Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, September 09, 2019

The owner of right-leaning cable news channel One America News Network (OANN) has filed a defamation lawsuit against Rachel Maddow and others claiming that the 46-year-old liberal commentator "maliciously and recklessly" smeared the network as a Russian state propaganda outlet. In a press release obtained by Law&Crime, attorneys for OANN's owner Herrring Networks, Inc. said they filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit against Maddow, Comcast Corporation, NBC Universal and MSNBC in a California federal court.

The Russian propaganda meme had a good run.

Onan (sic)News Network, Trump's happy self-gratification station, is going after Maddow and the Daily Beast.

They'll lose. They shouldn't have gotten in bed with the Russians by hiring "reporters" that are tied directly to and paid by Russia.
"(M)aliciously and recklessly" in this case and the Daily Beast case means "accurate and truthfully reported."

Nice write-up here:

Given Fat Nixon's predilection for their drivel I'd say she is pretty spot on in her assessment.

This very much reminds me of the Michael Mann (purveyor of the garbage "hockey-stick AGW graph") lawsuit against Mark Steyn and NRO.

It's a near perfect equivalence. To this day, the NRO/Steyn lawsuit has yet to be settled and it's been going on for years.
