Multiple Right-wing news networks spent literal months after the 2020 presidential election slinging around baseless conspiracy theories and blatant mistruths about widespread voter fraud. Now it seems at least some of these places are finally being forced to fess up to their lies, as The Daily Beast reports that pro-Trump, ultra Right-wing outlet One America News Network (OAN) ran a segment this week in which they humiliatingly announced that there was “no widespread voter fraud” perpetrated by Georgia election workers during the 2020 presidential election that Donald Trump brutally lost.
The embarrassing admission, as noted by the Beast, came on the heels of the controversial network settling a massive defamation lawsuit brought against OAN by two election workers.
The OAN segment that aired on Monday was pre-recorded and featured remarks on an investigation that was conducted by Georgia officials into outlandish claims made by ex-President Donald Trump and his then-attorney Rudy Giuliani with regard to the 2020 presidential election.
“The results of this investigation indicate that Ruby Freeman and Wandrea ‘Shaye’ Moss did not engage in ballot fraud or criminal misconduct,” the narrator of the pre-recorded clip states.

“A legal matter with this network and the two election workers has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties through a fair and reasonable settlement,” the segment continues.
Both Freeman and her daughter, Moss, allege that they were victims of brutal harassment as a result of the baseless, conspiracy theories rumors that were spread by entities like OAN, claiming that they personally took part in the voter fraud scheme that cost Donald Trump the 2020 election against Joe Biden.
In fact, when Donald Trump made that infamous phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in which Trump demanded that the GA official “find” the additional votes he needed to overturn the state’s election back into his favor, the now ex-president allegedly mentioned Freeman’s name at least 18 times.
Video footage of Freeman and Moss doing their jobs was thoroughly attacked by the likes of Rudy Giuliani and Fox News’ Sean Hannity, who said the footage showed “blatant, clear, obvious” voter fraud.
