    "NEW YORK — A civil rights activist is suing Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, claiming she defamed him while discussing a lawsuit against the Black Lives Matter movement that was later dismissed.

    The lawsuit states that DeRay McKesson was falsely arrested in 2016 while attending a protest in Baton Rouge, La., in which a police officer was struck in the face with a rock and seriously injured.....

    .....“We informed Mr. McKesson’s counsel that our commentary was fully protected under the First Amendment and the privilege for reports of judicial proceedings. We will defend this case vigorously,” the statement said
    ."

    While I definitely am no fan of fox news, so long as the report is true, it it protected under the constitution.

    I doubt Judge Pirro is too concerned.

    But the rights enshrined in the First Amendment are not ‘absolute’ or ‘unlimited’ – neither defamation nor libel are entitled to Constitutional protections.

    Pirro needs to act her age. She carries herself like a young tramp.

    You edited your post as I was posting. I most certainly do not act the tramp. Sheesh. I should delete it. But, since I am just posting as a poster, I will leave it. Not very kind of you. MarcATL

    And after the attorneys for the blm moron have sucked him dry, and sucked his friends dry, and sucked the various silly people who are foolish enough to donate to the clown, they will lose the trial (if it even gets to a Court room) and Judge Piro will get a nice Judgement against the blm clown and his friends.

    No doubt. If this suit actually starts, it will be interesting to see what kind of tact DeRay McKesson's attorneys use.
