The long Daily Mail story sheds a little more light than the Times editorial with the additional background it provides. My college classmate Owen Hughes writes from Connecticut to comment: I believe in the First Amendment and I think the NYT has badly abused the trust placed in it as an essential actor under the First Amendment. So, forgive me, I hope the NYT takes a real beating. More power to the judge in this case, and more power to O’Keefe. My only other comment, as a lawyer with 40-odd years of caring for clients, is that attorney-client privilege is damn near sacrosanct. How can it ever be right to read the advice a client receives under privilege, and not just (unavoidably) learn the contents, but act upon them? To the direct detriment of that client? And then PUBLISH material based on them? I’m sorry, the taint is ineradicable and very black indeed. Yet the Times seems to see nothing amiss? To hell with them. That is a perspective that has been not been reflected in the Times’s extensive coverage of O’Keefe and Project Veritas case so far. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
