As they say, always follow the money. Perhaps this is part of the

reason Fox may not want to settle

ahead of April 17, but it still would

leave them open, to viewer suspicion of culpability in lying.

Even if Fox goes to trial, they still

stillrun a high risk of the same. Look

at all those reactions Fox made in

the depos Dominion's released. Those will be fair game in a trial,

Your theory about Fox's motive for not settling is interesting, but isn't it just as likely that, once again, it's all about the money?

There are numerous actual or potential plaintiffs who would benefit from a Fox settlement. Fox may be banking on the 1st Amendment to save the organization, while they continue to take in billions.

They also have a cable renegotiation ahead, and a settlement might weaken their hand.
