Fox News Settles Dominion Defamation Lawsuit for... $787.5 Million

Almost a billion dollars.

We have to reform the courts to require a change of venue in politically-charged cases. Fox obviously settled for nearly a billion dollars because they feared the venue (Democrat bastion and home of Joe Biden, Delaware).

Fox News and Dominion Voting Systems reached a $787.5 million settlement agreement Tuesday afternoon, the parties announced, narrowly heading off a trial shortly after the jury was sworn in.

"Fox has admitted to telling lies," John Poulos, Dominion CEO, said in a press conference after the trial was ended.

"Money is accountability," said Stephen Shackelford, Jr., the attorney scheduled to give opening statements for Dominion on Tuesday.

Fox News also put out a statement.

"We acknowledge the court's rulings finding certain claims about Dominion to be false. This settlement reflects Fox's continued commitment to the highest journalistic standards," the Fox statement said. "We are hopeful that our decision to resolve this dispute with Dominion amicably, instead of the acrimony of a divisive trial, allows the country to move forward from these issues."

The resolution came after the jury had been sat but before opening statements began.

In other words: Fox's lawyer looked at the jury and pegged them as a Democrat Hanging Jury.

...


Dominion sued Fox News in 2021, demanding $1.6 billion in damages. They said the network defamed it when it broadcast baseless claims that it was tied to the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, that it paid kickbacks to politicians and that its machines "rigged" the 2020 presidential election by flipping millions of votes for Trump to Biden.

Meanwhile, leftwing media-protecting judges fall over themselves to dismiss defamation lawsuits against CNN, the New York Times, NBC "News," etc., claiming that factual defamations are "protected opinions."
