Because this Fox News lawsuit could spell trouble for Liz Cheney and the January 6 witch hunt.
Liz Cheney and her Democrat friends on the January 6 witch hunt have gone to great lengths to push their narrative.
They’ve bent over backwards to convince the American people that Donald Trump and his supporters were secretly pulling all the strings of every person involved in January 6.
But this Fox News lawsuit could spell trouble for Liz Cheney and the January 6 witch hunt.
On June 29, Crikey, an Australian media outlet, published a piece entitled, “Trump is a confirmed unhinged traitor and Murdoch is his unindicted co-conspirator.”
In the piece, the writer – some hack named Bernard Keane – claimed that the January 6 Committee has already “exposed extensive evidence of a plot by Donald Trump and his co-conspirators to overturn the 2020 presidential election result.”
What exactly this evidence is, and why it’s apparently available to people in Australia but has never been shown to the American public, wasn’t mentioned in the piece.
Yet, Keane carried on, using the same tired, unproven, and totally illogical talking points that the January 6 witch hunt – mainly led by soon-to-be former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) – have spewed, claiming Donald Trump and his supporters are responsible for masterminding the entire ordeal in some sort of super sophisticated and organized plot to overthrow the U.S. government.
Except, Keane went a step further, and outright claimed – without evidence, mind you – that Fox News’ executives Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch were heavily involved in the “coup attempt.”
“Titled “Trump is a confirmed unhinged traitor and Murdoch is his unindicted co-conspirator”, it alleged Lachlan and Rupert, through their control of right-wing TV network Fox News, were to blame for the January 6 attack on the Capitol, which attempted to prevent the congressional certification of President Joe Biden’s victory,” The Sunday Morning Herald reported.
And now, Fox News and the Murdochs are fighting back.
“Multiple media sources, who requested anonymity to speak freely on the matter, said Lachlan Murdoch has issued a concerns notice and fired off multiple legal letters to Crikey since June,” the report continued. The article has already been taken down from the website and various social media platforms, but lawyers are continuing to negotiate.”
It’s no secret amongst conservatives that Fox News hasn’t exactly been the close ally of former President Donald Trump or his supporters in recent years, especially since Lachlan Murdoch has taken over day-to-day operations.
Nevertheless, the mere fact that Fox News hasn’t gone all-in on the same left-wing propaganda peddled by every other corporate-controlled media outlet translates to Fox News being in bed with Donald Trump in the minds of leftists.
And that’s apparently the case all over the world, not just here in America.
Because this is far from the first time Crikey has slandered and liabled Fox News and the Murdochs.
Since 2020, this one Australian rag has been forced to retract and issue apologies to Lachlan Murdoch specifically, on more than one occasion.
That includes a piece from September 2020 in which Crikey compared Murdoch to a mafia boss.
Fortunately, these self-proclaimed “journalists” are actually being held accountable for the totally baseless and fabricated left-wing nonsense they spew every minute of every day.
Of course, these are the exact same claims made by the American Fake News Media, Democrats, and Never-Trump RINOs like Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY).
Yet, they’re never held accountable while they rip the country apart, spew racially divisive rhetoric, accuse all Republicans of being “white supremacists,” claim Donald Trump and his supporters are violent sociopaths, and everything else they routinely claim.
Ultimately, these left-wing ideologues can pretend that Donald Trump is a cancer who is destroying the world all they want.
But in reality, the American people know that Donald Trump is merely a symptom that has arisen as a result of the real cancer – left-wing media propaganda.
