CNN Apologizes When Wikileaks Threatens Defamation Suit Over “Pedophile” Comment | Deadline

Wed Jan 04 10:06:52 EST 2017 | Deadline
CNN has apologized for a segment on New Day this morning in which a commentator described Wikileaks founder Julian Assange as a “pedophile who lives in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.” Apology came after Wikileaks tweeted a threat to sue CNN for defamation over the segment, unless, within 48 hours, it air a one-hour “expose of the plot.” All this, the morning after Fox News Channel aired Sean Hannity’s interview with Assange about Wikileaks’ release of hacked DNC emails.
