Dominion wins access to Newsmax journalists' texts in its defamation case

"Dominion Voting Systems is entitled to review personal communications and text messages of Newsmax Media journalists in its defamation suit against the conservative media company, a Delaware judge ruled last week.

The ruling is a blow to Newsmax, which successfully avoided such a mandate in a similar case and sought to allow its employees to voluntarily offer up any relevant communications."

Should be good for a laugh.

Good, let’s see how deplorable Newsmax is.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

It’s called discovery, and it happens in every civil case.

Newsmax knows how bad it will look.

Kinda like Trump’s Secret Service detail inexplicably losing all their text communications.

I'm bothered by this only because I never like the court ordering any journalist to open up their notes, editor discussions, etc. This weakens journalism and sets a dangerous precedent. Don't think it couldn't be used by the right against the NYT, WaPo, or any other media outlet.

The German word for contraceptive is “Schwangerschaftsverhütungsmittel”. By the time you finished saying that, it’s too late

...but NewsMax =/= the NYT, WaPo, or any most other media outlets ...and I'm not talking about political slant, unless the latter organizations were shown to be recklessly smearing companies or individuals in the service of purely political ends. In which case I would support such discovery.

IMO, NewMax is, quite frankly, in in the business of glibly selling mis-information...and (I think) equating them with legitimate news organizations is a form of whataboutism or false equivalency.

Again, just my opinion, but I would say one of these things is not like the others.

Newsmax doesn't employ any journalists.
