Smartmatic and Dominion have been lawyering up and here is one of the results:

Fledgling pro-Trump cable-news network Newsmax ran a point-by-point debunking of numerous election-fraud conspiracies about voting software company Smartmatic on Monday, days after the firm issued a threat of legal action and demand for retraction over the network peddling falsehoods about the company.

Statement:

Since election day, various guests, attorneys and elected officials have appeared on Newsmax TV and offered opinions and claims about Smartmatic and Dominion Systems, both companies that offer voting software in the U.S.

Newsmax would like to clarify its news coverage and note it has not reported as true certain claims made about these companies.

There are several facts our viewers and readers should be aware. Newsmax has found no evidence either Dominion or Smartmatic owns the other, or has any business association with each other.

We have no evidence Dominion uses Smartmatic’s software or vice versa.

No evidence has been offered that Dominion or Smartmatic used software or reprogrammed software that manipulated votes in the 2020 election.

Smartmatic has stated its software was only used in the 2020 election in Los Angeles, and was not used in any battleground state contested by the Trump campaign and Newsmax has no evidence to the contrary.

Dominion has stated its company has no ownership relationship with the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's family, Sen. Dianne Feinstein's family, the Clinton family, Hugo Chavez, or the government of Venezuela.

Neither Dominion nor Smartmatic has any relationship with George Soros.

Smartmatic is a U.S. company and not owned by the Venezuelan government, Hugo Chavez or any foreign official or entity.

Smartmatic states it has no operations in Venezuela. While the company did election projects in Venezuela from 2004 to 2017, it states it never was founded by Hugo Chavez, nor did it have a corrupt relationship with him or the Venezuelan government.

They need to go further by naming the "various guests, attorneys and government officials" that they are talking about and then state that all of them lied their asses off regarding election fraud.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Seems MUCH better than the @#$%& Lou Dobbs did on Fox when they came after him: He read a statement saying there were several viewpoints and oh yeah here’s one I guess. He then played a pre-taped segment where a guy was interviewed by someone else off camera who disputed all the same nonsense Fox had been spewing.

These people need to demand that the HOST of the show deliver the damn correction.

I think the Dems need to start up a lawyer fund to require Newsmax to make weekly retractions of their loony viewpoints? Somebody other than Soros could fund it.

Politicians don't have the same standing in defamation lawsuits. Newsmax has announced that this correction notice is to be read during each show today.

I hope the voting machine companies sue and get big-time money. Faux News has very deep pockets; the others, not so much.

Deep pockets FOX also has the furthest reach and could probably be shown to have inflicted the most damage. Rupert and Co can afford to cough up a few billion.

That list is exhausting enough that it alone should be reason enough to allow us an abortion usurpation of power and allow for Jared to assume the Orfice of President

The language the far right understands, ‘Do this thing, NOW, or we will curb stomp you until you do.’

It’s breathtaking, though sadly never surprising, how even clever or sophisticated thinking meant for consumption by the far right never rises above the petulant adolescent level of ‘1+1=The thing I want to believe.’
