Coca Cola and Tucker Carlson were literally using the same defense. That basically a smart person would know we’re lying, but they’re not our audience or market.

I will always tell anyone who I ever meet that believes a word of Fox News that they successfully argued in court no one is supposed to take them seriously. (And of course more recent discoveries they never believed a word of the election lies, and were one of the first networks to require COVID vaccination).

I know it won't change the opinions of those who still believe Fox is news, but it's the small victories in life.
