Ten days after the 2020 election, Fox ‘News’ employees met in their so-called ‘Brain Room’ to discuss numerous conspiracy theories that Dominion Voting Systems had rigged the presidential election against TFG. In a nutshell, they acknowledged the fact-checking and research division of the network knew TFG’s claims of a rig and and fraudulent election were false, they chose to air Fake News about the “Big Lie” anyway.
Initially, Fox ‘News’ redacted slides Dominion presented at last week’s pretrial hearing in its $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News and its parent company, Fox Corp, but a judge ordered them on Tuesday to be made public.

Judge to Fox News: Don’t make me ‘look like an idiot’ over Rupert Murdoch testifying
The Delaware judge overseeing a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News on Tuesday did not seem to buy the argument that founder Rupert Murdoch was too infirm to testify at trial next month.
The judge told Fox’s attorneys not to make him “look like an idiot.”
The remarks came at the outset of a pre-trial hearing when Judge Eric M. Davis noted that he previously had received a letter stating that the 92-year-old Murdoch “couldn’t travel” to the trial in Delaware because of COVID.
“I also have people telling me that he’s done some things recently that [show] he’s hardly infirm,” Davis said, noting that Murdoch had recently announced his engagement to be married for the fifth time and plans to travel between his homes in Los Angeles, Montana, New York and London.
