Fox Corp. chairman’s deposition testimony could prove harmful in voting machine company Dominion’s $1.6 billion lawsuit against the far right media company
Fox Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch acknowledged that Fox News hosts rendered on-air support for former President Donald Trump’s spurious claim that the 2020 national election was bogus, even though they understood this assertion wasn’t supported by any evidence.
“Not Fox, no. Not Fox,” Murdoch said, while testifying in January in a deposition tied to Dominion Voting System’s $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox Corp. “Some of our commentators were endorsing it. They endorsed.”
Murdoch’s answer was in direct response to a question about Fox News personalities Sean Hannity, Jeanine Pirro, Lou Dobbs and Maria Bartiromo.
