Judge green lights defamation lawsuit against Fox, Lou Dobbs


A defamation lawsuit against Fox Corp., Fox News Network and Lou Dobbs can proceed toward trial, a judge ruled Monday after concluding that a Venezuelan businessman had made sufficient claims of being unfairly accused of trying to corrupt the 2020 U.S. presidential election to be permitted to gather more evidence.


The lawsuit filed last year alleged that businessman Majed Khalil was defamed by Dobbs on “Lou Dobbs Tonight” and in tweets.


It said the former Fox personality joined with attorney Sidney Powell on a December 2020 show to claim that Khalil and three others designed and developed programs and machines to corrupt the presidential election.


Lawyers for Fox and Dobbs had tried to convince U.S. District Judge Louis L. Stanton in Manhattan to toss out the lawsuit before evidence such as depositions and emails could be reviewed, but the judge said Khalil had sufficiently claimed that his reputation was harmed by false accusations.


The judge said Khalil may be able to argue to a jury that actual malice occurred because the defendants “repeatedly maintained their claims about Khalil long after Powell's election fraud theories were challenged.”

Fox News leaders 'full on freaked out' over who leaked Kanye West rant from their unaired footage: report


On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that Fox News was thrown into turmoil by the leak of unaired footage of their interview of Trump-loving rapper Kanye West — and they are desperate to find the leaker.


"Fox News executives are 'full-on freaked out' about the leak of never-aired clips of Tucker Carlson’s interview with Kayne West, Confider has learned, and the network is closing in on the 'mole' who was the source of the embarrassing breach," reported Lachlan Cartwright and Andrew Kirell. "A few weeks ago Carlson interviewed West, who now goes by the mononym Ye, and touted him as a brave truth-teller dismissed by liberal elites for his increasingly far-right beliefs and stunts like wearing a 'White Lives Matter' shirt to Paris Fashion Week."


"Fox may be closing in on the leaker, but it’s now almost a week since Vice published the videos. This is a notable detail because in 2012, the last time the network dealt with a major video breach, it found and escorted the leaker — Bill O’Reilly’s then-associate producer Joe Muto — out of the building in less than 24 hours," the report noted. "'This new leaker learned from my mistakes,' Muto told Confider. 'The main reason I got caught is that I wasn’t covering my digital trail particularly well. They’re obviously doing a better job than I did if they haven’t been found yet.'"

Expert Calls Out Tucker’s ‘Wildly Inaccurate Report’ On The U.S. Running Out of Diesel Before Thanksgiving


Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, called out Tucker Carlson on Monday over a late October monologue from the opinion host warning that the U.S. is “about to run out of diesel fuel,” which Carlson claimed meant “everything will stop” and the economy will crash just before Thanksgiving.


A little over a week before the midterm elections, Carlson described the high price the average American would pay if the U.S. did indeed run out of diesel and claimed the country was on this disastrous path so that President Joe Biden and the Democrats could “fight that progressive crusade in Ukraine.”


“It’s been 25 days since @TuckerCarlson reported that we’d run out of diesel in 25.9 days… and we have actually more diesel then we did when his wildly inaccurate report ran on Oct. 28,” De Haan wrote on Twitter Monday, retweeting the clip from Tucker Carlson Tonight.


In the original tweet from Carlson’s show, the Fox host had laid out his dire, yet inaccurate, prediction that “our economy will crash.” The tweet included a caption: “Thanks to the Biden administration’s religious war, this country is about to run out of diesel fuel.”


About half way through the clip, Carlson explains how in his view the brutal, unprovoked Russian invasion of Ukraine is really a “religious war” being waged by the Democrats to spread their values.

‘These F*cking People’: Barstool Star and Fox News Regular Caught on Hot Mic Destroying Network, Its Audience, and Tucker


Barstool Sports star Francis Ellis has appeared multiple times on Fox News, particularly on the 7 p.m. show hosted by Jesse Watters. But his true feelings about the top-rated cable news network were revealed on an apparent hot mic, where Ellis blasted the network’s top hosts as hateful.


During an episode of Barstool Rundown published Tuesday, an editing error captured Ellis dishing on the network he said is “just trafficking in hate.”


Mediaite obtained the unedited audio, which was published online and then quickly removed by Barstool.


After signing off at the end of the show, co-host Adam Ferrone, better known as Rone, asked Ellis about his latest appearance on Jesse Watters Primetime Monday night.


“It was ok,” Ellis said. “Well he wanted me to talk about how Democrats in Massachusetts want to lower the voting age to 16.”


Ellis went on to explain the segment.


“I did a To Catch a Predator joke,” he said, “I had a QAnon reference in there.” He admitted the hit was “a little like stammery and I just couldn’t get my feet under me. And I was like, I’m trying too hard.”


The co-hosts pointed out that Watters got his start at Fox by conducting man on the street interviews for Bill O’Reilly.


“What if they offer you like a similar ascent?” asked Ferrone.


“They have asked me to do man on the street for them, and I had to say no,” Ellis replied.


“They wanted me to take like this subway bingo card down into the subway and be like — ask random strangers, ‘Have you seen a rat, fill out your bingo card thing?’ And it was like so stupid,” he said.


“But what if they offered you not just a segment, but what if they’re like ‘Francis, we want you to do the eight o’clock to nine o’clock hour!'” Ferrone asked.


“Well, yeah, I mean then that would be — I’d have to have a conversation with Dave [Portnoy] for sure. Like, ‘Hey, I have a full time job being offered to me at Fox News,'” Ellis said.

Ellis went on to say that after his last appearance on Jesse Watters Primetime he was “disappointed” in himself.


“Look, I got home. I talked my wife about it cause I was disappointed in myself and she was like, ‘Let’s be honest, like, do you want to be working with these ****ing people?’ She was like, ‘I watched the rest of his show — he’s a ****ing joke,'” Ellis said of Watters.


“This is still part of the Rundown,” Ferrone said, joking that the hot mic conversation would air.


“Still rolling, baby!” someone else chimed in from the audio engineer booth.


Ellis continued, unfazed, by taking aim at Tucker Carlson.


“And then like, Tucker comes on and just screams,” he said. “It’s so weird.”


“They’re just trafficking in hate,” Ellis added.


“What if they offer you a traffic cop position, direct the hate traffic?” Ferrone asked.


Ellis dismissed the idea, and expressed his fear that the Fox News audience would not understand his political jokes were indeed jokes.

Laura Ingraham abruptly ends interview on football safety after guest criticizes Fox News


Fox News' Laura Ingraham abruptly ended an interview on her show with activist and author Steve Almond after he called out the station for fear mongering and other controversial issues.


Almond, who wrote "Against Football: One Fan's Reluctant Manifesto," appeared on Ingraham's show Wednesday to discuss Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin’s cardiac arrest during a game earlier this week.  


In his book, he discusses why he no longer watches the game he formerly loved, citing violence, racism and the growing evidence about brain injuries suffered by players.


But when Ingraham interviewed Almond about the NFL and player safety, Almond turned the discussion to criticize her and Fox News.


"I know you're focused on the players, I’m focused on the fans, and what I essentially believe is not that any government ban is going to make football safer, and certainly not some mythic woke mob that you mentioned to try to scare your viewers," he said during the segment.


Ingraham quickly interrupted Almond and began to speak over him: "I'm not trying to scare my viewers, football is not about politics."


"Oh, I think that’s your entire economic model," Almond fired back. "Your entire economic model is to scare your viewers. That’s your whole gig."
