Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham Among Who’s Who of Fox News on Dominion Lawsuit Witness List
Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham have made Fox News’ witness list for its defamation trial against Dominion Voting Systems.
On Tuesday, a legal filing submitted by the network revealed a slew of people it submitted as potential witnesses in the $1.6 billion lawsuit against the network. Among them were several Fox News personalities, including Bret Baier, Maria Bartiromo, Jeanine Pirro and Lou Dobbs.

Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and Fox News president Jay Wallace also made the list. The company also named its now-fired employee Abby Grossberg, who the company dropped after the senior producer claimed in court documents that she was forced to provide misleading testimony in the Dominion case.
In addition, the list also named Rupert Murdoch and his son Lachlan. The witness list is part of the ongoing battle, which came after Dominion sued Fox in 2021, alleging its hosts and networks falsely reported that Dominion’s machines rigged the 2020 presidential election.
Update, Tuesday night: In a statement, Fox News said, “Dominion’s needlessly expansive live witness list is yet another attempt to generate headlines and distract from the many shortcomings of its case. Ultimately, this case is about the First Amendment protections of the media’s absolute right to cover the news.”””
