Vision Media Apparently Would Prefer No Public Discussion About Its Lawsuit
from the that's-not-how-this-works dept
Vision Media seems to be claiming that just posting these public documents is defamatory, which seems quite odd. Also odd is that Vision Media claims that all this publicity might hurt Hugh Downs most of all. Downs, the former host of 20/20, apparently works with Vision Media and is part of the enticement to companies in trying to get them to pay to be on a Vision Media video program. But, again, if Vision Media has done nothing wrong, then it's hard to see how a discussion of the lawsuit would harm its own reputation, or that of Downs. Yet, using Downs' name in support of an attempt to silence a blog post would seem more likely to harm Downs' reputation than anything that Levy did in his own post.
