The hosts of Fox & Friends—Steve Doocy as Mikey Day, Ainsley Earhardt as Heidi Gardner, and Brian Kilmeade as Bowen Yang—explained the revelations and the network’s decision not to cover the issue.
For its frigid opening, Saturday Night Live chose one of the week’s most significant news stories: the details from Dominion Voting Systems’ bombshell filing in its defamation lawsuit against Fox News. Watch the video below.
Day’s Doocy claims that Rupert Murdoch acknowledged that Fox News broadcast conspiracy theories about election fraud even though everyone at Fox knew they were untrue in order to boost ratings.
“You may be wondering, if it is such a major topic, why haven’t I heard about it on Fox,” Gardner’s Earhardt then says to the audience.
“Uh-oh. Not me. Next time, include a brother in the loop, Yang’s Kilmeade suggests.
Kilmeade claims that the reason is because they are suing us for $1.6 billion.
Doocy reprimands him. “No, it’s total nonsense. The media is displaying Fox News hosts’ private texts completely out of context.
Actually, Fox News has argued that Dominion took the messages and emails it collected for its complaint out of context when it filed its court documents. Some of the texts, emails, and deposition comments that Dominion has mentioned in its papers should have further context if the case’s exhibits, which are slated for release on Tuesday, are released.
They cite a text sent by Sean Hannity that reads, “Rudy Giuliani is mad.” How were the other items missed? says Kilmeade. Rudy Giuliani is ridiculously attractive.
The CEO of MyPillow, Mike Lindell, who is also one of the network’s most frequent sponsors and a prominent proponent of election-related conspiracies, made a cameo in the farce. Kilmeade cautions him before he enters the stage, saying, “Our attorneys have requested you please don’t say anything outrageous about Dominion because of this litigation.”
“No problem,” answers Lindell. I received a briefing. I am aware of the regulations. There is a Venezuelan Oompa Loompa within every Dominion machine! Doocy then tries to interrupt him.
You may no longer merely say, “Whatever,” Of course, of course, Lindell replies. Let me be careful with my words. Liberals, illegals, and that lady M&M who stopped shaving her underarms receive three votes each from Dominion voting machines!
