First amendment does not protect you from legitimate libel/defamation lawsuits.

Up to the courts to decide if that meets the standards.

Beck can always be a real patriot and sit in jail for contempt of court.

I mean if he is a journalist, he would sacrifice just as other journalist have before him.

We know there is zero chance of that happening though.

In the days after the explosions that killed three people and injured more than 260, Beck "repeatedly and falsely identified Mr. Alharbi as an active participant in the crimes that were committed on April 15, 2013, repeatedly questioned the motives of federal officials in failing to pursue or detain Alharbi and repeatedly and falsely accused Mr. Alharbi of being a criminal who had funded the attacks at the Boston Marathon," the lawsuit alleges.

The judge also ruled that Allharbi was not a public figure at the time of Beck's allegations, Politico reported.

Beck is on really shaky ground here, and he could lose everything.

If he gives his sources up, he is basically a reporter no one will trust.

If he doesn't give his sources up, he is in violation of the court.

Man, I feel for him.

So you dislike the dude And therefore its ok for him to have his 1st amendment rights violated? Well fuck man, then you are no better than the rest of them out there like BLM. If this was REALLY about anti-defamation then they would be trying to figure out how much money was lost or not by the individual claiming the lawsuit and not worrying about whether or not what was said is true or not.

And certainly you would NEVER ask a reporter to divulge his sources... Ever. So yeah, call him what you want, but how long before this precedent being set destroys alternative news media on the web? The same alternative news media we rely on for truth in this day and age? And how about when they push it all the way to websites like GLP?

I mean, someone writes a conspiracy theory post about some mainstream dude on here and then that dude sues GLP who must now reveal your identity so you can also be sued for an opinion post you wrote.

Yeah. Go ahead and cheer because you hate Beck. Ignore what is really happening here and cheer the elite on while they destroy the 1st amendment right in front of your eyes. Just because you hate the dude they are doing it to.

A federal judge has ordered talk show host Glenn Beck to name two sources he used in his Boston Marathon bombing reports. (Source: CNN)

(CNN) - A federal judge on Tuesday ordered talk show host Glenn Beck to name two confidential sources he used in his Boston Marathon bombing reports.

He is being sued for defamation for comments he made about a man who he said helped financed and orchestrate the attack.

The man, who was injured in the attack, was initially named a person of interest.

Judge Patti Saris said the court cannot determine whether Beck is liable for defamation unless he unveils the identity of two "confidential government sources" he says told him 23-year-old Abdulrahman Alharbi was involved in the 2013 Boston Marathon terrorist attack.

Though Alharbi was initially named a "person of interest" in the attack, authorities cleared his name. But Beck continued to report that Alharbi was involved.

Journalists typically withhold the names of confidential sources -- even in the courtroom -- in the interest of protecting people who offer valuable information.

The court may choose to keep the yet-to-be-named sources under a protective order. Beck may be forced to disclose the name of a third source if that person also said Alharbi was financially linked to the Boston Marathon attack.

The Irony of all of this Glenn Beck hate on GLP is that the same GLP "entertainers" or "reporters" could be next!



We are watching the destruction of our constitution and the press.



Personally I believe Beck was poisoned into losing his mind.

I stopped supporting him but I truly think he has suffered physically from his enemies. (all speculation on my part)

As an aside it just disgusts me that our courts have become puppets of the Saudis...

Thank you for posting, and I believe the same, too. It is all so sad, and I think Beck is right on this story.

The Obamas got him out of the Country and back to Saudi Arabia too soon. They were all over him, and did not even allow him to be questioned.

You know I remember when this happened. I do not believe Beck clearly identified this guy as committing the crime. While I do not like Beck, I remember he made the connection that the saudi was originally detained for questioning, his family was on the terror watch list, and i believe the first lady visited him in the hospital. he was quickly whisked out of the country (similar to 9.11) without any question. I believe Beck was trying to assert why was there no additional scrutiny on this guy.
