    Is this from that idiot "No Labels" thing that's 100% a GOP attempt to siphon votes from Biden?

      And now you've got Smartmatic with their turn at the pinata. Fox says they're ready to take this one to court. But that's what they said about Dominion
      Perhaps Smartmatic wants to actually grill Fox personalities on the stand for the whole world to see, instead of just pocketing a huge sum for their investment group owners.
      What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

          It's possible that's where he's getting it from. Wouldn't surprise me.

            • RFK Jr is a useful idiot just like Yang.

              Nobody with a functioning cerebral cortex will vote for them. They are propped up by rightwing money to help the GOP, full stop.

              • The best part is Lindell said he'll take it to court, but there's this:

                A copy of contest rules submitted in the arbitration said disputes would be "resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration" and noted that arbitration "is subject to very limited review by courts."

                  I don't remember scoffing at any particular settlement amounts. I think that it could be fairly characterized that I scoffed at Dominion's claim that they could prove $1.3 billion in damages, and I still scoff at that. In fact, I think this settlement seems to confirm that I was right on that issue, since by all news accounts that I've heard, they had Fox pretty much dead to rights on many of the liability issues. If they have Fox on liability, why settle for $787 if you really think you were damaged by double that?

                  And honestly, yeah, it's all play money to these guys. $787 million is an unheard of fortune to all of us, but if you can afford to pay your wife double that just so you can marry someone 30 years her junior, you might as well be dealing with monopoly money.


                  Edit. But hey, thanks for confirming the fact that I did predict the case would be settled.
                  That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                    I know it's not in your DNA to admit to you're wrong, but $787 million is not "lightyears less" (your quote) than $1.3 billion, nor is it "Gretchen Carlson tittie money", as she settled against Fox for a paltry $20 million. The rest of your post is superfluous bullsh-t that has nothing to do with the fact you were highly skeptical that Dominion would get anything close to $1.3 billion, and yet, they did.

                        $787 million is a lot of money, no doubt. And, if you had asked me back when the case was filed whether they would get more than $787 million or less than $787 million, I would have guessed less.

                        On the other hand, they also settled for more than a half a billion dollars less than what they claimed they were damaged, and I think you would have to admit that a half billion dollars is also a lot of money as well, is it not?

                        I'm not really sure what the whole point of your argument is here, by the way. I think Dominion got a good outcome. That's great for them. I don't own stock in either Dominion or Fox so it doesn't affect me one way or the other. It's an interesting news story that future lawyers in training can read about, but will quickly be forgotten by most of the rest of us.

                        I just thought it was really funny that one of Murdoch's wives got way more than what Dominion got. I'm not even sure why I found that amusing. As I posted before, to these people it's all just play money anyway.

                          For someone who hates backslapping, you sure do like to come on here and pat yourself on the back a lot. My point was, in this instance, you were wrong. You repeatedly claimed Dominion wasn't going to get sh-t, and yet, they did. Why puff your chest out when the record makes you look silly?
                          I won't claim to know the specifics of why Dominion decided to settle. A quick perusal looks like they asked for $650m in actual damages, which they got, and then some. I won't claim to know why they didn't think they could get more in court, but if that's the number they calculated, I guess they'll pocket a cool $137.5 million for future endeavors, and pay less in court fees, their lawyers, etc.

                            I didn’t come here bragging. Predicting the parties would settle isn’t a terrible stretch.

                            All I posted was a comment about what Murdoch’s wife received, Handy got triggered and came after me. I corrected his recollection and pointed out that I had expected the parties to settle, and that’s where you decided your blather was necessary.

                              Came after you? Triggered? Lol. Look in the mirror on that one. He literally told you the truth, which is Dominion settled for far, far more than you repeatedly posted that you expected. You were wrong, sir. Wrong.
                              Where you were right, is that it wasn't a terrible stretch to expect a privately held equity firm with yearly revenues around 1/10th of what they settled for to, well, settle before trial. Maximize shareholder value. No guarantees they'd have received more from a jury, if any at all, and like you also correctly pointed out, now they can avoid the appeals process, which could have drawn out getting paid, or lessened the payout. I think most posters on here, all haters of Fox News, were HOPING for Dominion to take it to trial for a knockout blow. I can't say I saw anyone predict this was the end of Fox, but I did see real lawyers, like FS 23, predict that the payout would be much higher than you predicted, based on the reporting.
                              Okay, I'm sure people are sick of seeing this back and forth. I'll drop it now.

                                A Florida sheriff who has taken a hard line against antisemitic extremism in his county announced Thursday that authorities have arrested a third person for making online threats against him.

                                And just like the first two men arrested, this one also is living with his mother.
