I don't know for a fact that they needed any of the money for which they were suing the "news" outlet. I really wanted and needed the network to admit to their lies.
Yes, the depositions - to a degree - have been released and Hannity, Murdock and Carlson all admitted not just to fabricating what they knew wasn't true - the latter two talked about their dislike of BLOTUS.
And it didn't make a difference.
BLOTUS still got interviewed by Carlson after it was told how much the latter loathes the former.
Both are sheisters who will do anything to get ahead. I'd say "the lesser of two evils" but neither is less in this category.
I'm not so naive that I think a full trial with each of those personalities taking the stand - or even telling the truth - would change the minds of their viewers one iota, but now we'll never know.
To me - pleading the Fifth or "settling" for almost a billion dollars so one doesn't have to admit wrongdoing, is actually admitting wrongdoing. The almost all white population - especially with red caps - somehow won't see it that way.
But this population are racist fuckheads who already believe enough lies to be ok with a coup of the government. And their ok'ness of it all has actually let the GOP be more ruthless and cruel - or at least just much more out in the open about it.
Dominion still has cases against Sydney whatshername and the mayor of 9/11. Sorry - but neither of them have any money with which to settle, so some of this shit could still come out in the wash. You can still call Carlson & Co to the stand for their trials as witnesses.
So maybe this can still be good.
