CNN has already been discredited in the court of public opinion, but that is not enough for Julian Assange. The WikiLeaks founder apparently has the network over a barrel. He is threatening to file a lawsuit for defamation if CNN doesn’t air a one-hour exposé of a sinister plot that it apparently engineered against Assange and WikiLeaks. The plot may have to do with CNN’s attempt to paint Assange as a pedophile.

The WikiLeaker, who helped give the one-time cable news leader a black eye during the presidential race, by revealing among other things that then-CNN commentator Donna Brazile gave Hillary Clinton questions before a debate that was to be moderated by CNN, has given the network 48 hours to comply.

CNN’s liberal bias has been on full display for a long time. Its typical reporting on conservative points ov view and public figures have amounted to hit pieces, such as when host Christiane Amanpour’s called for marginalizing global warming skeptics — this during her acceptance of a press freedom award.

If Assange does sue, it won’t be the first time CNN has found itself headed to court since the election. In early December, the network was been slapped with a multi-million dollar class action lawsuit alleging racism. The suit, ironically, was filed by its own black employees.
