New court filings released in the $1.6 Billion lawsuit by Dominion against Fox Propaganda, also known as Fox News. Revelations include a Rupert Murdoch email acknowledging that what Trump was pushing was “bullshit and dangerous”. Murdock knew it was wrong for Tucker Carlson to keep having MyPillow guy Mike Lindell on his show. Murdoch explained that this was business decision “it is not red or blue, it is green”. Murdoch emailed Paul Ryan, former House Speaker and then Fox board member that Sean Hannity had
“been privately disgusted by Trump for weeks, but was scared to lose viewers.”
Bottom line, Rupert Murdoch, under oath, admitted that Trump’s Big Lie was garbage. The only reason he allowed the entertainers on Fox to keep pushing the Big Lie was because Fox did not want to lose viewers to extreme right networks like Newsmax and OAN. Murdoch knew but he kept allowing it to happen.
The actual trial begins in mid-April. I would not be surprised if Fox offers Dominion an out of court settlement, with the stipulation that the settlement be held confidential. I would also not be surprised if Dominion refuses.
Alex Jones has been sued for hundreds of millions of dollars by the Sandy Hook families for the grief he put them through. The families of those who died or were injured during the January 6 insurrection should be lining up, behind Dominion, to sue Fox. Fox, in endorsing and selling Trump’s Big Lie, to its audience, should be seen as a major contributor to the insurrection. Right after the election, Rupert Murdoch had considered getting entertainers Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson on tv to say that the election was fair. It never happened If it had happened, Ashli Babbit, a pro Trumper, might never have gone to the Capitol and died. Even her family should be suing Fox.
Fox and the Rupert Murdoch empire should be sued for everything they have for the damage they have done.
