Fox News is facing a lawsuit, and according to Glenn Beck, “it could be crippling.”
The $1.6 billion lawsuit is the work of Dominion Voting Systems, which argues that Fox News defamed Dominion by knowingly repeating lies that Dominion’s services were used to fraudulently elect Joe Biden to the White House.
Bill O'Reilly joined Beck to discuss the issue and said, “I do believe there are going to be big changes at that network, not right away.”
He says that these changes may come now that FNC has hired David Rhodes, a former CBS News chief. He adds that Fox News is a different place from what it was when he and Beck were there.
It’s not just that, but the average age of Fox News viewers right now is 70 years old, as the younger viewers have dropped off considerably.
However, Fox does have some incredible stories lined up — one being the January 6 tapes that Tucker Carlson was given by the speaker of the House. According to O’Reilly, this is a huge break — but Beck says he’s a “little disturbed” by this.
“I mean, I’m glad he has it, and I’m going to be watching, but I’m a little disturbed that it was given to only one person. There are so many hours. The way these things usually get you to the truth quickly is when it’s just dumped out and everyone can look through it.”
O’Reilly challenges this, saying, “I’ll have to disagree with that, because if you give it to the New York Times, they’re not going to report accurately.”
Whether the NYT would or wouldn’t remains to be seen, but the point stands that the January 6 tapes are big, and Fox needs them.
O’Reilly goes on to compare Fox’s defense in the lawsuit to Fauci’s likely, and only, defense of his so-called science that shaped the entire globe’s response to the pandemic.
He says, “Fauci’s going to hide behind ‘it was my opinion that COVID didn’t come out of that lab. That’s my opinion.’ Okay, that’s what Fox is using against Dominion. It’s opinion, opinion, opinion.”
