One America News Network filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit against Rachel Maddow and MSNBC in California’s southern district Monday.

The complaint alleges that the dispute began a week after OAN president Charles Herring “called out and objected to Comcast’s anti-competitive censorship in an email to Comcast’s President of Content Acquisition,” according to a press release from the network. It then alleges that shortly after that Maddow opened her show by saying OAN “really, literally is paid Russian propaganda.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Back in July, Maddow pushed a story published by the Daily Beast that alleged Kristian Rouz, an OAN political reporter, has simultaneously been writing for Sputnik, a Kremlin-owned news outlet that helped Russia interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

A lawyer for OAN reportedly stated, “One America is wholly owned, operated and financed by the Herring family in San Diego. They are as American as apple pie. They are not paid by Russia and have nothing to do with the Russian government. This is a false and malicious libel, and they’re going to answer for it in a court of law.”
