CNN ‘Not Aware’ of Arwa Damon Lawsuit

arwa damonA CNN spokesperson tells TVNewser the network is “not aware” of a lawsuit over senior international correspondent Arwa Damon allegedly biting two paramedics “in a drunken rage” at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad last month.

The lawsuit was first reported by TMZ, which says Damon and CNN are being sued for $1 million by two EMTs who claim they suffered injuries after Damon became “seriously intoxicated” and “unruly and violent” at the Embassy. The lawsuit claims “CNN knew Damon had a history of becoming drunk and abusive, and had a penchant for violence, even when sober,” according to TMZ.

A CNN spokesperson tells TVNewser:  “We are not aware of the alleged lawsuit and therefore have no comment.”

>Update, 2:04 p.m.: “We are aware of the lawsuit and are looking into it,” a CNN spokesperson says.

The New York Post reports Damon apologized for her behavior in an email to U.S. Embassy staff a day after the incident and said she was “beyond embarrassed”:

She said in an e-mail: “It’s been an extremely stressful time, I was exhausted, I had not had proper food all day and clearly miscalculated how my body would handle the alcohol consumed … Needless to say, I am utterly mortified and take full responsibility for my actions, which are inexcusable.” Read more

Bill O’Reilly on ‘Obama Basher,’ ‘Liberals,’ and ‘Anti-Obama Situation’ at Fox News

Bill O’Reilly went up and down the Fox News talent roster last night at New York City’s 92nd Street Y, offering his take on his colleague’s views on President Obama.

“You have Doocy, who’s an Obama basher,” O’Reilly told colleague Geraldo Rivera, who interviewed him. “Then you’re into Shepard Smith, who’s a liberal” (he also labeled Greta Van Susteren liberal). And on the cast of “The Five”: “They don’t like the president so much, but then you have Beckel [Bob] there, and he’s there to stick up for him. It’s not real fair, so I’d say that’s an anti-Obama situation.” O’Reilly credits colleagues Bill Hemmer, Martha MacCallum, Jon Scott, Jenna Lee, Bret Baier, and Megyn Kelly as anchors who lack agendas and aren’t ideologues. And his self-evaluation: “I’m tough on everybody.”

Cable News Networks’ Memorial Day Specials

memorialday304The cable news networks will air a slew of specials this Memorial Day Weekend.

Megyn Kelly‘s “Kelly File” investigation into the VA Scandal airs at 9pmET tomorrow night. Kelly speaks with veterans and military experts about VA problems dating back to 2008.

Then at 10pmET, Greta Van Susteren hosts “Fox News Reporting: D-Day +70 Secrets Revealed.” Van Susteren reveals secrets behind the Normandy invasion and sheds light on Britain’s attempt to trick Adolph Hitler.

Tonight at 10pmET, Geraldo Rivera hosts “O.J. Simpson At 20.”. He’ll have an exclusive interview with Kato Kaelin, who lived in Simpson’s guest house at the time of Nicole Brown Simpson‘s murder and testified at Simpson’s murder trial. Rivera will also look back at top moments from the so-called trial of the century.

MSNBC will also have special coverage of the VA scandal. Former congressman and Iraq War veteran Patrick Murphy will host “Taking the Hill” at 1pmET Sunday; he’ll interview former Senator and Vietnam War veteran Max Cleland on the latest developments in the VA controversy. In the same hour, MSNBC will air the seventh installment of “Wounded: The Battle Back Home.”

Geraldo Rivera Wins Suit, Rips ‘Under-Handed, Back-Stabbing, Bullying’ Agents

geraldo_rivera_mi_130201_mainA New York judge has thrown out a lawsuit William Morris Endeavor Entertainment had filed against Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera last September.

WME sued Rivera for 10% of the anchor’s Fox News salary, which it originally negotiated. Rivera stopped paying the agency in 2010 when his longtime agent, Jim Griffin, left WME. Rivera countered, claiming his contract was with Griffin, and not William Morris.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Charles Ramos agreed with Rivera, saying WME only had a verbal agreement with him which can’t be enforced. Rivera reacted to his victory via Twitter.

Rivera is surely happy to keep his money. With four ex-wives and five children, he recently said he’s addicted to paying his bills.

The Ticker: Rivera, Champion, Kuhn

  • Sam Champion‘s Weather Channel show isn’t being called “Your Morning Champion,” because, as Champion puts it, “the cheese factor would be so intensly high that I wouldn’t want to do it.” “AMHQ,” as it’s called, launches Monday at 7am.

  • Eric Kuhn, the former head of social media for CNN and UTA is part of the team for start-up “Layer3 TV.” Lost Remote reports the as-yet launched network has received $21 million in funding and has assembled a management team of tech and cable veterans.
