Dominion Voting Systems has hit both Newsmax and the One America News Network with billion dollar defamation lawsuits because of the claims the networks have been making about the 2020 election being stole – claims that are not supported by any evidence. Dominion has been more patient with these networks than they have with others, but the nonstop string of lies finally forced their hand on the matter. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Dominion Voting Systems has filed two new defamation lawsuits, one against Newsmax, and one against One America News network. They also filed another defamation lawsuit, a third one on against the former CEO of overstock.com, Patrick Byrne. But Patrick Byrne is not exactly a media outlet. So let’s focus more on Newsmax and One America, because these Lawsuits are fairly interesting. First and foremost, let’s talk about Newsmax because Newsmax actually came out several months ago, issued their retractions because they were actually being sued by a Dominion employee that they had said was responsible for switching votes on their network. He dropped that suit. They issued the apology, they issued the retraction.
They’ve come out, they’ve been very careful about what they say about the 2020 election ever since then, kind of like Fox news who’s also being sued by Dominion for $1.6 billion. You know, they’re, they’re not letting people come on the air and say these crazy things. They’re editing out those parts from the videos they post online. They don’t want to get in any more trouble. So I am a little, you know, surprised to be honest, that Dominion did move forward with the lawsuit against Newsmax. One America on the other hand, what the hell took you so long, folks? I mean really Dominion, that should have been the first one you filed. Like One America should have been hit before Fox, before Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell and all these other folks. One America has been absolutely one of the worst networks in terms of misinformation and election lies.
That is essentially all they traffic in these days. That’s all they can do is talk about how fraudulent the 2020 election was even though there’s literally no evidence to support any of that. At this point, I don’t even know if One America could survive a $1.6 billion lawsuit. Does the network have any money? Do they really have enough to survive if they have to pay? And again, I think the evidence is very clear and overwhelming about One America pushing these lies. Newsmax, I think Newsmax might actually be in the clear. Now don’t get me wrong. I hate them. Okay. I agree with everything they say on their network. They are a bunch of pandering propagandists. However, legally speaking, they have done what they needed to do and unless I’ve missed something and they still do sneak in claims that Dominion somehow worked to overturn the 2020 election, unless I’ve missed that, Newsmax might be safe from this particular lawsuit.
One America, they don’t have that going for them. They’re not going to be issuing apologies. They’re not going to be issuing retractions and they’re sure as hell not going to stop saying the crazy things that they’re saying, because that’s the only reason they have an audience, an audience that as we’ve reported on is shrinking. Has been shrinking throughout the year. Without Trump to get people all riled up, eh, not quite as much for Trumpers to want to watch. So One America’s in trouble and if they lose this lawsuit and the judge says, yes, you have to pay $1.6 billion, that might be the death nail for One American news network. And frankly that can’t come soon enough.
