Per Dick Pettys via Cracker Squire:
“Those dadgum blog sites. You know what I predict is going to happen? I predict somebody’s going to sue one of those site domains for slander, and somebody’s going to get hit with a big suit because there’s no accountability, and they say and do things about people that are blatantly false.
“If y’all did, you’d get sued in a New York minute … Somebody’s going to sue ’em and hit ’em with enough money … and somebody is going to say, “We’d better be careful with this.”
“We’re brazen now because people will say things ’cause they know there’s no accountability. There’s no reason for it. It bugs me a little. I see ’em do it about people who’re private citizens. I accept my role as a public official. They can say I’m bad, dumb and ugly, and truth is a defense.”
“I know everybody thinks that’s going to last a while. I don’t believe it’ll last too much longer.”
