Default 12 BILLION lawsuit filed against MAJOR NEWS OUTLETS/PERSONALITIES of same outlets....

For calling him a "FELON"...



“Some of the defendants in this case are massive media companies… and a large punitive damage award is necessary to adequately punish and/or deter these Defendants from repeating this conduct,” the document states.

The lengthy list of outlets targeted by Blankenship is nonpartisan. CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, the Associated Press, the Boston Globe, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post are all listed alongside Breitbart News, the Washington Times, and the Washington Examiner‘s parent company Clarity Media.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano, MSNBC host Chris Hayes, Fox News host Neil Cavuto, MSNBC host Joy Reid, and Washington Post White House reporter Josh Dawsey are among the media figures named in the lawsuit.

The case’s defendants are not limited to the mainstream media, as pundits from far-right news sites the Daily Caller and Breitbart News are also named. Additionally, GOP operatives, like former Bush adviser Bradley Blakeman and the NRSC’s executive director Kevin McLaughlin, were listed for their purported false “felon” accusations.

A good example of the deep state swamp rats colluding with the libbies. I hope he wins big.
I/we made a mistake doesn't cut it and an apology is way too little too late.

I don't think anyone can get billions of dollars by playing semantics. The article says he served a year. As far as I am aware serving one full year behind bars qualifies people to be treated as felons for all legal purposes. For example, after 365 days a person would no longer be eligible to buy a firearm.

"While Blankenship, the former CEO of Massey Energy, spent a year in federal prison after a misdemeanor conviction for conspiring to violate safety regulations prior to a deadly mining disaster in 2010, he was acquitted of all felony charges.

Only safety regulations.

Good thing he didn't lie to an FBI agent. He could have been doing big time hard time for that kind of OMG violation.

He was convicted of a misdemeanor not a felony. Technically he's correct but you have a point about the semantics of it all

New cash cow for the trial lawyers. Probably settle out of court for a few mill to go away.

If a person is sentenced with deferred adjudication for a criminal charge,even a felony, once he completes the probation, he can legally answer either in a job interview or on a job application- NO on the question of have you ever been convicted of a felony.
