    Maddow Meltdown: In Defense To OAN Lawsuit, Host Argues Her Words Are Not Facts

    According to Culttture, her lawyers argued in a recent motion that "…the liberal host was clearly offering up her ‘own unique expression’ of her views to capture what she saw as the ‘ridiculous’ nature of the undisputed facts. Her comment, therefore, is a quintessential statement ‘of rhetorical hyperbole, incapable of being proved true or false."

    Oh, it's capable of being proved false, alright. Maddow had previously claimed, on air, about one of OAN's reporters: “In this case, the most obsequiously pro-Trump right wing news outlet in America is really literally is paid Russian propaganda,” and added, “Their on-air politics reporter (Kristian Rouz) is paid by the Russian government to produce propaganda for that government.”


    I'm surprised this made it to court but I enjoy the opportunity to have Maddow defend herself by claiming that her words are simply BS.
