    Of all the "progressive" dishonesty over the past week, the idea that conservative figures such as Sarah Palin have self-servingly inserted themselves into the debate is the sleaziest. Lefties blamed Palin for the Tucson shootings almost immediately, instantly placing her a defensive position.

    Talk show hosts were also wrongly singled out, including Mark Levin, who has decided to fight back against MSNBC and its smear machine. After a solid week of anti-talker/Palin attacks, lefties then rewrote history to claim they had willingly jumped into the fray for publicity.

    Rather than stand by during the dirty tricks campaign, Levin is going on the offensive. Not only has he threatened to sue the far-left cable network, he's defending Palin as well, offering $100,000 for evidence she's "promoted the murder of anyone".

    I dont think Mark has a case, he has to proove malice, then because hes a public figure he has to proove reckless disregard for the truth.

    I would say only a email or communication from a MSNB or media outlet saying " lets churn the water to make them look bad" would suffice.
    I think its a waste of time to sue, because if and when he looses, it can be assumed the statements were not libelous.


    Since Sullivan, a public official or other person who has voluntarily assumed a position in the public eye must prove that a libelous statement "was made with 'actual malice'—that is, with knowledge that it was false or with reckless disregard to whether it was false or not" (Sullivan). The actual-malice standard does not require any ill will on the part of the defendant. Rather, it merely requires the defendant to be aware that the statement is false or very likely false. Reckless disregard is present if the plaintiff can show that the defendant had "serious doubts as to the truth of [the] publication

    Levin is Sean Hannity's ghost writer and he's desperately trying to get himself some media attention. Sad, really...

    Riddler, you could take what you wrote and reverse it exactly as you stated it, only blaming the Righties as you did the lefties for seeking attention, This Levin and the other talkers try yelling the loudest to keep up the pressure and pretty soon they have their False News Sheeples believing their lies hook line and sinker. Remember a few weeks ago the poll that showed False News watchers were more likely to believe false information from 50% up to 70% more frequently on about 8 subjects. These are your Righties doing what you claim lefties do,
