I am going to publish your name, your editor's name and the name of the top person of your organization, Sumner Redstone, with the words falsity and megalomania. You reported false information about the history of my country, the United States of America and I am not putting up with it.

You falsely wrote, "Fox's Vittert pressed Price on his use of the private charter plans, particularly since HHS is cutting programs from its budget, and Price, when he was a congressman, slammed then-House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi for using a private plane to travel."

Pelosi was never Majority Leader. Who is your editor?

Reply to this message today. Do nothing else until you do so, and make sure that no items appear under your name until then. I am sick and tired of false information.

In the first sentence of an article, you published, "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer are holding a press conference shortly after President Trump announced a deal to reopen the federal government." #falsity

CBS News. (2019, January 25). Pelosi, Schumer speak after Trump announces shutdown deal. Retrieved January 26, 2019, from https://wdef.com/2019/01/25/pelosi-schumer-speak-after-trump-announces-shutdown-deal/

That is not true. Schumer has never been Majority Leader. Who is your contact at CBS News?

Your website is still false, Mr. Terry. It says that Senator Schumer is Majority Leader. He is not. The false statement is a syndicated error originating with CBS News. #syndicatederror

WDEF-TV, Chatanooga false information

I have not heard from you, the news director. I left voicemail messages for you, your general manager and your chief engineer. I called your newsroom and nobody answered.

You published

"'The credit score is a fundamental building block to achieve financial milestones,' [financial startup Petal Card, Inc. CEO Jason] Gross added. 'We're seeing them used in employment applications, housing applications as well as credit. And the system, as currently constituted, does not serve people equally.'"

CBS News. (2018, October 23). New FICO score: Millennials could be big winners. Retrieved from https://wdef.com/2018/10/23/new-fico-score-millennials-could-be-big-winners/ #syndicatederror

However, a representative of Transunion, a consumer reporting agency that compiles and maintains files on consumers on a nationwide basis, testified, "Now, credit scores aren't used in employment decisions so let's get that straight."

Experian, another such agency states, "Employers never get credit scores."

Equifax, yet another such agency told me, "We do not knowingly provide scores for pre employment screening."

Equifax reply

Falsity remains. What are you doing about that?
