Court documents in the $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems against Fox reveal communications in which Fox News executives privately parsed the propaganda that is the network's stock in trade. The fundamental issue that pervades the discussions among Fox executives is this: How much lying is too much? Obviously, if the work of Fox were even tangentially related to conveying factual information the network would be kaput. Yet Powell's claims were anything but absurd to an audience that Fox had nurtured over many years with countless previous falsehoods. That's the cycle that Fox executives worried would compel Fox viewers to flee to even less scrupulous networks such as One America and Newsmax.
