Fox News and Host Lou Dobbs Face a Defamation Lawsuit
Fox News and Host Lou Dobbs faced a defamation lawsuit against Venezuelan Businessman Majed Khalil. Khalil filed the defamation lawsuit in 2021, saying that Dobbs was spilling fake accusations on his social media and a pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell on Fox Show. Dobbs accused Khalil of changing the ballot count in the presidential election in 2020. In Dobb’s Twitter post, he stated that the 2020 presidential election was indeed a pearl harbor.
In Khalil’s complaint, he states that Dobbs says on the show how these four individuals led the effort to rig the election. Fox and Dobbs settled the issue, and this matter should be resolved by both sides. Later on February 2021, Fox canceled Dobb’s show.
Additionally, Fox was fighting a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems on similar claims about the 2020 election made on its air. Fox states that they will continue to advocate the rights and the freedom to speech as they move into the next battle on evolving. The Dominion defamation trial will later begin this month.
