Vicki Iseman:
Is She A Public Or Private Figure?

by Ashby Jones - December 31, 2008 - Law Blog

Tuesday’s news that Beltway lobbyist Vicki Iseman had filed a defamation suit against the New York Times over its February article about her and John McCain caused quite a stir here at Law Blog Central. Interests were piqued not only because the case involves journalists and the media, but because everyone here, it seems, had his or her own notion over whether Iseman would be deemed a “public” or “private” figure for the case’s purposes. In a defamation case, the public/private issue is a big one. Public-figure plaintiffs generally have to prove more to win their case than do private-figure plaintiffs.

This is more of an interview than an article, however it proves some basic facts about law in our courts that are important to remember.

First important point, no one has a clue what the law says or means. Our corrupt judges have so blurred all legal issues so that the courts can rule randomly about anything and there is absolutely nothing that you can do. This allows for the rule of judges to premept the rule of law with no chance to disagree.

The next point is that the press are exempt from ever being held accountable for political bias. no one with any sanity would doubt that Vicki Iseman was smeared by the New York Times for any reason other than that she was on the opposite side of a political issue. If this is not basic malice, malice does not exist. However our courts will never allow such basic obvious reality to interfere with their game of court.

Final point about our courts is liberals always win, no matter whether there is any justice in that position or not.
