Many Fox News viewers are concerned with the direction the network is taking.
Fox News’ programming, during the many portions of the day, is adopting an anti-Trump bias.
And now Fox News forced these pro-Trump hosts to go on-air and do the unthinkable.
The company Smartmatic fired off a letter to Fox News threatening to file a defamation lawsuit against Fox News over some hosts’ comments about the role their voting software allegedly played in stealing the election from Donald Trump.
“The states, as you well know now, they have no ability to audit meaningfully the votes that are cast because the servers are somewhere else and are considered proprietary and they won’t touch them,” the letter read.
Smartmatic’s letter also rejected claims by some Fox News hosts that they were owned by Dominion and were linked to deceased Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.
“Dominion has connections to UK based Smartmatic, a voting technology company established in 2000 that had ties to Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez,” the letter added.
This letter led to network executives forcing hosts Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Judge Jeanine Pirro to broadcast a “fact-checking” segment on-air rebutting claims those hosts made about Smartmatic and voter fraud.
“There are lots of opinions about the integrity of the election, the irregularities of mail-in voting, of election voting machines and voting software. One of the companies is Smartmatic, and we reached out to one of the leading authorities on open source software for elections, Eddie Perez, for his insight and views,” Dobbs told his audience when he became the first Fox host to air a video package refuting claims made on Fox’s air.
Global Director of Technology Development & Open Standards for the Open Source Election Technology Institute Eddie Perez was interviewed by an unseen questioner asking about the claims Dobbs, Bartiromo and Pirro made about Smartmatic.
“I have not seen any evidence that Smartmatic’s software was used to delete, change, alter anything related to vote tabulation,” Perez stated.
The unseen questioner asked Perez about Smartmatic voting software only being used in Los Angeles county in the 2020 election.
“That is my understanding,” Perez responded.
Finally, Perez claimed that no votes were tabulated in foreign countries.
“In the United States the ballots that are cast in the United States are tabulated in the United States,” Perez stated.
Since the election, President Trump and many of his supporters raised questions about Dominion voting machines and how they counted votes.
But now voting machine companies are threatening to bleed conservative cable news channels dry with costly and time-consuming litigation over attacks on their product.
