Is this expression accetable in the specific context?
1) -- DEFAMATION protects people from lies that harm their reputation.--
This sentence comes form an article ( Trump's Attack on Summer Zervos Blows a Hole in the First Amendment's Foundation, by Jessica Levinson) on the NBC website.
The author is a college proffessor and I do no doubt her writing ability. So is it good grammar to use DEFAMATION instead of DEFAMATION SUITS or something else? Maybe it was only that there were typos?
2) In the next sentence, she used HER rather than HIM (accepted and accustomed to in the past), THEIR, or PEOPLE'S. Do you think it's good or it's suspicious that she was seeking revenge for the long use of HIM to represent man?
