Newsmax apologizes to Dominion Voting Systems employee

Newsmax issued a public apology to a Dominion Voting Systems employee on Friday after airing false allegations against the worker involving the 2020 presidential election.

The conservative network said in a statement posted to its website that it found “no evidence” backing up claims that employee Eric Coomer had manipulated voting machines or votes as previously alleged.

“On behalf of Newsmax, we would like to apologize for any harm that our reporting of the allegations against Dr. Coomer may have caused to Dr. Coomer and his family,” Newsmax said in the statement.

The statement was posted on the network’s website at 3:30 p.m. ET. A Newsmax host also read the apology on the air, The Associated Press reported.

A spokesperson for Dominion declined to comment to The Hill. Newsmax also did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The AP reported that Coomer, Dominion’s director of product strategy and security, has subsequently dropped Newsmax from a defamation lawsuit after the network apologized.
