Right wing networks Fox News, OAN and Newsmax could be found liable in cases brought by voting machine company Dominion. In the months following the 2020 US presidential election, rightwing TV news in America was a wild west, an apparently lawless free-for-all where conspiracy theories about voting machines, ballot-stuffed suitcases and dead Venezuelan leaders were repeated to viewers around the clock.
There seemed to be little consequence for peddling the most outrageous ideas on primetime.
But now, unfortunately for Fox News, One America News Network (OAN), and Newsmax, it turns out that this brave, new world wasn’t free from legal jurisdiction – with the three networks now facing billion-dollar lawsuits as a result of their baseless accusations.

Huffington Post has an interesting article about what is likely to come out in discovery - lots of coordination with trump’s white house. Sounds like it could be very damning all around.
“Fox News Potentially Facing Major Financial Damage In Dogged Suit Over Election Lies”
“Discovery in the case could reveal bombshell messages among the Trump White House, Fox personalities, and even Rupert Murdoch.”
I don't even have a TV anymore, but when I did, Fox came prepackaged into programming and was added to every one even if you paid for movies,sports and other packages, it was in every package regardless. Now you choose a basic package for 25 bucks and pick and choose whatever else you want to add. At 1/25, Fox is in all of the cheapest packages... https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/crtc-rules-cable-companies-must-offer-pick-and-pay-channels-25-basic-package-1.3001370
From what I have read, the USA pays more...
EVEN IF YOU NEVER WATCH FOX NEWS
YOU'RE FUNDING THEIR PROGRAMMING
Great news! Thank you
Fox "news" demanding freedom of the press when it hires non-journalists and will not air anything but RW lies and garbage spewed for paid liars... is ludicrous.
I hope Fox, Newsmax, and OAN get sued into oblivion, along with all those lying fuckers on those networks.
And I hope Rupert Murdoch has a case of explosive diarrhoea, in a crowded environment where everyone will have their phones out videoing of all the world to see.
I hope Fox, Newsmax, and OAN all get destroyed by the Dominion lawsuits.
They have all been a pox on this country and they all ruled out reaching any kind of civil consensus on the extremely pressing issues the country and world faces.
I hope they get ground into dirt and put out of business. Fuck Fox and Friends and the rest of them. Fuck Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, or any of the other idiots that fill American heads with pro-oil Russian propaganda. And most of all, fuck Rupert Murdoch. With something big and sharp-edged.
