"The law needs to look at journalism as a thing you do, not journalists as a thing you are," says First Amendment attorney Marc Randazza.

Randazza, who runs the law blog The Legal Satyricon, was a consulting attorney on the headline-grabbing Steubenville, Ohio rape case, in which a local blogger posted and commented upon photographs that seemingly implicated several of the town's high school football players in a gang rape. When the blogger subsequently was sued for defamation by one of the players, Randazza helped with her defense.

Reason TV's Zach Weissmueller sat down with Randazza to discuss the case, as well as broader questions of defamation, the limits of free speech, and the changing legal definitions of "press" and "journalism."

Approximately 8 minutes.
