After backlash for his decision to reopen Liberty University’s campus amid the coronavirus pandemic, Jerry Falwell Jr., the school’s president, said arrest warrants had been issued accusing two journalists who covered the controversy of trespassing.
Falwell ― who has repeatedly downplayed the threat of the virus, going so far as to characterize the response to the pandemic as an attempt to undermine President Donald Trump ― lambasted articles in The New York Times and ProPublica as “false and misleading.”
Falwell told conservative radio host Todd Starnes on Wednesday he intends to sue both publications for defamation and had gone to a local magistrate to swear out misdemeanor warrants against Julia Rendleman, a freelance photographer for the Times, and Alec MacGillis, a ProPublica reporter, accusing them of trespassing on the Liberty’s campus in Lynchburg, Virginia.

I once took a journalism class where if you made a mistake with a single person's name in any article the result was an automatic fail in the course. The professor justified this draconian measure by advising writers that few mistakes hurt a paper's reputation as hard as getting a subscriber's name wrong. Some people wait all their life to get quoted in the newspapers and if their name was wrong, the moment was ruined. I am probably alone in thinking major faults in the thesis (including misspelling the subject's personal name) should auto-forfeit the debate. How can we expect to enjoy an efficient discussion of terms if we have to waste a round correcting and confirming major elements of the thesis? If I see major grammar or spelling mistakes in a thesis, my instinct is to drive that mistake into the heart of the instigation.
