Does the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protect defamation? Explain why or why not.

New York, 268 U.S. 652), they’ve applied to the rules set by government at any level — federal, state, and local. Also the all kids of speech’s like Slander, libel or defamation. There are many, many nuances here — and the rules are different depending on whether or not the injured person is a public or private figure.
