Blogger Threatened with Libel Suit

In a post on slashdot this morning a fellow blogger announced that his friend, Atrios, is being threatened with legal action for posting a link to Donald Luskin’s book. Atrios titled the link, “Diary of a Stalker”. Nevermind the fact that several other news organizations have called Luskin a stalker and Luskin himself even refers to himself as having stalked… nevermind any of that.

Personally, I think Luskin needs to get a cup of coffee and let it slide. Atrios has a right to post what he thinks and if his opinions happen to reflect that of other publications Luskin should be threatening legal action against them as well. They have more market penetration than your average blogger does.
