Democrats spent years trying to destroy Fox News Channel.
Now liberals may have found an unlikely avenue towards canceling the only corporate media outlet that contradicts the Democrat Party’s talking points.
And Tucker Carlson got dragged into court and what he says could end Fox News.
Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Jeanine Pirro, and Steve Doocy are among the many hosts deposed as part of Dominion Voting System’s $1.6 billion defamation suit against Fox News.
The New York Times reported:
“Sean Hannity became the latest Fox star to be called for a deposition by Dominion’s legal team, according to a new filing in Delaware Superior Court. He is scheduled to appear on Wednesday.
Tucker Carlson is set to face questioning on Friday. Lou Dobbs, whose Fox Business show was canceled last year, is scheduled to appear on Tuesday. Others who have been deposed recently include Jeanine Pirro, Steve Doocy and a number of high-level Fox producers, court records show.”
Dominion is suing Fox over some hosts reporting on claims – that turned out not to be true – that Dominion voting machines switched votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden during the 2020 election.
The lawsuit alleges:
“Fox, one of the most powerful media companies in the United States, gave life to a manufactured storyline about election fraud that cast a then-little-known voting machine company called Dominion as the villain. After the November 3, 2020 Presidential Election, viewers began fleeing Fox in favor of media outlets endorsing the lie that massive fraud caused President Trump to lose the election.
They saw Fox as insufficiently supportive of President Trump, including because Fox was the first network to declare that President Trump lost Arizona. So Fox set out to lure viewers back—including President Trump himself— by intentionally and falsely blaming Dominion for President Trump’s loss by rigging the election.”
Fox News released a statement declaring its confidence that it would prevail on First Amendment grounds as all the Fox hosts did was repeat claims made by others for the purposes of journalism.
“We are confident we will prevail as freedom of the press is foundational to our democracy and must be protected, in addition to the damages claims being outrageous, unsupported and not rooted in sound financial analysis, serving as nothing more than a flagrant attempt to deter our journalists from doing their jobs,” Fox’s statement read.
Democrat activists are salivating at the idea of Dominion putting Carlson on the stand.
Not only do liberals hope to financially cripple Fox News with a multibillion-dollar payout that will cut back their profits to the point that the Murdoch family sells the network.
At that point a left-wing group will swoop in, buy Fox and turn the network into another CNN or MSNBC and give the Democrats a 100 percent dominance in the corporate media.
