Oops…She Did it Again: Maddow’s Lies Continue to Pile On; One American News Network Slapped Host, MSNBC With $10M Defamation Suit

  • Herring Networks, Inc., the owner of the right-wing cable news station One America News Network (OANN), has filed a defamation suit against MSNBC host Rachel Maddow.
  • The suit claims that Maddow “maliciously and recklessly smeared the network as a Russian state propaganda outlet.”
  • In an obtained press release, Herring Networks’ attorneys “said they filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit against Maddow, Comcast Corporation, NBC Universal and MSNBC in a California federal court.”
  • The suit details a long list of allegations against and grievances between OANN and Comcast, including an allegation that “Comcast refused to carry the right-wing network because OANN counters the liberal politics of its own channel, MSNBC.”
  • A week after that claim, “OANN’s founder Charles Herring sent an open email to Comcast deriding their alleged anti-competitive censorship.”
  • In response, Maddow defended “her own network’s owners by blasting OANN and telling her own audience” in July “that OANN really, literally is Russian propaganda.”
  • The lawsuit contends “that Maddow–as well as the other named corporate defendants–knew the liberal host’s statement was false and that Maddow acted both maliciously and recklessly when she made it.”
  • The language used in the complaint “mirrors the legal definition of defamation under California statutory and case law.”
  • Attorney Skip Miller said: “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.”

  1. Raving Madcow needs to be working at a hardware store, maybe in the paving stone and cement block department where she doesn’t have to know much. Her opinions are consistently unconnected to reality.
