On May 26, 1913, jury selection began for Theodore Roosevelt’s libel case in Marquette, Michigan. Enraged by Roosevelt’s railing against the Republican Party at a campaign event in Marquette in 1912 (after Roosevelt had split with the Republicans), the editor of the Ishpeming newspaper The Iron Ore wrote a scurrilous and unfounded editorial accusing the former president of public drunkenness.
Roosevelt won. According to the court’s statement,
“The publisher of a newspaper may
freely discuss the fitness of a person for public office, he may
lawfully communicate to the public any fact within his knowledge
respecting the official acts, character or conduct, so long as he states
as facts only the truth." TR was awarded six cents, according to him “the price of a good newspaper.” The Iron Ore cost three.
