Fox News lawyers throw Trump under the bus

The recent settlement of $787.5 million between Fox News and Dominion Voting Systems has shed light on the network's legal defense strategy, which was to blame former President Donald Trump and his allies for the false claims made about Dominion during the 2020 US election. In court documents filed just before the trial was set to begin, lawyers for Fox News argued that Trump's own rhetoric about the election being rigged against him with Dominion's involvement was the primary inspiration for the network's allegedly defamatory claim. This legal defense is similar to the argument made by many of the January 6th rioters, who claimed that they were simply following Trump's lead. Fox lawyers have previously argued in court that hosts like Tucker Carlson are entertainers rather than journalists, and therefore cannot be held legally accountable for everything they say on air. This defense strategy no doubt has upset the former president and he’ll be ready to use it in his next attack against the network.
