Did NPR Hide the Ball on Depp v Heard? (H&H | 5-24-22)Vote
As one of the few media outlets created by Congress and directly receiving public funds, NPR (or National Public Radio) is ostensibly neutral, but where Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are concerned, is anyone ever really neutral?
Welcome to Hang-Outs and Headlines! The media suggests and shapes our understanding of the news items that fill our days (and our social media timelines) - sometimes fairly and sometimes quite unfairly.
Here Hoeg (and often friends) dive deep into just what's happening in the story behind the stories, with a whole lot of hanging-out, chatting, and wild tangents as well.
For some background (c/o @legalbytes):
Johnny Depp is suing Amber Heard for defamation stemming from her OpEd published in The Washington Post in 2018.
Amber Heard is counter suing for defamation claims based on statements made by Johnny Depp's former lawyer.
The trial is taking place in Fairfax, Virginia, the proper venue as The Washington Post is headquartered in said location.
Presiding is Judge Penny Azcarate, Johnny Depp is represented by Ben Chew, Camille Vasquez, and more. Amber Heard is represented by Elaine Bredehoft, Ben Rottenborn, and more.
