Bongino Sues “Digital Assassin” Daily Beast For $15M

Fox News reports:

Secret Service agent-turned-conservative pundit Dan Bongino filed a $15 million defamation lawsuit against The Daily Beast on Tuesday for acting with “actual malice and reckless disregard for the truth” by reporting he was dropped by NRATV. “I have been in an ongoing battle for a long time now with fake news media people that just report blatantly false things about me. It gets old, folks, really old. It’s been personally exhausting,” Bongino said Tuesday on his podcast.

“It’s not a crybaby snowflake thing, it’s my fight. We all have our own fights, but The Daily Beast, a while back, wrote a story about me,” Bongino explained. “They wrote a story about me that was patently false.” The complaint, obtained by Fox News, was filed in the Southern District of Florida. The complaint calls the Beast a “digital assassin owned and controlled by billionaire Clinton-devotees, Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg.”
