Far-right network OAN retracts false story about Michael Cohen affair with Stormy Daniels

·1 min

The far-right cable network One America News retracted a story and apologized after falsely claiming that former President Donald Trump’s ex-lawyer had an affair with an adult film star and used it to extort the Trump Organization. Both individuals are key witnesses against Trump in his ongoing New York state criminal trial. Trump denies the affair and has pleaded not guilty to falsifying business records. The retraction included a public apology to Cohen and the removal of the story from OAN’s website and social media accounts. OAN settled a defamation lawsuit with a voting technology company accused of rigging the 2020 election.
