Conservative group Turning Point USA sent a cease and desist letter to ABC News on Tuesday, demanding the network retract statements made on “The View” about its recent conference.
The report was based on statements made by “The View” earlier this week that could lead to legal action by the conservative organization.

“The false statements of fact intentionally made during The View’s July 25th segment were unquestionably harmful to TPUSA’s reputation and brought the organization and its student affiliates into disrepute with the public, potential donors, and current and future business partners, posing a significant financial loss to the organization,” the letter said.
It added that “The View” made “false, derogatory, and defamatory statements” about its recent Student Action Summit.

“The View” claimed the event looked like there were Neo-Nazis making antisemitic slurs and comparing the event to the Third Reich.
The horrendous accusations could come back to hurt ABC, a network that has already recently dealt with antisemitic concerns from co-host Whoopi Goldberg.
