RICHMOND, Va. – Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax is suing the CBS TV network over its interviews with two women who’ve accused him of sexual assault.

Fairfax is bringing a defamation suit against the broadcasting company and is seeking $400 million in damages. He is acting on his own, not on behalf of the commonwealth.

According to court documents, Fairfax says the company “published, promoted, and amplified” the allegations, which he claims are false, to boost the network’s image in light of its own sex scandals.

“That CBS chose to air these false claims of sexual assault is not surprising. Since 2017, CBS had been publicly excoriated with its own #MeToo scandals involving several high ranking figures at the network, including CBS This Morning Co-Anchor Charlie Rose, former CBS News Chairman and former Executive Producer of 60 Minutes Jeff Fager and former CBS CEO Les Moonves.”
The complaint goes on to allege that Gayle King and her CBS This Morning team “intentionally failed to investigate leads … that would have place the truthfulness of Watson’s and Tyson’s stories in doubt. It goes on to say that King deliberately didn’t challenge Watson during the on-air interview.
