"Executives to smartmatic. I think smartmatic is gonna be even worse than oh yeah. So they held a hearing on Wednesday after smartmatic, raised concerns about whether Fox was complying with its pre tail obligations to turn over relevant evidence. Because they obviously didn't turn over the Abbey. I kept saying it wrong yesterday. On their phone, so I just feel like this is only going to get worse and worse for Fox. Oh, she's got 90 recordings. From her time there. 90. They had maybe 5 of them or less than ten during the dominion trial that were brought up and used. Smartmatic is going to have access to all of it. She's been subpoenaed. They want all of them because of the redaction tap dance that happened. During the dominion case, smartmatic is an interested because they were strewed out of ever having a nationwide contract from the very beginning. Dominion could sort of recover because they had, they were bigger company, they got more pushback. Smartmatic was effectively killed in the crib as a company because of the actions of Mike pillow and because of Fox News. And so they have a bigger, they can literally look ahead to all the money they could have made as a competitor of dominion and ES and S and going, we were destroyed from the start because of these idiots. I was just thinking of your program. Your brilliant sexy liberal Mike pillow skits. How much do you love speaking of losing? Or just prove me wrong on election fraud, someone's like, okay. Yeah, yeah. By the way, for the record, I did it, too, live on my show. I broke down all that stuff. And absolutely proved it. But I'm not considered a computer expert by Mike pillow's people. So I was disqualified early. But this guy effectively works in IT. Works as a computer programmer. And therefore, because he has the right diploma. He sued right away with the same information that I said by the way. And one $5 million. And Mike refused to pay it. I know. Because he's a fake Christian. He's full of crap. So the other one we're talking about is Disney suing Ron DeSantis immediately after the board appointed by the Republican government voted to nullify two agreements that gave Disney control over its massive complex Disney sued asking court to overturn state efforts to exert control over the company's Walt Disney World theme parks in Orlando. Reuters noted the oh, sorry, that's a different story. No, we were saying unintended consequences of this one, Chris was talking about. He could inadvertently blow up citizens united. Right. I mean, they're just wins, then citizens united is overturned. Right. Right. Exactly. Yes. It's hilarious. Yeah. And what was this what was all this stuff for years about big government telling businesses and individuals what to do? This is the other, this is Paul is going to read Reuters noted a recent poll found a vast majority of Americans will be less inclined to support a candidate who punished the company for a political stance. 73%, including 82% of Democrats 63% of Republicans said they're less likely to support a candidate who backs laws designed to punish a company for its political or cultural stances. Right. I mean yeah, and they've learned nothing. I mean, Twitter, Disney, the whole thing, like, look, the weird part of it is, is that Democrats in particular have found themselves in the site of free speech in its true form, which is if somebody sets up a private endeavor like Twitter or Disneyland, they can set the rules for what goes on in there. And if you don't want to participate, don't get an account on that social media site or leave if it gets too drunk. I love they're using they're using Tucker Carlson's firing as saying that's a violation of the First Amendment of their canceling free speech. I'm like, no, you're free. You're free to call your boss the C word. And then you're also free to get fired. Right. It's like fafo rules everywhere they turn. And yet, there's snowflake harder than anybody during this whole thing. So I mean, I think it's glorious to watch. The hypocrisy is sort of hilarious. There's a ton of irony in this, but they seem blind to it, especially the super free speech advocate folks. Yeah. You know what I mean? It's like, following any of the accounts online that show on Twitter that show like the people get busted, getting busted for child porn and child exploitation and how they're all like Republican youth pastors who all seem to have worked at some point on a Trump campaign in some state somewhere. None of them are drag queens. The irony of it is palpable, but they're not letting go and Marjorie Taylor Greene is grabbing up more land in the Republican space because I love that they aren't willing to be this dumb this often. Whether it's Trump or Tucker Carlson, I love that they try to go. If it could happen to them, it could happen to you. It's like, well, yeah, if you call your boss the seaward and cluster company $2 million. You can always happen. What are you talking about? That's what happened to normal people. We always get fired. We do that kind of stuff. That's the point. The point was it never happened to those folks. The two separate legal systems we had was everybody else has to abide by the law and a few up at the top could get away with it. The Republicans railing against elites is one of the most hilarious turns ever, especially coming from Tucker Carlson, who's the heir to the Swanson frozen dinner fortune, but that Donald Trump could go the elites are coming after me. Tell me you only dodged going to jail years ago because you're quote unquote. An elite. By the way, we always, the Stephanie Miller show of reception, where you can call your boss to see where. And we do. I'm quite regularly, but you have to find a boss with no self esteem. I think an Irish accent. Right. Which makes it. We don't do it three times a day. We're not allowed to come to work. It's like Betelgeuse. 49 minutes. So they are going to get her to come downstairs actually every morning. Okay. It's time. This portion of the show brought to you by my cozy with pajamas and sheath. That's what when you yell, hey, seaward, I come down in my that's to see where does the earth pajamas? That's why not to yell at her 'cause she just stays in bed because her bed so comfy. Yes. The softest sheets in the universe. They are, oh, they come in four awesome new colors. Oprah said yes, please. 5 years in

"Soak in what this means. And if it's dominion related or smartmatic related or, yeah, and why just him, right? Yeah. Unless there's more coming unless this is one of a few. Yeah. All right, so we were talking about polling 18 months out. Everybody's panicking and freaking out. And I just, I mean, you do have to go back historically. Allison, they're always wrong. The polls this far out, they're always wrong. I don't know why everybody now is like, oh my God. Even if he's told, you know, I mean, give me your take on all of it. Yeah, I mean, let's talk about the red wave that was predicted in 2022. And how that never happened. Let's talk about Adam frisch and Lauren boebert coming within a few hundred votes of each other when Nate silver gave him a 2% chance of winning. I don't listen to polls because the polls are wrong. And even in, you know, in 2016, the polls were wrong. We found out the bad way. And so yeah, I really don't listen. Well, especially this far out from an election. But even when we get closer, they were all just consistently wrong. I mean, polls are people who get called on landlines. And no, just no. We need a new polling system, or we just need to stop. But although I'm not too, I like it, though, when everyone's like, totally uncertain, and just has to vote. Yeah. And again, I think they have underestimated women, young people. Give me one more Nancy Pelosi yesterday. Their anti governance, their anti science. So some of the challenges that we have faced health wise with the pandemic, climate issues where science tells us there are certain things we need to do. And governance says, okay, let's make a protections to do that. Two nos do not make a yes for them. Right. They're against science and they're against governments. So this continues. This is who they are. And who better than noted lady part aficionado Lindsey Graham. Just tell the little lady people. What they might have or what they might not have. I think what the court is going to do is send it back for a little more evaluation. But the issue is was the drug of lawfully approved did the FDA follow its own procedures. The chemical abortion safe. So those issues will be decided by the court. The idea of mailing the drug, sending the drug through the mail, runs into a statute called comstock act, the Supreme Court will sort all this out here in the coming months and I'll live with whatever decision they make. Alison guild is to the face palm. Would you like to explain or do you want Amy Klobuchar to go ahead? Look, first of all, it's not the calm stack act. It's the comstock act, but really the old we can't mail sex toys in the mail law. My dildo says different. What? Yeah, I know. Hey, 6 dildos only in Texas. That's right. Wow. If you talking about bringing us back centuries. To rely on that law, it's pretty intense. I hate when I call it chemical abortion to scare you. Can I just say, who's that smarmy mother from New Hampshire? Who was on me the president? Who knew? Are they really still trying this? This is a states rights issue. Haven't they proved that that's not what they're trying to ban it nationwide. This has never been a statement. They never wanted to see. Oh, that's smarmy smile and just like he's a different kind of Republican and chuck Todd. He's like, you picked buddy, see you next week. Just all Republicans make me vomit. Think I'm gonna buy. But they do. He's just someone trying to put another smiley veneer on this when it's just a states right. They have absolutely disproven that. Haven't they? That they wanted this to be about states rights. They want to ban it and they should why for everybody. Totally, yeah. Just inconsistencies after inconsistencies. Alito saying that he didn't want to block it because they didn't meet the criteria for a stay when the original ruling doesn't even meet the criteria for standing. Like just stop with they have a desired outcome and they try to bend the law to get to it. That's all. You were going to say bull. And I thank you for not. It was right there. I saw it. It respects you for that. Yeah. Okay. My back thanks for not having to bend underneath the console again. It won't happen again, Chris. Senator Klobuchar with the assist for AG. Here we go. And I think what you see would senator Graham is bringing up bills from what the comstock act. That is literally passed, Dana, in 18 73. That is ten years before the Yellowstone prequel, okay? That is at a time when healthcare when you were treated for pneumonia through bloodletting. It is back in the ages of the pony express. The American people do not want to go backwards. And what I heard today is that Republican leaders in Washington aren't backing down on their opposition to reproductive freedom. They are doubling down. I love that she said that because that was my first thing. This was back in the times when doctors were like, hey, you got ghosts in your blood. You should do cocaine about it. Yeah. Yes. Is that an exact quote from a pre Yellowstone doctor? Okay. Yeah. You have your period. Here's a leech. That was an episode of doctor Quinn medicine woman, and it was really good. Okay. Can I just skip to 13? Oh my God, if I have to hear this one more time, the Democrats demand abortion until the moment of birth. No, oh my God, okay. For the record, row went up to viability, but I just want to button this up. The quick covering for these guys. No, no, no, your media. You keep coming for these guys. They introduce legislation that allowed abortion on demand with taxpayer funded. Uh, were you paying for it? The taxpayer up to the moment of birth. That was their position in Washington. That's the law they wanted. And nobody in your business will talk about it as far better. Senator, I'm not covering for anybody, and you know that. And when I have Democrats on, and I've had Democrats. I've asked for the fact. I have asked many all of them about their position on where they believe this issue should be. Okay, they know that they're losing on this issue, massively, that 60% of Americans are about think abortion should be legal. They know that that is illegal. No Democrat wants abortion until the moment of birth, Donald Trump does that whole rant about after birth. Like, just then they just decide to kill the baby after it's born. It's like they're just running a lies again. And what's the on demand part? Like, I'm going to order it off with my team. Right. Instacart delivers it. No. Shipped shipped shipped. Yes. You have just really good heart complications this morning. Okay, 50 minutes. I shipped my pants. Okay. 15 minutes after the hour, this portion of the show brought to you by. My mom was socks. Yeah. I gotta be ready for anything with Allison gill. You gotta

"7, your information station sponsored by K two vision RLE. Good evening. Thanks for joining us. I'm Kim shepherd and here's what's happening. The dominion voting systems defamation lawsuit against Fox News settled yesterday for nearly $800 million. John palouse is dominion CEO. He says this isn't the end of it. This was not a matter of our employees being harassed over a day a week a month. It persists to this day. Paul farry is covering this for The Washington Post and spoke with northwest news radios, Frank Lindsay. Let's start with the terms of this settlement beyond the price tag. What does this mean for Fox News and dominion? Well, it doesn't mean much particularly for Fox News other than the money. They don't have to issue an on air apology. They had a sort of grudging acknowledgment in a statement yesterday. But it seems to be business as usual. This settles it, then they move on to a new lawsuit. Very similar lawsuit from another company called smartmatic. That will likely likely be settled as well. And are we talking for similar amounts of money here? Or how would these two compare? Yes, well, smartmatic has asked for 2.6 billion, which is a billion more than what dominion asked for. Damage awards are projection or speculative. You know, who knows what the settlement will be, but given this nearly $800 million settlement, you can expect a pretty large check to be written for Matic as well. Fox also faces undoubtedly a bunch of lawsuits from its shareholders who are probably going to be very upset about how badly handled this whole situation in terms of the reporting in terms of the settlement. So this will go on for probably years before we hear the last of it. Is Fox going to be able to survive this not only financially, but from a credibility standpoint? Yes, in both cases, they will. They've got lots and lots of money. I think Fox chairman Rupert Murdoch has said they had something like $4 billion in reserve from their earnings. And reputationally, it seems that they already have survived it as far as their ratings go. They've had a little dip after the 2020 election. Then the ratings recovered and are just as strong as ever. So their viewers don't seem to mind the perpetual lies about the 2020 election and they've moved on with Fox. That's Paul farre covering the story for The Washington Post here on northwest news radio. And that's our Franklin. County commissioner in Oklahoma has resigned effective immediately in the wake of that recording of the commissioner and other county leaders talking about murdering reporters in lynching black people. ABC's Alex stone reports. The sheriff and mccurdy county has not resigned as Oklahoma governor Kevin stitt has called for. And in fact, the sheriff's department in a post doesn't address a comment, but instead calls into question the validity of the recording and that it was recorded illegally by the newspaper reporter under Oklahoma law. The sheriff's department is indicating felony charges could be involved against those who made the recording but doesn't address a racist comments that were made. Alex stone, ABC News. Last year's baby formula shortage has ended, but the head of the FDA is telling Congress the industry needs inspections. The head of the FDA taking questions on baby formula at a Senate hearing and suggesting the industry could use more policing after last year's contamination caused formula shortage.

The FDA commissioner, doctor Robert califf says baby formula contamination reporting is still for now voluntary. Andy field ABC News Washington.

"This. It's Election Day. Various guests, attorneys and elected officials have appeared on Newsmax and offered opinions and claims about Smartmatic and Dominion systems. Well, companies that offer voting software in the U. S. And Newsmax would like to clarify its news coverage and note that it has not reported as true certain claims made about these companies. There are several facts our viewers and readers should be aware of Newsmax has found no evidence that either Dominion or Smartmatic owns the other or has any business association with each other. We have no evidence that Dominion uses Smartmatic software or vice versa. No evidence has been offered that Dominion or Smartmatic use software or reprogrammed software that manipulated votes in the 2020 election. Smartmatic has stated that its software was on Lee, used in the 2020 election in Los Angeles was not used in any battleground state contested by the Trump campaign News. Max has no evidence to the contrary, Dominion has stated to company has no ownership relationship with the Pelosi family, the Feinstein family, the Clinton family, Hugo Chavez or the government of Venezuela.

Fox News Faces $1.6 Billion Defamation Lawsuit From Dominion Voting Systems
"Billion defamation lawsuit by Dominion Voting Systems. Dominion alleges the network made false claims in an effort to boost its ratings. In early February, Another voting company, Smartmatic sued Fox for $2.7 billion, claiming it made false and defamatory claims Fox has filed for a dismissal of the Smartmatic suit stating it was covering a vigorous debate of profound national importance. Former
Voting Firms Turn To Defamation Lawsuits To Counter False Claims
"And another election Cos. Smartmatic have also filed defamation lawsuits against Trump allies and pro trump media companies with more likely to come. Bill Adair runs the journalism program of Duke University and founded the fact checking website politic Fact, I think this is a completely new Way of tackling misinformation as a journalist. I am I'm a little bit nervous. The idea of using defamation lawsuits makes us a little bit concerned. In particular, he's worried defamation suits could become a weapon against journalists just doing their jobs. But in the current moment, he's come to believe they have a role to play. We need to incentivize truth and we need to de incentivize. Lying money is what matters to AH Media company. Defamation lawsuit is a big way to do that. The suits appear to be having an effect. An anchor for Newsmax walked out on a live interview with the My Pillow CEO when he started making false claims about Dominion voting machines. Can we get out of here, please? But defamation lawsuits are difficult to win. You need to show the person knew or should have known a statement was false when they made it. George Freeman spent three decades defending people against defamation lawsuits as the in house counsel for the New York Times, He says media organizations have a First Amendment right to report on what important people say, even if it may be untrue. But he says the pro trump outlets like Newsmax and away in May have crossed a legal line by amplifying and appearing to endorse obvious falsehoods. They haven't stepped back, although I don't now. Your signs that they're starting to because they're worried about liability, and I think that's a good thing. Still, Freeman thinks the strongest defamation case is against Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. He made certain accusations on TV. But then he didn't make those in court because I think he knew you would be subject to discipline and perjury if you made them an official documents, so that would seem to be pretty good evidence that he knew they were false. Yet there are reasons why defamation cases aren't filed more often. Many conspiracy theories don't target a specific person or company and the cases can take years to go through the courts, so it's likely when the next presidential election begins. These lawsuits about the 2020 election will still be grinding along.

"David Katz is my guest. Okay, David, listen, This is what I wanted to know about this. This thing this case that was being brought against Fox News by Smartmatic. Well, there's two things really, I mean Dominion was one who brought a lawsuit. Smartmatic is one who has brought a lawsuit. It just seems like you should have the basis to sue somebody. If they're saying nasty, vicious mean things about you that have absolutely no basis in fact, And so we've talked about whether or not they're considered public figures I never in my life would have considered them a public figure. I didn't even know Smartmatic existed until I read about this lawsuit. So what's The difference if they are not a public figure. What standard has to be met? Well, a lot of times they look at whether the person or company has injected itself into the public debate. Um, you know, we're all sympathized with the person who has nothing to do with it. It all just shuns publicity, and yet they get dragged into the middle of it. This is some of boxes. Other disasters where they dragged that campaign worker in Washington, D. C, who had been killed. They dragged that sensory controversy and they ended up having to pay. I think it was millions of dollars in that case, family What's different about Smartmatic again? I'm just not sure how it would come out. They are big company. They may be publicly traded. It just may be that they've done enough that they will be subject to the public figure. That doesn't mean that they're going to lose. But it means that there'd be a different standard applied that actual malice showed the Fox and the others showed a reckless disregard for the truth. But it doesn't mean they're going to lose. They could bring in other defamatory statements, the whole campaign against them. It may be relevant as a blood in statements against opinion, which also had no basis to show that they didn't just do it to us. They did it to another company. With the same motive of trying to, you know, buck up a false narrative that Trump had won the election when he decisively lost the election, and when they ran out of courts that all build against them, and they ran out of officials who didn't cower under the intimidation.

"They have to show what's called actual mouth and actual mouse. We hear that expression. It's not the same malice in a homicide case. It's malice, which means that the news media knows that what it's reporting is full. Or actually, what's called a reckless disregard Whether it's false or not. They're gonna argue Smartmatic is that not only did these reporters on Fox News these hosts on Fox News and not only Giuliani and pal What didn't Fox media itself. Fox News itself knew that what it was recording with false or acted with a reckless disregard? Now what Fox says is well, My God, president says something or the president's lawyer says something we reported it. The president and his lawyers can't back it up. It's still news word. But I think that the issue is going to be the Fox do anything to try to back it up to try to present what the facts were, or did they really act with a reckless disregard? Well as the president's lawyer, and these other people were saying whether that was true or not, because if they acted with that reckless disregard Then they really are in trouble. So I think that Fox News eventually is going to settle because I think this case would have some merit. I don't think it's going to be dismissed on what they call summary judgment on this motion to dismiss, but boxers pursuing Pat I think what's going to end up happening is they're going to go to a jury trial, and as soon as they get past the summary judgment or dismissal, Fox is going to settle this case that there's no way they want to be held liable for $2.5 billion in front. It's in New York State case. Smartmatic once a jury trial, and you can show all sorts of things in a jury trial, you can show all the sorts of things that Fox failed to research it. They failed to do anything. The had animus toward the other side. Smartmatic had been one of the you know had counted the votes. But the other great point that Smartmatic had and one reason why. I think Fox is going to study this case, even if it cost them. Tens of millions of dollars is because Smartmatic only counted the vote in L. A county and they went on the air, and they kept presenting this narrative. Ah, lot of it came from Fox. Host. You know, the Fox host didn't just say, Well, that's the president's side of the story. But Dobbs and parole reported was that this was a cyber Pearl Harbor. And they reported one of these drug companies, Smartmatic only other company Dominion, which is not true, so they because of all these false facts, and they gave the impression that this Smartmatic had somehow swung the election. Greg the election in all these states. Morning making count the vote any of those states Martin Attic only counted the votes in L, a county and to not report that on the part of Fox News That's like Fox News knows it's in trouble. So in the aftermath of that, yes, um the Donald's was fired. I think the other people maybe have 2 ft onto banana peels. Um, and I think Fox is going to give it back to where they would be attractions. You know, Pat, they've got all these retractions. They had this off air questioner. And they had some experts say there wasn't really much basis for these claims. But it wasn't really clear that it was a retraction. But I think Fox is going to really try to get this behind them because I think Fox is in a lot of trouble, as well as the host of the shows. And of course, this is just the second round for Giuliani and Powell. They got sued by Dominion a few weeks ago for over two billion. I think it was over one billion. That one was over one billion. This one's over two billion on third. Julianne is letting go out that he had hope They'll take a check anything close to that. So anybody he says in his divorce studio. Nobody keeps telling his wife was still getting divorced, right? I got nothing I got. Nobody got nothing. So s so Fox ad. In their response, they had a 14 page appendix. Under the title. Fox is evenhanded coverage of Smartmatic, and in that, they said, what you just were talking about. Among the examples. They have three identical pretaped fact checking segments that ran in mid December on programs that were hosted by Bartiromo, Dobbs and pure Oh, that featured this election expert who debunked a number the false claims about Smartmatic. But those segments were broadcast after Smartmatic sent a letter to Fox demand. In retractions and threatening legal action. I'm not so sure they didn't continue with their rhetoric after December. I mean, maybe they didn't. But it seems to me that they may have They continued with their rhetoric on Ben. Some of the other stations like Newsmax, you know, they also tried, I think even more emphatically to distance themselves. Because Fox could actually pay a huge award. But I think that these these fledgling stations, the ones that tried to compete with Fox, you know Fox committed the cardinal sin. In the opinion of Trump actually call the area someone election the way the vote went. So Trump lost his mind got furious that Fox encouraged people to watch these other little fledgling stations. Apparently a lot of people to from Fox to the fledgling little stations. Fox lost a lot of their market share pet, and so one of the things that's Martin that it says, is that you guys were just trying to get your market share back by attacking us. That's again part of the malice these air all the fact that they be allowed to present a very trial..

"And Sue Smartmatic. I guess that's like a preemptive counter. So what do you think is going on there? I think he's trying to get ahead of the fact that he is spreading disinformation Spreading lies. This latest quote unquote documentary. That he aired is nothing but the same old, half baked conspiracy theories repackaged and the truth is catching up with him. So Mike Lindell came out with a documentary and it runs up a couple of hours. I understand I've not seen it, but apparently it's been pulled down and I saw like someone sent me a link on one of the social media platforms and I Just kind of briefly looked at him. But he's sitting at a desk and he's saying that he has all this proof that there was there were issues with the Dominion voting system. So Dominion says they may sue Mike Lyndall Smartmatic has come out and they have sued Fox News. They've gone after that, And I just read this morning a headline that Fox News made a motion in court to have this case dismissed. So that battle goes back and forth. Lou Dobbs, who was a you know Uh, on air personality for a long time, both on CNN. And then most recently, Fox News was dropped by Fox News over this because of the allegations that he apparently made against Martin Attic, Right. Well, you can't say you have proof and then not have it right? I mean, and that's what a lot of people have been finding that they're not. They're not convinced by this Proof. So the point being this? Um if you suspected a few months ago that this would get very litigious between these these these companies that make the voting machines and and you know people like Michael until you were absolutely right. They are. It is litigious and it and it's going to drag on in court for quite some time, as is this debate about what took place in the November election. Yeah, it's you know, that's not going away because you look at the polling in the polling is still very consistent. There are a number of people who do not trust what happened. We're not sure what happened. Right? Right. They think something happened. All right, let's get you caught up in your top stories from the National News.

"Here for a moment. A stunning move Fox Business Channel just up and canceled. Lou Dobbs gone now. Couple of points to be made here. Michael Dobbs was their top rated show on the Fox Business Channel. There was some talk, though. That's some advertisers had been bailing on him. And I guess that's the kiss of death. If you're gonna lose out on the advertisers just that the timing is kind of funny because the day before the Smartmatic company came over there $2.7 billion lawsuit against Fox News, Lou Dobbs. Jeannine Pirro, Maria Bartiromo, Rudy Giuliani and all of a sudden the next day Dobbs is gone. Not even a farewell show so strange, strange happenings there, I think Well, I find it odd. I mean, I certainly have no inside scoop on what's going on over Fox. But I have worked for the Rupert Murdoch Murdoch organization for Luis, True onto the post, and it's been my experience working for the Murdochs. That they always defend their people. I mean, you know many, many mainstream media outlets went after the post a number of times attacking the post and Murdoch used to kind of revel in the mainstream media getting upset at places like the post feeling that we were getting under their skin, and he would defend. He defended everybody, but I don't know. Maybe the policy is changing that they would Jettisoned jobs like that. Now, Fox claims that these changes were already in the works before this big lawsuit cames down came down, but I don't have jobs was kind of poking, poking. Ah News Corp the other day in a tweet that he put out So I don't know. I really don't know what's gonna happen. And who knows? Maybe there's gonna be a shift at Fox. But they've got to be careful because places like Newsmax are coming on strong. So some people are disappointed in Fox. They might jump over toe. Newsmax. If Fox is gonna get Newsmax and O A N, uh, s O. Those two networks are picking up some steam. Over Fox. But it's just the Dobbs was just such a such a trump supporter, and he bought the hook line and sinker into this whole election fraud, and he went on every night. Even the president got a mess. Former president got a message out after Dobbs was fired. What a great American Dobbs is and how he's gonna be missed, and he looks forward to his next venture, but It just seemed that the timing seemed awfully strange the day after this major lawsuit, and there's some people who think this lawsuit has some teeth, I don't know. I think Don't you have to prove intent? But who knows? But this lawsuit of the 2.7 billion over Smartmatic some. Some lawyers were saying this has some teeth. It may possibly have teeth but gives me a little pause here because I do hear the mainstream media that people who absolutely hate Fox. They're taking a great deal of glee. In this lawsuit, they say, You know, if you can't censor Fox, as they would like to do, let's punish Fox. Let's punish them by suing them. Well, you know, you can turn the tables on people. How would how would the mainstream media feel if the New York Times Said something that a lot of people did not believe to be true. And the New York Times was sued about it. I think you'd be hearing a lot of people, the mainstream media screaming, You know this. These lawsuits have will have a chilling effect on freedom of the press and freedom of speech, but as long as his half assed long as it's after Fox, they seem to be cheering it on. So I think the less one I'm a little trouble. I'm a little troubled by this because, you know, I know Lou Dobbs was kind of out there on the on the election thing, But, um, I watched Lou Dobbs every night and I thought it was important because If I were the only watch the major network news, which I do every night I watch ABC. I don't get the real story. You know there is there is another side to the news coverage, and it's really slanted. It's all one way for the major networks. So I It's imperative on my part to watch alternative news. And Dobbs was an alternative choice for me know, so I get both sides and, you know, I think people who are watching only one of the major networks for getting a warped view of the story. Well, The problem I have is that the story was totally made up. I mean, the craziness that they did about Smartmatic and Dominion Voting machines, and Hugo Chavez and the Chinese They just made these things up and passed it off his news and and it all came from the top. I mean, it came from Donald Trump. But can you just go on the air and say Patently false stuff under the guise of freedom of the press? I mean well, Rachel Rachel Maddow one on her show every night and talked about how Trump was essentially a spy for the Russians. Every night night after night, 20 minute monologues about Russian collusion. There was nothing there that Yeah, that doesn't count. That doesn't count. I'm not saying it doesn't count. But here you're taking on cos the Dominion and smartmatic, our wheel companies that are being hurt by these lies. Um it's a different kind of issue. No, let's go. Let's go to the will go into court, and we'll see if there's any. I'm curious. How is gonna pretend I was gonna play out? Michael used if if they get somewhere here, you're going to see more and more companies really kind of companies that lean left or goaded on by the mainstream media going after conservative outlets to try to sue them to shut them up, That's gonna be that's gonna be thinking you might be missing the point of it here. The point is that these air companies, Dominion and Smartmatic work Cos that people were lying about Night in and night out, and Yeah, if you're a company that's being lied about you're gonna get pissed off..

"Helped stoke the fire of the big line in over June, July time frame. And it was. It was continued called a spark, and then they just piled more tender on top. Former President Trump did this repeatedly before and after the election. His attorneys gave voice to noxious conspiracy theories, some of which made it into rapidly dismissed lawsuits. Others they simply saved for credulous or spineless media outlets. The moment that always sticks with me. Was immediately after I was like all of my position. This was in mid November, and you had a number of campaign attorneys employees off the Trump for president campaign at the RNC headquarters. There should never be another election conducted in this country. I don't care if it's for local dogcatcher using a Dominion machine and Smartmatic software. We have got to have an American company that uses paper ballots that we can all verifies. So every one of us can see that our vote is our vote. Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, Jen, Alice, and I think at the time I said it was the most dangerous and possibly craziest hour 45 minutes of Of television in American history, and you look where it went from there that to me from there. It was only a matter of time with additional whipping up of the supporters that we were gonna end up in a absent some intervention end up with January.

"I'm Lulu Garcia Navarro on Fox News. They talk a lot about so called cancel culture when someone is ostracized for a transgression well Now it is one of the former president Trump's greatest boosters who has gotten canceled from his Fox business network show. Very little explanation was given. But it happened just a day after a voting tech company sued Fox, Dobbs and two other Fox News stars for $2.7 billion that's with a B NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik has been covering this and joins us now. Welcome. Hey, Lulu. Is this a cancelation David, or sacrifice? Well, you know, it's not about ratings. He's one of the top figures that the Fox business Network What Fox says is a look back in October. We told people there'll be changes coming after the elections. This is part of that. It's just hard to credit it. In fact, nobody I've talked to inside Fox other than their officials or outside Fox. Give that any credence at all the day before it's you mentioned big lawsuit from Smartmatic. It's of voting tech. Company filed the lawsuit against Fox against Lou Dobbs against two of his colleagues Maria Bartiromo and Jeannine Pirro. And against two of the president's lawyers, who have appeared frequently on those shows. Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell remind us what the lawsuit alleges. Dobbs did. Smartmatic says that these figures wanted Trump to win and, in fact said so repeatedly on the air, but that they knew he had lost fairly and squarely in the November election. So they essentially bound together in a conspiracy to make completely false claims about this election being stolen from former President Donald Trump. Here's a feel for the kind of thing Rudy Giuliani was saying on. Dobbs is Fox show. In this case in an appearance in mid November, so we're using a foreign company that is owned by Venezuelans, who were close to Chavez are now close to Maduro. It was founded as a company to fix elections. They have a terrible record, and they are extremely happy able. I mean to be clear, David. None of that is true. Actually. Beyond that, it's completely fabricated. Right. This was not founded by Venezuelans who are close to the late Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez. There's no not known history of it being founders country to fix a rig elections on they have pretty good record. In fact, if you think about the 2020 elections in some ways, the key fact is just that, Smartmatic says, And there's been no proof. Otherwise, Smartmatic says it's on Lee was involved in elections in Los Angeles County, a single jurisdiction in a state that was going to go for Joe Biden anyway. So there were a lot of specific false claims and lives in service of a big lie that jobs and you knows his colleagues give great credibility to an amplified an affirmation for and throughout that interview that clip that we took in that interview. You didn't hear any tough questions any press back in Dobbs interview with Giuliani's claims. So how is Fox News likely to argue this in court? So Fox ran this awkward, brief segment that appeared on all three shows with a nonpartisan voting software expert named Eddie Perez, in which he was asked specific questions about about Smartmatic that denied a lot of these specific allegations. The network is pointed this segment as ah, fact check as those somehow that gets them off the hook. It's hard to believe any viewers would have been able to make any sense of what it was talking about. I think Fox is going to lean heavily on the idea of Hey, this was opinion. They beat back a lawsuit against Tucker Carlson by saying You can't literally believe anything, he says. And the judge in that case, agreed. You are a long time Fox watcher. What does this say about where Fox News is? Right now? I think it's a testament to the size and gravity of the lawsuit. It could confront force Fox to confront the violence. It's done to the facts here, which has never been willing to do. It just had to pay tens of millions of dollars to settle another lawsuit about a false story about a slain Democratic aide. But it didn't apologize or explain to the public. That's what a real North organization does when it gets something really wrong and apologize and explains exactly what it got wrong and how it went wrong. Fox had real reporters. But that's not the point of the network. It doesn't operate like a real news organization. The question is, will this lawsuit forced it to confront The falseness that it's been purveying with real harm for lo these many weeks. That's MPR's David Folkenflik. Thank you very much. You bet. More than 100..

"Like one a month, Right? Really? What? But, you know, there's a progression. You know how far you could take it before the real Yeah. Legal stuff is gonna happen. Oh, yeah. You would not normally By the time we got a cease and desist letter it was after they tried calling. Maybe sitting email the season desist letter was like, okay, we're really, really serious. Stop playing that music. Yeah, because when you have a cease and desist letter, that means you are those air billable hours for a law firm, So, in other words, money is being spent. It's real. At that point, it can be serious, and it gets more progressively serious. So when you see Lou Dobbs actually being taken off the air, there were a lot of things which transpired. Long before that point, and I have a sneaking suspicion, which is usually common with radio and TV internally that Lou Dobbs was taken aside before this moment and said, Hey, we're getting these letters. We think you need to pull back. We think you need to be cool about what you're saying about smart Smartmatic and not saying certain things which give us greater legal exposure, And he just ignored that because legal will tell you in a heartbeat, whether there's legal exposure for the things that you're doing. In other words, Luke could not claim ignorance. And he still kept going, which led to the lawsuit, and when it's $2.7 billion, that is what I call a company killer because whoever is suing they do not have to settle. They don't have to say they don't have to accept the amount of money. It's like, No. We want to take this to court and from everything I've read and seen, and all the evidence is public in nature causes. Video. It is very credible if you know that they were sent a letter in December. Yeah, well, this is that they were sent a few letters to lose Dobbs for having Rudy Giuliani on Right and away in and Newsmax started doing retractions, making some apologies. They started pulling back. That's that process where it didn't happen overnight. They give you a chance to make it right and do the right thing. Weigh in and news, Max. Pull back. New jobs kept going further, and then they dropped the hammer. And from what I see $2.7 million is a monetary mount, but they're not specifically looking for the money. This is about making reputations hole. They felt that they've damaged their business and that's we're going to try to prove in court. So they want the on air Apologies. The retractions they wanna be may hold in an image sense. Fox is saying, Okay, Lou has been defiant up until this point. We're going to pull him off the air now, so he can't necessarily make bad matters worse, because clearly he was not listening to the legal department. Because this was avoidable and when he gets to this point It's not about free speech. We've had this discussion so many times. It's not about cancel culture. This is straight up and down business. There is a credible defamation lawsuit. Sitting on Fox is death were for their hosts and the network writ large are named defendants. $2.7 billion. This is about the survival. Fox News as we know it, and it's not enough to say we'll just write him a check. No, because they want more than a chick they want. Restitution is forest, an apology and retractions. And it's going to be both snot could be just apology, not just a retraction. There's going out because they can prove damage because the name Smartmatic in and other lawsuit Dominion have been harmed and injured. And so when you go on and have your conversations about Lou Dobbs, remember, there were a whole bunch of steps in between that I guarantee you were happening long before Fox turned around and said, Lou, You're not going on the air tonight. It just will happen when the lawsuit hits that just made it official because they were probably arguing with him left and right to turn it down to tune it to pull it back prior to that lawsuit dropped because they did not want even to have to go through the legal hassle off fighting it. And now it's here. And I suspect that there will be other people who will be let go at Fox and Newsmax. Because of this $2.7 billion is Is more money than I think than most people understand. When it comes to a corporation. There's no way around it. This is the Mo Kelly show. Okay. If I am 6 40 were life everywhere on the I heart radio app and the Democrats.

Uh, because of the fact that Giuliani and a lot of other pope folks Accused the the machine company, the voting machine company of engaging in the voter fraud that occurred they claimed occurred in the last election. And how strong of a case does Dominion have? Good morning, Jack. It looks like from what I've seen. The Dominion has a Laid out a pretty strong case in this instance Um You know, in these types of cases when you have public figures or issues of public concern involved, one of the biggest obstacles of plane it's gonna have to overcome is alleging. And proving actual malice by clearing convincing evidence, which is a really tough burden. But if you look through what what Dominions laid out and their complaint here, they don't really, really good job. Probably being able to do enough to get over that burden of showing that, um Rudy Giuliani knew what he said was false or acted recklessly with regard to whether it was true or false. What are some of the key issues here that are gonna come to toe light here? We're gonna have some some very interesting. Back and forth at the pleading stage. A lot of it involving that actual malice standard that I was talking about and whether or not you can overcome that obstacle because in First Amendment cases Courts always lean in favor of protecting people's free speech rights, and it's there just really hard cases for a planet to get by. And if the men you can get past that obstacle, which, based on what I've seen, I think they will. You know, at that point you're getting into discovery and discovery is going to focus a lot here on the truth or falsity. Of what? You know what Mr Giuliani and a bunch of other people have said, And really what you're talking about. There is the truth or falsity of the election fraud claims. So, you know, if this case goes all the way to the end, you could have a judge's summary judgment or a jury deciding whether or not these election fraud claims are true or false. Which you know is really the key issue that is on a lot of people's minds. Right now that's gonna be the big issue, And if there was ever a case that's going to go to the higher courts, I think this one's gonna be the one Yeah, I definitely could, and you know there's a lot of stuff that we're doing. You mentioned a Sarah Palin case, one of the issues that came up and that was the actual malice standard itself, and Judge Judge Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court has is questioned that standard because it is such a high obstacle for people to overcome. And whether or not it applies in an age where everybody's you know, on social media, and you know, toe wanted center. Another, everyone has become a public figure. And you could make an argument that everybody when they're the same task to satisfy this standard. Um, you know, it's it's going to bring up some really Key legal issues like that as well. Some privileges because, you know Rudy Giuliani's acting as an agent, um, of the president, who you know, is a political figure who's making statements. So there's there's just a ton of legal issues that could find their way moving all the way up to the Supreme Court.

We're part of a major conspiracy or part of major effort. It's not those three stars aren't by accident there. Three of the president's most stalwart supporters and advocates on Fox News on in the nation, they they support him off the air as well in conversations and that, along with Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, they made the argument that Smartmatic was part of a vast conspiracy in key states across the country. Think Arizona's think Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin to steal the election from President Trump. This is completely unfounded, baseless and to give you just a small insight into how crazy it is, is an allegation. Smartmatic was involved in exactly one area, the United States in these elections and providing software and support and that was in Los Angeles County in the state that was going to go for Joe Biden. No matter what happened s so they have said that as a result of Deeks repeated allegations on Fox News.

The Fox news anchors that you mentioned these air like household names. Rudy Giuliani, a household name. Have any of these people responded yet. Giuliani says he welcomes to suit me welcomes discovery That's the process by which you get information from the other side in the litigation, Fox News says. It's meritless. It's also saying it's proud of its coverage that they've offered full context with in depth reporting and clear opinion. That's their official statement. I think that that word opinion is important here. I think they're intending to Lean on that to say, Look, we've got clear delineation from their reporting on election results and from people who are offering just their own points of view. $2.7 billion is no small amount of money, although I don't really know much about Fox is bottom line. Could this have a real impact on Fox News? Well, they make a ton of money. That's more than any years profits they've ever made to my understanding. But you know the implications here are Are there any consequences for the kinds of misinformation disinformation that.
