MSM Flagrantly Incompetent
Denny Hastert has been libeled by ABC. Having been called on it, you would think the natural reaction would be to pull the story and offer a retraction (a regular gimmick by the MSM, probably a quick 5 second soundbite). Not ABC News, no SIR! They republished the erroneous story, and now Speaker Hastert is laying the smack down via his counsel:
This statement is false, and your republication of it after actual knowledge of its falsity constitutes libel and defamation. ABC News’ continued publication of this false information, after having actual knowledge of its falsity, evidences a specific and malicious intent to injure and damage Speaker Hastert’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.
Remember, it's not the evidence, it's the seriousness of the charge!
