Again you are confusing what the media wants to be true and the actual truth:
Hastert Legal Letter To ABCNEWS President Westin
7 West 66th St.
New York, NY 10023
RE: False Story Regarding Justice Department Investigation
Dear Mr. Westin, Stephanopoulos, and Mr. Ross:
At 7:25 p.m., the Statement of the Department of Justice confirmed:
â€śSpeaker Hastert is not under investigation by the Justice Department.â€ť
At 10:21 p.m., you wrote:
â€śWhether they like it or not, members of Congress, including Hastert, are under investigation,â€ť one federal official said tonight.â€ť
This statement is false, and your republication of it after actual knowledge of its falsity constitutes libel and defamation. ABC Newsâ€™ continued publication of this false information, after having actual knowledge of its falsity, evidences a specific and malicious intent to injure and damage Speaker Hastertâ€™s reputation by continued repetition of a known falsehood.
We will take any and all actions necessary to rectify the harm ABC has caused and to hold those at ABC responsible for their conduct.
Please advise regarding who will accept service of process to remedy this intentional falsehood.
Very truly yours,
J. Randolph Evans
Stefan C. Passantino
Counsel to Speaker J. Dennis Hastert
Perhaps Dan Rather moved to ABC?
