Peter E. Kane takes a critical look at the development of the
present law through a discussion of seventeen landmark libel
One of the many points Kane clarifies is the important
distinction between an error and a lie when judging whether someone
is guilty of libel. For example, in the series of events that led
to "Goldwater vs. Ginzburg, "Ralph Ginzburg, publisher of "fact
"magazine, compiled and printed in "fact "a montage of quotes he
had collected from psychiatrists about Barry Goldwater. It took
five years of legal sparring for the courts to conclude that
Ginzburg had deliberately published a malicious and irresponsible
document and to rule in favor of Goldwater. Kane closes with a
discussion of current thinking on possible libel reform.
