As Donald Trump and his inner circle potentially face indictments over their efforts to overturn the 2020 election, Fox News is also in legal hot water for amplifying the same unfounded claims about election fraud. Dominion Voting Systems, which makes voting machines, has sued the conservative cable news outlet for $1.6 billion in a defamation suit that has exposed how top hosts and executives knew they were spreading misinformation but continued to push the conspiracy theories on air. "Fox News, despite its corporate name, is not in fact a news organization," says Chris Lehmann, D.C. bureau chief for The Nation. "What they are doing is promulgating lies for the sake of maintaining audience share and high profitability."
