GSA Conference Drummer Called 'Hippie Dippy' Sues
This led, inevitably, to some mocking in the media. Juliet Huddy, a reporter for Fox News' O'Reilly Factor, called the presenter in question "this little hippie dippy chick," and made fun of the distribution of "whackers" to the audience and their use in the presentation.
Well, the woman who apparently is the presenter in question is not taking the criticism sitting down. The Atlantic Wire reports that Aviva Nash, who owns a business called Drum Cafe, is suing Huddy, along with Bill O'Reilly (host of the program that bears his name) and another Fox news host, Greta Van Susteren, for defamation. Nash says the "hippie dippy chick" remark, along with characterizations of her as " insane," and the conference as "a con," have damaged her reputation and her business.
More specifically, Nash calls the remarks "debasing, demeaning, humiliating, degrading, defaming and denigrating."
Whether or not a judge finds that to be true, it seems unlikely that Nash will receive any business from federal agencies any time soon.
