Question is, can those professional newsmedia and journalists witht he code of ethics avoid any legal ramifications by moving their operations exclusively to the internet. A good example of this is the Drudge Report at www.drudgereport.com.
This guy, from what I've observed, operates strictly on the internet. He contributes his own original stories as well as tracks breaking news from around the world from other sources.
If his original stories fall under the libel laws, does his operating exclusively on the internet protect him from such laws?
