Hahaha! National Review smears climate scientist, dares him to sue, begs for cash to defend suit!
Like his claim to be a Nobel laureate, the charges against NR are baseless and very much worth fighting. National Review doesn’t look to get itself sued, but neither does it shy from a fight, especially one like this. Rich Lowry’s response to Mann’s legal threats exactly captures our mood and determination.
Whodda thunk it? A crappy publication that pushes junk science and writing finds itself the victim of the free market--no one wants to buy it, so it's cash strapped. And now defending itself from a victim of its smear campaigns.

3. "not a non-profit — we are just not profitable" - shouldn't they pack up, then?
By their free market principles, it's clear not enough people want to buy their shit. It's a pretty pathetic magazine/website that can't afford to defend one libel case, especially one whose editor writes chest-beating crap like "we look forward to teaching him a thing or two about the law and about how free debate works in a free country".
