Fox News is under “financial death penalty,” according to former prosecutor

According to former lawyer and MSNBC legal expert Katie Phang, Fox News might face the “financial death penalty” as a result of Dominion Voting Systems’ defamation case.

Phang cautioned that the “real cost” of the voting machine company’s operations might be significantly greater than the $1.6 billion in compensatory damages it is requesting in an opinion article that was published over the weekend.

In the case of the aforementioned case, the aforementioned case was a case where the aforementioned case was the aforementioned case. Fox is accused of regularly spreading untruths and lies. And the outcome can be a monetary death sentence for the network,” stated Phang, an ex-prosecutor with more than 25 years of expertise. “Those at Fox News reportedly knew the channel was routinely spreading lies, as we have seen put forth in the hundreds upon thousands of pages of evidence disclosed during the discovery process in this lawsuit. Yet it was indifferent.

Because, according to the lawsuit, earnings were more essential, Phang noted that Fox Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch was focused with appeasing former President Donald Trump and keeping Trumpsters.

Dominion has requested the judge presiding over the case to rule in its favour before the case goes to trial next month, according to Phang. Dominion is the voting software company and is “armed with thousands of pages of texts and internal chats and emails by and between Fox hosts, producers and executives,” he wrote.

The former prosecutor continued, “And some legal experts concur: Dominion not only has the upper hand, it has the truth on its side. “If Dominion prevails, the only thing left to decide is how much in damages Dominion is legally entitled to. The numbers then go into the stratosphere. Dominion is claiming losses in profits and brand damage of $1.6 billion. Nevertheless, it is also requesting punitive damages, which, according to New York state law, are not limited and could reach the billion dollar mark.”

A multi-billion dollar judgement for punitive damages would not only penalise Fox News, Phang continued. That would convey a strong message to all media outlets to maintain the integrity of the truth and keep themselves in check.

In its pleadings, Dominion allegedly cherry-picked certain pieces of information to support its claims about Fox, which the network has vigorously refuted. Additionally, Fox claimed that Dominion was applying a “extreme” interpretation of the law on libel, and the lawsuit was a “blatant violation of the First Amendment.”

Law professionals have questioned the viability of Fox’s First Amendment defence in court.

According to what Norman Eisen, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and legal commentator for CNN, said to Salon last month, the case’s damages could easily surpass $1.6 billion.

I believe they are anticipating a multiplication of those damages, which could result in billions of dollars in losses, even for a major corporation like Fox, he said. “That’s quite risky.”
