The fallout from the 2020 presidential election continues in the United States. Not only are we saddled with a stunning embarrassment of a chief executive, but now the name brand of the voting machines used to deliver him to the American people on a silver platter is busy suing everyone who called foul on their method of counting ballots and votes for defamation.
Former Trump lawyers Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani have been served, and now Fox News – a network that actually called the race for Biden in lockstep with the other mainstream media networks – is in the crosshairs.
Dominion Voting Systems Corp filed a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News, accusing the cable news network of falsely claiming the voting company rigged the 2020 presidential election in order to boost its ratings, Dominion said on Friday.
Dominion — which has already sued former President Donald Trump’s campaign lawyer Sidney Powell and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani — argued Fox News “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…
“The disinformation campaign waged against our company has caused us severe damage and undermined trust in American democratic institutions,” Dominion Chief Executive Joe Poulos said in a statement. “These lies also have threatened the personal safety of our employees and customers. No amount of money will repair the damage done.”
The lawsuit was filed in Delaware for some reason.
Fox, of course, as an institution denies the allegations, but it is rather interesting that the states where the final vote count is in dispute regardless of what goes on on Capitol Hill all used Dominion products in the election effort.
It’s hard to deal with that reality regardless of the accusations of any “disinformation campaign.”
