Former Fox News Reporter Sues Network, Claiming He Was Fired for Challenging Lies About the 2020 Election

A former Fox News Capitol Hill reporter and producer has sued the network, claiming he was fired for challenging its on-air lies about the 2020 election.

Jason Donner alleges in the lawsuit that Fox News knew President Donald Trump’s claims that voter fraud was behind his 2020 loss were false but that following backlash from Trump and the network’s audience over its Election Day announcement that President Joe Biden had won Arizona, it “purged” journalists who spoke out against false election fraud claims.
