OAN Sues MSNBC For $10M After Maddow Claims They Have Paid Kremlin Staffer Pushing Propaganda

That sounds a bit extreme but as a journalist, you have a code of ethics you have to follow, and Maddow tells some whoppers of stories.

One America News (OAN) is not running away from MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s attempt to smear and defame their product.

They are suing Maddow, the MSNBC network, Comcast Corporation, and NBC Universal. The lawsuit alleges that Maddow “maliciously and recklessly” suggesting that one of its staffers is a Russian agent for the Kremlin and that they are a Russian state propaganda outlet.

The complaint reads, according to Law and Crime.

One America News Network (OANN) filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit Monday against MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.

OANN is suing Maddow, MSNBC, Comcast Corporation and NBC Universal for defamation, alleging Maddow “maliciously and recklessly” went after the network by suggesting it is a Russian state propaganda outlet, the complaint reads, according to Law and Crime. Maddow said that OANN “really, literally is Russian propaganda” on “The Rachel Maddow Show” in July.

Maddow’s comment was based on The Daily Beast article stating OANN’s Kristian Rouz is a “Russian national on the payroll of the Kremlin’s official propaganda outlet, Sputnik.” OANN demanded retraction from The Daily Beast reporter and Maddow on July 29. [Daily Caller]

OAN Reporter Rouz has responded to Maddow’s claims:

That sounds a bit extreme but as a journalist, you have a code of ethics you have to follow, and Maddow tells some whoppers of stories. She runs her show on political emotions, not facts and when you attempt to destroy someone on lies, you need to be held accountable! I don’t know if she has any viewers left but she could be without a show next year!

Its time that news people are held to the standard of being honest and researching the evidence and then telling the truth. None of which the so-called mainstream media is doing. They are solely interested in destroying any and all conservatives.

MSNBC isn’t known for truthful reporting. Sounds like it finally caught up with them. Body language — if you speak with your fingers spread apart you are either exaggerating or outright lying. See the video below, and don’t even get me started on her “blink rate.”

If OAN is referred to as a “right-wing” news outlet shouldn’t MSNBC also be referred to as a “left-wing” news outlet? Don’t they both do the exact same thing only for opposite parties/philosophies? It’s hard to win libel suits and OAN probably won’t win this one, but one thing that’s clear is our media is completely agenda-driven, and that’s bad for the state of our republic.
