“Responsible journalism” to get Supreme test

Interesting discussion from the Law Times on a potentially groundbreaking decision going to the Supreme Court, stretching the definition of defamation, which lower courts have called “responsible journalism” and allows media a little more leeway as part of their role in society (this has been discussed before in this space.) This view focusses on what is the definition of media, and will this ruling affect only MSM, or will it extend into the blogosphere?
