Respectfully requesting a retraction of rancorous rumors
Letter from the law firm Cheatem, Swindell & Lye
The Del Rio News-Herald is currently running an advertising campaign entitled: “Fake News is No Joke! Get your news from a trusted source!” with pictures of our clients to try and sell the newspaper as a source of news to be trusted.
We represent: Extraterrestrial Beings, not “Space Aliens”, traveling inside a Spacecraft not an “Unidentified Flying Object (UFO)”, Sasquatch, not “Bigfoot”, and Loch Ness, not “Monster”.
Our clients demand a prompt retraction and a sincere and genuine apology.
Their good name and reputation has been besmirched and they take great offense in their being ridiculed and made the butt of jokes that are condescending and demeaning.
There has been irreparable damage done by your repugnant and disreputable advertisement calling them “fakers”.
If they don’t exist, then how can it be that there are pictures of them to prove that they most certainly exist in this wonderful world of ours, where unsolved mysteries abound and inexplicable phenomenon flourish?
They take umbrage and certainly find it offensive and cruel to insinuate that they are not real, when there are millions of people who have seen them, and there are millions more who believe they exist even though they have never seen them up close and personal, yet in their heart of hearts they believe wholeheartedly.
If your newspaper does not cease to run these false and derogatory advertisements we have no recourse other than to legally sue for libel.
We hope that in good faith, you will print a retraction and that will be the end of this sad and sorry episode, and we can all put this unfortunate incident behind us, and all of us can continue to live in peace, harmony and serenity.
Otherwise, you leave us no option other than to continue fighting for our clients’ good name and reputation by not having to contend with these hideous and horrendous advertisements spreading egregious lies.
