Australia’s highest court has made a landmark ruling that media outlets are “publishers” of allegedly defamatory comments posted by third parties on their official Facebook pages
The High Court has dismissed an argument by some of Australia’s largest media organizations that for people to be publishers, they must be aware of the defamatory content and intend to convey it. The court found that by facilitating and encouraging the comments, the companies had participated in their communication.

State legislators are advancing measures meant to bar public schools from using Native American mascots in the wake of a spotlight cast by the Washington Football Team’s decision to drop its derogatory former name. Bernie Bennett has this report.
Lawmakers in Colorado and Nevada last month passed bills to bar public schools from adopting Native American mascots. They followed Washington state, where lawmakers approved a similar ban earlier this year. Lawmakers in Connecticut and Massachusetts have measures pending later this year.
Before this year, Maine was the only state to have barred schools from using Native American mascots under a 2019 measure signed into law by Democrat Gov. Janet Mills. She signed the measure shortly after the Skowhegan school district, the last in the state to use a Native American name, voted to retire its mascot.
