I don't think that putting links to news articles which are published on the web is violating any law or anyone's rights. In fact, I wonder if bbil714 is at all familiar with the first ammendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Certainly news topics that are covered by professional journalists working for media outlets (newspapers, websites, etc.) report their information to the public, that is their job. How my blogging on the topic and linking through to the news stories, and sometimes including verbatim quotes from those articles, and making it clear that I am quoting X article is not a violation of any American law that I know of.
My own opinion on broad topics is my own opinion and I have the freedom of speech to protect me.
I can write on my blog on my opinions on general topics such as child abuse, education, homeschooling, parenting methods, et cetera. Blogging on general topics is not a violation of any American law that I know of.
Here is a copy of the comment that was left on my blog today by
"I have forwarded your "blog" to the Jameses attorney.
Hopefully you will be added to their civil suit for your continued UNFOUNDED lies about an INNOCENT man who was murdered. Good luck."
