Default Melania Trump gets revenge over false ‘escort’ story, wins $3 million in lawsuit

Make sure you spell 'Melania' correct on the check, Daily Mail.

Melania Trump gets revenge over false ‘escort’ story, wins $3 million in lawsuit – TheBlaze

Quote:
First lady Melania Trump prevailed in her lawsuit against the Daily Mail for publishing a salacious story she said was completely false. The settlement will reportedly cost the news outlet $2.9 million.

The false story published in August claimed that the former model also worked as an escort. The Daily Mail retracted the story and apologized when she filed lawsuit claiming $150 million in damages.

It is a shame she can't nail the low-lifes that published the piece here and added their malicious comments to the postings.

Another butthurt frivolous lawsuit from the trumps, burdening the legal system and the taxpayers.

She won $3 million.
I wish the outcome had been more between $75 million -> $150 million.

For publications like this, they make money off of such salacious / libelous claims.
And they don't get sued for every single one of them.

People read Daily Mail for this type of crap.
It had an average daily circulation of 1,510,824 copies in November 2016.
Melania's award seems hardly a drop in the bucket to this publication that is routinely hit by libel lawsuits.
I would bet that if somebody went back in time and told them "Printing that story will cost you $3 million", they would run it anyways....

Oh bull! I wonder how you would feel if someone accused your wife or daughter or YOU of being a whore? Because we all know that is what 99% of "escorts" are and is DEFINITELY what all the Trump haters were insinuating.

I read the headlines of such 'rags' while waiting in line to pay for my groceries. Virtually every single one should have their butts sued to Kingdom come.
