    Does anyone wonder if the settlement is the result of Newsmax being unable to get at the "facts" because Dominion is being protected and therefore early capitulation makes financial sense? I mean if the truth was easy to get to and power couldn't obstruct it, then having power would be pointless, fruitless and short lived, right?

    But this was the perfect chance to prove their BS claims and be vindicated in front of the entire world?! Why would they fold? Oh, yeah. They were lying.

    These networks aren’t guilty of defamation. They reported the claims as claims, not as fact. Legal Eagle’s just a partisan hack.

  • PUMP_666

    I believe the way you are promoting this is misleading-When you say "Eric Coomer" & "Dominion Voting Systems" in the same sentence, you are giving the impression that its Eric Coomer sueing on behalf of Dominion Voting Systems when , in fact, its Eric Coomer suing for Eric Coomer who just happened ti be an exec at Dominion-Dominion itself wont sue because THRY WOULD LOSE THEIR ASSES!!! Those machines are being shown (as we speak) that they were changing votes due to the loaded algorithm & manipulation of votes while being connected to the internet (which they arent allowed to be) BTW, Eric Coomer might have scared Newsmax into settling, But Mike Lindell & Lin Wood will be removing that $$$ from his posession on their countersuits if Mr. Coomer decides to go through with this......Lin Woods specialty is: Liable & Defemation suits........How smug are you feeling now? If I were you, Id issue the story as an "Actualization" & not a "Generalization" & specify it was a PERSONAL suit & not one filed by the company itself........

    Newsmax had better be playing at least a 1/2 hour retraction during prime time every day for a month to equal the air time it devoted to the wrong way.

    thousands of sworn in witnesses lots of videos showing irregularities and fraud, fake voter address, dead ppl voting elections rules changed weeks before election, ppl got caught vote harvesting, 100 thousands of votes suddenly appearing in the middle of the night for joe to take the lead, software glitches that transfered republican votes to democrats and then the courts or government didnt even bother to investigate thoroughly unlike what they did in that "russia crap" for 3 years and that crap started without any single evidence and came from a fake dossier and then they say now this has "no standing" and thrown the case right off the bat🤔that sounds very fishy and corruption to me so nah nobody can convince me that election wasnt rigged and that 80 million voted for that brain dead fraud potato sitting in the whitehouse right now.

    I’d have demanded the settlement have a big bold 30 second statement at the beginning of every broadcast “WE LIED ABOUT DOMINION FOR MONTHS,” and make them run it for three months. Sure, the conspiracy people will scream “The Deep State is making you say that,” but it would be some nice wholesome crow for Newsmax to chew on for a while. Money’s nice but reputation is everything.

    Easy to spin as deep state silencing the truth speakers, this does nothing to pierce Trump cult, sad when you realize that people choose what they want to believe over reality time and time again

    I'd ask your political affiliation but that's not relevant. Newsmax is the least of America's worries....CNN(Communist news network) MSNBC are the real concerns only telling partial stories and intentionally clipping videos together to fit their narratives..... Newsmax shows whole clips of and unedited versions of events so if your honest and true to what you preach you'd take a real look at the facts...unless your one of them at which point making this video makes sense......even the blind can see the mainstream Media is unfathomably bias with a left wing agenda!!.....defend that....

      Sorry to say, but CNN is democrat, not communist. The dems are still highly corporate, as is the gop. Any communist would hate all forms of corporatism. If you have actual examples of CNN or the democrats pushing Marxist philosophy(edit: actual Das Kapital or the manifesto level reasoning), I would be interested (and somewhat surprised) in hearing about it. McCarthyism is still strong enough to censor the far left very strongly though (for better or for worse). Know the enemy before bashing them.

  • bluetrilobite

    In summer 2016 in preparation for potential accusations of voter fraud in the US as well as a response to contemporary controversial elections in Africa, the BBC wrote an extensive article listing various circumstances that would likely indicate voter fraud of some type had occurred. After more than 4 years, in November 2020 the article was taken down because people were noting that the 2020 US election had checked all the items on that list.

    • Andrew T. Ha
      Andrew T. Ha

      @bluetrilobite This too of course is a complete fabrication. No counties in the US excepting human error reported an actual excess of real votes counted. By human error I mean a person misplacing a decimal point or entering the wrong data.

    • bluetrilobite

      @Andrew T. Ha just to address the turnout argument since that's what you used, some counties (deep blue democrat controlled counties in the contested states) reported 120%, 150%, 300%, and even 700% voter turnout.

    • Andrew T. Ha
      Andrew T. Ha

      Bluetrilobite is lying or misinformed. I searched for "BBC Africa voter fraud 2016" and immediately found the article on BBC's website. Furthermore, the 2020 US election does not check all of the items on the list. The first item on the list is "Too Many Voters" - you never get 98-99% of voters in an honest election. In 2020, the US voter turnout was 67%, a 5% increase from 2016. Already from Point 1 Bluetrilobite is lying to you. I speculate they never even read the BBC article.

    It's unbelievable how stupid these companies were. I completely understand that they have a bias to sell and this story helps that but WHYYYY would you assert these things as fact and open yourself up to these lawsuits? The way Fox does it (Tucker Carlson at least) seems like a good "cover your ass" way to handle it, just pose everything as a question so nobody can sue you for slander - "But what about these reports?" "These reports say," etc. etc. But how these companies were dumb enough to assert these rumors & what-not as fact and open themselves up to these suits is just mind boggling.

    I mean the democratic machine admitted that they “fortified” the elections, that’s why hunter Bidens laptop wasn’t talked about on mainstream media until Biden was elected. Besides I doubt a lot of people know Biden was a segregationist when he was first in office.
