“Fox repeatedly published defamatory falsehoods about Dominion,
including by broadcasting and rebroadcasting the defamatory falsehoods of its onair personalities Maria Bartiromo, Tucker Carlson, Lou Dobbs, Sean Hannity,
Jeanine Pirro, and their chosen guests, as well as by republishing those falsehoods
across Fox’s websites, social media accounts, and subscription service platforms.
Republication of these falsehoods through digital media, including social media
platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, reached tens if not hundreds of
millions of viewers in excess of Fox’s television audience through followers of its
social media accounts and through the further republication of the falsehoods by
FauxNews’s response to the pre-suit criticism was actually to double down by further diminishing its new team and elevate talking heads. That was the PUBLIC response. LOL
at least 2 of those hosts are ADMITTED liars . . ie people who admitted their lies, directly or tacitly, when faced with a lawsuit.
From Raw Story. They say back up the dump truck with money. I’m not sure one dump truck will do it. They damaged the reputation of a large company, and this company’s viability depends totally on the reputation not only of the product but also the company.
Dominion Voting Systems has filed a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News, and political scientist Brendan Nyhan believes it’s in the network’s interest to settle as quickly as possible.
Nyhan, a professor of political science at Dartmouth, writes on Twitter that Fox will likely be very wary of giving Dominion’s lawyers a crack at discovery over fears of what they might turn up.
“Discovery is going to be lit if this gets that far,” he writes. “Plausible Fox drives a dump truck of money up to Dominion like it did in the Seth Rich case to make this go away.”
In its lawsuit against Fox, Dominion argues that the network “sold a false story of election fraud in order to serve its own commercial purposes, severely injuring Dominion in the process.”
Dominion’s lawsuit came even after Fox earlier this year fired host Lou Dobbs, who was one of the network’s chief purveyors of bogus conspiracy theories about the company’s voting machines.
Additionally, Fox aired several on-air corrections debunking false claims made by Dobbs and other hosts about Dominion voting machines, which suggests that the network’s legal team has known for months that it has real exposure in any defamation case brought by the company.
