Fox and friends confront billion-dollar US lawsuits over election fraud claims | Fox News | The Guardian

Protesters outside the Fox News headquarters in New York. Media and legal experts believe Fox could be in trouble in the Dominion case.

Rightwing networks Fox News, OAN and Newsmax could be found liable in cases brought by voting machine company Dominion

There seemed to be little consequence for peddling the most outrageous ideas on primetime.

But now, unfortunately for Fox News, One America News Network (OAN), and Newsmax, it turns out that this brave, new world wasn’t free from legal jurisdiction – with the three networks now facing billion-dollar lawsuits as a result of their baseless accusations.
