Fox News Had to Air Legal Disclaimer Once Trump Started Pushing Election Lies in CPAC Speech

Fox News Had to Air Legal Disclaimer Once Trump Started Pushing Election Lies in CPAC Speech
Fox News

Former President Donald Trump's lies about the validity of the 2020 election culminated in a deadly failed insurrection against the United States Capitol and an irrevocable toll on the public trust of America's democracy.

Yet that hasn't stopped Trump from continuing to claim to his followers that the election was "rigged," "stolen," and "compromised."


Most recently, Trump appeared in Dallas, Texas for the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), where he once again peddled his delusional election fantasies.

The former President said:

"The big tech election interference in 2020 was an outrageous assault upon our Republic and upon the American voter. Terrible thing has happened to our country."

He continued:

"In other words, the entire system was rigged against the American people and rigged against a fair, decent, and honest election."

Despite the Trump campaign's pressure on local election officials, its frivolous lawsuits, and press conferences riddled with disinformation, there is no evidence that widespread voter fraud took place—as was confirmed by Trump's own Justice Department.

Naturally, the conservative Fox News network aired Trump's CPAC speech, but this time something was different.

Throughout Trump's lame duck period, Fox hosts frequently amplified disinformation regarding the 2020 election. Eventually, the network—along with some of its hosts—was sued by Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic, the two election software systems whom Republicans baselessly claimed worked with Democrats to steal the 2020 election.

That's likely why Fox put a disclaimer in the chyron during Trump's speech once he started spewing his all-too-familiar election lies.

The disclaimer read:

"THE VOTING SYSTEM COMPANIES HAVE DENIED THE VARIOUS ALLEGATIONS MADE BY PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS COUNSEL REGARDING THE 2020 ELECTION"

But many thought that still wasn't enough.






Social media users soon began roasting the network.



Fox has moved to dismiss at least one of the lawsuits, saying in a statement:

"FOX News Media is proud of our 2020 election coverage, which stands in the highest tradition of American journalism, and will vigorously defend against this baseless lawsuit in court."

People don't seem convinced.

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird was criticized after telling the audience at the Republican National Convention that the GOP is known to "put criminals where they belong: in jail"—only to then encourage everyone to vote for convicted felon former President Donald Trump.

In May, Trump became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. The jury found him guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to illegally influence the 2016 election. His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
