I got turned away at the door. They don`t want any media coverage.
Say what? The people we hope will be defending the media against encroachments on freedom of the press want to hold their meeting behind closed doors?
We should be very concerned that people that tone deaf are the same people we might need to hire to defend us one day. With friends like these…
I agree with her:
Today I hoped to hear Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin`s keynote speech on libel and various panels on libel chill, and what the conference bills as “The New Fair Comment Defense” in the Supreme’s Rafe Mair v. Kari Simpson case. While Ezra thinks the case expands fair comment, I am among the doubters who thinks it merely signals that the most unreasonable hallmarks of hate (see sec. f.iii) can be used against conservative Christians and that’s fair comment, but try it against any other group and the fair comment options suddenly shrink dramatically.
