    1. Each on-air personality needs also to be sued personally. They can turn the tables right back to Murdock. Reduce him to the trailer trash most of his viewers seem to be.

    1. Don’t be so quick to thank the judge. It will be the jury that gets to decided on what the settlement will be and based one what Rupert said the jury could double or even triple the amount. If that happens it will be like sweet music to my ears.
      Then the Smartmatic lawsuit against Fo࿕ for $2.7 Billion will begin and they too will be able to double, triple or more. Oh how glorious that will be. This could cost Fo࿕ Propaganda over $10 billion by the time this is all said and done.

    1. @Joan Sutton I’d like to thank McCarthy for releasing the Jan.6 tapes so now democrats will all see Trump is innocent, REeeeeeee will be herd all around America once dems. find out their party has been lying this whole time. Don’t be scared the truth is great for America

    2. @Upper 90 Again listening to the right wing propaganda channel that is Fox….this is the conclusion many of their viewers believe….again its a pack of lies! As Obama said “If I was a Fox viewer I wouldn’t vote for me”

    1. Rupert Murdoch has been self professed King Maker and King Breaker for 60 years..70 years.. on 3 Continents. Rupert Murdoch is a thoroughly disgusting Human Being.

    1. Exactly. We knew this. Just as we know rump KNEW he lost. He’s not really questioning the results, just lying. The “questioning” is all for show.

    1. @Bryan Jackson Which ever the real truth is now going the bite him. There is enough in what was said for a jury to find Fo࿕ guilty and award Dominion double or triple what Dominion was asking for. This will ciertainly impact Smartmatic’s case against Fo࿕ which could also be double or triple what they are asking. In the end truth could cost Fo࿕ over $10 billion.

    2. @B. T. Hopefully there will be no ‘Fox’ to control … Murdoch has a history of shutting down entities with a blackened history… He will do it in a heartbeat…No compunction at all… Minimum there should be a ban on Fox using the word ‘News’ to describe any of their programmes…

  1. The way you get to the top is to make sure you always have lackeys to throw under the bus. The way you stay on top is to make sure that the bus is also full of lackeys.

  2. He’s knowingly done a lot of damage to humanity , with his time on Earth – money or as he said , “green” . Exposing his values

    1. Never assume Murdoch is telling the truth… Under oath or not.. Murdoch has his reasons for the narrative he chooses..And it has nothing to do with the Truth..or abiding by any Legal Oath.

  3. “This is really shocking stuff!”

    No. No, it’s not. “Shocking” implies surprise. If you are surprised that these guys lied knowingly or that they would be stupid enough or arrogant enough to leave a writen down trail, I have a bridge to sell you.

  4. People lost their lives indirectly as a result of Tucker Carlson.. the Buffalo shooter, while deranged on his own, wouldn’t have went down the rabbit hole that led him to atrocity.. if this wasn’t allowed.. i want these people in prison..

    1. It used to have what’s called the Fairness Doctrine, but was abolished in the 80s for reasons that it was in opposition to the 1st amendment. There have been debates for reinstating it in some form since.

    2. Unless that truth is one you don’t like right. Russia helping Trump has been exposed as a lie and you’re still here Hunters Laptop wasn’t Russian disinformation according to HUNTER and you’re still here. CNN rips Trump for going to Ohio and Biden still hasn’t bothered to do so Buttigrig told the people the water was safe to drink 2 weeks before it was tested and it turned out it won’t be safe to drink for years and CNN says nothing AND YOURE STILL HERE. Your righteous indignation against lying media is sickening.

  5. Thank you, GOP! You’re helping everyone see how lost the Nazi, I mean MAGA, I mean republican party truly is. Keep it up!

  6. For the life of me, I cannot comprehend how so few of these serious allegations get challenged in a COURT OF LAW! Surely there must be some way of having at least some of those allegations put to the test, and if found to be baseless and defamatory or otherwise harmful, then whoever has been making (or spreading) such allegations gets held accountable. Isn’t that the whole point of having laws against defamation, hate speech, libel, credible threat, incitement to violence, or other forms of harmful speech???

    If there’s any lesson to be learned from past waves of lynchings, pogroms, inquisitions and witch trials, it’s that such false allegations can spread like wildfire among the intellectually vulnerable and the fearful masses if left unchallenged and unchecked.
