After almost a year, Dominion Voting Systems has settled the defamation lawsuit against Fox News for $780 million. The lawsuit was filed after Fox News repeatedly aired misleading and false statements regarding Dominion’s involvement in the 2020 U.S. presidential election. With this settlement, Fox News joins other conservative media outlets such as Newsmax and One America News Network, who settled their lawsuits over the same issue for undisclosed amounts earlier this summer. Dominion’s CEO emphasized that the settlement amount should serve as a stark warning for other media companies who spread unfounded conspiracy theories to benefit their agendas. Fox News, on the other hand, did not admit any wrongdoing as part of the settlement.
