Do you know the definition of slander?

I read it about an hour ago. What part of the story was false?

You are upset that they don't note that he returns money from his office every year. You are upset that they don't say he turns down his pension.

Omission is not slander unless they make the first claim untrue. Neither of those make his air travel purchases untrue.

So instead of running around calling them slanderous assholes (I'm sure they will get many an email like that) why not ask them why they haven't written about his returning money?

Excellent points, except

slander is spoken, libel is in writing.

There's a whole lot of slander and libel going on in the MSM when it comes to RP but, hey... it's called Politics.

Hopefully, people are able to recognize it when they see or hear it.
