In a significant legal escalation, the Trump Media & Technology Group, the parent company of the social media platform Truth Social, has filed an unprecedented defamation lawsuit against twenty far-left media outlets. The lawsuit, announced on Monday, targets a series of reports that the company alleges falsely claimed it suffered tens of millions in losses.
The announcement comes as X filed a lawsuit against left-wing Media Matters. The tide is turning.
“Today Truth Social filed a defamation lawsuit that is likely unprecedented in history, incorporating twenty publications—and even more may be added. All of them published the same false information about Truth Social and refused to fully retract their stories. To the Fake News outlets that think themselves above accountability: we’ll see you in court,” the social media company announced on its platform.

The complaint alleges that these media organizations conducted a coordinated campaign to falsely report that Trump Media & Technology Group Corp. had lost $73 million. This figure is a complete fabrication and is not found in any public Securities and Exchange Commission filing by the company.
The complaint asserts that this was a deliberate effort to damage the reputation and financial standing of Trump Media & Technology Group, hinder its access to capital, and negatively impact its anticipated merger with Digital World Acquisition Corporation.
