Insurers Offer Libel Coverage for Social Media Posts

Given how much of our lives is spent venting on social media, especially in the age of Trump, the more vociferous might want to consider libel insurance. A longtime necessity for journalists, such policies are now being sold to the average American, bundled with more traditional policies covering homes and cars. For an additional couple of bucks a month, you can buy yourself a little peace of mind, knowing someone else will foot the bill if you’re hit with a defamation lawsuit for what you say online.
