CNN has made up many fake news stories and gotten away with it in the past number of years. They have piled up lie after lie towards President Donald Trump. A reporter of theirs has stated that whites should be eliminated and CNN does nothing to chasten him.
So it is no surprise that a recent scandal involving CNN adds to their fakes news agenda. However a Federal judge has made it known they cannot continue their acts of wrong news and defaming people.
CNN reported that a hospital had high-mortality rates for infants. The result was the hospital CEO was fired amid the controversy that followed. But the former executive did not sit down and let CNN pull this fraud without a fight. The controversy was that CNN stated higher mortality rates on the part of St Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Judge Orinda Evans told CNN that the lawsuit would not be dismissed.
According to Law 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.
“In our case, we contended that CNN essentially made up its own standard in order to conduct an ‘apples to oranges’ comparison to support its false assertion that St. Mary’s mortality rate was 3 times higher than the national average. Accordingly, the case against CNN certainly fits the description of media-created ‘Fake News.’” said Carbone’s attorney L. Lin Wood, in a statement to LawNewz.com.
Cabone lost his job because of the CNN report according to Woods. This affects his ability to find new employment
“False and defamatory accusations against real people have serious consequences. Neither St. Mary’s or Mr. Carbone did anything to deserve being the objects of the heinous accusation that they harmed or put babies and young children at risk for profit,” Wood said.
The judge’s position means CNN better rethink how it reports the news and the facts they try to use as resource.
Liberals have a history of pulling this kind of junk. Fake News is prolific and the left has the corner on the market for its use.
Do you think CNN should be allowed to pull these types of stunts on a regular basis?
