New York Times "Actual Malice"

That's what the swiftnuts have got themselves into as this TNR piece illuminates. I got an A in this media law course for which this law stemming from NY Times v. Sullivan is a fulcrum point for journalists' understanding of the coverage of public figures. The ads against Kerry and the book by O'Neill are libelous. They should be prosecuted for falsehoods, actual malice, and knowingly defamatory publication of lies against a public figure running for president. Bring it on.
