Dominion Voting Systems filed a defamation lawsuit against Fox News for $1.6 billion, marking the voting company's first targeted media outlet.

Earlier this year, Dominion filed lawsuits against Trump lawyer Sidney Powell, former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.

Dominion argues that Fox News “set out to lure viewers back — including President Trump himself — by intentionally and falsely blaming Dominion for President Trump’s loss by rigging the election."

The lawsuit states:

“Fox, one of the most powerful media companies in the United States, gave life to a manufactured storyline about election fraud that cast a then-little-known voting machine company called Dominion as the villain."

“[E]ven after Fox was put on specific written notice of the facts, it stuck to the inherently improbable and demonstrably false preconceived narrative and continued broadcasting the lies of facially unreliable sources — which were embraced by Fox’s own on-air personalities — because the lies were good for Fox’s business.”

“These lies transformed Dominion into a household name,” the lawsuit continues.

“As a result of Fox’s orchestrated defamatory campaign, Dominion’s employees, from its software engineers to its founder and Chief Executive Officer, have been repeatedly harassed."

"Some have even received death threats. And, of course, Dominion’s business has suffered enormous and irreparable economic harm.”

Fox News denied the allegations in a statement:

“FOX News Media is proud of our 2020 election coverage, which stands in the highest tradition of American journalism, and will vigorously defend against this baseless lawsuit in court.”

Fox News responded:

"Fox News Media is committed to providing the full context of every story with in-depth reporting and clear opinion. We are proud of our 2020 election coverage and will vigorously defend this meritless lawsuit in court.”

The outlet filed four motions to dismiss Smartmatic lawsuits.

The media outlet blasted Smartmatic for attempting to dictate its coverage and attacking the First Amendment.

“This suit strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Smartmatic’s theory is fundamentally incompatible with the reality of the modern news network and deeply rooted principles of free speech law,” Fox said in a statement.

“FOX News has moved to dismiss the Smartmatic lawsuit because it is meritless. If the First Amendment means anything, it means that Fox cannot be held liable for fairly reporting and commenting on competing allegations in a hotly contested and actively litigated election."

"We are proud of our election coverage which stands in the highest tradition of American journalism.”
