    I really think that Trump should not the President. Because he hates Muslims and we know, its a person that are wrong, not a whole religion. People already living there won‘t be able to celebrate various Americans events like

    Fabricating information for which there are no facts in order to show in false light or to defame is illegal. On that note, maybe we should bring back perjury judgments. There used to be fact-checkers. Now morons believe everything on Wikipedia is true (it is not), and blogs are factual. Rashomon, or what ever you want to call it; when I hear newscasters say thing like "this is the worst massacre in history" (re: the Orlando slayings), I know two things; the newscaster would spread any lie, and he/she is not smart enough to check the facts she reads on the air. Just make sure YOU know: about the Whitewater, Susan McAuliffe, Vince Foster, Hilary‘s Commodies trades, her pact with India about out sourcing U.S. Jobs, her Canadian money laundering, how a feminist can stand by her man when he is Bill Clinton, what Hilary was doing when servicemen were slaughtered in Benghazi and why, of all the capable women in the U.S., she chose a man as a running mate . . .

    The media have nothing to fear from Trump. It‘s the First Amendment-squeezing Stalinists on the left they need to worry about.

    As a non-US citizen I can‘t comment too extensively on your law, but it sounds like "the media is mean to me, you lot wait until I‘m in charge and I‘ll use my influence to benefit myself". It‘s not the kind of thing that would encourage me to vote for someone, especially someone who has historically had such an interest in protecting his personal interests at the expense of others.

    It is illegal and unethical what the news media do at best. So I certainly hope someone with decency will go after you.

    Chris, I asked a question...

  • prosenfelt

    Trump scotus justices could significantly change libel law.

  • Spiritus Mundi

    Am trusting the *sarcasm font* came through on that one.

  • Spiritus Mundi

    He‘s got my vote.

  • Chris

    So, HBetke, are you saying that the quotes attributed to Trump in this article are falsehoods? That he never said them? Because if that isn‘t the case, then your statement is libelous.
