Fox News seeks to silence one of its own over $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit

Fox News silences Abby Grossberg

Fox News sought a restraining order against one of its own senior producers on Monday to prevent her from publicly disclosing information linked to the $1.6 billion defamation claim it is fighting over falsehoods it broadcast after the 2020 presidential election.

Abby Grossberg, the senior producer in charge of booking guests for star Tucker Carlson, told Fox last month she intended to sue the network for discrimination and retaliation, according to Fox's lawsuit.

Fox alleges it was compelled to sue her to prevent the disclosure of its legal stratagems.

"Ms. Grossberg has threatened to disclose FOX News Media's attorney-client privileged information and we have filed a temporary restraining order to protect our rights," the network said in a statement.

Fox chair Murdoch in filings says 2020 election 'not stolen'

Murdoch said 2020 election was fairFox Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch said under oath that he believes the 2020 presidential election was free, fair and not stolen, according to court filings released Tuesday in a voting machine company’s defamation lawsuit over Fox News’ coverage of former President Donald Trump’s false election fraud claims.

In sworn questioning in January by lawyers for Dominion Voting Systems, Murdoch was asked, “Do you believe that the 2020 presidential election was free and fair?"

“Yes,” he replied, according to a transcript.

“The election was not stolen,” he said later.

The transcript and other material released Tuesday expand on earlier disclosures that paint a portrait of behind-the-scenes doubt — or outright dismissals — of Trump's voting fraud claims, even as the network gave them airtime. In excerpts of Murdoch's questioning released earlier, he acknowledged that he didn’t stop various Fox News commentators from promoting baseless claims from Trump allies that the election was stolen, even though he could have.

Dems want to cut Fox off after lawsuit revelations

The thunderclap of stories showing Fox News’ role in pushing 2020 election fraud conspiracies and aiding Donald Trump’s campaign has intensified calls among Democrats to black out the network.

The revelations, made public as part of a $1.6 billion lawsuit brought against Fox by Dominion Voting Systems, showed that some network hosts and executives endorsed lies about Trump’s loss, hosted conspiracy theorists whom they thought were unhinged, and overtly prioritized the company’s profit over truth. A related deposition of the media empire’s chair, Rupert Murdoch, revealed that he shared private intel about Joe Biden’s campaign TV ads and provided debate strategy with top Trump advisers.

Rupert Murdoch says some Fox News anchors ‘endorsed’ false election fraud claims in Dominion case

Rupert MurdochFox Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch said some anchors of the company’s TV networks parroted false fraud claims in the months following the 2020 election, according to new court papers out Monday.

In new filings as part of Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox and its networks, Murdoch said he doubted the election fraud claims being aired on Fox News and Fox Business Network.

Murdoch also acknowledged that Fox’s TV hosts endorsed the false election fraud claims. In unveiled question and answers from Murdoch’s deposition, when Murdoch was asked if he was “now aware that Fox endorsed at times this false notion of a stolen election,” Murdoch responded, “Not Fox,“Some of our commentators were endorsing it,” Murdoch said in his responses during the deposition.

“They endorsed.”. Not Fox. But maybe Lou Dobbs, maybe Maria [Bartiromo] as commentators.”
