Can Public Officials Be SLANDERED? Yes They Can. Women's History Month


Misogyny Is a Problem in America

UPDATE. When we look to the nightly news we trust that the information has been VERIFIED & is based on Facts, not Rumors. This is Implied Credibility.

We trust that individual Reporters will be Fair & not bring their personal biases & prejudices with them in a misleading way.

Yesterday on March 4th, one day after Primary Day for the 2020 Election, a News Story was circulating online IMPLYING Voter Suppression at Texas Southern University.

Nothing could be further from the TRUTH.

In September of 2019, TSU HOSTED the 3rd Democratic Debate on ABC News.

'

Currently the WORLD is concerned about the Public Health Crisis with the Corona Virus.

FACT CHECKING & VERIFICATION has never been more important.

You CANNOT panic the Public with the RUMOR MILL.

Hence my statement today about POSSIBLE Voter Suppression at Texas Southern.

That RUMOR is VERIFIABLY BLATANTLY FALSE.

Meanwhile, MISOGYNY is alive & well. #MisogynyCostHillaryClintonTheElection.

***************************************

The benchmark for Slander for anyone in the Public Eye is extremely high, particularly for Public Officials. Public Officials are Elected to conduct business on the Public's behalf. As such the performance of their duties does require a higher level of transparency than a Public Figure, like a musician or actor or anyone else who has voluntarily put themselves in the Public Eye.

Even Public Officials & Public Figures do have some expectation of Privacy in their Private lives.

Slander & Defamation are defined as "harm to one's reputation" resulting from the Circulation of False or Misleading Information.

1. Is it False?

2. Was it Circulated?

3. Was it Believed?

While no one can argue that Hilary Clinton's NAME is not Hillary Clinton, what happened to her during the 2016 Presidential Election Campaigns was an outright smear campaign far beyond Defamation of Character - - - more like Explosive Character Assassination BECAUSE OF HER NAME & her Campaign Platform to PROTECT OBAMACARE.

Because of a NAME.

Because of a NAME.

Because of a NAME.

I really don't think the HealthCARE Candidate was looking to "Bomb anyone's NOSE,"

Does anyone hear how ridiculous that is???

Holy Frijoles. Learning to Bomb-A-Nose Cost Us Our HealthCARE

Yet the Defamation, Slander & Character Assassination of Hillary Clinton has been so complete,

Because LIES are at the heart of Libel (the written word) & Slander (the spoken word) she really has no legal remedy to the defamatory attacks on her as a person.
