For that matter, Susan Long made a bold statement and so got sued by that CEO. The thing is that journalist are not that easily sued in court for several reasons - they are protected by what is known as "fair comment". What is fair or not fair is up to the judge to decide.

Another is that they are backed up by a huge organisation.Originally Posted by reachme2003
