Debated about where to put this as it fits in a number of threads. But as it's ultimately about the fake news of the election being stolen or rigged this is probably a good place. The site may be one you haven't heard of before and I've seen a questionable article from them before, but this one looks to get things right. I'll include a direct link to the youtube clip as well.
The problem that Fox has is that they support wanna-be fascists by grooming their supporters and the only way to do that is to promote their lies. Fascists don't convince people what they should believe, they tell people what they must believe, so blatant lies are part of the plan. The Republicans have little left in the way of a recognizable platform because it they don't follow an ideology anymore. They just want power at any cost, just like all fascists. It is all tribalism.
So what Fox has shown is that the American legal system can still go after them for lying even though it seems powerless to stop the politicians that start spreading the lies in the first place. Fox is on the hook for hundreds of millions, but Rudy and the clown show that pushed the lie are still wandering around free. To make it worse the only way Fox is making any money today is with their best liars (Tucker, et al). It would appear that they are totally fucked but who knows.
Ari Melber has a lot of decent takes even if he is on MSNBC.
