Rupert Murdoch, the chairman of Fox Corporation, has admitted under oath that Fox News hosts were promoting election lies, according to recent court documents released in the Dominion Voting Systems defamation lawsuit against the network. Murdoch confirmed in a deposition last month that false election claims were promoted by top Fox News hosts, including Jeanine Pirro, Lou Dobbs and Sean Hannity. Murdoch said that in hindsight, he would have liked Fox News to be stronger in denouncing the 2020 election lies and that he himself doubted Trump's conspiracy theories right away. The court documents also revealed Murdoch helped the Trump campaign by providing Biden television ads to Jared Kushner before they ran on Fox. Although the lawsuit could be significantly consequential for Fox News, the impact is unlikely to be substantial as the network is likely to continue to lie and appeal to the lowest common denominator of the American right wing.
