Fox News Lays Off Entire Investigative Unit After Dominion Settlement
Fox News laid off its entire investigative unit of reporters one month after the cable news company settled with Dominion Voting Systems for $787.5 million, Rolling Stone reported.
Last month, Fox News settled Dominion’s $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit for $787.5 million. Six days later, the cable news company cut ties with Tucker Carlson.
Carlson’s attorneys reportedly sent Fox News a letter that accused the company of agreeing to fire Carlson as part of its settlement with Dominion, among other things.
However, the electronic voting company has continually denied playing any role in Carlson’s firing.

“As the Fox principals who negotiated the settlement well know, Dominion made no demands about Tucker Carlson’s employment orally or in writing,” a Dominion spokesperson told the Daily Caller. “Any claims otherwise are categorically false and a thinly veiled effort to further damage Dominion. Fox should take every effort to stop these lies immediately.”
A Fox News spokesperson also said reports about Dominion’s role in Carlson’s firing are “categorically false.”
Still, the company let go of its entire investigative unit on Friday, with more layoffs potentially on the way, according to Rolling Stone.

Question – What is a “news” broadcast that has no investigative journalists?
Answer – Talking heads parroting the party line narrative/indoctrination from above, just like all the other “news” broadcasts from major networks/sources.
