Redacted evidence from Fox News shows the network's own fact-checkers determined Trump's claims of a
rigged election were false- but the network proceeded to promote and air the claims anyway.
Details of the 'Brain Room' fact-check were revealed Wednesday in newly released slides from a presentation by Dominion, which the company showed at last week's pretrial hearing in its $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News and its parent company, Fox Corp. The slides cite internal communications and testimony.

Fox News had redacted the Brain Room findings, but the judge ordered Tuesday that they be made public.

Testimony from Fox’s own executives underscored the importance of the Brain Room’s role in verifying information that goes on the air.

“If the brain room had concluded that the charges were, in fact, false, they never should have been aired, correct?” a Dominion lawyer asked David Clark, Fox News’ senior vice president for weekend news and programming, in a deposition on Oct. 21.

“Yes,” Clark replied.

My opinion: Clearly the evidence shows that Fox knew Trump's claims were false and promoted and
aired them widely anyway. The only question is: Would a judge and jury find 'malice' in the case?
That, is the multibillion dollar question...
