Rupert Murdoch, the media mogul and founder of Fox News, is scheduled to be deposed in a $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit filed by voting technology company Smartmatic against Fox News. The deposition will take place in Los Angeles and comes after Murdoch recently stepped down as executive chairman of Fox Corporation. Fox Corporation has stated that it plans to vigorously fight the lawsuit. Smartmatic filed the lawsuit in 2021, accusing Fox News and its hosts of intentionally spreading false information about Smartmatic to deceive the public about the 2020 presidential election. This is the second time Murdoch has been questioned in a lawsuit related to Fox News' coverage of election lies, as Fox Corporation reached a $787 million settlement in a similar case filed by Dominion Voting Systems earlier this year.
