Fox Chairman Admitted To Hosts Endorsing False Claims
Rupert Murdoch admitted that some of his top hosts were pushing election lies to his audience.
The chairman of the Fox corporation acknowledged that some Fox News hosts endorsed false claims.
Rupert Murdoch addressed the actions in a legal filing as part of Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.6 billion lawsuit against Fox News.
During his deposition, Murdoch admitted that some of his top hosts were pushing election lies to his audience. He revealed that Sean Hannity, Jeanine Pirro, Maria Bartiromo, and former host Lou Dobbs, all promoted falsehoods about the 2020 presidential contest being stolen.
The company of Fox alleged that its hosts’ on-air assertions about election fraud were taken out of context and said the company itself should not be held liable for the hosts’ claims.
