Alan Dershowitz Files $300 Million Lawsuit Against CNN

Renowned criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz accuses CNN of editing his remarks during the Trump impeachment and is seeking a massive $300-million penalty in court.  He said he filed the suit to hold the network accountable. “Shame on them.”   

Dershowitz said he was a regular guest on CNN until they banned him in 2019.

“CNN wouldn’t have me on the air because they want a one-sided presentation, and everybody who watches CNN was shocked by the conclusions. No one who watches me was shocked,” he said.

His lawsuit seeks $250 million in punitive damages and $50 million in compensation, according to The Daily Mail

Dershowitz said during the Senate impeachment trial that “if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected, in the public interest, that cannot be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment.” 

The attorney appeared on the Sean Hannity show earlier this week. 

“What CNN did here, and it pains me to say this because … I have friends over there, what they did is they just totally doctored the tape,” Dershowitz said. “They’re going to have to pay and some good charities are going to benefit from CNN’s willful deliberate malicious effort to destroy my credibility as a constitutional scholar.”

Joe Scarborough: Brian Kilmeade, GOP Pushing Harmful Rhetoric of IRS Agents

“These lies have been spread by Chuck Grassley. By Kevin McCarthy. By top news hosts at Fox News. This is not Infowars. This is mainstream, pro-Trump rhetoric.”

MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough went on a scathing rant Friday morning, claiming Fox News hosts are, in conjunction with top Republicans, pushing dangerous rhetoric about the Internal Revenue Service’s desire to hire 87,000 new agents.

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade, who Scarborough never mentioned by name, last week said during The Brian Kilmeade Show on Fox News Radio an IRS job posting’s insistence that some duties including carrying a firearm and willingness to “use deadly force, if necessary” meant agents would “hunt down and kill middle-class taxpayers that don’t pay enough” calling it “Joe Biden’s new army”.

Scarborough noted Kilmeade’s comments by saying “These are the lies that have been spread not by — this is what’s so disturbing– not by back benchers. These lies have been spread by Chuck Grassley. By Kevin McCarthy. By top news hosts at Fox News. This is not Infowars. This is mainstream, pro-Trump rhetoric. And they are deliberately trying to get Americans to a position of where they’ll do harm to IRS agents.”

Scarborough later reiterated his point by bringing up Kilmeade’s comments once again. It’s the second time this week Scarborough has tangled with a Fox News host, after Tucker Carlson claimed the MSNBC host was “above the law” after the 2001 death of a staffer in his Florida congressional office.

While filling in as a guest host on “The ReidOut,” MSNBC host Tiffany Cross stated on Thursday the United States is already in a “civil war.”

Cross blamed right-wing ming pointed to the response from some conservatives who have responded with anger after last week’s FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago.

“It’s not really rhetoric that we can deal with. I mean, you have millions of people turning into a propaganda network every night,” Cross said, referencing Fox News, per Mediaite

“And then, as if that were not bad enough, that’s an extremist network itself; you have these fringe popup outlets from OAN to Newsmax.”

Furthermore, Cross stated that some believe a Civil War is coming again to the U.S., but the host says it’s already here. 

“People keep saying a civil war is coming,” Cross added. “I would say a civil war is here. And I don’t mean to be hyperbolic. We can look at what has happened in the past week alone since all this has happened.”

“We’ve had two people tried to declare war with FBI field offices. I don’t think at this point we’re all gonna go home and pack up our bags and go home and sing ‘Kumbaya.’”

In a press release obtained by Barret News Media, “Jordan Klepper Fingers the Conspiracy” will join “The Daily Show’s” catalog of podcasts. 

“Jordan Klepper encounters some of the more imaginative, conspiratorial minds America has to offer,” the statement said. 

“In this six-episode limited podcast series, Jordan steps off the trail to dig deep into some of the wildest theories he’s heard and trace their origins with journalists, experts, and anyone who might have a lead on when JFK Jr. is coming back.”

The Comedy Central program’s audio library already includes Hold Up, hosted by correspondent Dulcé Sloan and writer Josh Johnson, and Beyond the Scenes, hosted by Roy Wood Jr., which just began its second season this month.

Klepper’s new podcast doesn’t have a debut date but will be dropping this fall across all major podcast platforms and be produced in partnership with iHeartMedia. 

Last year’s Jordan Klepper “Fingers The Pulse – Into The MAGAverse” is the highest-rated and most-watched Daily Show special on YouTube to date.
