In a statement posted to their website, Salem Media Group, Inc. apologized specifically to Mark Andrews, a voter from Georgia falsely depicted illegally voting in “2,000 Mules.”

According to a court filing in a related case, Salem settled the lawsuit brought by Andrews for an undisclosed “significant” amount. In the statement on its website, Salem wrote, “It was never our intent that the publication of the ‘2000 Mules’ film and book would harm Mr. Andrews. We apologize for the hurt the inclusion of Mr. Andrews’ image in the movie, book, and promotional materials have caused Mr. Andrews and his family.”

Salem said that it “relied on representations made to us by Dinesh D’Souza and True the Vote.”

D’Souza and True the Vote did not immediately respond to NPR’s request for comment.

Trump now trying to claim he never said “lock her up”, that it was just his supporters saying that.

Hell, he was still chanting that at rallies while he was campaigning against Biden. If The Daily Show doesn’t whip up a montage I’ll be shocked.

The media exec was accused of running a “sprawling, transnational scheme” and managing a “Make Money Online” team to use “cryptocurrency to knowingly purchase tens of millions of dollars in crime proceeds, including proceeds of fraudulently obtained unemployment insurance benefits, that had been loaded onto tens of thousands of prepaid debit cards.”

Epoch Times, the Falun Gong-backed newspaper, has published a number of articles containing vaccine misinformation. The Epoch Times spent millions of dollars in advertising to boost former President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign and following his loss to President Joe Biden, the outlet amplified Trump’s lies that the election had been stolen.

The company was banned by Facebook in 2019 after NBC News published a report that The Epoch Times obscured its connection to ads promoting Trump and conspiracy theories about his political enemies on the platform.

The charges were filed against attorneys Kenneth Chesebro, 62, and Jim Troupis, 70, and former Trump aide Mike Roman, 51, who allegedly delivered Wisconsin’s fake elector paperwork to a Pennsylvania congressman’s staffer in order to get them to then-Vice President Mike Pence on Jan. 6, 2021.

All three are due in Dane County Circuit Court on Sept. 19, according to court records. They each face one felony count punishable by up to six years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.

I don’t know what’s more amazing: The subject of the video, or the fact that Ted Koppel is still working at age 84.

Addendum: I don’t find this paragraph from his Wikipedia entry amazing; in fact, I’m bloody aghast!

He was a longtime friend of Henry Kissinger. Both of them moved to the United States as children. Along with former Secretary of State Alexander Haig, Kissinger was the most frequent guest on Nightline .[16] In an interview in 1989, Koppel commented, “Henry Kissinger is, plain and simply, the best secretary of state we have had in 20, maybe 30 years – certainly one of the two or three great secretaries of state of our century,” and added, “I’m proud to be a friend of Henry Kissinger. He is an extraordinary man. This country has lost a lot by not having him in a position of influence and authority”.[43]

In a follow-up post, a Facebook user also named Michael Anderson whose profile picture appears to be the same used in the original post, suggested the post was made ironically, calling himself a “professional s**tposter,” multiple outlets reported. That user also belongs to a Facebook group of Trump supporters, The Washington Post reported.

Of course Fox and the whole right-wing political sphere is claiming this is reason for a mistrial.

It’s certainly not unlikely that he will win

People in other countries are not bound by the American liberal convention that we shouldn’t talk about it because it’s bad for morale :disappointed:
