DISCLAIMER: this is purely opinion and speculation.
Ok, let’s do a little critical thinking, shall we?
Yesterday news broke that Fox News had settled it’s lawsuit with Dominion for a reported $787.5 million:

BREAKING: Dominion Voting Systems CEO John Poulos calls settlement with Fox News "historic," adding: "Fox has admitted to telling lies about Dominion that caused enormous damage to my company… nothing can ever make up for that." https://t.co/0hppoGCI1J pic.twitter.com/6ieXrHXEGL

From ABC News:
Dominion Voting Systems, in a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit, accused Fox News of knowingly pushing false conspiracy theories that the voting machine company rigged the 2020 presidential election in Joe Biden’s favor, in what Dominion claims was an effort to combat concerns over declining ratings and viewer retention. Fox defended its coverage, dismissing the suit as a “political crusade in search of a financial windfall.”
“Fox has admitted to telling lies about Dominion,” Dominion Voting Systems CEO John Poulos said outside the courthouse following the announcement of a settlement. It was not immediately clear where this admission took place, beyond Fox’s statement that “We acknowledge the Court’s rulings finding certain claims about Dominion to be false” — or whether Fox News had agreed to a more formal acknowledgement in a public way.
So, I want to ask you a question…
Actually, DC_Draino wants to ask you a question.
First, do you all remember that RINO Paul Ryan is a Board Member at Fox?
RINO Ryan is a huge anti-Trumper.
So what would be a perfect outcome for RINO Ryan and his buddies?
How about a massive chilling effect on all News Media heading into 2024?
What would you do if you wanted to make sure NO major MSM or even fringe media outlet would ever dare even speak about stolen elections?
Slapping Fox News with a $787.5 million payout would sure seem to have that effect, wouldn’t it?
I wouldn’t put it past Fox Board Member Paul Ryan to push for a settlement just to make it look like election fraud claims get you punished
He’s hellbent on stopping Trump & has openly said he won’t go to the RNC if Trump is the nominee
Analyze all his actions w/that in mind

Oh, and then what else would that accomplish?
You’d fill the coffers of the election software company with $787.5 million!
Plus his company just sent $787 million to the company running election software in most swing states
What a nice pay day right before 2024!

To put that into context, Keith Boykin reports that is TEN TIMES the value of D as an entire company.

And for the trifecta hat trick, you push the narrative that electronic voting machines are safe secure and definitely not being used to cheat.
The Fox News settlement is being used by the corrupt corporate media to push the big lie that electronic voting machines are safe and secure.
That’s totally false of course.

Tom Fitton echoes similar thoughts here:
The Dominion shakedown settlement of Fox News doesn't change reality — the 2020 election was rigged six ways to Sunday. https://t.co/zB47Lxuh5n

So does MTG:
Read this whole thread.
At gun point (the government) has silenced all criticism of the voting machines.
The Fox News settlement with Dominion was one of the greatest assaults to our 1st Amendment.
When the press and the people cannot say their opinion about a company, who… https://t.co/yRsFhbPX9Z

So, what do you think?
Makes sense doesn’t it?
Accomplish all 3 goals all at the time time?
