Turning Point USA Concerns ABC News Has Been Told to Stop Making 'defamatory Claims' on 'The View'

On Tuesday, Turning Point USA sent a strongly worded cease and desist letter to Disney-owned ABC News, demanding that the network "retract the defamatory statements" made on "The View" earlier this week or face legal action. 

The letter, obtained by Fox News Digital, is addressed to Joshua Hoyos, the bureau chief for ABC News in New York, and Ian Rosenberg, the assistant chief counsel for ABC News.  

It claims that "The View" has made "false, derogatory, and defamatory statements" about the organization's recent Student Action Summit. 

In spite of repeated attempts, no one from ABC News could be reached for comment. 

The daytime talk show began its coverage of the TPUSA Student Action Summit, which took place over the weekend in Tampa, Florida, on Monday. 

Joy Behar criticized the group because neo-Nazi protestors were outside the venue, and the co-hosts of "The View" said the elaborate event took "a page from the WWE" simply because of special effects. 

Just like Goebbels did in the Third Reich, a group of neo-Nazis stood in front of the conference shouting anti-Semitic slurs and waving pictures of a caricatured Jew.
