Looks like OAN has to pay up. According to a ruling out of California, the far-right news network has been ordered to pay MSNBC host Rachel Maddow nearly $250,000. That figure comes from reported legal fees and more from a failed defamation lawsuit that they failed to prove she actually did anything wrong.
The Huffington Post reports that OAN ‘s Herring Networks originally tried to get Maddow for more than $10m but failed to do so. The claims made by Maddow surrounded the idea that OAN allegedly is part Russian propaganda after one of its reporters was exposed for being a Sputnik reporter.
OAN is also in the midst of its own personal legal problems. Multiple voting machine companies have sued the network over the claims made by on-air personalities that the election was stolen. It is unclear how they are intent on responding to those lawsuits.
