"They All Knew": Media Matters Files FEC Complaint That Fox News Broke Election Laws, Lied for Trump

A number of bombshell revelations about the inner workings of Fox News have come to light as part of a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems against the network. Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Fox News, has admitted under oath that many hosts on his network "endorsed" Donald Trump's false claims about the 2020 election for financial, not political, reasons, stating, "It is not red or blue, it is green." In court filings, Dominion also revealed that Murdoch had given Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner confidential information about Biden's campaign ads and debate strategy in possible violation of election laws. Our guest, Angelo Carusone, is president of the watchdog group Media Matters for America, which recently sent a Federal Elections Commission complaint against Fox News based on evidence from the Dominion lawsuit. "All the way from Rupert Murdoch on down to the show producers, they knew what they were saying was not true, that it was actually a lie, and they did it anyway," says Carusone.
