A top star at Fox News just got blindsided by this major courtroom bombshell

Mar 10, 2023

The Left is frothing at the mouth over Dominion’s $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News over claims made about the 2020 election.

Now the case has taken a big turn.

And a top star at Fox News just got blindsided by this major courtroom bombshell.

Maria Bartiromo, the host of Fox Sunday Futures and Mornings with Maria, is one of the individuals who Dominion claims defamed them by reporting on false allegations made by Trump attorney Sydney Powell about voting machines switching votes to Donald Trump.

But new evidence emerged showing Dominion’s partners actually admitted they could not find anything defamatory that Bartiromo said on the air.

Dominion hired public affairs firm Hamilton Place Strategies to work on the case.

An email from founding partner Tony Fratto about Bartiromo admitted that “these examples don’t actually sound very damning. Is it possible we’re missing some?”

“In a lot of what we read for Maria, she actually worded things pretty carefully,” managing partner Stephanie Walstrom wrote back.

“That’s all possible,” Fratto responded. “Sometimes things sound bad when you’re listening but they’re actually more careful than you think.”

An associate later emailed Fratto and Walstrom and admitted that Bartiromo never actually accused Dominion of changing votes and only reported on what others said, which is protected speech under the First Amendment.

“We’ve combed through the Flag transcripts of Maria Bartiromo’s interviews, her Twitter, and her Parler, but she hasn’t made any statements that seem to have a strong case for defamation because she is always careful about either quoting other people (“a report issued says…”, “Sidney Powell says…”) or not mentioning Dominion specifically. She leaves it up to her guests to make most of the defamatory claims,” the email read.

Fox News put out a statement boasting that these revelations buttressed their case that Dominion’s court filings were full of cherry picked and out of context quotes as part of a campaign to destroy Fox News.

“Thanks to today’s filings, Dominion has been caught red handed using more distortions and misinformation in their PR campaign to smear FOX News and trample on free speech and freedom of the press. We already know they will say and do anything to try to win this case, but to twist and even misattribute quotes to the highest levels of our company is truly beyond the pale,” the Fox statement read.
