Trump Calls CNN on the Carpet, Will Force ‘Big Lie’ Retraction or It Should Ready Its Lawyers – Opinion

Donald Trump may sue CNN The letter, which was published Wednesday, confirms that it is indeed true.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, leadership of the former president’s Save America initiative shared a notice of intent online.

The letter — dated July 21st — gives CNN 10 days to publicly retract its claims that Trump is a liar via the network’s references to the “Big Lie” and “lying” in relation to his Election 2020 challenges.

From the document — addressed to CNN headquarters, network Executive Vice President David Vigilante, and CEO Chris Licht:

[T]his letter serves as formal notice of the false statements about President Donald J. Trump (“President Trump”) in numerous articles and televised transmissions published by Cable News Network, Inc. (“CNN”) including, but not limited to, those discussed below. …

[C]NN must correct, apologize, or retract the matter in the same issues or corresponding publications in which they appeared. It should also publish the correction in the same place or type of broadcast or transcript within ten (10) days after the service of this notice. CNN will file a lawsuit against you if it fails to correct, apologize, or retract the matter within ten (10) days of receiving this notice.

“In November 2016,” the missive recalls, “Americans participated in a spirited presidential election, pitting Hillary Rodham Clinton against President Trump. President Trump earned 306 electoral college votes compared to Clinton’s 227.”

Following that result, the letter notes, “various members of the Democratic party gave numerous televised statements claiming the 2016 election was illegitimate.” Additionally involved: “suggestions about Russian interference causing President Trump to win the election and regular referrals to President Trump being an ‘illegitimate’ President.”

The letter observes that CNN allowed, “largely unchallenged,” such assertions by “Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Jimmy Carter, Jerry Nadler, John Lewis, Dianne Feinstein, Marcia Fudge, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.”

Yet, following 2020’s November 3rd election — held on a Tuesday — “by the following weekend,” CNN “was already asserting that, ‘The President falsely claimed the election was being stolen from him as many mail-in ballots, which were often counted after Election Day votes, landed in the column of his opponent.’”

CNN’s reporting, both before the election as well as after the election, consistently fed a narrative that denounced President Trump’s legitimacy and competency.

The letter goes on to recount CNN’s generosity:

Reportedly, the term “Big Lie” has been uttered in the context of President Trump’s belief, more than 7,700 times on CNN since January of 2021.

It also offers the Webster’s Dictionary definition of “lie,” which is “an assertion of something known or believed by the speaker to be untrue with intent to deceive.”

Trump’s statement is relayed by The Examiner:

“I have notified CNN of my intent to file a lawsuit over their repeated defamatory statements against me. Other media outlets that have defamed and defrauded me regarding overwhelming evidence of fraud during the 2020 Election will be subject to legal action. I will never stop fighting for the truth and for the future of our Country!”

How will it all end? Concerning claims against the Right, outlets such as CNN and MSNBC certainly don’t appear to possess a sense of restraint. These two and their guests are awash with it. suggested black candidate Larry Elder was a white supremacist, Trump supporters were in a “nihilistic death cult;” and Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation may usher in a “thousand-year reich.”

As for the election, CNN definitely hasn’t dinged Hillary for insisting she was robbed. And in the arena of “Trump is a liar” rhetoric, it shows no signs of stopping. Trump is not the exception.
