Vicky Iseman breaks an important historical barrier and files the first-ever legal complaint to cite a Matthew Yglesias blog post.

As long as Iseman’s legal team is citing me, I would say that based on my experience as a journalist (obviously I’m not a lawyer), I would definitely say that Iseman counts as a public figure for these purposes and notwithstanding the criticisms I made of the story, there’s no sign of “actual malice” in the legal sense.
