Yeah this is insane and honestly is the only reason I really care about the story.  The recent opposition to a free press is terrifying and it was pretty easy to see the vultures would line up on this case to try and pick the last remains of our national carcass clean.

I'd not call the Sandmann case to be about "free" press, but about "reckless" press. When a media source reports something it should take responsibility for what it published. This is why Alex Jones is now banned widely.

Say, didn't you say the guy at Berkeley, who got punched, brought it on himself by having an offensive sign? Do we get free speech, or not?

Theyre not allowed to make up any story they want now. 

Right. Because they will be sued. Like they are right now.

I would agree on the surface but the whole slippery slope argument really seems to apply here when the people pushing the lawsuit are the same people who support a POTUS who calls the press "the enemy of the people" . In fact if you read the lawsuits they read like a Trump campaign rally. Which BTW in an amazing piece of irony im pretty sure the lawyers defamed Washpo in their lawsuit with their pro Trump rant.

We absolutely do. One conservative value I still hold onto though, even though no one else seems to, is personal responsibility. One can be legally right and morally wrong at the same time.

But it is a logical fallacy to say the enemy of my enemy is my friend. I do agree it seems pro Trump people are often anti Media, but if you have two sides one side is always going to be opposed to the territory the other side has staked out. I miss when bipartisan agreements were more common.

Agree. A law can be legal and yet immoral, and something can be moral but illegal.

Me too. I wish like hell we could go back to debating budget deficits and geopolitical priorities.
