“During and after the November 2020 election, OAN saw a business opportunity,” the suit alleges. “Spurred by a quest for profits and viewers, OAN — a competitor to media giant Fox — engaged in a race to the bottom with Fox and other outlets such as Newsmax to spread false and manufactured stories about election fraud.

Dominion quickly became the focus of this downward spiral of lies, as each broadcaster attempted to outdo the others by making the lies more outrageous, spreading them further, and endorsing them as strongly as possible.” (Raw Story)

Daily Beast: The crank conservative news networks One America News and Newsmax have become the latest entities to be sued by Dominion Voting Systems for spreading lies alleging it rigged the 2020 election against Donald Trump.

Dominion, one of the biggest voting-machine companies in the U.S., filed the twin lawsuits Tuesday. According to The Wall Street Journal, the company accuses the two outlets of harming its reputation by spreading ridiculous claims that its machines somehow switched votes from Trump to Joe Biden.

Dominion is reportedly seeking more than $1.6 billion in damages in each of the lawsuits. “Newsmax helped create and cultivate an alternate reality where up is down, pigs have wings, and Dominion engaged in a colossal fraud to steal the presidency from Donald Trump by rigging the vote,” one of the suits states.

Dominion also filed a lawsuit making similar allegations against businessman Patrick Byrne, the former chief executive of online retailer Overstock.com Inc OSTK.O.
