Levant loses. Love it.

This case will be very, very useful for anyone who is sued by bigots – bigots who want to cancel their critics and suppress free speech.

    I’m glad Rebel (and Levant) lost. However, one of the court’s key findings has me curious.

    It seems they are saying that Rebel/Levant failed to show specific tangible harm, as a result of the Al Jazeera statements. If that is the benchmark for our court system, I would think/hope that many or most allegations of racism/sexism/slander should fail. Many of them are very esoteric in nature, and fall back to “hurt feelings”. It seems, in this case, the court gives no gravity to hurt feelings – which is the right approach, in my view.

    Wait.

    I dislike Rebel as much as the next guy, because Levant is pretty terribly annoying. Can a fellow be on one hand punishing others for free speech while attempting to defend his own and that of his friends?

    Oh, right. I remember the word now.

    Hypocrite. That’s right.
