In a defamation case, Dominion Voting Systems has launched a $1.6 billion lawsuit against Fox News for slander. Several prominent Fox News personalities are being questioned. The complaint might be one of the most significant First Amendment lawsuits in a generation, exposing the corporate business side of American ‘news’ in order to help the public comprehend why they are receiving so much misinformation in their news and information.
While Dominion and the left insist that the voting machines are perfectly functional and suitable for elections, and demand that the news media portray the company as such, many Americans are demanding more transparency about the voting machines because they have experienced very suspicious things with the tabulations, leading them to doubt the results of ‘free and fair’ elections.
Fox News is in a tricky position since neither side has a great deal of faith in them.
In the 2020 election, when Fox News was so ready to declare Democrat Joe Biden the winner based on the unusual figures coming out of Arizona, they sealed the fate of the most bizarre presidential triumph the nation has ever witnessed. As a result of all the leftist political theater, a large number of viewers switched off Fox News for good.
Emerging evidence suggests that FOX News was a major player in the election night misinformation, and it serves as a reminder that the corporate media is far more concerned with their bottom line and keeping big business happy than with investigating people’s concerns about the government and providing the American people with the truth.
Dominion is intent on eliminating FOX so that they are unable to investigate and report on evident government conflicts concerning issues of significance to Americans.
It is a complete disaster.
“In Testimony, Hannity and Other Fox Employees Said They Doubted Trump’s Fraud Claims,” reports Jeremy Peters of The New York Times.
In testimony on Wednesday, Sean Hannity stated that he did not accept “for one second” the charges of electoral fraud that guests on his 2020 show were making.
“On Nov. 30, 2020, Sean Hannity hosted Sidney Powell on his prime-time Fox News program. As she had in many other interviews around that time — on Fox and elsewhere in right-wing media — Ms. Powell, a former federal prosecutor, spun wild conspiracy theories about what she said was “corruption all across the country, in countless districts,” in a plot to steal re-election from the president, Donald J. Trump,” Peters reported, adding:
“At the center of this imagined plot were machines from Dominion Voting Systems, which Ms. Powell claimed ran an algorithm that switched votes for Mr. Trump to votes for Joseph R. Biden Jr. Dominion machines, she insisted, were being used “to trash large batches of votes. Mr. Hannity interrupted her with a gentle question that had been circulating among election deniers, despite a lack of supporting proof: Why were Democrats silencing whistle-blowers who could prove this fraud?”
Did Mr. Hannity believe any of this?
“I did not believe it for one second.”

That was the answer Mr. Hannity gave, under oath, in a deposition in Dominion’s $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News, according to information disclosed in a court hearing on Wednesday. The hearing was called to address several issues that need to be resolved before the case heads for a jury trial, which the judge has scheduled to begin in April. CONTINUE READING…
