The Dominion settlement is disappointing, but our legal system isn’t designed to take down corporate media giants.
The problem is actually how the civil legal system is designed to work. Civil litigation operates on the premise that money is the same as accountability. (…) Apologies, or admissions of guilt, are reduced to their monetary value and priced into the settlement or damage award, the same as anything else. The system is broken precisely because it works on the capitalist brain-rot that posits that everything of value can be reduced to money.
