NYC Business Owner Sues Fox News Hosts Bill O’Reilly and Greta Van Susteren

A New York City business owner is suing Fox News hosts Bill O’Reilly and Greta Van Susteren, as well as reporter Juliet Huddy on defamation charges. The woman is Aviva Nash, and her business is Drum Cafe, which is a team building company, with a heavy emphasis on, not surprisingly, drumming. She believes that segments on Fox News about government agencies using her services defamed her business.

The Hollywood Reporter‘s Eriq Gardner has more:

Nash believes that as the result of the show, she has been fingered for perpetrating a “con,” that her business enterprise has been implicated in illegal activity.

As for Van Susteren, on her own show, the host said, “It is so unbelievably insane to take the taxpayer money to do something like that.”

Nash says calling her insane is false. Also, Van Susteren allegedly responded to one of her guests by saying, “When you say blatant abuse, I say stealing.”

Nash says the mention of “stealing” indicated that she was engaged in a criminal enterprise.

Fox News says it couldn’t comment because it hasn’t been served yet with the complaint. Silly stuff? You bet.
