Jake Tapper said:
Fox is trying to put a positive face on what could be described as one of the ugliest and most embarrassing moments in journalism history. Fox issued a statement saying, “Uh, we’re glad to be able to resolve our disagreement.” Disagreement with Dominion’s voting systems. We credit the court’s rulings with proving that some of Dominion’s claims are false. \\
The settlement reflects sorry. This will be difficult to say directly. This settlement reflects Fox’s continued commitment to high journalistic standards. We just hope we apologize. We hope our decision to settle the dispute with Dominion amicably rather than a divisive trial. It allows the country to move on from these issues.
Fox is trying to spin this, but the bar for proving defamation is so high that Fox’s settlement is to plead guilty. There should have been a good chance that Fox News would have lost the defamation suit.
Dominion’s settlement is not the end of Fox News’ defamation problems.
Choice Technology Company Smart He is suing Fox News for $2.7 billion, and in response to Dominion’s settlement, he said, “Dominion’s litigation has exposed some of the harm and damage caused by Fox’s disinformation campaign. Smartmatic exposes the rest.
No one believes what Fox News is trying to sell. Jake Tapper can’t keep a straight face when trying to report on him and the problems are just beginning for Fox.
