Fox News and Fox Corp. recently settled a defamation suit with Dominion Voting Systems for $787.5 million (and what looks like a possible agreement to fire some Fox News TV hosts). Dominion alleged that employees of Fox News voiced false vote-rigging claims causing what Dominion CEO John Poulos claims was “enormous damage to my company, our employees, and the customers that we serve.”
But the lawsuits don’t end there. Dominion and Smartmatic are suing Sidney Powell who was on the Trump’s legal team. They have filed a $1.3 billion defamation suit against her. Also being sued is ex- Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne.
Dominion and Smartmatic are also going after Rudy Giuliani with a defamation suit for $1.3 billion in damages.
Dominion and Smartmatic are also going after My Pillow’s Mike Lindell with a defamation suit for $1.3 billion in damages.
Also on the hook are TV networks Newsmax and One America News. Dominion filed a $1.6 billion defamation suit against each of them.
Hey, if you can’t control the conservative news media, get rid of them, right?
In a newsletter sent out by Sidney Powell called “Defending the Republic” she warns everyone that the lawsuits are about putting conservative networks and TV hosts out of business. She said, “The scale of these damages, and those being sought in a similar lawsuit by fellow voting machine company Smartmatic, are not about remedying a harm. They are about putting Fox out of business.”
Powell goes on to say that the leftist news media are gleefully helping with the lawsuits. She said the most revealing part of the Dominion/Fox case came about on Tuesday when Dominion attorney Davinda Brook “thanked the assembled press for the role they have played in the company’s heist.”
Brook said, “Thank you, to all of you, for being with us on this journey. We appreciate what you’ve done to help us and to help expose what we were able to discover over the course of this process. So thank you and we’ll see you at the next one.”
Powell said in the newsletter, “Every step of the Dominion lawsuit was a collaborative effort between lawyers and an army of press allies. Their objective: the destruction of a rival press outlet they hated, and the remaking of American defamation laws in order to do it.”
That brings up another point – also laughable in this whole deal is the fact that CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, Washington Post lie about things all day long, especially about Donald Trump. But that’s okay. It’s okay that they lied about the Russia Hoax for years (and still do). It’s okay for the leftist media folks to have free speech rights but not Fox News, OAN or Newsmax.
It’s also okay if the Democrats tell the truth – about Dominion Voting Systems.
Democrats weren’t too fond of them before they learned they might be able to use these voting systems to their benefit. And Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren wasn’t the only one who questioned the voting systems.
Democratic senators Amy Klobuchar and Ron Wyden along with Representative Mark Pocan, were on board with Warren to investigate vulnerabilities and shortcomings of election technology industry with ties to private equity. This was in 2019 (before the election).
Warren’s website still has the information online which I find surprising – but then again, Democrats know that Dominion and Smartmatic won’t be suing them. On the website, it talks about three private equity-owned election technology vendors (which includes Dominion) who “serve 90% of eligible voters but fail to sufficiently innovate, improve, and protect deteriorating voting systems; Election security experts have noted for years that our nation’s voting systems and election infrastructure are under serious threat.”
Hm… that doesn’t sound like they are praising Dominion, does it? The Democratic lawmakers were seeking more information on the private equity investment folks who were creating and perpetuating the conditions that produced the vulnerabilities and lack of transparency in the election technology industry.
Warren wasn’t too keen on the voting systems being used and made it a campaign issue when she was running for president. A Time article said she wanted to “replace every voting machine in the country with with state-of-the-art equipment, lock all federal voting technology behind a security firewall, and require states to adopt uniform election ballots to prevent common ballot mishaps like hanging chads.” She went on to say, “Our elections should be as secure as Fort Knox. But instead, they’re less secure than your Amazon account,”
Again, not exactly a ringing endorsement for Dominion.
But don’t worry, Lizzie. Dominion won’t come after you. Unless you re-register as a Republican. Then all bets are off.
