The strange case of Abby Grossberg
“The assertion that Ms. Grossberg was coached or intimidated into being dishonest during her Dominion deposition is patently false,” a Fox spokesperson told TIME in a statement.

We've been hearing a lot about a Fox News producer who was fired from the network back in March. It seems she has two lawsuits against her former employer and for a company that usually dispenses with its legal issues via settlements, these two lawsuits are going to have their day in court. Fox has no interest in settling with Abby Grossberg and maintains that she lost her job because of her poor performance.

Abby Grossberg


Who is she?

It seems that she was a producer for ABC News before Fox hired her.

Did she have any party affiliation?

We know this much: she had voted twice for Barack Obama and for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Those might just be the pertinent facts.

The position that Fox initially needed filled was that of producer for Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo. Grossberg applied and landed the job. That was her role until last year when she took over for booking guests for the Tucker Carlson show. Among Grossberg's many allegations is that Fox pressured her to give false testimony in the Dominion Voting Systems’ defamation case and that Fox was somehow misogynistic. She even turned on Bartiromo, accusing her using exclusive Trump interviews to protect herself from Fox and of furthering what leftists refer to as "the big lie." In the case of Tucker Carlson, she never even met the man since Grossberg was allowed to work from home.

Here was Maria Bartiromo's response to the claim that she used Donald Trump's interviews as an insurance policy against Fox:

“I have interviewed four American presidents and several international heads of state during my distinguished career and have had rapports with leading figures across the world,” Bartiromo said through a spokesperson. “These allegations are absurd and patently false.”

https://time.com/6275961/tucker-carlson-lawsuit-abby-grossberg-interview/

Does anyone get the feeling that there is a similarity here to the allegations of Alexander Vindman?

Here is the most telling part:

Taken together, Grossberg’s two lawsuits paint a portrait of a network so devoted to ratings that it pushed conspiracy theories to an audience desperate to believe them. She’s the first to admit that she once believed what Bartiromo and Carlson said. “I wanted [Trump] to win too. It was weird. It’s like another version of myself that I can’t connect to,” she says. “But I see how that power and seduction influences people.”

No Abby, people who vote for Obama twice and Hillary in 2016 don't suddenly "want Trump to win."


You are full of shit my dear.

That is a good question. Do they really believe what they are saying?

Carlson wasn't named in the suits and as far as Dominion goes, he was the only host to say I'm not putting Sidney Powell on my show anymore. I think the parting of the ways was a reflex response for Fox. They want less controversy.

This is one of the crazier of these "weekly recap" articles I can recall seeing. 

First of all, it is hardly only "leftists" who believe there was a "big lie" perpetrated by Trump and his supporters such as Fox News. 

Secondly, voting for Democrats before hardly precludes someone becoming a Trump supporter later. But even if she never became a Trump supporter , so fucking what? 

Thirdly, this ridiculous article seems to be holding Maria Bartiromo up as some sort of paragon, when the fact is she was at the forefront of the lies that cost Fox $780,000,000 dollars recently. 

Abby Grossberg is on record saying she is looking forward to testifying, but whats worse for Fox and for the premise of this article, her lawyer has offered to "debate" anyone from Fox about the material facts of this case, on the air. No reply. 

He says they have the "receipts". 

Articles like this with the constant reference to "leftists" are nothing but hysteria.

Lol...It's not a weekly recap. I stopped those because we were all concerned about the leftist outrage here at the time. We didn't want helpless animals killed or tortured.


First of all, it is hardly only "leftists" who believe there was a "big lie" perpetrated by Trump and his supporters such as Fox News. 

Only leftists refer to it that way. What makes it a bigger lie than Hillary Clinton saying she was robbed in 2016?


Secondly, voting for Democrats before hardly precludes someone becoming a Trump supporter later. But even if she never became a Trump supporter , so fucking what? 

There is an inverse relationship between those who voted for Obama, Hillary, Biden vs those who voted for Trump. Those are far opposite ends of the spectrum. Those lines don't get crossed. She can save her bullshit for the idiots who watch "maddow."


Thirdly, this ridiculous article seems to be holding Maria Bartiromo up as some sort of paragon, when the fact is she was at the forefront of the lies that cost Fox $780,000 dollars recently. 

In no way does it do that. It simply shows the contrast between what Grossberg alleges and what Bartiromo maintains.


Abby Grossberg is on record saying she is looking forward to testifying, but whats worse for Fox and for the premise of this article, her lawyer has offered to "debate" anyone from Fox about the material facts of this case, on the air. 

You missed one of my main points. Fox usually prefers settlements to court. This time they are more than willing to go to court.

The current leftist regime has the country so fucked up that the Venezuelans might just turn around and run back home.

Why do you say such stupid things? 

There is video of EXACTLY what happened when you claim Biden turned to shake hands with no one. He was making a hand gesture to people sitting on stage about 10 feet away. We KNOW this because he then turned and made the same gesture to people sitting on the other side of the stage. 

You must think everyone is as stupid as the right wing sites you follow.

He was desperately looking for someone, ANYONE to shake hands with so he didn't look so much like a fool for the first reach to nowhere. Hand extended out waiting for someone to shake it.

Yup. The video shows NOBODY near him. He was totally lost up there and that's why his campaign announcement was on a pre-recoded video. We are going to see very little of him over the next year or two.


You must think everyone is as stupid as the right wing sites you follow. 

The word is feeble-minded. Like those who believe professor Derrik Bell and read the legacy media.

I see that Pat supplied the link in 3.1.14  (Thanks Pat).   And from personal experience, I voted for Obama (his first term, could not revote for him for the second) and I voted for Trump in 2016.  So I am also included in that group.

I still stand by my belief however.  I think a lot of people believed Obama's "hope and change" in the beginning but after his first term many of them came to realize that he was just another politician which is why his vote count dropped by almost 4 million in 2012.  And I still believe that Trump won in 2016 because people are fed up with the usual politician who gets into office.  Despite everything that Trump did while in office,  IMO had Covid not happened Trump would have won his second term.

Those were more likely Bernie voters who got royally pissed at Hillary along with the disease of populism that infected both Bernie and Donald voters.

First of all, it is hardly only "leftists" who believe there was a "big lie" perpetrated by Trump and his supporters such as Fox News. 

Sorry, John Establishment Republicans don't count. Nor do those pretend independents that somehow seem to vote Democrat every time. Nor does our Democrat run Federal Government- including the DOJ, FBI, and IRS.

When you hear anyone scream about the big lie- you know that TDS is driving their every thought and action.

Secondly, voting for Democrats before hardly precludes someone becoming a Trump supporter later. But even if she never became a Trump supporter , so fucking what? 

[ Deleted ] A Democrat working for Fox News, and turning against them? She is set for career after this and knows it. Every leftist media outlet will be at her door.

Thirdly, this ridiculous article seems to be holding Maria Bartiromo up as some sort of paragon, when the fact is she was at the forefront of the lies that cost Fox $780,000 dollars recently. 

Abby Grossberg is on record saying she is looking forward to testifying, but whats worse for Fox and for the premise of this article, her lawyer has offered to "debate" anyone from Fox about the material facts of this case, on the air. No reply. 

He says they have the "receipts". 

Fox paid $787.5 million to avoid going to trial with Dominion. So you forgot several zeros. Considering how much Fox is worth they can easily afford it.

.

If Dominion wins its case against Fox News , the $1.6 billion reward wouldn't significantly dent the channel's overall net worth. According to Macrotrends , Fox News has a net worth of $16.44 billion as of April 17, 2023.

Dominion received shut up and go away money; funny how Dominion has shut up after the settlement. They are smarter than Stormy that is racking up a huge amount of money she owes Trump. They are definitely smarter than Abby and her lawyer. They had the money to handle a long drawn out, expensive lawsuit against Fox. Does Abby?

Vic is correct, Fox normally settles these issues out of court. Easier to pay shut up and go away money than risk litigation with a potential leftist judge and jury. But in this instance they are letting it go to trial. Could be that Fox's lawyers have ample evidence to tear the plaintiff a new asshole; and after so many settlements are eager to do it. Just as an example to future plaintiffs that if you don't have a good case; or the resources to make a trial more expensive than a settlement- don't even bother to try.

Have fun in court with a company that has far better lawyers than Abby could ever dream of hiring. 

Articles like this with the constant reference to "leftists" are nothing but hysteria.
