Skeptic Non-Music- NYTimes Blacklists Writers (49) RE: Non-Music- NYTimes Blacklists Writers 29 Sep 01


ttoadfrog,

Thanks. I couldn't remember what they were called. I think they are still allowed here in Florida. It seems to me at a few years ago some of the activists in the State filed charges of frivolous suit with the State Bar Association. If upheld, the charge can result in disbarment but I don't think we've got an anti-SLAPP law yet. We're still working on how to count ballots and deal with a just announced 7% budget shortfall (which I hope doesn't mess up any of the funding for folk festivals).

Kat,

I hope so too. My question wasn't whether the source the Union got it from was reliable but whether the source was him/herself set up to pass a fake memo? If it was a plant, the best that could happen is the loss of the election. Worst case is a nasty law suit from the NYT that could hurt or cripple the Union.

Not that the NYT would ever do anything as cynical or underhanded as setting up a Union that supported a lawsuit they lost, of course. I blame my cynicism on Nixon, Capt. Kangaroo and, of course, troll.

Regards

John
