REVERSED AND RENDERED

This accelerated appeal challenges the trial court’s denial of both traditional and no-evidence motions for summary judgment in a defamation action against media defendants. The defamation action arose out of a story aired during two news broadcasts. The appellants contend that the trial court erred in denying their no-evidence motion for summary judgment because no evidence was produced that the statements were false or were made negligently or with actual malice. The appellants further contend that the trial court erred in denying their traditional motion for summary judgment because the broadcasts were true or substantially true and the evidence conclusively established that the statements were not made negligently or with actual malice. We reverse the trial court’s orders and render judgment in favor of the appellants.
