Lanny J. Davis, CSG attorney, denounces Hursey for false and defamatory accusations
Article taken down by The Daily Caller as not credible
Cites two other writers, Kristofer Harrison in "Foreign Policy" and "American Thinker" and Chris Yurko in two "Real Clear Defense" articles as also forced to delete or entirely taken down due to false accusations against CSG
WASHINGTON, June 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Washington D.C. Attorney Lanny J. Davis, representing the Czechoslovak Group (CSG), thanked a leading U.S. news website, "The Daily Caller," for removing from its website a post by someone purported to be named David Hursey for posting false accusations against CSG for what the editors described as "credible concerns" raised by CSG "about the accuracy of claims in the article related to CSG." The take down of Hursey's post and the Daily Caller's acceptance of concerns about Hursey's credibility can be found at the prior link to this post, now taken down entirely, at http://dailycaller.com/2017/11/10/putins-war-dogs-in-europe/
Davis pointed out that two other purported authors named Kristofer Harrison and Chris Yurko also had their posts taken down by credible U.S. news organizations, which contained remarkably similar or identical attacks on CSG, references to obscure names and websites, and sometimes even cross-referencing to each other's articles that have now been corrected or taken down entirely.
He referred media, and in particular Czech Republic media, to the Hursey article take down as well as the take downs of Harrison and Yurko articles at the following links to Foreign Policy, American Thinker, and Real Clear Defense:
Kristofer Harrison -- deletions and corrections: http://foreignpolicy.com/2018/03/16/putin-is-poisoning-prague/; https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/05/swampy_speeches_for_overseas_oligarchs.html (taken down entirely, followed by Statement by American Thinker: "This piece has been withdrawn owing to a false statement it contained.) American Thinker apologizes to the CSG Group…for the error."
Chris Yurko: May 21, 2018 article – and July 17, 2017 article: https://www.realcleardefense.com/articles/2017/05/02/from_czechia_with_love_111286.html https://www.realcleardefense.com/articles/2017/07/17/the_czech-russian_arms-trade_connection_111801.html
