John Walsh Quoted in Caribbean Netnews on Defamation Retraction

First Amendment Senior Counsel John J. Walsh was quoted in an article "When wronged or defamed, get an immediate correction - Part 1," which appeared in Caribbean Netnews on May 4, 2009. The article explains the importance of immediately correcting misinformation once published before it becomes a means to malign and defame others. Mr. Walsh says an injured party can ask for a correction, a retraction or an apology. "A correction by the publisher tells the public that a mistake was made and provides the correct facts," he says. "A retraction advises the public that specific statements are withdrawn, usually accompanied by an apology, or at least a statement of regret."
