A lawsuit has been filed against Fox News for their coverage of the Coronavirus coverage, specifically their attempts to downplay the severity of it and their insistence in the early days that it was just an attempt to “re-impeach” Donald Trump. These statements were all false, and activist groups are starting to fight back. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains the basis for the suit and whether or not it will hold up in court.
