Fox News Axes Investigative Unit Following Dominion Voting Systems Settlement

Rupert Murdoch One month after firing its most prominent host and election fraud peddler Tucker Carlson — and settling a defamation lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems for $787.5 million — the network is reportedly dissolving its investigative unit and laying off reporters.

“The rank and file journalists are getting let go,” one Fox employee told Rolling Stone in an article published Friday. “Meanwhile, upper management are sitting pretty while they are the execs responsible for the Dominion debacle. We are the sacrificial lambs.”

Judge dismisses Trump lawsuit against NYT

The $100m (£79m) lawsuit accused the newspaper and Mr Trump's estranged niece, Mary Trump, of "an insidious plot" to obtain his tax records.

It was filed in 2021 and relates to a Pulitzer Prize-winning series on Mr Trump's financial affairs.

On Wednesday, Judge Robert Reed said the claims in the lawsuit "fail as a matter of constitutional law".

Text messages that helped lead Fox News to part ways with star host Tucker Carlson included one in which he declared that Trump supporters beating a protester was "not how white men fight," according to The New York Times.

The text was one of a trove of messages from Carlson and other Fox News hosts uncovered in a defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems against the network for airing false allegations that the company's machines were used to steal the 2020 election from former President Donald Trump.

The sides settled just as the trial was getting underway, with Fox agreeing to pay Dominion nearly $800 million.While some of Carlson's texts have been publicly released, the one quoted by NYT remains redacted by the court. Media organizations, including The Associated Press, continue to try to lift the redactions.

Joe Biden didn’t hold back his swipes at Fox News and its recently “finished” host Tucker Carlson during a White House Correspondents’ Association dinner speech on Saturday.
The president made several sharp quips about a number of Republicans — including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.), Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) — as he also found time to take aim at Carlson just days after his surprise firing at the network.

“The truth is, we really have a record to be proud of: vaccinated the nation, transformed the economy, earned historic legislative victories and midterm results. But the job isn’t finished, I mean, it is finished for Tucker Carlson,” Biden said as the D.C. crowd gasped.

“Bitik unfortunately did not make it and died: he leaves behind his wife and a son. Corrado, who was wounded in the shoulder, is in the civil hospital in Kherson,” it said.

Zunino, who had extensively covered the conflict, told La Repubblica he had been wearing a bulletproof vest with “press” written on it when the reporters were attacked.

Tucker Carlson fired

Conservative Fox News host Tucker Carlson will no longer host his high-profile talk show and his last show was Friday, the company announced in a news release, the week after a nine-figure settlement from the company in a lawsuit related to the 2020 presidential election.

The release said the two parties "have agreed to part ways." A rotating panel of people will host Fox News Tonight, the release said.

The news of Carlson's departure comes the week after Fox News settled a defamation lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems over its hosts' spreading of disinformation about the company.

Critics of Fox News - and of Trump - rejoiced over the news. "After all Tucker’s lies and defamation, it’s about time," tweeted former Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., a member of the Jan. 6 investigative committee.
