Dealing with “False Statements”

This is how it’s done:

Britain’s Telegraph newspaper has apologized and paid damages to U.S. First Lady Melania Trump after publishing an article it says contains many false statements.

The newspaper said Saturday it apologizes “unreservedly” to Mrs. Trump and her family for any embarrassment caused by the content of a cover story published Jan. 19 in the newspaper’s weekly magazine supplement.

“As a mark of our regret we have agreed to pay Mrs. Trump substantial damages as well as her legal costs,” The Telegraph said. The newspaper did not disclose the size of the settlement with Mrs. Trump.

This is the First Lady’s second win over “fake news,” albeit in the UK, where libel and defamation laws are stricter than they are here in the U.S., where “public figures” have a much higher bar to leap.  In a previous case, Mrs. Trump

received damages and an apology from the Daily Mail in 2017 after bringing a libel action against the popular tabloid.

The First Lady also chalked up a win on this side of the Pond, when she

settled her defamation lawsuit against a blogger in Maryland who wrote on claims that she once worked as an escort.

A spokesman for the first lady’s attorney, Charles Harder, said that the lawsuit was settled for a “substantial sum.”

How many false statements” were printed in the latest, now memory-holed, story? (If anyone has a link to an archived version of the disappeared story, we’d love to read it.)

A quick count shows that The Telegraph apologized for at least 10 completely false statements about our First Lady. Ten!

What sort of journalistic integrity do they practice? Upon what source did they base their “facts?”

One article about the fiasco states that the source of the “false statements” was a Nina Burleigh:

Ms. Burleigh already attained journalistic immortality of a sort by offering to perform oral sex on Bill Clinton in return for keeping abortion available.

Sounds like a reliable source.

Kudos to our lovely First Lady for having the guts to take on these “false statements.” Let’s hope that her success gives courage to the falsely maligned students from Covington Catholic High School.

Lies and slander on social media and in the “news” will not cease until it becomes more costly for those making the “false statements” to pay reparations for indulging their biases (or for making “mistakes”) than it is for them to glory in the adulation of fellow partisans.

The Catholic students, private citizens, have hired a powerful team of lawyers to take on the “hundreds of celebrities and journalists who defamed” them.

Good luck to them, and way to go, Mrs. Trump.

    • You have to ask yourself WTF is going on? Look at this: https://www.teaparty.org/roger-stone-names-cnn-journalist-suspects-tipped-network-off-raid-344857/

      “Stone also discussed the effect the raid has had on his family, particularly his wife.

      “She’s traumatized, as you might expect,” Stone said of the raid. “She’s not guilty of any crime, but she was rousted from the house. She’s not allowed to use her cell phone all day. She’s not allowed to even go in the bathroom without be watched. She cannot go to the bathroom without being observed. Yet she’s not accused of any crime. Seems to me to be a violation of her Fourth Amendment rights.”

      “They took her computers,” Stone continued. “They took her electronic devices. This is an extraordinarily police-state oriented overreach, but I think it’s backfired very badly on Robert Mueller and the deep state.” …”

      Tell me: HOW is this even possible? This woman wasn’t accused of anything. Why is SHE being surveilled? It sounds as if she’s under house arrest. WTF?!! They took HER property? How can they do that? Doesn’t a warrant have to be specific and name the exact items to be seized? How can a warrant be issued to seize HER electronic devices? SHE didn’t lie to Congress, as her husband is alleged to have done.

    • Sickos. The world’s full of them. Really, though. Is this a surprise? They’ve devalued babies’ lives already. We have DemoncRATS wanting to allow doctors and mothers to decide to just let a living child die IF the mother wants to be rid of the child. Sick. Evil. Criminal. Satanic.

  8. …ha’ HE SAID ….S H E SAID! … …..SWEET is it NOT? …MEN! ha’
    Payback for Roy Moore is soooooooooooo sweet…

    Incredible. First a Democrat Governor. Now a Democrat Lt Governor. And the accuser is a Black woman. According to the “New” Hillary & all the
    … “non-Racist” Democrats? This woman should be believed!

    Well she’s a Woman-we have to Believe HER Right? That’s what
    the Dems said about >>>Christine Blasey-Ford.

    Looks like the Virginia governor’s mansion needs an enema to rid itself of these t@rds.

    It only works one way for the dems..their way. They don’t care about hypocrisy. They will Ignore this & move on like nothing happened.
    Nothing to see here.

    Believe the woman!

    In any case, she is the one that decides whether it is consensual, & she
    can change her mind at a later date. Only a fool does NOT know that.

    Tyson, a Professor’ … & a Black woman, Should at least go before an investigation committee & a #2 OF ME FUND to Pay for an attorney’s fees. This is a … “what goes around comes around” moment !!

    Where’s Jeff flake when you need him. Investigate, investi—gat–e

    Fairfax screwed, & now he is screwed. Consensual or not is in the eye of
    the screwee. In any case you are a Fornicator, & should not be in the
    Lt. Gov. position.

    • Oh, there’s a good point. We’ve been told to always believe the woman. In this case, she’s a woman of color but nobody believes her when it’s expedient to support the privileged black male.

    • Don’t forget that Mel Carnahan, a governor of MO, was exposed by a picture of himself in black face while running for the Senate. Nevertheless, he kept his job and even, believe it or not, WON the seat after he was dead from a plane crash. Yes. And his wife ended up being seated in Congress, instead. Democrats are different. When it comes to them, there’s no equality under the law or policies or even mob decisions. ONLY Republicans are held to the finest letter of the law and political correctness. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mel_Carnahan

  9. YEP .. O’ an Infidel basher? …. TELL US how 2 ACT??? REALLY

    • Too many of these disgusting progressives CLAIM to be Catholic. They’re not. But the gutless bishops say nothing, being therefore complicit in the potential infanticide.

  11. O’ BABY …. BABY ….^^^^^ sure NANCY…
    Planned Parenthood spent over $38 Million in 2016 Supporting Hillary Clinton & Pro-Abortion Democrats. At least that is the amount publicly disclosed. Like the unions & other supposed non-profit organizations, Planned Parenthood is a money-laundering operation for Democrats.

    Abortion is profitable. Aborted babies contain organs, stem cells, & other valuable tissue that can be sold to research companies; organ procurement organizations; & who knows whom else, as Planned Parenthood doesn’t talk much about this – unless its staffers are caught on an undercover video.

    • Conveniently, no photos or videos. Oh, the museum doesn’t allow them. But do they confiscate phones? Another case where we’re supposed to believe that people with cell phones saw her but didn’t photograph her, a famous woman, at a concert ABOUT her, who was noticed eventually but nobody thought to take her photo. This was after the concert and she had to have walked out, so why didn’t someone wait outside to grab a shot of her and a 15 minutes of fame for themselves? It stinks to high heaven. Of course, then, she ought to be at SOTU speech tonight, but WaPo has already “explained” her absence by claiming she skips it when it’s a Republican POTUS. Now there’s a glorious example for you of the non-partisan, unbiased, RBG. WTF? They act as if this is normal and acceptable for a progressive judge to boycott a conservative POTUS and insult all his voters, the Congress, and the American people.

    • They’ve been covering this up for years. Who truly believes that nobody went back before now to look at his yearbooks or that he himself never saw it, as he speciously claims? He supposedly doesn’t remember being in blackface or donning a KKK robe? One would think he’d remember. I would.

  13. ……. border WALL …. of walls …
    If Trump starts in the Fifth Circuit, opponents can delay the project. But
    they cannot stop it. The sooner we start, the sooner we will get it finished.

  14. Virginia Lt. Governor Claims Sex Assault Charges Against Him Come from Racist Virginia Governor…

    In the last week Virginia politics went from Sad, to Weird, to flat-out Bizarre. The current Governor, Ralph Northam, has been outlined as a racist supporter of infanticide and everyone is calling for him to step down. Today, the current black Lieutenant Governor, Justin Fairfax, who would replace Northam, is credibly accused of sexual assault…. & in response he claims the Racist Baby-Killing governor IS the Source of the Assault Allegations.

    • The alleged victim herself is the one who reported this, AGAIN, after years. Supposedly WaPo knew about it but sat on the story for years because, unlike with Republicans like Roy Moore, they expected to have corroborating evidence or other victims, which they claim they looked for but couldn’t find.
