Well well well, if it isn't the consequences of my own actions.

Fox News bears much of the responsibility for the paranoia and fascistic mindset that have poisoned American conservatism. Decades of lies and misinformation are not good for democracy. I hope they get their ass handed to them in court.

America has been foxholed by FoxProp.

Wouldn't be surprised to find out someday that Russia is either helping or supporting them in some way or they are just copying Russian propaganda methods.

Somewhat related,

Amanda Jones, a librarian at a middle school in Denham Springs, Louisiana, filed a defamation lawsuit Wednesday, arguing that Facebook pages run by Michael Lunsford and Ryan Thames falsely labeled her a pedophile who wants to teach 11-year-olds about ---- sex.

This is primarily a personnel hiring problem.

They need to raise the required IQ level to at least 80.

And God forbid we ever see one of these spokesmodels without makeup.

"They need to raise the required IQ level to at least 80."

Don't make excuses for them.
They know what they're doing. They know they're lying. They're not much different than the conservatives here in that regard.

"Freedom of speech" is in no way synonymous with knowingly spreading "information" unsupported by evidence.

PS Especially to the mob of armed, credulous and moronic MAGAts. It's a recipe for violence. And ad revenue. Ka-ching.

Murdoch needs to be considered as the enemy of democracy that he is

No reason he should still have his US Citizenship.

Trump ramped up the "denaturalization" process in his admin bigly. Even created an entire new "section" of government to do it. Funded it with hundreds of millions of dollars to get rid of "them."

Maybe it should be used for something good?

@#8 ... "Freedom of speech" is in no way synonymous with knowingly spreading "information" unsupported by evidence. ...

My guess is that SCOTUS will eventually be ruling on this...

#11 I think they'll punt. They already said Fox News can lie all they want.

though I would love to believe that a law suit would result in more honest reporting by Fox, we all know Fox has so much money and power it won't be hlange anything about their reporting.

The blatant (as shown by Hannutty's texts) Faux lies about Dominion have destroyed their business. Nobody in either red or blue Ameeica will buy another Dominion machine because no MAGAt will ever again accept the results of an election run with their machines. Hopefully the business-friendly SCOTUS might consider that. Despite first amendment protection, you are responsible for your speech, fire in a crowded theater type stuff, you can't run around slandering people willy nilly. I mean how would they like it if people started calling Tucker a pedo or Hannitty a rapist or Ingraham a racist...oh, she is, never mind.

I like Dominion's old name, Diebold.

When does Fox News become Dominion News?

And when does "My pillow" become "Dominion pillows"?
