Headline: Fox Producer Says She Was Set Up in Dominion Case
Subheadline: The producer, Abby Grossberg, said in a pair of lawsuits that the effort to place blame on her and Maria Bartiromo, the Fox Business host, was rooted in rampant misogyny and discrimination at the company.
A Fox News producer who has worked with the hosts Maria Bartiromo and Tucker Carlson filed lawsuits against the company in New York and Delaware on Monday, accusing Fox lawyers of coercing her into giving misleading testimony in the continuing legal battle around the network’s coverage of unfounded claims about election fraud.
The producer, Abby Grossberg, said Fox lawyers had tried to position her and Ms. Bartiromo to take the blame for Fox’s repeated airing of conspiracy theories about Dominion Voting Systems and its supposed role in manipulating the results of the 2020 presidential election. Dominion has filed a $1.6 billion defamation suit against Fox. Ms. Grossberg said the effort to place blame on her and Ms. Bartiromo was rooted in rampant misogyny and discrimination at the network.
The new lawsuits, coupled with revelations from the Dominion legal fight, shed light on the rivalries and turf battles that raged at Fox News in the wake of the 2020 election, as network executives fought to hold on to viewers furious at the top-rated network for accurately reporting on President Donald J. Trump’s defeat in Arizona, a crucial swing state.
You know as interesting as all these stories are, it seems to me that if you work in the sewer you shouldn’t complain when you get a little **** on your shoes.
My first laugh upon waking up after a bad case of nausea. Thanks. Much appreciated. Keep 'em coming. Laughs that is. Not these jerky girls from Faux who wear short skirts, cross their legs, and extend them out full length so a lot of thigh shows, who surround one man in the center on one show, and who defer to his deft touch of reminding them to stay on message - and just as important to the Fox boys - to stay in place.
My wordier play on your riff: Any woman working at Fox and who leaves has no right to complain if they’ve become unhirable in mass comm again. I wouldn’t trust them with their willingness to kowtow and make themselves pliable to male dominance. Those kinds of quisling women who worked and slept with the enemy of Democracy and women deserve to be reminded that 80 Million Americans were not buffaloed by their lives. (Next time, let’s make this 82 Million with the help of Gen X voters. We have four more years of accretion of this young generation’s eligible voters.
Saltier language for a specific Fox tyrant/traitor: I call her Maria Buttaroma, Traitor,™ as she’s a stinking liar. Wall Street Honey? Nah, those days are long gone. And no wonder the booker of her show is crying now. She left CNBC to go to Fox News, and Bloomberg Financial News is eating both their lunches with content and look. (Just finished their newest 12:00 noon Technology News segment, which played in the background as I type this.)
Sweet revenge, without fail, as one of my old singer/songwriter acquaintances, John Prine, once sang.
Just woke up, folks, and my irreverence for tyrants is still with me. Good. Now to push off to see if a certain orange blob got frog-marched into the waiting arms of NYC’s finest.
Tip: Bloomberg Television’s new screen layout is perfect after much work over the years. And the analysis by the morning crew is many heads higher than CNBC or Fox Business News. And now Bloomberg Television is in Roku’s channel store - FREE.
It’s also on Fire TV free.
I saw this photo in a story about Fox News multibillion dollar lawsuits.
I realized “fox” is being used as a verb. Here’s the definition of “fox” as a verb:
verb [with object]
1 informal baffle or deceive (someone): the bad light and dark shadows foxed him.
Suddenly the name of the purveyor of false news stories makes sense.
