Author Emerson Claims Defamation by Tweet
Investigative journalist Steve Emerson claims in court that a director of the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations defamed him in a Tweet that said, "Steve Emerson is an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest child pornography case in US history."
Emerson sued Cyrus McGoldrick in Federal Court.
Emerson, the author of eight books on terrorism, jihadism and U.S. foreign policy, won the 1994 George Polk award for his TV documentary "Jihad in America." He is executive director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism and has testified to congressional committees about al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups.
