If you look at the "Dominion Voting Systems" category tag on OAN's website, there's just one story.

Look at the @waybackmachine for that page — there's more than a…
Legitimate news organizations usually issue retraction notices or editors' notes when they do something like this.

OAN hasn't said anything.

Dominion tells me they haven't been in touch with them about the deletions either.…
The deletions took place about a week after Dominion filed a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against Sidney Powell, according to the @waybackmachine's records.…
A month ago, in response to Dominion's document retention letters, OAN had doubled down on election conspiracy theories.

They still haven't acknowledged that Biden legitimately won the 2020 election.…
OAN's coverage of Dominion was heavily based on Sidney Powell's conspiratorial lawsuits, so it's not *too* surprising they deleted a bunch of articles.

But it's surprising if they think this will stop them from getting sued.…
OAN also didn't do a great job of scrubbing its website.…
I just got a response from Smartmatic: "Any removal of the articles by OAN at this late date has no impact on whether Smartmatic can or will pursue litigation."…

SCOOP: I got a copy of the letter voting technology company Smartmatic sent to Fox News, demanding retractions for election conspiracy theories. It accuses Fox of "a concerted disinformation campaign" that's led to death threats against its employees.…
The Smartmatic letter names Fox News hosts Lou Dobbs, Jesse Watters, and Maria Bartiromo as individuals who spread the conspiracy theories. A spokesperson told me that suing them individually is an option on the table.…
"This retraction must be done with the same intensity and level of coverage that you used to defame the company in the first place."…

- USPS says it's already doing what the court wants.
- Judge says, "OK, let's put that in a court order."
- USPS says "Actually we did something a little different."
