ABC/Disney Co. Settles $1.9 Billion BPI Defamation Lawsuit – “Pink Slime” Case…

Stunning win for Beef Products Inc (BPI) in a $1.9 billion defamation lawsuit against ABC news (Disney Co.)

The civil trial began June 5th and ABC legal executives must have see the writing on the wall as the initial $1.9 billion in damages could have potentially tripled under South Dakota law (treble damages) to $5.7 billion if they allowed the three week trial to continue.

The actual defamation settlement is undisclosed.  However, at the point of settlement all reasonable assumptions must be that BPI was well positioned to win far more than the initially demanded settlement amount of $1.9 billion.

(Reuters) – The U.S. ABC television network, owned by Walt Disney Co <DIS.N>, has settled its closely watched defamation lawsuit with Beef Products Inc over news reports on a processed beef product that critics dubbed “pink slime,” both companies said on Wednesday.

Terms of the settlement, which also covered the Beef Products Inc (BPI) claims against ABC reporter Jim Avila, were not disclosed.

Privately-held BPI had claimed that the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) and Avila defamed the company by calling its processed beef product “pink slime” and making errors and omissions in a series of 2012 reports. BPI calls the product “lean finely textured beef.”

BPI attorney Dan Webb told Reuters the settlement came together “quickly this week,” but declined to provide details, citing a confidentiality agreement signed by both parties.

The settlement came 3-1/2 weeks after the trial in the case got under way in Elk Point, South Dakota, around 25 miles (40 km) northwest of Sioux City, Iowa. BPI is based in nearby Dakota Dunes, South Dakota.  (read more)

The ramifications of this $1.9+ Billion defamation lawsuit victory will extend far beyond the media settlement in this case and will surely send a massive shock-wave through every media enterprise engaged in investigative and opinion journalism.

      Cattlemen Lose Food Slander
      Case Against Oprah Winfrey
      & Howard Lyman

      Houston Chronicle
      Sept. 17, 2002, 9:29PM

      Judge dismisses 6-year-old suit against Oprah over beef
      Associated Press

      After six years, escalating legal fees and a celebrated trial in the heart
      of Texas cattle country, a federal judge has dismissed a lingering lawsuit
      that accused Oprah Winfrey of maligning the beef industry.

      U.S. District Judge Mary Lou Robinson threw out “all claims and causes of
      action asserted or that could have been asserted” by Cactus Feeding Club
      Inc. and against Winfrey, her production company and vegetarian activist
      Howard Lyman.

      The lawsuit was similar to the one that went to trial in Robinson’s court in
      January 1998, causing Winfrey to move her popular talk show to Amarillo for
      several episodes and creating a carnival-like atmosphere in the Texas
      Panhandle city for six weeks.

      The 138 livestock owners sued Winfrey in Dumas, a town of 13,000 about 45
      miles north of Amarillo. But the case was quickly removed back to Robinson’s
      federal court, over the objections of plaintiff’s attorney Kevin Isern, and
      has sat there for four years.

      “It was kind of a soft landing to a hard trial,” said Chip Babcock, a
      top-gun First Amendment attorney who represented Winfrey in the case.

      The cattlemen have contended Lyman violated Texas’ “veggie libel” law during
      an April 1996 edition of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” by saying U.S. beef could
      be at risk of spreading mad cow disease.

      The incurable illness, blamed for several deaths in England, had not been
      detected in U.S. herds before the show or in the 6 1/2 years since.

      In the weeks after the show, already slumping cattle prices dropped to
      10-year lows. Cactus Feeders Inc. owner Paul Engler, who was behind both
      lawsuits, unsuccessfully appealed the verdict to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court
      of Appeals.

      Babcock said his side expects to recover $85,000 in court costs, but
      otherwise Robinson ruled each side must cover its own expenses in her order
      dated Aug. 27.

          Sadly, it was my experience while working in Hollywood that money doesn’t work either. They kept right on making movies no one went to and TV shows no one watched because they were and are protected by giant global corporations. I think the entire MSM is what is often referred to as a “loss leader”; you pay more than you ever hope to make for the rights to something because it’s like a vanity license plate for your company.

          As long as the global corporations control the various MSM franchises via lobbyists at the FCC, no competition stands a chance. Sorry to be such a downer. Luckily, the internet is changing all that, shifting power away from the giant corporations.

            It’s time for a knowledgeable Treeper to weigh in on how corporations set up

            • Well, you DO have to actually make money before you can write off any expenses or losses. And the lost opportunity costs (the money you spent could have been spent on a moneymaker, thus making you even more money, even with taxes) can be substantial, too.

              It amazes me how many otherwise intelligent people don’t get that. The only benefit you get from losing money and taking a deduction from it, is if you would have spent the money anyway for the satisfaction you got. I do this with charitable deductions. Then, it is like making the taxpayers/government pay for my pleasure. The money is gone, but the govt didn’t get it! Yay!

    It’s too easy for these media outlets to ‘issue a retraction’…and then skip away unscathed.
    The damage is done.

    If they put a false story on their front page, then the ‘correction’ should be put in the same place!

    They usually try to hide their ‘correction’…as far from notice as possible.
    As much as I hate proposing new laws, I would welcome some sort of law or regulation about this particular injustice.

    They should have to go into as much detail in their retraction of a false story, as they did in the false story.
    But they don’t.
    It’s usually just a few little lines in the retraction…when the false story was half a page long.

    And a retraction shouldn’t immunize them from getting sued, either.
    Their lies cause damage.
    There should be consequences.

    This is a good time to mention again, for those who are still financing the enemy, that you only need to lessen your consumption of media, especially paid media like going to the movies, to make a yuge difference. It’s not possible for a lot of people to give up certain media for a lot of reasons, like family wants cable, etc.

    A 25% drop in media consumption is good. A 50% drop is better. A 75% drop is fabulous.

    If you see two movies a month try seeing only one movie a month.

    Try dropping your television viewing by 25%. 50% would be better.

    For television shows that will be rerun later in the season, watch them in reruns since the ad rates will be lower and they will make less money off your viewing.

    Read news article summaries online.

    Watch which websites you click. No reason to click on a NY Slimes link, Washington Compost link, or a CNN news link when you can get excerpts from places like Free Republic, or Once a story gets published online, other friendly outlets report the gist or add more of their own reporting.

    Take a walk with your spouse to get them away from the television. No need to tell them that. Just know that there will be two less people watching the idiot box for a half an hour/hour and you get to do something actually productive and meaningful for your life and relationship.

    You won’t miss much and you get the benefit of knowing that you are fighting back against the media.

    ‘Pink slime:’ Combo of connective tissue, scraps hidden in your kids’ lunch’

    Fast-food chains like McDonald’s and Taco Bell have recently dropped the ‘pink slime’ from their beef – but schools across the country are still serving it.

    The term ‘pink slime’ was first coined in 2002 by Food Safety Inspection Service microbiologist Gerald Zirnstein, who toured a Beef Products Inc. production facility. Zirnstein later emailed his colleagues and told them he did not “consider the stuff to be ground beef,” according to the online news site.

    Pink slime is a mix of ground-up connective tissue and beef scraps that are normally meant for DOG FOOD. BPI’s Lean Beef Trimmings are then treated with ammonia hydroxide to kill salmonella and E. coli, and mixed into ground beef or hamburger.

    “We originally called it soylent pink,” Carl Custer, another microbiologist with the Food Safety Inspection Service, told The Daily. “We looked at the product, and we objected to it because it used connective tissue instead of muscle. It was simply not nutritionally equivalent (to ground beef).

    My main objection was that it was not meat.”


    In my view, the site photo does appear to show disgusting pink slime dog food masquerading as beef.

    Would a wealthy conservative please, please, please buy a national daily newspaper and turn it Trump nationalist so that I can read the sports scores, the weather report, business news, and unbiased national and international news with my morning coffee, and light my fireplace or barbeque with it in the evening. There must still be a few hard-drinking beat reporters around somewhere with little paper notebooks and pencils who still know how to get and write a story properly that they could hire.

    It would be nice to read print stories about President Trump’s daily meetings with world leaders and American businessmen and union leaders, stories about what President Trump really did yesterday, how it fits with T-Rex’s and Wilberine’s actions and meetings, and how the Trump agenda (the American agenda) was advanced and where, instead of non-sourced gossip and outright lies about how Trump is through mixed with snotty remarks about his family. And don’t point me to the WSJ. They have a globalist slant that caused me to stop reading them several years ago just to lower my blood pressure.

    So, anyone? Anyone figured out how to make a profit with a national, American nationalist, print daily?

    Morning Memo
    Determination is a Steely-Eyed Dog
    March 21, 2016


    YOUNG ONE: “Master, does success go to the clever one, or to the lucky one?”

    MERLYN: “Success is sometimes discovered by the clever one, and occasionally by the lucky one, but it is most often laid hold of by the determined one.”

    YOUNG ONE: “Will you teach me to be determined?”

    MERLYN: “Determination is dangerous… relentless… remorseless… and inescapable. It returns to its master with treasure between its teeth.”

    YOUNG ONE: “Is Determination a dog? Shall I summon it with a whistle?”

    MERLYN: “The whistle is a four-note tune that comes at a high price.”

    YOUNG ONE: “Teach me the notes. I will pay.”

    MERLYN: “Everyone wants to be a beast, until it’s time to do what real beasts do.”

    YOUNG ONE: “Teach me the notes.”

    MERLYN: “As you wish.”

    This is what the old wizard taught me:

    NOTE ONE: Count the cost.

    MERLYN: “Consider everything that might go wrong. Is your goal worth enough that you would endure all this discomfort and pain? If the answer is yes, then make peace with those possibilities and you will be bulletproof. No matter what happens, you will not panic. You will have already been there in your mind.”

    NOTE TWO: Throw your cap over the wall.

    MERLYN: “A group of boys walk a pathway next to a high stone wall that surrounds the estate of a nobleman. The older boys challenge each other to climb the wall, but none of them can do it. The youngest boy then takes off his cap and tosses it over the wall. Confused, the other boys watch as he quickly climbs the wall. Upon his return, he looks at them and says, ‘I was not going home without that cap.’”

    NOTE THREE: Employ Exponential Little Bits.

    MERLYN: “Ask yourself at every meal, ‘What difference have I made today?’ Do not let your head touch your pillow until you have taken an action that moves you a Little Bit closer to your goal, no matter how tiny that action might be. Exponential Little Bits are relentless activities that compound to make a miracle. When daily progress meets with progress, it doesn’t add, it multiplies.”

    NOTE FOUR: Be an observer, a simple witness to what happens.

    MERLYN: “You are responsible for your actions, not for the outcome. To be effective, you must be objective. Become a tool in the hand of the goal itself. Eliminate your ego. Do not seek recognition. It isn’t about you. It’s about the thing you’re doing. Are you willing to pay this price? Can you whistle the notes that summon the dog?”

    YOUNG ONE: “You said the dog returns to its master with treasure between its teeth.”

    MERLYN: “Yes.”

    YOUNG ONE: “I see blood on that treasure.”

    MERLYN: “Yes.”

    YOUNG ONE: “And the blood is my own.”

    MERLYN: “You are ready to whistle the notes.”

  43. This gives us all hope that the MSM can be attacked through the courts. Fake News has to be stopped and these amounts should make them think twice before they go to print.


  44. Pardon my language, but THIS pisses me off to no end!!!! BPI is notorious for bringing in Mexicans to work in ALL of their slaughter houses. Madison, NE, where my Mom lives, is a shyte-hole now thanks to them.


  45. That is why I buy my 100% grass fed beef (never buy pork) from a local farmer. Costs more, tastes better, and I eat less, so the cost comes out the same as the cheaper beef. The beef is killed right in the pasture where he grew up, he never suffers trauma and fear, so no bad hormones or adrenaline. The meat is butchered and frozen by a nearby packing house.

    Doesn’t get any better than this! Oh, and my fish is bought right off the boat on the Pacific Ocean about two hours drive away from the store where I buy it.
