Glad someone is finally sticking it to them.




Dominion had argued that Fox Corporation should also be part of the litigation because its two most senior executives, Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch, played “a direct role in participating in, approving and controlling” statements that fed false perceptions of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

In a decision, Judge Eric M. Davis of Delaware Superior Court said Dominion had “adequately pleaded” facts supporting its claim that Fox Corporation was “directly liable” for what Fox News put on the air. He reasoned that the Murdochs were widely known to have a hand in shaping Fox News coverage. Judge Davis also said it was reasonable to infer that Fox Corporation had “participated in the creation and publication of Fox News’s defamatory statements.”

I think this is the right move. The thing is, if they win a lawsuit, they’ll claim it’s vindication and a “victory for free speech and a free press”. If they lose, they’ll just use it as fuel for their right-wing base of loons. “They’re trying to silence us! There’s a coordinated effort among the radical left to criminalize different points of view!”

Meanwhile, these motherfuckers (pardon my language) are literally overturning constitutional rights, with their eyes set on more.
