The above was the hard copy Daily News headline for this story:New York Post settles defamation lawsuit over ‘Bag Men’ front-page story on Boston Marathon bombing – NY Daily News. (See what you’re missing if you don’t read the Daily News in hard copy? It’s an excellent pun.)
You might remember that I wrote about the potential for a big lawsuit in this case. And it happened.
The Post isn’t announcing how much they settled the case for and neither are the plaintiffs. This means, of course, a non-disclosure clause in the settlement agreement. Too bad. I wonder if a front-page apology is a clause in the settlement agreement.
