Anchor away

I would like to know why our TV channel owners and anchors are not aware that it is illegal to defame any person or organisation without adequate proof. We have seen one TV anchor repeatedly waving pieces of paper, claiming that it was proof of what he was alleging. But when called by the court to present this so-called proof, he said he was not in good health, although his illness did not prevent him from hosting live TV shows.
This kind of behaviour is inexcusable and those people who are defending this anchor as a national hero should realise this.
