OPINION AND EDITORIAL
Internet observers were startled to learn that a federal judge has set a trial date for the slander, libel and defamation lawsuit against “Hollywood film maker” Jason Goodman. Two previous Goodman side-kicks, Susan “Queen Tut” Holmes of Fort Collins, Colorado and Patricia “the dish” Negron of Needham, Massachusetts are co-defendants in the action.
The federal lawsuit in Virginia is largely seen as an out-growth of the mysterious Port of Charleston “dirty bomb hoax” in South Carolina on June 14th, 2017. At issue are purported falsehoods and “lies” that were allegedly widely distributed by Jason Goodman on his conspiracy channel “CrowdSource The Truth”.
