Now, the Tank tends to leave media law to the experts: august names, such as Justice Eady, Judge Judy and Ian Hislop.
But we do know that libel is a big no-no and has serious consequences – a trait we share with the good folks at right wing political broadcast, sorry motoring show, Top Gear, who are equally aware that libellous claims are not the way to go about things. And now they have a court ruling to prove it.
You may recall electric car maker Tesla slapped a lawsuit on Clarkson and co earlier in the year, claiming the BBC show broadcast "staged footage" of its Roadster model running out of charge during a race.
Top Gear denied the claims and earlier this week was cleared of libel at the high court in London. Mr Justice Tugendhat - yet another judge with the same first name - ruled viewers would not have reasonably compared the Roadster's performance on the show's test track to its real life performance.
However, the malicious falsehood hearing, centring around five claims the BBC show made, including the crucial suggestion that the car's range was 55 miles per charge rather than Tesla's 200 mile estimate, and the manner in which it gave the impression that the car's brakes had broken, is still on-going.
So, naturally, we have to be careful what we say. But what grinds the Tank's gears is that other commentators seem to be able to play both faster and looser with the truth and face little recourse.
