Nothing like a lawyer chewing on you to get to the ‘truth’….

A court filing made public late Thursday shows top executives at Fox News and leading hosts on the network privately dismissing former President Trump’s claims of voter fraud in the days that followed the 2020 presidential election, expressing worry about how fact checks of the president’s assertions might upset the network’s audience.
Top network hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham in text messages referred to the voter fraud allegations made by Trump and his associates as “insane” while network leadership debated how rebuking those claims on the air might hurt the conservative media giant’s reputation with its viewers, according to the filing….
Fox, in legal filings and public statements, has countered that the president’s allegations about voter fraud were newsworthy but has, so far, unsuccessfully moved to have the case dismissed on First Amendment grounds.

The correspondence and testimony made public this week, some of which was redacted and first reported by The New York Times, provides the most detailed accounting yet of how top brass at the nation’s leading cable news channel struggled to cover election fraud claims being put forth by the president of the United States and his allies in the weeks after the election.
“Sidney Powell is lying by the way. I caught her. It’s insane,” Carlson wrote in one text message to Ingraham, the court filing shows.
“Sidney is a complete nut. No one will work with her. Ditto with Rudy [Guliani],” Ingraham responded….

They like lying.
It’s all they do.
And the like their leaders to be crooks…

I like this description of Fox “News”….
“A Republican SuperPAC masquerading as a news network.”
The suit peels off the ‘truth’ that even the Fox talking heads were smart enough to know the truth…..
Fox should settle this……
