Stephen Colbert Identifies Crucial Moment That Could Spell Trouble for Fox News

Stephen Colbert

In recent news, late-night talk show host Stephen Colbert has commented on Fox News’ legal battle against Dominion Voting Systems, a company that is seeking $1.6 billion from Fox News in a defamation suit. The judge presiding over the case has expressed frustration at Fox News for withholding key evidence, including a recording of Fox Business personality Maria Bartiromo speaking off-the-air with Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

In the recording, Bartiromo asks Giuliani if he has evidence that then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has an interest in Dominion. Giuliani responds that he cannot prove it, but he has read about it. However, on the air, Bartiromo says that she understands Pelosi has an interest in the company. Colbert humorously refers to this as “the phrase that pays,” which could cost Fox News $1.6 billion.

The judge in the case is now considering appointing a special master to investigate whether Fox News lied to the court. Colbert jokes that the job of the special master is to figure out whether Fox News lies, quipping, “Hold on, am I a special master?”

The outcome of this case could have significant implications for Fox News and its reputation. If the judge determines that Fox News deliberately withheld evidence or lied to the court, it could damage the network’s credibility and potentially lead to substantial financial penalties. Meanwhile, the controversy surrounding Dominion Voting Systems and allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 U.S. presidential election continue to be a contentious issue in the political sphere.
