Clarence Thomas is a bad, bad man

Ian Millhiser reports that Justice Clarence Thomas is trying to undermine freedom of the press. I try not to be alarmist about the Trump administration on this site, but if Thomas "opens up libel laws" as Trump requested, journalism in this country will go straight to hell. The destruction of Gawker has already proven that a billionaire can override freedom of the press through litigation; Thomas would give that kind of power to virtually everybody.
