    Key word, “network”, Ever heard of freelance journalism? Anybody can be a journalist, well, anybody that can write. The definition of journalist is someone who writes in a journal. It doean’t have to be a syndicated journal, or a major metropolitan newspaper. Freedom of speech is at play here also. “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech or the press. So this judge just pulls this “law” out of his ass, and enforces it? I didn’t read anything about the $2.5 million in damage this blogger caused this entity. Or the original $10 million. That’s a lot of unproven damages. Back to the “slander”, “defamation”, “libel”, where’s the proof? In fact this state has a law that contradicts this insane judge.
