Vent Of The Day

I read the following vent in this morning's Atlanta Urinal and Constipation.

Glenn Beck should be criminally prosecuted for libel. It's that simple.

Oh man. Where do I start? First, give us an example. Bueller? Bueller?

Second, are you really speaking of libel or of slander? Since you're obviously a libtard, asshat, booger eatin' moh-ron, you prolly don't know what is libel and what is slander. Let me 'splain it to you.

Slander is spoken. It is speech. Way back in the 8th grade when we were studying the Constitution my teacher taught us this neat way to tell the difference between libel and slander. Slander starts with as "s" as does speech. By default then, libel must be written.

So, mister booger eatin' moh-ron venter, did Beck write sumpin' that defamed someone or did he speak an untruth about someone? And exactly what did he write or say that he should be criminally prosecuted for? Did you hear him say it? Did you read sumpin' he wrote?

I doubt it. I imagine you just heard someone else come up with this nugget of wisdom and decided to share it with us.

Thanks for sharing your ignorance and stupidity with us. Now GFY!

While I live in the Pacific Northwest, Vancouver USA to be exact, I have never read the Atlanta U&C, but over the years I have read and heard that it is second only to the NY Times and the Denver Post in extreme pro-liberal and anti-American editorializing and op-ed articles. We have one paper here, the Portland Oregonian, AKA The Big Zero, that could well rival that of the NY Times, The Denver Post, and the Atlanta U&C.

Always told my students in technical writing and business writing that slander is spread by sounds and libel is let drop by letters.

Just like The Huffing & Puffington Post wanted his free speech rights taken away?

Just like a lefty. You can say anything you want until it hurts their ittle feewings then they get all assbroke and want to throw mother fuckers in jail. Typical.

Libel can actually be either written or spoken and is a heavier offense than slander, which is spoken only. Generally, it can be applied to a person in a position of power or influence who says something untrue about a person in an inferior position. So if you want to sue some famous guy for saying summpin' you don't like, then you can punish him more by claiming libel instead of slander, even if he didn't write anything. Anyway, that is what I heard some lawyer say on the radio, so I thought I would pass it along, for what it's worth.

Arrested for slander? It looks like DC police will be busy locking up 75% of Congress.

The Socialist mindset.....

Prosecuted for slander? It was OK when the Lamestream media & most Democratic leaders spread lies,madeup stories & false accusations for the 8 years of Bush`s presidency & still continues to this day trying to pin the blame for Obungholes failures on Bush.

As for Glenn Beck....he is spot on most of the time & in that rare instance he makes a mistake , he is quick to point it out & apologize for it where necessary.

Were the Lame Stream media as accurate & to the point of a given issue & as honest is Glenn Beck.....Obunghole would never have been elected president, but then again when you are trying to promote an anti-American agenda.....honesty is the first casualty.

slander
n slander
(the act of making) an untrue spoken, not written, statement about a person with the intention of damaging that person's reputation "That story about her is nothing but a wicked slander!"

v
to make such statements about (a person etc).

Assuming words have meaning, do I slander my pal "A" (who eats 6 'delicate' meals a day and takes a dump every 3rd day) when I tell my pal "B" that "A is full of shit!"?

Notice how I laid this out: I gave you the facts before I gave you the case.

Now, try a little exercise:
"You know Condi Rice and Cynthia Tucker have been in a long time thesbian relationship, don't you?"

"You don't? Well, neither did I!"

So: who has been slandered? Who is doing the slandering?

And what's wrong with being a thesbian?

The above is a precis` of exactly how some people get their talking points. Add in a microphone and a broadcasting power, and you can see why this Country is so fucked up.

Condi/Cynthia is an example of case before fact.

Facts, THEN case; not the other way around!

We'll address libel in a future post.

Damn it! I forgot to add:

"Check your local sources! See if they give you the dry facts before they lay out the SENSATIONAL 'case'!" Or if it is, in fact, the other way around.

And: "You don't? Well, neither did I!" should have read:
"You don't? Well, neither DO I!"

Howdy DanS.....

Just what does your posts here have to do with some idiot demanding Glenn Beck be prosecuted for libel?

As Denny posted, just what has Glenn wrote or said which defamed or was untrue about someone?

Just because some fool decided to ride out of town on the wackoloon stagecoach does not mean you have to buy a ticket. Think my friend , Think!
