Tasini: 'There's a lot of support out there' for HuffPo lawsuit


Joe Mullin tells Jonathan Tasini that most of the public discussion of his Huffington Post lawsuit "seems pretty negative." HIs response:

I disagree. I think there’s a lot of support out there. I keep getting emails from a whole variety of writers who want to join on as plaintiffs, who are giving us all sorts of inside information. There still is a lot of fear out there. Some of the people expressing opposition to what we’re doing are just bootlickers. I think people fear being blacklisted—which I was when I sued The New York Times. And I understand that fear.
