    Times pays damages after paywalled article's preview showed 'libellous imputation'

    Times ran a guilt by association piece, regarding the thoughts of somebody who had spoken at an event ran by an organisation of which the subject was a trustee.

    Because the article started with an accusatory headline and first paragraph and photo of the subject but the rest of article was behind a paywall and didn't show the subjects refutation of the abhorrent speech the Times had to make an apology and and pay damage to the subject.

    Will the Time move to the type of website that shows none of the article.
