Thanks to the Dominion Voting Systems v. Fox News filing, we now know what we’ve always believed is true: Fox News will do or say anything to retain their power, even if it means lying—over and over and over again—to their viewers. The question is: Will they finally be held accountable this time? We’re joined by RonNell Andersen Jones, professor of law at the University of Utah, for a lively discussion about defamation law (really!) and the possibility that Fox News might actually have to face the music. Writers Jay Jurden and Robby Slowik are also here to talk about the larger media implications of this case and what it has in common with The White Lotus.
Season 2 is now streaming on Apple TV+.
