Maybe it’s time to forget about Congress, morality and the rule of law and just let Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems clean house. It seems like more progress towards sanity and civility has been made in the past few weeks since they began filing lawsuits than in the several years prior.
Fox News has canceled Lou Dobbs’ show and this comes a day after Smartmatic filed a $2.7 Billion suit against Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, Jeannine Pirro and Fox News, among others. Los Angeles Times:
Dobbs’ program, which airs twice nightly at 5 and 7 p.m. Eastern on the Fox Business Network, will have its final airing Friday, according to a Fox News representative who confirmed the cancellation. Starting next week, the program will be called “Fox Business Tonight,” with rotating substitute hosts Jackie DeAngelis and David Asman, who filled in for Dobbs on Friday.
Dobbs, 75, remains under contract at Fox News but he will in all likelihood not appear on the company’s networks again. In addition to his Fox Business Network program, he occasionally turned up on the Fox News Channel as a commentator.
The cancellation comes a day after voting software company Smartmatic filed a $2.7 billion defamation suit against Fox News and three of its hosts — Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro. The company claims the hosts perpetuated lies and disinformation about Smartmatic’s role in the election, damaging its business and reputation.
But people familiar with discussions say the decision to end Dobbs’ program was under consideration before the legal issues with Smartmatic arose. (Fox News said it stands by its 2020 election coverage and will “defend this meritless lawsuit in court.”)
Maybe it is coincidence. Maybe pigs have wings, they just like to keep it on the QT. Maybe Sidney Powell and Mike Lindell have mountains of concrete evidence of voter fraud stashed somewhere. Maybe the earth really is flat. Maybe Night Train is a vintage Napa Valley wine. Maybe Melania does speak six languages. Maybe…..
