Defamation Case Regarding Election Lies Brings Fox to its Knees

(MENAFN) The Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit has the potential to be one of the most important First Amendment issues in a generation.

Following President Donald J. Trump's defeat in the 2020 election, Fox Business commentator Lou Dobbs claimed that he had "tremendous evidence " of voting fraud. However, a new suspect in a purported election rigging plot emerged: Dominion Voting Systems, a provider of voting equipment whose algorithms, according to Mr. Dobbs, " were designed to be inaccurate."

Another network anchor, Maria Bartiromo, erroneously claimed that “Nancy Pelosi has an interest in this company.” A Fox News presenter named Jeanine Pirro hypothesized that "technical glitches " in the software used by Dominion " could have affected thousands of absentee mail-in ballots."

The Fox Corporation is being sued by Dominion for defamation on the grounds that Fox frequently broadcast false, absurd, and exaggerated allegations about the company and its alleged involvement in a scheme to steal votes from Mr. Trump. Those unfounded accusations are now just a few of the many that have been cited in the lawsuit.
