KANSAS CITY (WNBTv) In an expected outcome, local Drudge-wannabe blogger tkc is forced to eat a whole steaming pile of humble crow as dished out by Louie Wright and the courts!!!!!
WNBTv tipsters (STAND UP!!!!!!) inform us that re 1116-CV22104 – LOUIE WRIGHT V TONY BOTELLO ET AL Wright will dismiss his lawsuit, as well as the right to bring any future lawsuits against tkc, if:
- tkc removes the three
libelousposts about Wright from his blog;
- tkc posts a retraction and apology that will appear THIS COMING MONDAY!!!! and remain as a link on tkc’s blog for 30 days.
This is the gist of the settlement agreement submitted to the court for approval.
If accepted the agreement will be interpreted by many savvy media watchers as proof positive that using a blog to smear people one dislikes, perhaps even making up “tips” to do so, or using “sock puppet” commenters, or edging into the land of libel and slander, will not be tolerated by the courts.
Make no mistake…This is a TOTAL WIN for Kansas City, Louie Wright and Free Speech!!!!!! And a HUGE AND WELL DESERVERED SLAP IN THE FACE OF TKC!!!!!!1
- WNBTv is actually sad (and rather surprised, to be frank) tkc had the good sense to listen to his lawyer’s advice to settle; we expect him to start ‘spinning’ this outcome in his favor almost immediately. And, given the common national attention span, many will over time come to believe him. It’s that old adage: what one says may be lies, but if one repeats the lies often enough… ↩
