Dominion Sues Right Wing News Outlets Over False Election Fraud Claims

Dominion Voting Systems has hit both Newsmax and the One America News Network with billion dollar defamation lawsuits because of the claims the networks have been making about the 2020 election being stole – claims that are not supported by any evidence. Dominion has been more patient with these networks than they have with others, but the nonstop string of lies finally forced their hand on the matter.

After being sued by Dominion Voting Systems for slander Right-wing Trump supporting lawyer Sidney Powell is claiming in a new court filing that ‘Reasonable people’ wouldn’t believe her 2020 election fraud claims.

 

Title from YouTube: “$2.7 billion lawsuit against Fox News, Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell over ‘disinformation campaign.”

Description from YouTube: “The lawsuit, filed in New York state court, accused Fox, Giuliani, Powell and hosts Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, and Jeanine Pirro of intentionally lying about Smartmatic in an effort to mislead the public into the false belief that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from former President Donald Trump.

“They needed a villain,” the lawsuit said. “They needed someone to blame. They needed someone whom they could get others to hate. A story of good versus evil, the type that would incite an angry mob, only works if the storyteller provides the audience with someone who personifies evil.”

“Without any true villain, defendants invented one,” the lawsuit added. “Defendants decided to make Smartmatic the villain in their story.”

In a statement on behalf of the network and the named hosts issued after the lawsuit was filed, a Fox News spokesperson said, “FOX News Media is committed to providing the full context of every story with in-depth reporting and clear opinion. We are proud of our 2020 election coverage and will vigorously defend this meritless lawsuit in court.”

Asked for comment, Powell said in a statement, “I have not received notice or a copy of this alleged lawsuit. However, your characterization of the claims shows that this is just another political maneuver motivated by the radical left that has no basis in fact or law.”

In a statement of his own, Giuliani said, “The Smartmatic lawsuit presents another golden opportunity for discovery. I look forward to litigating with them.”

 

Dominion files $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News (Mar 26, 2021)

Dominion Voting Systems, a voting technology company that was the target of baseless conspiracy theories about the 2020 election, filed a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against the right-wing channel Fox News.

The company alleged that the network “recklessly disregarded the truth” and participated in a disinformation campaign against it because “the lies were good for Fox’s business.”

In the immediate aftermath of the 2020 election, then-President Donald Trump falsely asserted that the election had been rigged against him. His allies promoted outlandish conspiracy theories about Dominion to support Trump’s false claims.

“Fox took a small flame” of disinformation and “turned it into a forest fire,” Dominion said in its lawsuit.

A spokesperson for Fox said the network was “proud” of its 2020 election coverage, describing it as standing “in the highest tradition of American journalism.” The spokesperson added that Fox will “vigorously defend against this baseless lawsuit in court.”

I hope FOX is SUED into bankruptcy!
