Fox News has to debunk its own false news

Post by iaafan » Mon Dec 21, 2020 10:16 am



Smartmatic basically threatened a lawsuit and Fox had to run the above during three of its programs, including Lou Dobbs, all of which smeared Smartmatic (an electronic vote counting company) over the voter fraud.

This is pretty much how Fox operates.

This was about Tucker Carlson's lies on his show:

Fox's lawyers: The "'general tenor' of the show should then inform a viewer that [Carlson] is not 'stating actual facts' about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in 'exaggeration' and 'non-literal commentary.' "

NewsMax is doing a similar retraction for Smartmatic and Dominion. I have to give them credit this is an all-encompassing retraction. They really make it clear that they were lying.

Unfortunately the damage is done. The people that think Trump was cheated aren’t going to change their minds and we now know that Trump, Rudy and numerous politicians are going to continue pushing this lie and other lies regardless of what happens.

Those followers of Trump see these admissions and blow them off as being Deep State manipulation.

Smartmatic, a voting system company, is now suing Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Fox News, and Fox hosts Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, and Jeanine Pirro for $2.7 billion. Another hit to the false fake election claims that have helped divide the country.

CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS will now, magically, report news instead of trying to shape opinion. Right? Fodder for a George Orwell novel. War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.
