GOP candidates to bring legal action against Greenville News?
'Hate group' linked to four GOP candidates
Greenville County Council member, Scott Case, is reportedly hinting legal action against the Greenville News. WORD 1330 AM has been reporting this along with a quotation from Case taken from the "Russ and Lisa" morning show.
I certainly share his frustration, but the article itself gives breathing room for the News. It is the headline that is questionable. The article itself is certainly not "fair and balanced", but it isn't a clear case of libel or slander - insinuation would be the most accurate term.
It also makes one wonder where the Greenville News was earlier in the election season when an anonymous group was sending out misleading mailings attacking some of these very candidates.
