This is worth reading the next time you find yourself believing Newsweek. In their article on tort reform, they gave the example of Ryan Warner who ran a softball tournament in which someone was injured. According to the article, the tournament was cancelled for this year due to fear of lawsuits. Newsweek didn't mention that Ryan is actually immune from lawsuit, or that he works in the insurance industry. There's more here, if you're interested, like the fact that the "$70 million verdict" listed in the article, because it is being paid out over an extensive period of time, will actually only costs the defendants $8.3 million.

The media is broken.
