(Studio: Anderson Cooper) What President Trump said about libel laws introduced. [TRUMP - says our libel laws are a sham: we want fairness.] Live discussion held with CNN's David Gergen & Trump biographer Michael D'Antonio about libel laws. [GERGEN - offers views on how libel laws are based on the ""New York Times" v. Sullivan case that is the bulwark of freedom of press & freedom of speech, but the administration is not really going after these laws: it is not a serious conversation.] [D'ANTONIO - offers views on how Trump has been aggressive in going to court since the 1970s.]
Cooper, Anderson
