Right to Marry Star Missed by Fox News?

When the town council in Fort Myers Beach, Florida recently fired its city manager, Scott Janke, after finding out he had married a “porn star,” although the coverage on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” was extensive enough to include one of their own infamous erotic montages, the legal analysis from lawyers Megyn Kelly and Lis Wiehl seemed to be missing mention of an important constitutional right as I show in this video.

The recent clips from the Fox News program “The O’Reilly Factor” were taken from a segment broadcast on July 28, 2009, that you can find online at http://www.foxnews.com/video/index.html?playerId=videolandingpage&streamingFormat=FLASH&referralObject=7486882

The clip of Megyn Kelly from last years’ Fox News program “The O’Reilly Factor” was broadcast on May 15, 2008, and is part of my video titled “Fox News Spins Gay Marriage Ruling in O’Reilly No Spin Zone?” that you can find on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riGXuhwLYVI

In addition, you can find the full text of the US Supreme Court case that I quote in this video, Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1 (1967), at http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=US&vol=388&invol=1

And, finally, as always, you can find DOZENS and DOZENS more examples of Fox News bias on my Fox News bias playlist on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=A3BD2524FE99BD4D

Lawfare: Historical and Semiotic Origins of “Lawfare” (Panel 1)

September 10, 2010
War Crimes Research Symposium
Frederick K. Cox International Law Center
Case Western Reserve University School of Law
Moderator:
Prof. Tawia Ansah, Visiting Professor, Case Western Reserve University School of Law
Speakers:
Prof. Wouter Werner, VU University, Amsterdam
Prof. Susan Tiefenbrun, Thomas Jefferson School of Law
Summary:
Traditionally “Lawfare” was defined as “a strategy of using—or misusing—law as a substitute for traditional military means to achieve an operational objective.” But lately, commentators and governments have applied the concept to International Criminal Tribunals, the defense counsel’s tactics challenging the detention of al Qaeda suspects in Guantanamo Bay, and as indicated in the quote above to the controversial Goldstone Commission Report. This symposium and Experts Meeting, featuring two-dozen leading academics, practitioners, and former government officials from all sides of the political spectrum, will examine the usefulness and appropriate application of the “Lawfare” concept.
