Dominion Voting sues Fox for $1.6B over 2020 election claims


WASHINGTON (AP) — Dominion Voting Systems on Friday filed a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News, arguing the cable news giant falsely claimed in an effort to boost faltering ratings that the voting company had rigged the 2020 election.

It’s the first defamation suit filed against a media outlet by the voting company, which was a target of misleading, false and bizarre claims spread by President Donald Trump and his allies in the aftermath of Trump’s election loss to Joe Biden. Those claims helped spur on rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 in a violent siege that left five people dead, including a police officer. The siege led to Trump’s historic second impeachment.

Dominion argues that Fox News, which amplified inaccurate assertions that Dominion altered votes, “sold a false story of election fraud in order to serve its own commercial purposes, severely injuring Dominion in the process,” according to a copy of the lawsuit obtained by The Associated Press.

“The truth matters. Lies have consequences,” the lawsuit said. “Fox sold a false story of election fraud in order to serve its own commercial purposes, severely injuring Dominion in the process. If this case does not rise to the level of defamation by a broadcaster, then nothing does.”

Some Fox News on-air reporting segments have debunked some of the claims targeting Dominion. An email sent to Fox News on Friday morning, seeking comment on the lawsuit, was not immediately returned.  Read more…

  1. has ALL the data from NSA/NRO watch last video1st then first video where Calculus professor proves MATHEMATICALLY taught to class the needed algorithm needed for China, Venezuela & Iran using computer #’s when they used 2010 Census data to show more people voted than there registered voters. And stuck to SAME algorithm in every county across the entire USA, every county meant the scale was ‘hooked’ & hacked.

  2. Listened to a Fox video of Tucker in which he said that they had (politely) asked Powell multiple times for evidence at least as early as Nov 19, didn’t get a satisfactory answer…she told them to stop contacting her? They even asked other Trumpet officials if they had seen the ‘evidence’, nope. For them to continue to entertain this meme is why they are getting what they deserve. WHEN will those who watch Fox realize that when Murdoch said Fox News was not a ‘news show’, it was entertainment…he wasn’t kidding. I especially liked how Trumpets viewed this entire event (re: Fox). They said 1)Fox went over to the dark side or 2)If Fox can’t find the proof, there isn’t any. Which do you think was the most prevalent? My money is on #1. That is, of course, based on my own statistics compiled during rants from rabid Trumpets, so it may not be entirely representative of reality. That’s my disclaimer. I haven’t asked their thoughts (if any) on Powell’s statement that this was her opinion, not facts. Of course, I feel certain that they would say this is only a legal technicality, to avoid law suits. The fact that there is a basis for a suit should tell them volumes, but it won’t.
