On October 30th, Bateman filed a One Billion Dollar lawsuit against the Associated Press, Walt Disney Company, Viacom, NBC Universal, the New York Times, Clear Channel Communications, Comcast, and Time Warner, all of whom collectively control 95% of all news, entertainment, and financial releases in the United States via its membership in the Associated Press.
Although Bateman's complaint was lodged on October 30th, and his first court appearance has not been set by the court as of today, he did encounter a stroke of luck as he walked out of the Federal District Court in downtown Los Angeles this afternoon.
"As I was walking out of the courthouse, CBS, K-CAL, NBC, FOX, and ABC live trucks were all lined up across the street covering some worthless celebrity court appearance, and I knew I could serve them up their own story, and so I did. I walked across the street, and at that exact same moment, all of these producers, reporters, and photographers began walking back to their trucks, and one by one, I handed them my lodged complaint. When I reached the end of the block, I turned around and looked at all of them reading my complaint. How can anyone in the media cover this up?"
