Dominion Voting Is About To Sue News Outlets For Supporting Trump!

Uncategorized

Dominion Voting Systems Inc. fired off a new round of defamation lawsuits over conspiracy claims made against the company by conservatives after the 2020 presidential election, this time targeting Newsmax Media Inc. and the owner of One America News Network.

According to CNBC, on Tuesday, “Dominion Voting Systems filed defamation suits against One America News Network, Herring Networks’ Newsmax Media, and the founder and former CEO of Overstock for claiming that the company rigged the 2020 U.S. election for Joe Biden. OAN personalities Chanel Rion and Christina Bobb, and Herring Networks owners Robert Herring and Charles Herring were also mentioned in the suit.”

Dominion said Tuesday in a statement that the companies knowingly broadcast false reports that Dominion plotted to rig the election against Donald Trump despite having no valid reason to believe them.

In the lawsuits, Dominion claims that Newsmax and OAN created an “alternate reality that duped millions of Americans” into believing Dominion paid bribes to election officials, manipulated software to flip votes and had corrupt ties to Venezuela’s former president Hugo Chavez, among other falsehoods.

Dominion, whose voting technology was used in dozens of states, already has suits pending against Fox News, Trump attorney Rudolph Giuliani, former Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell, and MyPillow Inc. Chief Executive Officer Mike Lindell, all of whom have denied wrongdoing.

A partner at Susman Godfrey LLP, Dominion lawyer Stephen Shackelford wrote, “Newsmax and OAN both endorsed, repeated, broadcast, and amplified a series of verifiably false lies about Dominion to serve their own commercial purposes. Patrick Byrne is responsible for bankrolling and promoting a viral disinformation campaign about Dominion that reached millions of people worldwide. We are suing to set the record straight, to vindicate Dominion’s rights, to hold the defendants accountable, and to recover damages for the devastating economic harm done to Dominion’s business.”

In a statement, Newsmax replied, “While Newsmax has not reviewed the Dominion filing, in its coverage of the 2020 Presidential elections, Newsmax simply reported on allegations made by well-known public figures, including the President, his advisors and members of Congress…Dominion’s action today is a clear attempt to squelch such reporting and undermine a free press.”
