The difference is strictly a matter of litigiousness. Broadcast spoken/video media is “ephemeral,” and the lies that Faux News broadcasts are considered slander. The Web site is “written” and falls under the heading of libel. Furthermore, any changes to the Web site would be, in case of a libel suit, “evidence tampering.”
Ergo, Rupert Murdoch, who has deep pockets, is much more careful about publishing “printed” libel than his usual slanderous Faux News broadcasts.
I like your take on this. good stuff.
