Well, it looks like Maddow's big mouth has finally gotten her and her fake news network in trouble. She lied about OAN and they have sued her for $10 million. Unless Maddow can prove that OAN is a Russian news organization, she's likely going to lose money and found with egg all over her face.



Conservative network files $10M defamation lawsuit against MSNBC and Rachel Maddow


One America News Network filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit against Rachel Maddow and MSNBC in California's southern district Monday.

Back in July, Maddow pushed a story published by the Daily Beast that alleged Kristian Rouz, an OAN political reporter, has simultaneously been writing for Sputnik, a Kremlin-owned news outlet that helped Russia interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

OAN is represented by Skip Miller, a partner at Miller Barondess, LLP, and he said in regards to the lawsuit, “One America is wholly owned, operated and financed by the Herring family in San Diego. They are as American as apple pie. They are not paid by Russia and have nothing to do with the Russian government. This is a false and malicious libel, and they’re going to answer for it in a court of law.”

“The lawsuit includes a statement from Kristian Rouz that said he wrote some 1,300 articles over the past 4 ½ years for Sputnik but “’I have never written propaganda, disinformation, or unverified information.’”

“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.


OANN sues Maddow because its "Paid Russian Propaganda" was written by ...a paid Russian propagandist

Why MSNBC and not the Daily Beast since they reported it first? Maybe because it's just a ploy to get more publicity.OAN does not address if Kristian Rouz has simultaneously been writing for Sputnik, why not? Oh yeah, because it's true, she did write for Sputnik. Case dismissed.

Maybe, OAN should sue the Daily Beast, too, but Maddow made these unfounded accusations on air.

And, unless you have proof that Rouz was writing for Sputnik, then by all means let's see it?

Good. Go after all the liars, not just the ones on your "other" side.

From Wkipedia

OANN is known for downplaying threats posed to the United States by Russia. According to a former OANN producer, on his first day at OANN he was told, "Yeah, we like Russia here."[18][53] One of OANN's reporters, Kristian Brunovich Rouz, simultaneously works for the Russian propaganda outlet Sputnik; when Rouz runs segments on OANN that relate to Russia, OANN does not disclose that he also works for a Russian state-owned media.[54]

yep!
