Alright. After the just awful journalism I have seen in the last few days & some of the just god awful reporting by @samanthamaiden it's time to break down the whole saga that kicked off the review of Parliament

#auspol #thread
To be clear @samanthamaiden works for News Week. A publication own by Rupert Murdoch. A man who has an interest in discrediting abusers of sexual assault. Do I expect her to be judicious in her reporting? Based on how she has treated a rape as her own personal cash cow... NOPE.
Walter Sofronoff had to issue a suppression order when this behaviour interfered with the Commission last month - @samanthamaiden would have been at the top of his list of complaints for picking pieces for clickbait. #auspol #journalism #news 📰📎🗞️🖇️…

I asked experts if Dominion Voting Systems could now sue Trump.

Backdrop: #January6thHearings revealed Trump was well informed that accusations were false.

Upshot: Makes for a powerful case of #Defamation.

Could sue for over a billion $$.

2. First Amendment living legend, Floyd Abrams:

“Dominion would have an extremely powerful libel case against him. Statements Trump made about the company were extraordinarily defamatory, provably false and enormously harmful.”…
3. Professor @zahr_said (@UWSchoolofLaw):

“Holding Mr. Trump legally liable for defamation would … provide significant public and institutional censure that could herald a change in our legal system’s apparent tolerance of outright misinformation”…

Defamation law changes are needed for freer speech #auslaw #defamation…
This editorial seeks to cover a lot of ground. It acknowledges that there have been recent changes to defamation law as part of the first stage of reforms to the national, uniform defamation laws. It mentions the new requirement of serious harm to reputation.
It is also worth mentioning the new public interest defence, which is as yet untested in the courts. The purpose of these reforms is to exclude trivial claims and to encourage public interest journalism.

A thread on defamation and why those, including PRs who post on social media opinion as fact without evidence are risking legal action.
In-country laws, any international laws law are vital knowledge area of practicing PR.
It's not a lawyer's responsibility, it's an individual's.
I just posted on social media' or 'they were my opinions and assumptions' but without evidence is defamation.
Trying to make a fact appear to be an opinion would not protect someone from legal address or a legal case.
Defence of 'honest comment' is one of the defences that can be used. This is the right of free speech allowing a person to express an opinion, even if it is prejudiced, exaggerated or obstinate. However, it must also be based on fact.
