Trump Sues CNN for Alleged Defamation

From a story on by Shawna Chen headlined “Trump sues CNN for alleged defamation”:

Former President Trump sued CNN on Monday for alleged defamation and is seeking at least $475 million in damages.

Why it matters: Trump has had a contentious relationship with the press, especially CNN, during his time as a candidate and elected official and has bashed news organizations as “fake news” and “enemy of the people.”

What he’s saying: The complaint, which was filed in a U.S. District Court in Florida, claims CNN has tried to taint Trump using defamatory language as part of a “concerted effort to tilt the political balance to the Left.”
