Trump loses all of his libel suits

Vanity Fair - “Donald J. Trump is a libel bully. Like most bullies, he's also a loser, to borrow from Trump's vocabulary.”

That's the opening of “Donald J. Trump Is A Libel Bully But Also A Libel Loser,” an analysis of seven different lawsuits he's filed, by Susan Seager, a media law specialist at the University of Southern California. (Media Law Resource Center)

“Trump and his companies have been involved in a mind-boggling 4,000 lawsuits over the last 30 years and sent countless threatening cease-and-desist letters to journalists and critics.” Neither he nor his companies have won a speech-related case, something to be recalled as he threatens The New York Times and several women who have accused him of sexual assault.

Sam, you're now in the same league and category as Rush Limbaugh, Savage, or Matt Drudge. You're now no different, just beating a difference horse in the same crooked race.
The oligarchs have foreclosed on the Fourth Estate and in place of the once noble edifice we now find a brothel and another hustling pimp. So there you have it, Sam Smith just keepin' the bitches in check, baby.

On the contrary, Anonymous. Citing an academic study that has reviewed a"mind boggling 4,000 lawsuits over the last thirty years" is distinctly legitimate. Humbaugh, Savage and Drudge spew personal invective, rather than citing actual research results from the very brief moments that this observer has heard. "Bitches, brothels and hustling pimps" notwithstanding.
