Last week, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow called One America News (OAN) “Russian propaganda.”

Today, attorneys for OAN have demanded a retraction from Maddow, MSNBC, and the Daily Beast, which wrote the story Maddow based her defamatory conspiracy theory on.

“This is vile, sensationalistic reporting. These defamatory statements must be retracted immediately. One America News Network has no connection to the Russian government or any other government – no connection whatsoever, financial or otherwise,” said OAN’s attorney Skip Miller, a partner at Miller Barondess, LLP.

The CEO of OAN Robert Herring tweeted that, “At 7AM PT today our attorney released retraction demands to Rachel Maddow, Berry Diller and Comcast for their malicious attacks against @OANN. President Trump will love this. I am so proud of our employees and the Real News they produce. #OANN.”

The news of OAN’s demand and the possibility of a lawsuit against MSNBC for spreading Russian collusion conspiracy hoaxes is going viral.

Miller Barondess’s legal notice warns that if MSNBC and Maddow fail to comply by August 15, 2019, OAN’s attorneys “will recommend that our client pursue all legal avenues to protect its interests, including damages and attorneys’ fees and costs incurred as a result of your actions.”
