I find it fascinating that I learn about these "libelous" accusations when the mainstream media picks up the story that the public figure files the lawsuit. If the she was indeed libelled, the press surrounding her wanting $25MM between the Star and Natl Enquirer will bound to bring the story's attention to those at the Modesto country club.

Learning this about Mrs. Condit does not change my opinion of her. Her husband's deeds and her "stand by her man" attitude was the basis of my opinion of her.

And considering the source, I don't know if it has the same libelous consequences being printed the New York Times. Next thing your going to tell me the Star's sister publication libeled batboy when they reported batboy is madly in love with jenna bush.[link to weekly world news, no username/password req]

The statements "could falsely convey to the reader that (Carolyn Condit) is an intemperate hothead who will do or say anything to get the attention of her husband and who acts wildly out of control," the lawsuit said.

I don't know. Threatening to kill yourself, trashing the family house and seeking counseling. These all would seem like pretty sane things to be doing after being married to Gary Condit for a while...

They certainly don't look very sad on that photograph.
Would the word cynical evoke any associations here?
Or proud?
But maybe MetaFilter should be careful too ...
