Fox News opted to silence Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani for three months presumably for his ceaseless mouthing of baseless theories about the theft of the 2020 presidential election. Dominion Voting Systems is suing Fox and Giuliani for $1.3 billion over the bogus claim that the company’s machines were instrumental in swinging the election to Joe Biden.

In a court filing, Fox said they were protected by the First Amendment in their reports on the election and that there was no showing of actual malice in their reporting. Giuliani is on the record admitting he lied during political campaigns. (The Guardian, September 24, 2021, by Martin Pengelly)
