You can always attempt to sue the particular news or media agency for defamation or slander, but it may prove to be pretty difficult. You would have to show that the particular agency knowingly published false information with a malicious intent to harm your character. Typically, the media will report on news or information made available to them via public or private dissemination. Showing that the agency knowingly published false information is hard to show in a civil suit, but it may be worth it if you can make viable claim against them.
