CNN Exposed in Court for “Reckless” Reporting “With Actual Malice”
This article has been updated for precision: the judge’s order states that the case is sufficient to establish that CNN was reporting recklessly with actual malice. The attorney states CNN aired “false and defamatory news reports.” One can read the order directly, from which the relevant portion below is taken.
$30M lawsuit against CNN upheld by judge, according to reports.
It’s official: CNN was just exposed in court for acting recklessly, with malice, after the attorney for a CEO of a hospital stated that the news network intentionally promulgated false and defamatory reports.
Davide Carbone, former CEO of St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, filed a defamation lawsuit against CNN after they aired what he claims were a “series of false and defamatory news reports” regarding the infant mortality rate at the hospital. CNN’s report said the mortality rate was three times the national average. However, Mr. Carbone contends that CNN “intentionally” manipulated statistics to bolster their report. He also claims that CNN purposely ignored information that would look favorable to the hospital in order to sensationalize the story.
Carbone’s attorney stated that CNN “made up its own standard” to support false claims in its report.
“In our case, we contended that CNN essentially made up its own standard in order to conduct an ‘apples to oranges’ comparison to support its false assertion that St. Mary’s mortality rate was 3 times higher than the national average. 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.
That CNN spreads fake news is obvious to many people, regardless of whether they are liberal or conservative. In the past CNN has propagandized for the illegal war of aggression against Iraq, which led to deaths.
Even Michael Moore has confessed in the past that he wishes people would just shut off CNN because of its “crap” reporting, asserting that they have a poor track record.
“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.
“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.
