Davide Carbone, former CEO of St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, filed a defamation lawsuit against CNN after they aired what he claims were a “series of false and defamatory news reports” regarding the infant mortality rate at the hospital. CNN’s report said the mortality rate was three times the national average. However, Mr. Carbone contends that CNN “intentionally” manipulated statistics to bolster their report. He also claims that CNN purposely ignored information that would look favorable to the hospital in order to sensationalize the story.

“In our case, we contended that CNN essentially made up its own standard in order to conduct an ‘apples to oranges’ comparison to support its false assertion that St. Mary’s mortality rate was 3 times higher than the national average. Accordingly, the case against CNN certainly fits the description of media-created ‘Fake News.'” said Carbone’s attorney L. Lin Wood, in a statement to LawNewz.com.

Wood says that as a result of CNN’s story Carbone lost his job and it became extremely difficult for him to find new employment in the field of hospital administration.

“False and defamatory accusations against real people have serious consequences. Neither St. Mary’s or Mr. Carbone did anything to deserve being the objects of the heinous accusation that they harmed or put babies and young children at risk for profit,” Wood said.

On Wednesday, Federal District Judge Orinda Evans ruled that the case could move forward, even ruling that she found that CNN may have acted with “actual malice” with the report — a standard necessary to prove a defamation claim.

“The Court finds these allegations sufficient to establish that CNN was acting recklessly with regard to the accuracy of its report, i.e., with ‘actual malice,” the order reads. CNN had tried to get the case dismissed.

We’ve reach out to CNN for comment, and will update this story accordingly.

Btw, sorry if the thread title is strangely worded, it was hard to fit the pertinent information in the thread title.

And when the hospital loses, they should pay for CNN's legal bills, as well as any defamation damages.

You're right it isn't, I never said it was. I said the trial is going forward, and the judge stated that there's enough there to consider that CNN reported with actual malice.

In other words, it wasn't by mistake and he believes they may have knowingly or intentionally caused harm to the hospital with their reporting.

So I guess trump really was guilty of fraud when the judge said a trial could move forward... thats an interesting interpretation of how the courts and legal system works you have there.

It was also super interesting when you trumptards tried to peddle this story the first time two weeks ago and got brutally slapped down.
