But please, CNN – tell us more about how honest and impartial you are. Sheesh, even the legal system isn’t buying your crap anymore.

According to this, the former CEO of St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Davide Carbone, sued CNN after they reported a story that made the hospital look bad. Carbone’s case claimed that CNN manipulated certain statistics to make it look like the hospital had an infant mortality rate “three times the national average” –
“In our case, we contended that CNN essentially made up its own standard in order to conduct an ‘apples to oranges’ comparison to support its false assertion that St. Mary’s mortality rate was 3 times higher than the national average. Accordingly, the case against CNN certainly fits the description of media-created ‘Fake News.’” said Carbone’s attorney L. Lin Wood, in a statement to
Wood says that as a result of CNN’s story Carbone lost his job and it became extremely difficult for him to find new employment in the field of hospital administration.
“False and defamatory accusations against real people have serious consequences. Neither St. Mary’s or Mr. Carbone did anything to deserve being the objects of the heinous accusation that they harmed or put babies and young children at risk for profit,” Wood said.
