How Can We Make This Work?

From the BBC:
the book was protected by the defence known as Reynolds qualified privilege.

This allows the media to publish information, even if it turned out to be untrue and defamatory, provided the public had the right to know it and it was the product of responsible journalism.

This sounds like a sensible rule and I am sure I could increase my drinking sufficiently to meet the standard British definition of a journalist :)
