Rupert Murdoch may be required to testify at the Fox News trial

Many right-wing extremists are currently in right-wing hell. Donald Trump just showed up in a Manhattan courtroom to be arraigned. Meanwhile, the network that circulated some of his and his cronies’ voter-fraud nonsense has a lawsuit right around the corner. The costly Fox News Dominion case is set to begin on April 17 and some big names have already been called as witnesses, including stars Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity. Now they’ve added some even bigger big wigs.

acc The New York Times, Judge Eric M. Davis announced that if Dominion called Rupert Murdoch, chairman of Fox Corporation, he “would not suppress it.” In fact, “he would force her to come.” Coincidentally, the Dominion’s attorneys said they wanted not only Murdoch to show up, but also his son Lachlan and Paul Ryan, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives and current Fox board member.

Murdoch would almost certainly be a scathing witness at the trial, especially given that during testimony earlier this year he admitted he knew the voter-fraud mishegos his stars sprayed was a cop. It’s one thing for stars like Hannity and Carlson to have been caught knowing they were fooling Fox News viewers. But the great kahuna who knows and still lets it happen? That probably won’t bode well for Fox News’ case.

Murdoch is a good asset to Dominion, as are Hannity and Carlson, and the same goes for other hosts expected to make a stand including Jeanine Pirro, Breit Baier, Dana Perino and Maria Bartiromo. Lou Dobbs, who left the network last year, is also on the agenda. Fox News originally said its on-air hosts shouldn’t have to testify at the trial because they were all sitting for video testimonies. They changed their minds on Tuesday and offered them more rounds of questioning.

So brace yourself for many conservatives to end up in court, where they may have to reap what they say they have sown.
