What takes a hit is the MONOPOLY of the TWISTED version of the TRUTH that controls society and creates victims of corruption, brought to you by Institutional Press.
What takes a HIT is the Main Stream Media that REFUSES to report on what is really going on in the world, in real peoples lives.
What takes a HIT is the BULLSHIT news that is keeping us in the dark on what really matters and protecting unethical, unconstitutional, dirty lawyers such as Kevin Padrick, David Aman and Marc Randazza.
Sure WISH Kevin Padrick WOULD TELL THE TRUTH, but that will NEVER Happen
"Is having free speech more important than telling the truth?
The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals appears to believe it is. On Jan. 17, a three-judge panel reversed a federal district court judgment against a Montana blogger and ordered a new trial. The district judge had allowed a defamation claim against the blogger to go to trial and the jury awarded the plaintiff — an Oregon lawyer appointed trustee in a bankruptcy case — $2.5 million in damages. The lawyer, Kevin Padrick, and his company, Obsidian Finance Group, are thinking about appealing the reversal to the Supreme Court."
"The latter part of the ruling sent up flares within the journalistic community and in the blogosphere.
Some journalists objected to the idea that anyone would treat a prolific Internet-savvy individual with a history of posting false accusations the same as established reporters. Bloggers rose to Cox’s defense, contending First Amendment protections of speech and the press apply to everyone, not just to those working for media companies.
The appeals court sided with the bloggers, and cited a litany of Supreme Court rulings over the past 50 years in which the justices have refused to differentiate between members of the media and ordinary citizens. In its landmark Citizens United vs. Federal Elections Commission ruling, the high court said it had “consistently rejected the proposition that the institutional press has any constitutional privilege beyond that of other speakers.” The appeals court judges agreed, saying “the protections of the First Amendment do not turn on whether the defendant was a trained journalist, formally affiliated with traditional news entities, engaged in conflict-of-interest disclosure, went beyond just assembling others’ writings, or tried to get both sides of a story.”
And therein lies the problem. By drawing no distinction between what the judges called “the institutional press and other speakers” — because such a distinction “is unworkable” — the court left the door open to the kinds of abuses committed by Cox, who they acknowledged “apparently has a history of making similar allegations and seeking payoffs in exchange for retraction.” In fact, the district court held and the appeals court agreed that Cox’s other posts about Padrick and Obsidian “employed figurative and hyperbolic language and could not be proved true or false,” in other words, so outrageous that no “reasonable reader” would believe them to be true, a naive reaction that didn’t take into account the amount of business the plaintiffs say they lost as a result of Cox’s postings.
Americans’ right to free speech is a precious thing and must be protected with every means available. Unfortunately, part of the price for protecting that right is that people such as Cox are free to unfairly attack and damage the reputations of innocent victims without being held accountable. As Padrick told reporter David Carr in a New York Times story published after the district court ruling, “If defamatory speech is allowed just because it is on the Internet, it cheapens the value of journalism and makes it less worthy of protection.”
The Problem that actually lies there in, with all this, IS the FACT that newspapers, traditional media of all kinds, as well as TV News and Institutional Press are controlled by money and politics and they REFUSE to REPORT on Corrupt Overreaching Judges and Attorneys who abuse the courts, commit fraud on the courts, sue and bully those who expose them, oppress and jail whistle blowers and REMAIN SILENT about the REAL NEWS that We the "PEOPLE" really NEED TO KNOW.
Also note, folks, the New York Times, Forbes, Fox News and other main stream media defame, slander, twist, and flat out lie on a daily basis. They also conveniently do not report on what is really going on in the world, so they can focus on the lives of celebrities and other fluff to keep society in the dark. These mainstream "journalists" are simply not "ALLOWED" to actually report the news.
Such as my case, the AP press does an article, misspells, misquotes and it's broadcast everywhere, as if that local paper or news entity wrote the article. Kevin Padrick "told" the New York Times, and so that is FACT?? So a guy you are claiming is involved in massive fraud and corruption calls the New York Times and says you are VERY BAD and gives a partial email string of emails that was sent AFTER he filed a 10 million dollar lawsuit against you and you were acting as your own attorney, in order to paint you as a criminal and seek further revenge AFTER a $2.5 million dollar verdict was already handed to you, and this is NEWS worth reading?? Worth Believing? I Say Bullshit.
Kevin Padrick is an Evil THUG, an over reaching lawless attorney who set up and betrayed his own clients, abused his power as trustee and an attorney, violated bankruptcy law as far as I read the law to be, and caused massive duress and damage to the lives of the real estate victims (creditors and investors) over years.
Read the details of the Entire Summit Bankruptcy. Do your journalistic homework and STOP believing the New York Times YAMMER who wants BLOGGERS to NOT have EQUAL Rights as they do in our courts of law.
David Carr of the New York Times, and Kashmir Hill of Forbes, as well as Bob Garfield of NPR and countless others publicly flogged Crystal Cox and made her, ME, look as a criminal in a civil trial, and completely distorted the TRUTH and that is used as evidence for JUDGES and for the Lynch Mob waiting to discredit an Anti-Corruption Blogger?? Really??
Kevin Padrick is the BAD GUY, and makes millions monthly putting other peoples's lives and businesses under duress, taking them over, lying, bullying litigants, suing people into submission, perjuring himself in court, taking over companies, tearing people's lives apart, twisting media perception and well HE IS A Financial TYRANT.
but Hey, if Dipshit David Carr is your GO TO GUY on law and the REAL Story, well I suppose there is nothing I can do about that, ENJOY your TWISTED TRUTH.
