Washington, March 1 – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Majority Leader Hakeem Jefferies have demanded that Fox’s leadership stop publishing information casting doubt on President Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election, calling it a “big lie” and “propaganda.” “.

According to the authors of the document, the hosts of “Fox News” are engaged in the deliberate, repeated and dangerous promotion of the “big lie” of the former head of the White House, Donald Trump, according to which he won the presidential election. In doing so, write Schumer and Jeffries, Fox News journalists and executives are “lying to television viewers and threatening democracy.” The report states that such practices can lead to further acts of “political violence”, “weaken faith in democracy” and “harm the country in countless other ways”.
“We ask that you ensure that Fox News stops spreading big lies and other election conspiracy theories on your network,” the congressmen concluded.
The New York Times reported on Tuesday that Murdoch admitted in court that a number of Fox News anchors gave “false” information that the 2020 US election results were stolen from candidate Trump. Murdoch testified in January in a $1.6 billion lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems, a company that makes electronic ballot-counting machines and software. The case concerns Fox News, which was accused of making false statements about the 2020 elections in order to increase its audience.
Former US President Donald Trump continues to insist that he won the 2020 presidential election, but lost his second term due to fraudulent voting results. All his attempts to prove fraud in the courts and challenge Biden’s victory did not end in failure. On January 6, 2021, Trump supporters attacked the Capitol, disrupting Congress for several hours. As a result of the riots, a demonstrator and a policeman were killed, and three others died from causes unrelated to violence. After the demonstrators were expelled from the building, members of Congress accepted that Joe Biden would win the presidential election. Subsequently, law enforcement agencies arrested hundreds of people in the United States on charges of participating in the storming of the Capitol.
