Dominion Voting Systems Wins $787.5 Million Settlement with Fox News – Watch
In a major victory for Dominion Voting Systems, Fox News has agreed to settle a defamation lawsuit for $787.5 million. The lawsuit, which was filed in 2021, alleged that Fox News had defamed Dominion by repeatedly broadcasting false claims that the company’s voting machines were rigged in the 2020 election.
The settlement is a major blow to Fox News, which has long been accused of spreading misinformation and propaganda. It is also a victory for Dominion, which has been fighting to clear its name after being falsely accused of rigging the election.
The settlement comes at a time when Fox News is facing increasing scrutiny from both the left and the right. On the left, Fox News is being criticized for its role in spreading misinformation about the 2020 election. On the right, Fox News is being criticized for its close ties to former President Donald Trump.
The settlement is a sign that Fox News is facing increasing pressure to change its ways. It is also a sign that the public is becoming more aware of the dangers of misinformation.
In a statement, Dominion CEO John Poulos said that the settlement “is a victory for truth and justice.” He added that the settlement “sends a clear message that those who spread lies and misinformation will be held accountable.”
Fox News did not issue a statement on the settlement. However, the company’s lawyers said in a court filing that the settlement “is in the best interests of all parties.”
The settlement is a major victory for Dominion, but it is not the end of the story. Dominion is still facing lawsuits from other companies that were also falsely accused of rigging the election. It is also facing a criminal investigation by the Justice Department.
It remains to be seen whether this blow will cause Fox to change in any way.
