A Trump administration official has had enough abuse from the mainstream media, and is now suing CNN and five named reporters for the network for $50 million in damages for defamation.
Kash Patel, Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller’s chief of staff, alleges that the news network put forward “unfounded left-wing political narratives” about him.
Defamatory statements the suit alleged were made about Patel were the following: “Trump loyalist connected to Biden conspiracy theories is leading Pentagon transition;” “Kash Patel, a Trump loyalist, … was connected to efforts to spread conspiracy theories about Joe Biden;” Patel “has also worked to discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election,” and others.
The complaint also says that the reason CNN allegedly defamed Patel is that the network “was deeply invested in promoting the Russia collusion hoax and the fraudulent ‘dossier’ manufactured by Fusion GPS.”
Maybe this will be the first step to taming a media that has become rabid when it comes to Republicans and conservatives.
