  • Nexstar Media, the largest U.S. TV station holder, settled a defamation case with former President Donald Trump’s media company just days before Nexstar’s NewsNation is set to host the fourth Republican presidential primary debate.
  • Trump Media & Technology Group Corp., the parent company of Truth Social, filed a defamation lawsuit last month against Nexstar and 19 other media organizations for stories alleging that the company had lost tens of millions of dollars. Nexstar was named in the lawsuit because its subsidiary, The Hill, reported on the purported loss.
