CNN: You Will Never Find A More Wretched Hive Of Scum And Villainy


cnn reporters arrive.jpg

It seems like CNN has lost the first round of a defamation case in federal court for, get this, peddling fake news:

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.

So, for the purposes of pushing their preferred narrative, CNN just made stuff up. And then they tried to get the suit dismissed. The judge, however, told CNN to go pound sand:

“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.

You can read a complete summary at LawNewz. You can even read (or download) a copy of the 18-page ruling.

This. Is CNN.

Very few acts of desecration of Jewish synagogues during Obama's rein. Sure some.

Suddenly, for some inexplicable reason, the left is breaking, burning, rioting, daily protest marches.

The press wants to know what Trump is going to do about it. In the face of the left 'losing their shit' on a daily basis, it's somehow Trump supporters doing the vandalism, the telephone threats?

On a 12(b) motion to dismiss, the Court is required to assume that the Plaintiff's allegations are true and to give any benefit of the doubt to Plaintiff.

Basically, it's a way to say that even if everything Plaintiff alleges is true, does Plaintiff still state a case? Because if a court gives you every break and you still can't meet your burden of proof, your case should be thrown out.

132 British terror suspect who received a seven-figure payoff after being released from Guantanamo Bay died when he detonated explosives during a suicide bombing in Iraq, according to reports on Tuesday.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack and praised Abu-Zakariya al-Britani, a British suicide bomber, for exploding a vehicle full of explosives near Mosul, where Iraqi forces are battling IS fighters for control of the city.

Why was the FBI investigating Mike Flynn to begin with?

They lay out the reasons for a possible investigation and show there's zero reason for one. So why were they poking into his phone calls?

Maybe for the same reason they gave immunity to the entire Democratic Party then refused to find Hillary even worth indicting?

Maybe?
Or maybe CNN was fishing for any clickbaity headline and found a hospital that's had a few bad runs and decided to tank them for ratings (regardless.)

The lawsuit might get somewhere, but if I read it right, it's the former CEO suing, not the hospital. I suspect, the end result is this hospital will end up closing this division. And parents who need services will be forced to drive hours farther (increasing stress and costs.)

Listen, we'd all love to go to Mayo Clinic, but we can't, it's just not practical. We need places that might not have the exact skill level (but are still capable) in other parts of the country.

222 "Why was the FBI investigating Mike Flynn to begin with? "

My working theory is that the outgoing Obamans were trying to bootstrap "evidence" for the Fake News that Russia hacked our election and that Trump and his people were colluding with the Russians. So the "evidence" that 17 US spy groups concluded that Russia had done hacking was used as an excuse to go spying citing the discredited 1799 Logan Act as the possible violation (civilians "negotiating" with foreign governments), targeting people close to Trump, including Flynn. FISA warrants are issued and then Obama loyalists listened in. Most if not all of this happened before the regime change.

Acting AG Sally Yates has the FBI interview Flynn. Flynn couldn't recall what exactly he said because he didn't think that whatever he said was a big deal when he said it. This is an attempt to catch Flynn in a section 1011 perjury trap (just like Martha Stewart).

Flynn initially tells Trump and Pence that he didn't talk about sanctions, even though maybe he did in passing.

Yates goes to the White House and says Flynn's been compromised and is subject to blackmail. Yates initially doesn't give the WH or Flynn the transcript (not 100% on this, but people have been dancing around it).

Yates has Flynn caught in a lie because he did say something about sanctions. Then she sends the transcript to the WH, putting Trump in an awkward position.

Yates knows she's on her way out anyway, so she uses the Travel Ban EO as the basis to force Trump to fire her, insulating her from exposure because now she'll be a Leftie woman martyr, she thinks.

But now Yates has made Daddy very, very angry.

But it really looks like a lot of "news" places, both MFM and "alternative," were "ready to go" on this one, and simply flooded the zone with exaggerated memes, creating a "new consciousness" that a lot of casual thinkers just accepted as "the way things are."

It's like children and temper tantrums. If you give in once, it's *ten times* harder to get it to stop next time, because for whatever psychological reason (probably a good one in evolutionary terms), that *one* success is more powerful than the next ten failures.

Basically people need to stop overreacting to every damned thing, and I they need to do it consistently for *years*, to even put a dent in the use of the tactic.

I don't know that this is possible in the age of the Social Media Lemming (and yes I know real Lemmings don't commit suicide).

Dunno who wrote that, but just to clarify, Bee's dumb and wrong (not surprisingly) on the Catholic morality issue as well.
Directives 47 and 49 from the ERDs are in full play if the life of the mother is in danger.
(More broadly the prohibition is just against "direct abortion." The language gets a little confusion because catholic morality.)

My guess is she's totally misstating the "Phoenix Case" which was a clusterfuck from top to bottom and would still be a source of huge discussion in the field except everyone is tired of talking about it.
The way the case is battered around in secular circles is basically "she should have aborted from the first sign of trouble."
Which is typical secular bullshit because guess what she was pro-life, so didn't want to do that (they never assume bad things happen to pro-life people...)

299 someone formerly close to Milo willing to come forward and state that Milo raped him as a child.
--------------
New Flash: Joe Stump alleges that Mila Why., then aged 4, raped him. Joe was aged 22 at the time. When Mila was reached for comment, he admitted to the youthful sex act but claimed Joe consented, though Mila admits an aggressive approach to Joe, and said it was so traumatic that he gave up topping forever. "The worst 10 minute stand ever. I regret it deeply."

As is true in much of the US, in various forms, and probably the most common in the world.

315 It's a nice first step, but odds are that the Clown Nose Network will walk away scot-free on this, either later in the current trial process, or at the appellate level, due to an invocation of "standing" or some other pseudo-legal gimcrackery.

Remember what happened to George Zimmerman in his rock solid defamation suit against NBC News for their having chopped up the audio of his call to 9-1-1 to make it sound as though he were racially biased? The luckless Zimmerman was tossed out on his ear.

The black-robed radicals will go to any length necessary required to protect their fellow travellers in the snooze media. Discard principles of long-settled black-letter law? Sure thing! Coming right up!

There was no problem. Either you defend it when it happens to anyone or you can't complain when it happens to the person you support. What am I talking about. This aos. Nothing stops us from complaining.

320 296. Anniversary of the Maidan protests. Not much - monthly salaries are half what they were before the state dept and Soros staged their coup, and national debt is now 70 something percent of GDP, and their government is made up of plutocrats ans foreigners with a substantial neo-nazi presence. But otherwise, everything is awesome there......

Most countries have lower age of consent than the US. Until the last couple of decades, many states in the USA, including those in the south, had much lower age of consent. It's how girls go married off at 14 and 15.
Today, it's at a minimum of 16 in most states, and 18 in some, including, LOL California.

However, there are still states who permit those under the age of 16 to marry if both sets of parents consent to the marriage. Alabama and Utah are examples.

By the way, it's 12 in Mexico.

324 Today, it's at a minimum of 16 in most states, and 18 in some, including, LOL California.

Only CA and FL I think, and in some other states there are age-difference and type-of-relationship conditions that raise it to 18 in some cases.

333 "I think this is backward. I think more correct is: "if you're a public figure, then proving 'actual malice' against you is almost impossibly high."

Nope. Civilians don't need to prove actual malice. Public officials and public figures do.

Posted by: Ignoramus at February 21, 2017 02:32 PM (SIY7D)

---

both of these statements are correct. Sullivan v. NYT established actual malice as the additional and higher bar for "public figures" who sue for libel. Shmoes like me only need to prove the statement(s) were 1) false, 2) caused damage and 3) resulted from reckless disregard for the truth. ... Of course, that's hard enough already.
