'The best defense is the truth;' Private prison company sues activist for libel and loses

05:59

Activist and Forbes contributor Morgan Simon was taken to court by a private prison company for writing articles that claimed the company’s practice included family separations. While they tried to refute that by saying their detention centers only house adults, Simon and the court agreed that still separates families. Host of MSNBC’s “American Voices” Alicia Menendez is joined by Simon and Newsweek Editor-at-Large Naveed Jamali to discuss the larger implications of this lawsuit regarding First Amendment rights, family separations and private prison companies.
