Election Defamation Lawsuits Open New Front In Fight Against Disinformation
Dominion Voting Systems has sued Fox News for defamation after several of the network’s hosts entertained and applauded conspiracy theories concerning the 2020 election. This suit, plus those against Trump allies Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Mike Lindell, represent an attempt to hold those who spread disinformation about the 2020 election accountable. While some are concerned that such suits could be used as a weapon against journalists, more find that combating disinformation is worth the risk.
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
