‘”All you’re reporting to the public is that somebody – in this case, the president of the United States – has made the allegation of voter fraud by Dominion,” Dan Webb, Fox News’ outside attorney on the case, tells NPR. “I don’t know how anything could be more newsworthy than the president of the United States making the allegation, and his lawyers making the allegations in court, because that’s so fundamental.”‘

Oh what a tangled web Webb weaves… His whole defense of Fox against Dominion’s $1.6 billion defamation suit lies in the contention that a conspiratorial madman who launched his career with a mad racist conspiracy against Barack Obama and kept going, madly, from there (most recently, he believes he’s president of the United States, and has the highly classified documents to prove it), should be taken seriously by a national news organization. It’s like saying that, because mad King Charles VI of France thought he was made of glass, all of his subjects were compelled to refer to him as Your Royal Goblet.

Of course it’s noteworthy that a fully delusional person presided over the country; and if Fox had reported this, no problem. Dominion’s case is based on the unexceptional contention that news organizations should not collude in the destructive claims of a well-established loon.
