IN THE NEWS
Fox News Media filed a reply in support of its motion to dismiss the $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit by electronic voting company Smartmatic. “Seeking to impose billions of dollars in liability for [Fox’s] coverage goes beyond a chilling effect: It poses a direct threat to the reporting of newsworthy allegations on which our democracy depends,” argued Kirkland & Ellis’ Paul Clement. “Reporting both the allegations and the denials is critical to the truth-seeking function, not an invitation for groundless lawsuits.” Fox News lawyers also filed briefs on behalf of defendants Maria Bartiramo, Jeanine Pirro and Lou Dobbs.
WarnerMedia’s Turner Sports struck a seven-year deal with the NHL, sharing rights with ESPN beginning with the 2021-22 season. “This agreement with the National Hockey League brings one of the most prestigious championships in sports to TNT and fuels our entire Turner Sports and Bleacher Report portfolio with even more premium content,” said Jeff Zucker, Chairman of WarnerMedia News and Sports. NBC Sports had pulled out of negotiations for the package, leaving it without an NHL deal for the first time in 16 years.

“We are tremendously excited to be joining the virtual Upfront stage this year for the first time to showcase our approach to Hispanic-focused streaming,” said Rafferty. “Canela.TV has been growing at a phenomenal pace, thanks to our focus on a demographic that has been undervalued in the past by most major streamers. This has allowed us to deliver Hispanic audiences at scale with best-in-class technology capabilities and rich first-party data – giving advertisers valuable opportunities that they won’t be able to find with legacy media players.”
