Another repercussion of these news stations trying to battle with each other in getting information out first. Fact checking gets thrown out the window.

I'm sorry, he sure can sue. I should have said he won't win.

I'm sure CNN used the word "suspect", which will negate any possible defamation. Because he probably was a suspect considering his brother used his ID, right?

And of course, typical Americans, worried about who can sue who.......

No, some news outlets were falsely reporting that. The older brother (Ryan) was originally targeted as the shooter by the media, posting his name and photo. His facebook was getting bombarded. He posted something like, "IT WASN'T ME. I'M ON THE BUS COMING HOME FROM WORK. IT WASN'T ME." and eventually just closed his facebook account.

Pretty sure they weren't falsely reporting information.

Of course he can.. Typical US Media journalism jumping to conclusions so one network can get a jump on the next all for $$. Nothing new.

Default Re: So can Adam Lanza's brother sue?

He absolutely can. Having a profile picture on facebook is no grounds for the media to show it to the nation and label you a mass-murderer. He could talk about the psychological effect it had on him, the problems he will have to deal with from this, and he will get a big paycheck.

I don't think he'll need to go to court, as the media corporation doesn't want these type of attention. They'll gladly pay him and settle outside of court.

But again, it's not a slam dunk. The media could use public policy, as afterall, the news was generated to inform the public. It was also supplied by the police enforcement.
