Basically a regurgitation of some verbal political trots regarding something or other. Is this news or even newsworthy? No. And, frankly speaking, who really cares. Just another example of ink spilled for no particular purpose masquerading as reporting. Don't waste your time. Rubbish. Watching paint dry would be more edifying.

This article provides a direct link to the legal document and New York Times article in question, but I can't seem to find where the quote from Jenna Ellis was taken from. It doesn't appear to be in the legal document, and the author never says if they reached out to Ellis for comment, or took the quote from a public statement. Other than that, it would have been nice if the author had reached out to the New York Times for a statement, or summarized the New York Times article directly instead of just the legal documents' characterization of it.

Though many may well disagree with his reasons for doing so, this article presents a clear journalistic account of Trump’s suing of The NY Times

This is a very good example of a well-sourced article. It briefly describes the lawsuit filed and uses quotes from both parties to highlight what is in contention. It gives just the right amount of context into the story and then hands you off to the source material itself for the filing. Really great, practical approach to reporting on this story.

This article does little more than announce that there is a libel lawsuit against the New York Times and then provides the PDF of the libel lawsuit. There isn't much background into the history of the strife between Trump and the New York Times or about what a libel lawsuit really implies or is. USA Today even has a more in depth article on the matter (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/02/26/trump-campaign-sues-new-york-times-libel-lawsuit-russia-coverage/4883177002/).
