Fox News producer seeks to recant testimony in $1.6 billion Dominion lawsuit
A former Fox News producer is seeking to recant her testimony which Fox's lawyers coerced her into providing as Fox defends against Dominion Voting Systems' $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit.
Abby Grossberg wants to correct or add to 31 statements from her Sept. 14 deposition in that case that she said were tainted by Fox lawyers' "impermissible coaching and coercion."
Grossberg worked as a producer for Maria Bartiromo's Sunday morning show and later Tucker Carlson's prime-time show. She said Fox's lawyers left her feeling she "had to do everything possible to avoid becoming the 'star witness' for Dominion or else I would be seriously jeopardizing my career at Fox News."
In her original testimony, she suppressed her view that Fox executives tracked ratings closely, and Fox would make more money by appealing to more viewers who "agree with what they are watching."
Grossberg also wants her deposition to better reflect Fox's alleged vetting of on-air guests.
She wants her new testimony to show that Fox did not vet guests talking about Dominion and allowed them "receive significant airplay without any evidence implicating them in any way."
Rudy Giuliani in particular was allowed claims of election fraud on air with no evidence.
