    "The owner of right-leaning cable news channel One America News Network (OANN) has filed a defamation lawsuit against Rachel Maddow and others claiming that the 46-year-old liberal commentator “maliciously and recklessly” smeared the network as a Russian state propaganda outlet."

    "In comments obtained by Law&Crime, Miller reiterated the anti-factual nature of Maddow’s Russian jab at the right-wing network."

    “One America is wholly owned, operated and financed by the Herring family in San Diego,” Miller said. “They are as American as apple pie. They are not paid by Russia and have nothing to do with the Russian government. This is a false and malicious libel, and they’re going to answer for it in a court of law.”

    ...
    How disgraceful spreading such blatant lies. And people are expected to TRUST the media? How could they..?

    You're absolutely right. I shouldn't trust right-leaning news sources.

    I'd like to see them prove to a judge how they're "American as apple pie."

    Well they're an American news corporation with no Russian ties. So Maddow is going to have to prove how they're Russian, or MSNBC is going to have to pay out millions. :)

    I've watched OAN a few times. They're pro-America and seem to be well mannered and dignified. Maybe that's why MSNBC wants to paint them as a Russian Troll Network? IDK.

    So if I watch it, I'm going to find them well mannered and dignified?

    I might accept your challenge.

    So the right wing does care about defamation and doesn't label it "free speech" unless it targets certain groups like LGBT people and ethnic minorities.

    Good to know.

    I don't think there's any 'absolute' guideline in regards to right wing thinking. Personally, I support defamation laws as well as keeping physical threats against another’s life illegal. I'm also in support of privacy laws if the spreading of private information infringes on one’s liberties.

    ...I consider myself a free thinker, who tends to vote conservative.

    So, like Rachel Maddow you also wish to discredit OAN.

    Maddow is like Fox's Hannity. They exist as sounding boards for the politically disgruntled. Light entertainment echo chambers.

    People like them for their opinions not news facts.

    I suspect it'd be like CNN suing Trump for calling them fake news.

    Mainstream liberal and conservative media are controlled propaganda programming.
