There is now a defamation case pending against Fox News and Fox Corporation, the parent company of Fox News, for the amount of $1.6 billion.

The lawsuit alleges that Fox News and Fox Corporation intentionally pushed false allegations about the Colorado-based corporation Dominion Voting Systems and its role in the 2020 presidential election.

Dominion is suing Fox for damages after the latter broadcast false allegations that the voting system maker was implicated in massive election fraud.

The company is demanding compensation for the damage that was done to the company's reputation as well as its operations.

In a filing for Dominion Voting System's $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox, allegations surfaced regarding internal communications and a deposition with Murdoch.

Media Matters filed this lawsuit claiming that private information regarding campaign strategy, advertising, and messaging should be considered a contribution by the FEC.

Although there are exemptions for media companies, Media Matters argues that Fox Corporation was not acting as a press entity when Murdoch provided the Committee with the Biden advertisements.

  • It is important to note that campaign finance laws ban corporations from contributing to political candidates.

Dominion's filings contained numerous damaging revelations about Fox's coverage of the 2020 presidential election, including the sharing of confidential campaign information.

Despite privately disparaging them, Murdoch allegedly acknowledged that Fox hosts gave a platform to conspiracy theorists and propagated false allegations of election rigging.
