Giuliani’s Defamation Suit Defense: “I’m A Reporter”

Media Matters has the transcript:

RUDY GIULIANI:  I’m going to fight it on legal grounds but I’ll also show — you know, I used to do defamation law for ten years, for the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, the New York Daily News, kind of one of my specialties, so I get two defenses, right? Part of it — part of what they’re saying is I profited because of my podcast and my radio show. So I’m a reporter, so Times against Sullivan applies. They would have to show that not only did I say something false but I absolutely knew it was false.
