Fox News CEO to be deposed in Dominion defamation lawsuit for pushing election lies: report
.

Fox News Chief Executive Officer Suzanne Scott is expected to be deposed in the $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit filed against the media giant by Dominion Voting Systems, The New York Times reported on Wednesday.

Dominion is suing Fox along with allies of former President Donald Trump for claiming that its electronic voting machines stole votes from Trump and switched them to then-Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the 2020 election. The allegations are but one facet of Trump World’s debunked conspiracy theories that the contest between the twice-impeached ex-president and Biden was rigged and rife with fraud.

In this case, Scott “has emerged as one of the central figures in the $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox by Dominion Voting Systems, in which the voting company accuses Fox executives of juicing ratings and profits by repeatedly airing false information about Dominion,” the Times explained. “According to several people closely involved in the case, lawyers for Dominion are expected to depose her soon. A judge has granted Dominion access to her emails and text messages from the period after the 2020 election when Fox anchors and guests amplified some of the most outrageous falsehoods about Dominion and its supposed role in a plot to steal the election.”
