Reputation Damage



Reputations are delicate. They are easily influenced by facts, opinions, and judgements. A lot of these arise from the media.


Recently, the article Image/Reputation Damage From Media News Reports: Is it Legally Actionable?, was published in the TASA Knowledge Center. This article is about exactly what the title denotes: when can a damaged reputation be legally actionable? The author provides solid case examples that he or she has worked on. 

Here is an excerpt from the article:

"Let’s be clear about one thing first, the media is not the culprit and cannot be the targets of lawsuits if their reports were accurate as to the facts and there was no judgements made in the reports as to guilt or innocence.  One might quibble about the extent of the coverage provided or whether it was fair or balanced but the media has a right to report the news as long as it is fair and accurate."
