Newspaper not liable for comment by website user
This is an interesting decision about defamation in the age of new technology. The Newspaper was held not to be liable for comments made on the comments section of it's website, even if they maintain some editorial control.
Also, an article calling someone a "birther" and therefore a "racist" is not actionable, as it is merely the opinion of the writer.
