CNN Egregious Act Against Attorney Alan Dershowitz
Alan Dershowitz sues CNN for $300 million
9-16-20, NYPost -- Attorney Alan Dershowitz has filed in U.S. District Court in So District of Florida a $300 million defamation lawsuit against CNN over its editing of comments he made during Pres Trump’s impeachment trial in Jan 2020.
It said that CNN’s treatment of Dershowitz stemmed from one fact: “Professor Dershowitz appears to have made one mistake. He chose to defend the President of the United States and defend the U.S. Constitution at a moment in time where CNN has decided that doing so is not permitted. For this, CNN set out to punish him and destroy his credibility and reputation and unfortunately succeeded.”
Dershowitz lawsuit also said: “[N]o panel guest would have even considered embarrassing himself or herself on national television with their false conclusions had the video clip properly included the part where =>
<= Professor Dershowitz unequivocally and unambiguously stated that an illegal act would prevent a quid pro quo from being lawful. The phrase that included the word ‘illegal’ was an essential part of his argument, and that is precisely why CNN decided to omit it. It is evident that the decision to omit the portion in question was no accident or simple negligence on the part of CNN.”
Dershowitz said: “What CNN did here, and it pains me to say this because, you know, I have friends over there, what they did is they just totally doctored the tape. If they had just showed the part where I said, ‘If he does anything illegal he can be impeached,’ but they doctored the tape to take that out.”
CNN recently settled a $275 million lawsuit filed by then-Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann over its reporting of an incident involving Sandmann that took place during the 2019 March for Life when the network reported falsely how Nick and the aggressor with the drum in his face interacted.
