WikiLeaks ‘suing CNN’ over ex-CIA official’s on-air Assange smear

WikiLeaks ‘suing CNN’ over ex-CIA official’s on-air Assange smear | 04 Jan 2017 | WikiLeaks says it intends to sue CNN after a counter-terrorism analyst for the US cable news channel labeled Julian Assange a ‘pedophile’ on air. In a tweet on Wednesday, the whistle-blowing organization signalled its intention to bring legal action against CNN over the matter, tweeting: “We have issued instructions to sue CNN for defamation.” The WikiLeaks response relates to an appearance by Phil Mudd, a former CIA counter-terrorism official, on a CNN current affairs segment about Assange’s recent interview with Fox News. [Hey, Mudd: In psychology, we call that ‘projection.’]
