Skip to comments.OAN to Appeal Judge’s Ruling to Toss Rachel Maddow Defamation Suit [Obama Resistance "judge" rules for her team's Media]

A San Diego federal judge Friday dismissed a $10 million defamation lawsuit filed by the owners and operators of San Diego-based One America News Network against MSNBC and political commentator Rachel Maddow.
Last summer, the liberal host told her viewers that the Trump-friendly conservative network really literally is paid Russian propaganda.
U.S. District Judge Cynthia Bashant dismissed Herring Networks suit with prejudice, ruling there is no set of facts that could support a claim for defamation based on Maddows statement, made during a July 22, 2019, segment of her show.
Robert Herring Sr., the 78-year-old owner and founder of the Trump-friendly network based in San Diego, told Times of San Diego that he would appeal the ruling.
Was he surprised?
After Ive seen several things that [Bashants] said and some of the things shes done in the past, I wasnt surprised at all, Herring said.

A clear lie about OAN is clear defamation - but fanatical partisan Democrat Federal judges never let the facts get in the way of subverting the law in their courtrooms...
We’ll see how much Trump has reshaped the Ninth Circuit...
Is that judge agreeing with Madcow?
An Obama judge. I wonder whose side she is on?
>> MSNBC is Comcast
Malicious telecom is destroying the Country.
This airhead blonde 0bamajudge has obviously never been on Twitter, where the fanatical Lefties and their bluecheck Media mouthpieces take Lyin' Madcow's every utterance as GOSPEL.
I'll check with John Roberts, and get back to ya.
Just remember OAN is going to appeal.
Probably a three-judge panel, and there are Trump judges on there now...
We can hope and Pray.
These judges are way out of control. They answer to no one. It’s ridiculous.
That said, this case seems to me to have merit. It is a flat out statement of fact that is a lie. She can't claim ignorance or mistake. This can't be construed as hyperbole or opinion.
Hopefully the new 9th will reverse this.
So, it’ll play out something like this...
Prosecutor - “Your Honor, the plaintiff was stabbed, shot, ran over twice and then tazzed by the defendant, on video... recorded by 10 separate witnesses and captured by 4 police officer body cameras!”
Judge - “Unfortunately, there’s not enough evidence to substantiate a crime; case dismissed.”
One day, this judge will have to lay prostate before THE JUDGE, and give an account for her abuse of power God gave her, when people went before her seeking justice.

Well, thats obviously not true
I believe she ruled that the average person would not assume Madcow was telling the truth.
Obama weaponized everything he could.
