There is a fine line between giving your opinion and defaming a person/entity. As long as you give your OPINION (and make clear that it is your opinion) and keep to the FACTS (and not misrepresent anything), then you can write something without fear of being sued - - after all, we still have first amendment/free speech rights.
However, if you KNOWINGLY make FALSE statements and present them as the truth, that's where you get into trouble.
If you knowingly make false statements and represent them as the truth, that's when you can be sued for defamation. Also, if you accuse someone of committing a crime without any proof, that's defamation per se (which means that the law presumes that you're liable for defamation and you have to disprove it).
