Dominion Voting Systems sues Fox News for $1.6B for false election claims

  • Dominion Voting Systems on Friday filed a $1.6 billion US defamation lawsuit against Fox News, arguing that in an effort to boost faltering ratings, the cable news giant falsely claimed that the voting company had rigged the 2020 election.


    It's the first defamation suit filed against a media outlet by the voting company, which was founded in Toronto by John Poulos and James Hoover.


    Dominion was a target of misleading, false and bizarre claims spread by President Donald Trump and his allies in the aftermath of Trump's election loss to Joe Biden. Those claims helped spur on rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 in a violent siege that left five people dead, including a police officer. The siege led to Trump's historic second impeachment.


    Dominion argues that Fox News, which amplified inaccurate assertions that Dominion altered votes, "sold a false story of election fraud in order to serve its own commercial purposes, severely injuring Dominion in the process," according to a copy of the lawsuit obtained by The Associated Press.


    The company argues that Fox News, a network that features several pro-Trump personalities, pushed the false claims to explain the former president's loss. The cable giant lost viewers after the election and was seen by some Trump supporters as not being supportive enough of the Republican.


    Attorneys for Dominion said Fox News's behaviour differs greatly from that of other media outlets that reported on the claims.

    "This was a conscious, knowing business decision to endorse and repeat and broadcast these lies in order to keep its viewership," said attorney Justin Nelson.

    tRump is the Master of the Con with 70 years of practice/experience. It is sad that so many supposedly intelligent and educated people fall for his cons.

    DJ Trump: while I support the Dems, if I ran I would run as a Republican because those people are easy to fool.


  • It also opens the door to something called "Discovery".

    Yah discovery that the pine apple patriots were conned by the greatest snake oil hustler of all time.:blueflower

  • They have no case at all and destroyed a lot of the potential evidence so they are not only not going to win but they are going to be raising even more doubts in the minds of Americans.

  • Dominion is saying that that you can't have anyone speak who thinks there was fraud. This is basically the party line of big tech social media. Fox never accused dominion of anything. unlike the dems and big tech who said that there was russian collusion and that they had proof... when it turned out that they had none at all.


    Trump has a better case suing all them.

  • Fox News pundits sure did accuse Dominion. The case may take a few years and be appealed a few times on technical issues but in the end Dominion will prevail. Fox News will cave though and probably settle.

    “Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official.”

  • It will show a very embarrassing money trail to Democrats at the very least.

    It can't show what doesn't exist. Face it, your wet dreams of electoral fraud and Trump is not going to change the facts, which is the majority of US voters fired the Orange Cow and there was no wide spread electoral fraud.

    “Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official.”

  • Fake mexican.. in your wet dreams... FOX never directly accused the election fraud dominion of fraud. They allowed guests to do so.. no big deal.. free speech and all that.


    FOX may settle for a few thousand just to not be bothered. dominion is not suing the actual people who are accusing them because of discovery.


    They destroyed evidence. great.. but destroyed evidence is a double edged sword. "I say the evidence you destroyed would have proven you are scum' they say.. "I say the evidence we destroyed would prove we did not cheat" Soooooo lets look at the destroyed evidence?

    A new election study from left-leaning Missoula, Montana found that 6.33% of all mail-in ballots lacked envelopes and the required signatures indicating it was cast on time.


    In November, the group approached state Rep. Brad Tschida, a Republican, to formally take up the issue. Tschida hired a lawyer involved in the group, Quentin Rhoades, to represent him in corresponding with Missoula County Elections Administrator Bradley Seaman, a Democratic appointee and a longtime supporter of progressive causes.


    Seaman’s office complied with Tschida’s request for access to all of the county’s ballot envelopes, and on Jan. 4 a team of volunteers, overseen by Rhoades, conducted an audit with the assistance of the Missoula County Elections Office. The audit consisted of both a count and review of all ballot envelopes and comparing that to the number of officially recorded votes during the Nov. 3, 2020, general election.


    Its conclusions were troubling: 4,592 out of the 72,491 mail-in ballots lacked envelopes— 6.33% of all votes. Without an officially printed envelope with registration information, a voter’s signature, and a postmark indicating whether it was cast on time, election officials cannot verify that a ballot is legitimate. It is against the law to count such votes.


    What’s more, according to auditors, county employees claimed that during the post-election audit, some of the envelopes may have been double-counted, possibly indicating an even higher number of missing envelopes.

    Lemme say that again... I don't care. If. The accusations against Trump. Are factual. Or not.

  • Why do dems not want fair elections?... ahh... nevermind.

    It wasn't the Democrats crying about some fantasy of a stolen election, it's sniveling pussies like you that do and supported Trumptard's attempt at destroying our democracy. So it begs the question, why are you and the other sniveling pussies in this forum so anti-American? You un-American fucks tried to steal the election like some Banana Republic.

    “Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official.”

  • Ok... the fake mexican has gone off the deep end. 4 false statements in a row? Soooo pancho vanilla... how exactly was Trump attempting to steal our 'democracy'? How is it un American to want a free and fair election?


    mainly tho... why are you against secure elections where fraud is more difficult? Why are you against voter ID? Why are you against people who want to vote by mail actually requesting........... a ballot and having their signature checked? Why do you hate fair elections?
