    Like a Black Widow spider, infotainment sensation Megyn Kelly has advanced both her personal and career life sniffing out testosterone and then feeding off male prey. Prior to her meteoric rise to fame, Megyn was married to an anesthesiologist named David Kendall. Mr. Kendall said that on the day the couple married, the priest counseled Megyn on the importance of ‘taking care of her husband.’ Megyn responded to the advice by asking, "What about him taking care of his wife?" The ambitious celebrity enhanced her résumé, transforming from a rookie news anchor into a self-impressed show boater with the same...

    JERUSALEM – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, have won a defamation lawsuit against an Israeli journalist over a Facebook post he wrote claiming that the first lady had booted the premier out of the car in an official convoy after a heated argument. On Sunday, an Israeli magistrates court ordered the journalist, Igal Sarna, to pay the Israeli leader and his wife $28,300 for writing the post. The judge ruled that the post, at least in part, was “malicious and ugly, intended to humiliate and shame the plaintiffs.” Sarna, who works for popular Israeli daily Yediot...

    Last Thursday, I gave a lecture on the jihad threat at the Grand Hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland. Shortly thereafter, a young Icelandic Leftist registered his disapproval of what I said by poisoning me. It happened after the event, when my security chief, the organizers of the event, and Jihad Watch writer Christine Williams, who had also been invited to speak, went with me to a local restaurant to celebrate the success of the evening.  At this crowded Reykjavik establishment, I was quickly recognized. A young Icelander called me by name, shook my hand, and said he was a big fan....

    <p>Tinder, the hook-up app known for spawning one-night stands and regret-filled lives, apparently has a line that goes too far--and it has nothing to do with creepy, vulgar pick-up lines.</p> <p>A viral Facebook post details the story of “Nick,” a 24-year-old who allegedly exchanged numbers with a young woman on the app. According to the story, when the woman did not respond quickly enough, Nick responded by allegedly calling her a racial slur, along with calling her a "c*nt."</p>

    Once again, CNN is back in the headlines as a fake news outlet.  This time, it comes from a federal judge, who did not refer to CNN as a complete fake news media corporation, but did say they that they were "acting recklessly with regard to the accuracy of its report, i.e., with ‘actual malice'."  The ruling from the judge allows the case to move forward and shoots down CNN pleading that the case be dismissed. Law News reports: Those who accuse CNN and other mainstream media outlets of “fake news” will probably revel in a recent decision by a federal...

    DALLAS – Daily Wire Editor-In-Chief Ben Shapiro did nothing wrong in questioning the motives of Ahmed “Clock Boy” Mohamed, a Muslim student who was detained by police after building a “clock” that resembled a bomb, a Texas court ruled.

    At the moment, media outlets want nothing to do with BuzzFeed, the “news” website that published unverified, “fake” allegations against Donald Trump. The allegations are so flimsy that even Trump’s political opponents never used them. What few know is that BuzzFeed founder Jonah Peretti has a history of knowingly spreading false information. He has used fraudulent websites and email accounts to pretend to be people he wished to defame. I was one of his victims.

    Celebrity attorney Gloria Allred has filed a defamation lawsuit against President-elect Trump on behalf of Summer Zervos, a former contestant on “The Apprentice.” Zervos is one of several women who came forward with accusations of sexual harassment late last year. From NBC News: The suit, filed Tuesday morning, claims Trump knew his statements about Zervos and his other accusers would subject them to “threats of violence, economic harm and reputational damage.”…“Ms. Zervos is willing to dismiss her lawsuit if he will retract his false statements about her and acknowledge that what Summer said about Mr. Trump and his alleged...

    The long, drawn out battles surround the Freddie Gray trials in Baltimore may seem like a distant memory at this point. Much of daily life in the city has returned to normal, even though the murder rate stayed stubbornly high at 318 for last year. (Shockingly, that’s still down from the 344 they rang up the year before, but far higher than 2014’s level of 211, which was far more typical of the past decade.) With all the trials against the police officers involved in Gray’s arrest and subsequent death having failed or been dismissed, the dust has largely...

    Moments ago, Wikileaks tweeted that as a result of a segment airing on CNN, the whiste-blowing organization announced it has "issued instructions to sue CNN for defamation." As indication of the "plot line", Wikileaks provides a link to the following McClatchy article, which lays out "the strange tale of a dating site’s attacks on WikiLeaks founder Assange" which writes the following: For an online dating site, toddandclare.com seems really good at cloak-and-dagger stuff. Disconnected phones. Mystery websites. Actions that ricochet around the globe.

    One of the websites The Washington Post labeled “fake news” in a November story demanded a retraction and threatened the paper with a defamation lawsuit in a demand letter Sunday. A lawyer for Naked Capitalism accuses WaPo of running a debunked list of “fake news” sites in the “sensational” story compiled by a dubious team of researchers, without substantiating their claims or giving Naked Capitalism a chance to respond to the allegation. The Washington Post’s actions constitute defamation, the lawyer writes in the letter published Monday. “You did not provide even a single example of ‘fake news’ allegedly distributed or...

    CHARLOTTESVILLE — A federal court jury decided Friday that a Rolling Stone journalist defamed a former University of Virginia associate dean in a 2014 magazine article about sexual assault on campus that included a debunked account of a fraternity gang rape. The 10 member jury concluded that the Rolling Stone reporter, Sabrina Rubin Erdely, was responsible for defamation, with actual malice, in the case brought by Nicole Eramo, a U-Va. administrator who oversaw sexual violence cases at the time of the article’s publication. The jury also found the magazine and its publisher responsible for defaming Eramo. The $7.5 million lawsuit...

    I’d thought we might have heard the last of the Katie Couric infomercial posing as an examination of gun rights issues. After all, there was public outrage aplenty and even Couric herself finally admitted that the editing of the piece “might have been misleading.” (Really? You think so?) But the group which was the victim of the insulting and misleading editing, the Virginia Citizens Defense League, is bringing the GunGate story back into the news this week. Our colleagues at Bearing Arms have obtained documents confirming that the group is seeking to take Couric to court over the slanderous piece...

    According to NBC News, a judge has rejected Rolling Stone‘s request to throw out a defamation case brought by the accused students in the now-debunked University of Virginia rape case. In a statement made on Thursday, a circuit court judge in Charlottesville, Virginia, held that Rolling Stone magazine’s article on an alleged gang rape at the University of Virginia could reasonably be considered defamatory. This followed a request by the magazine’s attorney for the court to dismiss the case.

    Charles Harder, an attorney for Trump, said in an email that the legal action goes beyond just the Daily Mail and is not limited to the United Kingdom, where the Daily Mail is headquartered. "Mrs. Trump has placed several news organizations on notice of her legal claims against them, including Daily Mail among others, for making false and defamatory statements about her supposedly having been an “escort” in the 1990s," Harder said in an email. "All such statements are 100% false, highly damaging to her reputation, and personally hurtful. She understands that news media have certain leeway in a presidential...

    NEW YORK--Three University of Virginia graduates on Wednesday filed a defamation lawsuit in New York against Rolling Stone magazine, its publisher Wenner Media and a journalist over a now-debunked 2014 article describing a fraternity gang rape. The three men, all 2013 graduates and members of Phi Kappa Psi, the fraternity at the center of the story, claim the magazine was negligent in publishing an article entitled "A Rape on Campus" by Sabrina Rudin Erdely. They are seeking damages for defamation and infliction of emotional distress. Rolling Stone apologized in December for "discrepancies" in the account, after the story sparked a...
