Re: Rachel Maddow sued for $10 million by One America News in defamation case
Part of the link...
One America News sued Rachel Maddow for more than $10 million on Monday for defamation after she called the conservative television network "paid Russian propaganda."
The small, family-owned network based in San Diego is challenging Fox News for conservative cable and satellite TV viewers and has received favorable tweets from President Donald Trump.
The lawsuit contends that Maddow's comment on her July 22 MSNBC show were retaliation after OAN President Charles Herring accused cable television giant Comcast of censorship. The suit contends that Comcast refused to carry the channel because it "counters the liberal politics of Comcast's own news channel, MSNBC."
A week after Herring sent an email to a Comcast executive, Maddow opened her MSNBC show by referring to a report in the Daily Beast that said an OAN employee also worked for Sputnik News, which is linked to the Russian government.
"In this case, the most obsequiously pro-Trump right-wing news outlet in America really literally is paid Russian propaganda," Maddow said on "The Rachel Maddow Show."
"Their on-air U.S. politics reporter is paid by the Russian government to produce propaganda for that government," Maddow said.
Its time and it could not have happened to a more deserving person.
Do not get to excited as if the back story is true you have just fallen into the quick sand OAN wants you to. I would suggest to all that you watch OAN and see what they broadcast. I have. What I have seen is nothing but far right nonsense with truth not really having a place. They have gotten worse over the last few months. They are supposed to be trying to replace FOX as the official Trump news outlet. They started this drive in earnest when Trump started to go after Fox and how he was covered. At one time RT was looked at as the best supporter of Trump, but lately OAN I think has replaced them. I last looked at OAN this past weekend while traveling. They would fit well into the far right as like Trump very little truth will you find. Now the law suit is one way for OAN to try and make some news and they want badly to be on COMCAST. This is just another far right nonsense distraction.
