    Defamation Lawsuit Moves Forward - CNN Fake News

    Oh, and I hope they will have to pay plenty.



    ... Judge Evans didn’t mince words in her 18-page order allowing the case to move forward, and dismissing CNN’s attempt to get it thrown out of court.

    ...

    Accordingly, the case against CNN certainly fits the description of media-created ‘Fake News.'” said Carbone’s attorney L. Lin Wood, in a statement to LawNewz.com.

    Wood says that as a result of CNN’s story Carbone lost his job and it became extremely difficult for him to find new employment in the field of hospital administration.

    “False and defamatory accusations against real people have serious consequences. Neither St. Mary’s or Mr. Carbone did anything to deserve being the objects of the heinous accusation that they harmed or put babies and young children at risk for profit,” Wood said.

    On Wednesday, Federal District Judge Orinda Evans ruled that the case could move forward, even ruling that she found that CNN may have acted with “actual malice” with the report — a standard necessary to prove a defamation claim.

    “The Court finds these allegations sufficient to establish that CNN was acting recklessly with regard to the accuracy of its report, i.e., with ‘actual malice,” the order reads. CNN had tried to get the case dismissed.

    typical

    file lawsuit- defendant discusses with lawyers to attempt a lowball settlement offer- plaintiff rejects- defendant files motion for dismissal- judge reviews to make sure all is in order and refuses thus allowing plaintiff their day in court- defendant ultimately settles with plaintiff and case doesn't make it to court

    the details will never see the light of day as the plaintiff will sign an NDA and CNN will continue the slanderous/libelous garbage that it tries to call "news"

    You know you look like an instant idiot when the only response you ever have in any threads are personal attacks.

    Most people get their news from ABC, NBC and CBS broadcast news, I notice you left those numbers out of your little list...hell, the Today Show has a significant news segment that gets 4.8 million viewers daily. Al Roker is more popular than O'Reilly, put that in your pipe and smoke it.

    It's funny, the hacks try to claim good ratings means its good news, but it just shows how their viewers seek out the bullshit and don't care about facts. While everybody else goes to multiple sources, they stick to their propaganda. Fox news has been outed time and time again to not be news, some people from the network even claimed they are entertainment, not news. Yes, the entire planet is liberally biased except this one network. Seriously, these people are so far beyond any help or reasoning. Hopefully we can stop other idiots from being brainwashed
