In this episode, Garrett Snedeker and JWI intern Jacob Shields sit down with Professor Carson Holloway of the University of Nebraska, Omaha, to discuss his recent article for the Claremont Press titled “Rethinking Libel, Defamation, and Press Accountability.” They discuss the Supreme Court’s 1964 decision in New York Times v. Sullivan, the natural right to one’s reputation, and the most likely scenario for a challenge to current libel precedent. Professor Holloway is a Washington Fellow at The Claremont Institute’s Center for the American Way of Life. His research focuses on American constitutionalism and the liberal nationalism of the American Founding.
