

That is a slander lawsuit right there.

Also Ghislaine Maxwell has nice tits.

What's with the Oreos?

Can we see the pic of the magistrate?  Not that there's any question whatsoever about the "authenticity" of this nonsense.

They will still classify the lawsuit as "being silenced" or other fake accusations of persecution they claim.

This is decompensating insanity.

Fox thinks their world is collapsing and they don't  know how to deal.
 
2022-08-12 8:21:20 AM  
Fact while this image might have been altered, there is zero evidence that there isn't a photo somewhere showing just this. It is incumbent on the judge to prove he wasn't on Epstein's jet.
 
2022-08-12 8:21:22 AM  
I really hope there are follow ups to this...

It's a comedy show! Judge said no reasonable person would take it seriously. ...still not sure why it was ever assumed the show was watched by reasonable viewers, which seems important.

Snatch Bandergrip: How is this legal?


Oh my sweet summer child.

Hundreds of people stormed the Capitol and tried to overthrow the Government, sent there on video by TFG, and most got slaps on the wrist, if that, and the guy that sent them there was never punished for it. Many GQP Reps and Senators even encouraged them (Hi Josh Hawley) and they were also never punished. Many will win in landslides in the midterms since they are from deep red districts or states. You think someone is gonna get punished for a fake pic when they didn't even get punished for trying to overthrow the government?

Hopefully in the future this "media war of 2022" will be injected in people's brain during government-mandated online history classes.
(Maybe flying cars will be available, too)

https://www.mtsu.edu/first-amendment/article/1010/public-figures-and-officials

tl/dr:  Public figures and officials must show actual malice as opposed to private citizens.  This is how Larry Flint beat Jerry Falwell's case against him for that parody ad.  It was done in a humorous manner and no person would take it seriously.  this example was not in the article, but it should be something most farkers will know about.

This photo, however, is straight up slander, which is NOT protected under the First Amendment.  This judge should own Fox News once this is settled.

Yup, the good old, I didn't do nothing but if I accuse you of it you can't prove a negative.

And, of course, the judge who signed off on the warrant, Bruce Reinhart, is being doxxed and facing threats of violence:

Tell us you don't understand our justice system without telling us, also tell us you're an authoritarian that thinks everyone is guilty till proven innocent.

And you vote too, right... no wonder this country is farked.
 
2022-08-12 8:26:37 AM  

potierrh: I wonder if that counts as libel?


Probably not.

Did it materially harm the judge? It's not enough that some people believed it and shunned him; did it cause him economic harm?

Does the average person think it was true? Fox would point to all of the people on social media who immediately flagged it as a bad photoshop.

Was it a false statement and did Fox know it was false before they made it? Yes, but moot because of the previous point.

Was it said with malice? I don't think so. It went by so quick that it was obviously just a stupid joke.

Conspiracy theorists are so lazy.  Every "conspiracy" is just a series of touchstones thrown at the wall.  Epstein now joins the deep state, Bigfoot, and the New World Order.  You can throw Epstein into any conspiracy and it will satisfy someone that this is a legitimate conspiracy.

This was already covered.  When Milhouse says:

He gets a nod, because Bart wanted RAND in the conspiracy.

RAND doesn't get drawn into conspiracies much these days.  With the end of the Cold War, they kind of fell off the radar.

If that federal judge ordered Kilmeade into his court this afternoon for a hearing on contempt charges he'd be well within the bounds of the law in doing so.

Early Times and Oreos might have a case but red Solo cups have no reputation to defend.

Wow. Just wow, to all of it. That photoshop is laughable, and Kilmeade should be fired.

What are odds on Faux actually issuing a retraction?

Fox News:  We're "news entertainment."  If our viewers go out and do bad shiat, it's on them.  We're entertainment.

White Oreos and Early Times? Early Times is best paired with original Oreos.

If they really want to smear this judge, they should announce that he was nominated to the judiciary by known Epstein associate Donald Trump.  This keeps them clear of slander/libel as it's 100% factual.
 
2022-08-12 8:30:26 AM  
I really can't understand it. Why do conservatives think it's ok for Trump to be acquaintances with Epstein but everyone else who ever met the man is a pedo?  Is it as simple as they don't care how many children Trump rapes so it's only a sin when others do it?
 
2022-08-12 8:30:31 AM  
"He likes Oreos and whiskey."

That's his angle?  Oreos and (good) whisky are delicious!  Maybe not at the same time, but I won't stand in judgement of the man for it.

Because Trump is their God Emperor.  He's their Messiah.

This is pretty good...I've been a lurker for a while...still not smart enough to farky folks so not sure if you're stupid or brilliant.  I'm an empath and always give the benefit of the doubt.  So for now, I will heartily laugh on the assumption you are a funny person, and I will thank you for the chuckle.  If you actually believe this, please don't tell me...I'd like to freeze our relationship in this positive space.

They know that it is bad, but they don't understand WHY it is bad. They just know that it is bad.

Like them being all proud racists, but they know that heing called racist has negative consequences, so they try to not be labeled as hard as they can.

Labeling democrats as pedophiles is bad for them. Despite how much they want to rape children themselves.
