Breaking: Trump Sues CNN For Defamation, Seeks $475 Million In Damages



According to a Florida court filing on Monday, former President Donald Trump has sued CNN. He is claiming defamation and seeking punitive damages of $475 million.

A suit filed in federal court in Fort Lauderdale revealed that CNN has tainted Trump’s image. The U.S. cable news station reportedly did so by using “ever-more scandalous” labels to describe him in broadcasts. The labels included “racist,” “Russian lackey,” and “insurrectionist.”

The filing stated that beyond simply highlighting any “negative information about the plaintiff and ignoring all positive information about him,” CNN has sought to use its influence to defame the plaintiff in the minds of its viewers and readers. It was allegedly done for the “purpose of defeating him politically”, as reported by Bloomberg.

In the 29-page lawsuit, Trump, a Republican, claimed that CNN had a long track record of criticizing him. But the network had ramped up its attacks in recent months as it feared that he would run again for President in 2024, reported The Guardian. The lawsuit said that as a part of its concerted effort to tilt the political balance to the left, “CNN has tried to taint the plaintiff.”

The suit listed several instances in which CNN seemed to compare Trump to Adolf Hitler. It included a January 2022 special report by host Fareed Zakaria. It carried footage of the 20th-century German dictator.

The lawsuit also claimed that “The Big Lie” has been used in reference to Trump more than 7,700 times on the network since last January. It’s a phrase with Nazi connotations, reported the AP News. It is said that new CNN chief Chris Licht privately urged his news personnel in a meeting more than three months ago to refrain from using the phrase.

Trump suggested in a statement on Monday that similar lawsuits would be filed against other news organizations. He also said that he might bring “appropriate action” against the panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol by his supporters.

The latest lawsuit comes as Trump is weighing a potential bid for the presidency in 2024. In 2020, Trump lost a re-election effort to Democrat Joe Biden, and has not said officially whether he would seek re-election. But he has dropped many hints.

Breaking: Arsenal suffer Thomas Partey injury worry ahead of crucial Leeds United clash



Thomas Partey will fly back to Arsenal having missed Ghana’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Angola on Monday due to injury.

Ghana manager Chris Houghton confirmed Partey, who remained an unused substitute during the 1-1 draw, was deemed too much of a risk to play during his post-match press conference.

“Thomas has some small injury issues,” Houghton said. “We felt it was too big a risk to start him.”

Arsenal are expecting Partey back at London Colney on Tuesday where they will assess the midfielder, who was accompanied to Ghana by Gunners physio Simon Murphy, ahead of this weekend’s home game with Leeds.

The former Atletico Madrid star felt something in his right leg during a training session with his country on Sunday. Sources close to the player insist it is not a hamstring issue and believe he should be fine for Saturday’s game at Emirates Stadium.

Houghton is understood to have taken the decision to leave Partey out on his own. There was no outside pressure from Arsenal, despite the presence of Murphy.

The Gunners medical team will make a decision later in the week on whether the 29-year-old can feature against Leeds. Arsenal travel to Liverpool the following weekend for a huge game at Anfield as they chase their first Premier League title since 2004.

Should Partey miss out this Saturday, Jorginho would most likely be the man to come in and replace him in midfield.

“The defendant couldn’t give an explanation as to what he was doing with all the stolen items he was found with at about 2 am on the date he was arrested.
