Will Fox News change after Dominion defamation settlement?Apr 20, 2023
It seemed that Fox News was already written on the wall. The world's media was camped out in Delaware to cover a blockbuster court case. A voting company was suing Fox News for knowingly spreading misinformation about the 2020 election. The jury was selected by all. it was done and then it was all over before it started congratulations on standing up for democracy this trial was going to last six weeks but this afternoon the judge came out and said the parties had settled the case because fox
dominionhad agreed to settle then he saw Dominion's lawyers to come out and reveal that they had been given $787.5 million by Fox, who admitted to telling lies or, more importantly, not saying whether Fox News or Rupert Murdoch would publicly apologize today represents a resounding endorsement of truth and democracy.
Throughout this process we have sought accountability and we believe that the evidence that has come to light through this case underscores the consequences of spreading lies that the voter
willflag those lies have revolved around Dominion's ballot counting machines ever since Donald Trump lost to Joe Biden his lawyers pushed the completely false accusation that Dominion software had reversed the vote against Trump and Fox gave the Trump team free rein to air their conspiracies and how important they think are the concerns they They express themselves in various states about the ability of these machines to not be hacked. machines can be hacked, there is no question their machines can be hacked, and through text messages and private emails uncovered in court documents, Dominion claimed that fox figures, from Rupert Murdoch on down, knew not to there was evidence but they still aired them anyway just to keep their pro-trump audience happy that's where they were trading votes on the computer system or adding votes that didn't exist Fox News lawyers didn't speak as they walked out of court in a In a later statement they said they were pleased to have reached a
settlementand acknowledged the Court's rulings that certain claims about Dominion were false, but what they said next in their statement drew laughter from fellow journalists the
settlementreflects Sorry, this is going to be hard to say seriously this deal reflects fox's continued commitment to the highest journalistic standards we are hopeful that our dismal reporting suggests that fox
newsdoes not have to issue a public apology and so far the only people Kicked off the channel during the 2020 election were two editors who correctly declared Joe Biden the winner. they didn't fire the dupes this is going to
changefox at all nothing is going to
changeanyone watching fox news is aware that these things have happened because fox hasn't been covering the situation they haven't been telling the truth about the situation I've been on Fox created a beast he can't control You know they pushed Trump into His audience and now His audience believes everything he says Well they've become hostages of their own creation.
He is a Frankenstein in many ways. all the time what they were building how it was infecting the electorate the political system contaminating democracy and to this day they are still going to do it fox has another lawsuit with another voting company in the future they have four billion dollars in cash on hand their ratings are high and have prevented their biggest stars from appearing in court. They can afford to keep paying for this, but what about American democracy? We must share a commitment to facts. Misinformation
willnot go away. It can only get worse. the january 6 riot and still around for next year's election that's why a lot of republicans still want the same guy and know the same channel will defend his re-election
