Mylan Sues the Post-Gazette

From what I have been given to understand, it is actually crap like this that drives newspapers to get more lame even as the blogosophere happens to get more interesting.

The Cecil company's statement described the coverage as "sensational and misleading" and said the newspaper "mischaracterized a minor deviation from an internal Mylan procedure, creating the false appearance of significant quality and regulatory issues." (P-G, Team Effort)

Maybe if we need anything it's a legal defense foundation for media that draws lawsuits from folks who feel wounded by ungenerous characterizations and perspectives.

As the P-G was being celebrated by several in our blogosphere for writing a hard-hitting investigatory piece on Mylan Inc, I thought to myself, "Well, that's great -- but the subject was a safely out-of-town company and a non-advertiser with little political or cultural clout around here." Seems even that is too risky.
