The Guardian reports: 

Newly released court documents reveal that Rupert Murdoch, the billionaire owner of Fox News, acknowledged under oath that several Fox News hosts endorsed Donald Trump’s lie that the 2020 election was stolen from him. 

The mogul made the admission during a deposition in the $1.6bn defamation lawsuit brought against the network by the voting machine company Dominion Voting Systems, which has accused Fox News and its parent company, Fox Corporation, of maligning its reputation. In his deposition, Murdoch said that the hosts Maria Bartiromo, Lou Dobbs, Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro “endorsed” the false narrative promoted by Trump. 

“I would have liked us to be stronger in denouncing it in hindsight,” Murdoch said in the deposition, the New York Times reported on Monday. 

Also, Scott Adams, the creator of the well-known “Dilbert” comic strip, made remarks on Black Americans being a “hate group.” NBC News reports:  

Dilbert comic strip creator Scott Adams on Monday faced continued fallout from remarks that likened Black Americans to a “hate group,” with a publisher withdrawing plans for a forthcoming book. 

Portfolio, a Penguin Random House imprint, said in a statement that it would “not be publishing ‘Reframe Your Brain’ by Scott Adams.” 

The book, which was scheduled to be in bookstores and online Sept. 12, was marketed as a self-help title to help reframe one’s outlook with focus and repetition. 

Adams, 65, who has said that he’s a victim of so-called cancel on Monday tweeted that his book agent is no longer representing him. 

Late Sunday, the distributor of Adams’ Dilbert said it was severing ties with the cartoonist. It had previously placed the comic strip, syndicated since 1989, in 2,000 publications based in 65 countries.
