A Magazine’s Hit Job in the 1960s and the Resulting Libel Lawsuit Is a Warning for Fox News

From a Washington Post story by Frederic J. Frommer headlined “A ’60s magazine’s election hit job is a warning for Fox News vs. Dominion”:

When Barry Goldwater was the Republican presidential nominee in 1964, he didn’t hold back. At the party’s convention that summer, he excited hardcore conservatives by famously declaring “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice” and “moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” He also spooked many liberals and moderates by talking openly about using nuclear weapons, suggesting the United States “lob one into the men’s room at the Kremlin.”
