Editor’s Pick: NY Post on Palin’s Defamation Suit Against NY Times

Monday will see the New York Post’s Ben Kesslen reported on how “Sarah Palin will square off against the New York Times Monday when her defamation case against the paper goes to trial in Manhattan.” He explained: “At the center of the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee’s federal suit is a 2017 editorial that incorrectly linked Palin to the 2011 mass shooting in Arizona where six people were killed and more than a dozen were injured, including then-Congresswoman Gabby Giffords.”

“Palin said the mistake was libelous and sued the Times in 2017 in Manhattan federal court, where jury selection will begin Monday morning,” Kesslen noted. He added: “The Gray Lady worked hard to get the case dismissed, but a three-judge appellate court ruling in 2019 said it could go forward.”
