    •  defamation. got it wrong and put foot down (0+ / 0-)

      NYP even defended putting the wrong facts on the front page, without regard to to the facts or reputation of the subject.

      Willful defamation.

      Not a lawyer, but I bet it holds up. A correction or apology is due when a news outlet makes a massive mistake. NYP didn't do that. They basically said we were right to do what we did.

      cheerleaders need not apply.
