‘It Might Take a Decade To Undo The Damage’: Georgia GOP Official Slams Fox News Over Election Lies
During a panel discussion on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, former Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan (R) weighed the damage Fox News has done with its “fanning of the flames of all these conspiracy theories” on its network.
Duncan’s commentary came as the panel discussed the release of Dominion Voting Systems defamation case court filings that show hosts privately bashing people who spread lies related to the 2020 presidential election that they helped spread themselves.
“What happened on Fox News was hard for the Republican Party, right?” Duncan said.
“It might take a decade to unwind some of those, the fanning of the flames of all these conspiracy theories and it was painful to watch and listen to,” he added.
He also urged all media outlets to find a better balance in managing a for-profit business operation with its mission of sharing the news.
Karen Finney, a spokesperson for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, also slammed Fox News for promoting “lies that led to violence” like that seen during the Jan. 6, 2021, attack.
“We are still in a country that is largely divided around whether or not you believe the 2020 election was legitimate,” Finney said.
“Fox News has been part of creating that divisive part of America and it’s shameful, frankly.”
