  1. Yes, love reading the comments on this section. It is often so hard to understand how on earth so many in the USA seem to be completely hoodwinked by these absolute toxic fakes who peddle rubbish like Tucker Carlson and Alex Jones. I see so many Americans talking about politics in a rational engaged way and so to then see others just blindly worshipping these guys and believing all the lies that they spew out so jarring and strange.
  2. I wish this had of gone to court. Seeing Rupert Murdoch, Tucker Carlson and other fox news presenters on the stand having to admit they were deliberately lying about the election would of been so satisfying. They knew they were guilty as emails, recordings proved it so to save face, they payed the biggest payout ever. Fox news should be taken off air as it is not news, just propaganda and this proves it. Rupert Murdoch's Fox 'admits to telling lies' and settles defamation suit for $1.2 billion The US judge overseeing Dominion Voting Systems' defamation lawsuit against Fox Corp and Fox News says the parties have reached a settlement, averting a trial. Fox Corp and Fox News have settled a defamation lawsuit by Dominion Voting Systems for US$787.5 million ($1.2 billion), averting a high-profile trial putting one of the world's top media companies in the crosshairs over its coverage of false vote-rigging claims in the 2020 US election. The settlement was announced by the two sides and the judge in the case at the 11th hour, with a jury selected on Tuesday morning in Delaware and the trial poised to kick off hours later with opening statements. Dominion CEO John Poulos called the settlement "historic". "Fox has admitted to telling lies about Dominion that caused enormous damage to my company, our employees and our customers," Mr Poulos said in a statement. "Nothing can ever make up for that. Throughout this process, we have sought accountability and believe the evidence brought to light through this case underscores the consequences of spreading and endorsing lies." At issue in the lawsuit was whether Fox was liable for airing the false claims that Denver-based Dominion's ballot-counting machines were used to manipulate the 2020 US election in favour of Democrat Joe Biden over Republican then-President Donald Trump. Dominion had argued that these on-air claims caused the company "enormous and irreparable economic harm". "We acknowledge the court's rulings finding certain claims about Dominion to be false," Fox said in a statement that was read on air on Fox News. "This settlement reflects Fox's continued commitment to the highest journalistic standards. "We are hopeful that our decision to resolve this dispute with Dominion amicably, instead of the acrimony of a divisive trial, allows the country to move forward from these issues." Fox has plenty of cash to pay for a settlement. It committed another US$3 billion ($4.5 billion) to buy back shares in the first quarter after revenues beat estimates. Fox Corp CEO Lachlan Murdoch told Wall Street analysts in February the company had about US$4 billion ($5.9 billion) cash on hand. Dominion lawyers declined to answer questions about whether Fox News would apologise publicly or make reforms. Delaware Superior Court Judge Eric Davis, presiding over the case in Wilmington, had ordered a one-day trial postponement on Monday before another delay on Tuesday as the two sides hammered out a deal in private. The deal spared Fox the peril of having some of its best-known figures called to the witness stand and subjected to potentially withering questioning, including executives such as Rupert Murdoch, the 92-year-old media mogul who serves as Fox Corp chairman, and Fox CEO Suzanne Scott as well as on-air hosts including Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Jeanine Pirro. The primary question for jurors was to be whether Fox knowingly spread false information or recklessly disregarded the truth, the standard of "actual malice" that Dominion must show to prevail in a defamation case. In February court filings, Dominion cited a trove of internal communications in which Murdoch and other Fox figures privately acknowledged the vote-rigging claims made about Dominion on-air were false. Dominion said Fox amplified the untrue claims to boost its ratings and prevent its viewers from migrating to other media competitors on the right including One America News Network, which Dominion is suing separately. Fox Corp reported almost US$14 billion ($21 billion) in annual revenue last year. "Fox's statement about the settlement makes clear that Fox acknowledges 'the court's ruling finding certain claims about Dominion were false," said Mary-Rose Papandrea, a constitutional law professor at the University of North Carolina School of Law. "For many plaintiffs, a court holding, and admission by the defendant about falsity, are even more important than any actual money damages."
  3. Americans must find this idiot moron so embarrassing. The fact people voted for her is just pathetic.
  4. Spot on @swimtoshore I had the misfortune to read Murdoch's Herald Scum today at work and the delusion is hilarious. Andrew Bolt and Peta Credlin think that the Liberal Party need to go MORE right wing. Then Andrew Bolt saying Ashton was only won by Labor because Daniel Andrews went to China for trade talks etc. Seriously, the whole of Australia is abandoning the Liberal party and all say for the same reasons. Too many nutbag right wingers and their policies invading the party. The right wing faction of the Liberal party taking over with the moderates all leaving. Like you said in your above post, the climate change denial, transphobia and their obsession with calling everything "woke" as a so called insult just does not cut it with modern supporters of the Liberal Party. They are not interested in any of that rubbish and seem insulted by it. Hence. why they are leaving the party in droves. The more they keep pushing this right wing agenda, the more they will keep losing.
  5. The Ashton By election result is yet another nail in the coffin for Dutton and the Liberal party. Labor got home easily in a so called shock result as normally a safe conservative seat but Australians are proving that voters are turning away in droves from the far right that have taken over the Liberal Party. So proud to be Australian at this time and also proves that Murdoch's shocking bias in the media does not cut through anymore.
  6. Sorry that you are going through this KalamazooJay. Understand totally how this all would be too hard to look at or even hear about. Such a tragic loss of innocent lives. I will never understand how people can become immune to mass shootings and deaths in their own country but too often I see people blaming everything else bar the fact that so many have assess to high powered guns. As these mass gun shootings only regularly happen in the USA and no other country, it is so obvious what the answer is but nothing ever changes which is so frustrating and heartbreaking.
  7. @Leebf @San loving this. NSW well done
  8. Love them @Kim I know you love these Aussie political commentators too
  9. Antony Green already has called it for Labor
  10. So, what do our NSW members here think is going to happen in the state election of New South Wales ? Will NSW kick the Libs ( actually the name of the conservative government for our international members ) out or buck the trend nationwide and vote conservative ?
  11. I hope so ! He is already claiming he will be and wanting his supporters to protest.
  12. They try in Australia with Sky News but luckily for us ( at this point of time ) no one takes them seriously. Murdoch is officially a hated and mistrusted person here. I was really afraid he would influence politics but everyone he is promoting in his right wing papers/tv shows etc are getting thrashed. Will be interesting to see how the NSW state election goes. If the ALP win there, all of his right wing favourites would all be gone.
  13. The so called "News" that is incorrect that these right wing papers/networks are peddling as truth is just propaganda to anger and influence people. It is terrifying that it is happening on a worldwide scale.
