Let’s hope so. The fake news media is absolutely out of control. They should not be allowed to character assassinate good people with whom they disagree. The purveyors of fake news must be held accountable for their actions.
‘Apologies are not enough’ — Eric Trump says he will sue MSNBC over Lawrence O’Donnell report
The Blaze, August 28th, 2019:
Eric Trump said Wednesday that his company would sue over a supposed bombshell reported by Lawrence O’Donnell on his MSNBC show on Tuesday evening.
“This was a reckless attempt to slander our family and smear a great company,” Trump tweeted. “Apologies are not enough when the true intent was solely to damage and cause harm.”
This was a reckless attempt to slander our family and smear a great company. Apologies are not enough when the true intent was solely to damage and cause harm. As a company, we will be taking legal action. This unethical behavior has to stop. @Lawrence @MSNBC https://t.co/i4X6CcdkCm

“As a company, we will be taking legal action. This unethical behavior has to stop,” he added.
He was referring to the apology O’Donnell issued after the report.
“Last night I made an error in judgment by reporting an item about the president’s finances that didn’t go through our rigorous verification and standards process,” O’Donnell tweeted.
“I shouldn’t have reported it and I was wrong to discuss it on the air,” he added. “I will address the issue on my show tonight.”
What did O’Donnell say?
O’Donnell had reported that one source had confirmed from the president’s taxes that he had received business funding through guarantees from Russian oligarchs. Journalists generally do not report claims based on only one source.
