I made a lot of money on that channel, from Fox, but they would not have been on in New York if it wasn’t for me having the courage the put them on against tremendous criticism. So they forget their friends pretty fast, I must tell you.
But the thing I resent most is they won’t tell me why. I’m not being told why I’m not allowed on. I’d like to know what it is that I said that they regard as not being true. We take the same position in regard to Dominion [Voting Systems], we’re in the same lawsuit… But it leaves me completely in a quandary to know why they’re playing the kind of fascist game that I’m used to with CNN and… I don’t even consider them news sources any longer. They’re basically organs of the Democrat party.
— Rudy Giuliani, the former attorney to former president Donald Trump, whose license to practice law was suspended for spreading election disinformation, lamenting his persona non grata status on Fox News during a segment on America’s Real Voice. Both Fox News and Giuliani are being sued by Dominion Voting Systems in separate billion-dollar defamation cases regarding unsubstantiated claims that the company’s technology allowed the 2020 election to be rigged. The former New York City mayor was essentially banned from appearing on the network in the wake of the lawsuit being filed in an attempt to mitigate damages. All suits filed by Dominion have survived motions to dismiss.
(Check out the short clip below, where Giuliani even rails against George Soros for his alleged involvement in being axed as a Fox guest.)
