Feb 03, 2011 Appearing tonight on Fox5 TV news, Washington, D.C.
To those in the Washington, D.C., television area, watch me tonight around 5:15-5:30 p.m. on Fox 5, Washington DC, about Redskins owner Dan Snyder’s libel suit against the City Paper. The First Amendment rules, of course, always.
The lawsuit, filed yesterday in New York, is here.
I wish I could find an opportunity during the interview to change the team’s name from the degrading Redskins name.
The City Paper has no clean hands, but has the First Amendment on its side. The paper has never been a model of journalism the entire twenty-four years I have been the Washington, D.C., area. I understand that its article depicts Snyder with horns, which if not an expression of anti-Jewish bigotry would seem to evince ignorance or uncaring about the historical use of horns in reference to Jewish people.
