Was there any lie in the statement at all? Or is everything either the truth or an opinion?
Here's the link to the article. Please read.
I don't know. There's no way for me to prove if it's true or not. It's TAG's recollection of things against YAC's recollection of things. They're the only ones who know the truth.
I cannot know what could happen if there is a lawsuit as this will turn on the facts.
Essentially, it is not defamation if the facts are true and not lies and it is not defamation if someone has an opinion and expresses it. Their opinion can be completely unfair and irrational but if it's an opinion it is not defamation. I can say I think that man is a dishonest liar and it is not defamation. But I cannot say that man is a dishonest liar if I cannot prove that is the case.
Do you see what I mean?
