Fox News Challenges Arizona Man’s Defamation Suit Over Jan. 6 Comments

The network is seeking to dismiss the claim from Ray Epps, who accused Fox and ex-host Tucker Carlson of “spreading falsehoods” about him being a federal agent.

Fox News Sued By Ray Epps Over Claim He Was At Center Of Jan. 6 Conspiracy

Fox News is facing a new defamation lawsuit from a man who claims that its former host Tucker Carlson falsely identified him as an undercover FBI agent who triggered the January 6th attack on the Capitol. The lawsuit was filed in Delaware Superior Court, the same venue where the network recently faced a lengthy trial over Dominion Voting Systems defamation claims that its hosts and guests amplified a false narrative that the company rigged the 2020 presidential election. Fox News settled the case for $787.5 million.

The Case That Could Be Fox’s Next Dominion

Tucker Carlson, before he was sidelined by Fox, repeatedly endorsed a conspiracy theory about an Arizona man, who may sue for defamation. Legal experts say it would be a viable case.
