The First Amendment guarantees free speech but, as with any freedom, comes greater responsibility. The First Amendment's guarantee of free speech does not excuse making defamatory statements in a malicious or negligent manner. The First Amendment does not permit one to wrongfully damage an individual's name and reputation.
