We look at the historic settlement reached this week in Dominion Voting Systems's lawsuit against Fox News for promoting lies about voting machines being rigged against Trump in the 2020 election. Fox repeatedly aired conspiracy theories even though some of the network's most prominent hosts, including Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, as well as billionaire Fox Corporation chair Rupert Murdoch, were privately admitting they knew Trump's election fraud claims were false. Earlier this week, shortly after a jury was picked for the trial, Fox News agreed to pay Dominion $787.5 million to settle the case. As part of the deal, Fox was not required to apologize for airing lies about Dominion. We look at the settlement and what is next with Angelo Carusone, president of Media Matters, which recently filed a Federal Elections Commission complaint against Fox News based on evidence from the Dominion lawsuit.
