A judge ruled to allow his $300 million lawsuit against CNN to proceed to depositions! In case you have forgotten about this case, Alan Dershowitz sues CNN for “making him look insane”, which they achieved by repeating a clip of him repeatedly.
“Following the airing of that clip over and over again, the hosts, together with their panel guests, including CNN employees and paid commentators, exploded into a one-sided and false narrative that Professor Dershowitz believes and argued that as long as the President believes his reelection is in the public interest, that he could do anything at all – including illegal acts – and be immune from impeachment,” he said. “The very notion of that was preposterous and foolish on its face, and that was the point: to falsely paint Professor Dershowitz as a constitutional scholar and intellectual who had lost his mind.”
Cnn’s lawyers claimed the reason why the lawsuit should be dismissed is because of the privileges that the press has – to do fair and honest reports, however, the judge didn’t “buy it”. Prof. Dershowitz stated that though the press has privileges not to be sued on making honest reports, in this particular case, they have misinterpreted what he actually sai- and that is “fake news”.
“They took out the words ‘lawful and illegal’ in order, deliberately, to convey the impression that I thought the president could engage in illegal and unlawful conduct and still not be impeached, exactly the opposite of what I said,” said Dershowitz, who later added that he was looking forward to “deposing the commentators and heads of CNN and of the truth coming out.”
