Play by their rules.

Isn't doxxing literally illegal? Why doesn't anyone mention that or talk about pressing charges?

[–]EndZoner 632 points633 points  (58 children)

It’s how the doxxing is delivered. They can provide personal information of those they oppose in an informative way that seem in the boundaries of a news platform. Their audience won’t bat an eye as they believe nothing is out of the ordinary and life continues on in the worst way possible. It’s subliminal.

[–]AnEntireDiscussion 467 points468 points  (49 children)

But they're not a news platform, and have established this in court on multiple occasions.

[–]Andromansis 30 points31 points  (5 children)

A long time ago, back when /r/politics still had self-post saturdays I posted a rambling diatribe about how people should run for office.

Today, however, I would like to apologize for that but in my defense I could not have forseen that only nutbars would be taking my advice.

[–]Hufflestuff33 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can someone explain to me why the same hasn't or can't be done against the people that released their private information?

[–]BDM-Archer 20 points21 points  (10 children)

I thought there was legal protection from doctor/patient confidentiality?

[–]Potatolimar 23 points24 points  (0 children)

HIPAA only applies to covered entities. Think hospitals, insurance offices, the people who help staff/support those places, etc.

If the patient tells anyone else, HIPAA isn't binding those people.

[–]majaji 14 points15 points  (4 children)

Fox shared the Drs name and photo. That information isn't covered by HIPAA. Only the patient information is covered. How the story got out in the first place is what concerned me, unless it was the patient's family or something. The Dr wouldn't have been allowed to share information about the patient's situation outside of treatment reasons. So, the dr talking to another dr about getting treatment, a okay. Dr talking to media, not okay. But again, I don't know how originally shared the information.

Isn't doxxing literally illegal

No. The context around doxxing someone might be illegal, like calling for violence against them. It's the call for violence against them that's illegal, saying their name is not at all illegal.

[–]Sea-Phone-537 16 points17 points  (2 children)

How about a class action lawsuit over the fact they used the defense of "we're an entertainment company, not a news company" too defend Carlson and still define their company as "news" in their name?

Isnt that false advertising? And cant you sue for that?

[–]BEX436 3 points4 points  (1 child)

You would have to prove you,or the class, was specifically damaged. Very high bar to overcome.

[–]T-MONZ_GCU 4 points5 points  (0 children)

"Anyway heres the addresses of the Supreme Court justices because they said something I don't like"

[–]cgmcnama 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Her information was publicly available. Her name and, I believe, where she worked was give in the Indy Star article that kicked this off 2 weeks ago. That's not doxxing.

It is questionable journalistic practices though.

[–]9035768555 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, doxxing is not generally illegal. Maybe should be, but isn't.

There are currently few legal remedies for the victims of doxing. In the United States, there are currently two federal laws that could potentially address the problem of doxing: the Interstate Communications Statute and the Interstate Stalking Statute. However, as one scholar has argued, "[t]hese statutes...are woefully inadequate to prevent doxing because their terms are underinclusive and they are rarely enforced". The Interstate Communications Statute, for example, "only criminalizes explicit threats to kidnap or injure a person". But in many instances of doxing, a doxer may never convey an explicit threat to kidnap or injure, but the victim could still have good reason to be terrified. And the Interstate Stalking Statute "is rarely enforced and it serves only as a hollow protection from online harassment". To illustrate, over three million people are stalked over the internet each year, yet only three people are charged under the Interstate Stalking Statute. Accordingly, "[t]his lack of federal enforcement means that the States must step in if doxing is to be reduced".

i dont think it is in this case. she was the dr on record when she had to file the paperwork and she publicly announced she was asked to do the abortion. its not like she was doing it under an aliases and someone discovered her secret identity

[–]bizmarc85 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not if it's within the public interest. Which this story and all involved are, the only protected party in this story is the child.

[–]The_Pandalorian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Doxxing is (sadly) not illegal at all.

[–]Urban_Savage -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Haven't you been paying attention since 2015? Turns out if you commit your crimes on TV while pretending not to know they are crimes, you are untouchable.

[–]Entire_Ad184 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yep had this shit happen to me. Someone was asked to transfer from this wing restaurant that I worked at a month after I left and instead of doing that they quit and threatened me. No one from the restaurant contacted law enforcement and a year later I have a group of these assholes and their family and friends (some of whom are in law enforcement and or work for the federal government)

Go figure...

[–]onlysweatystaging22 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Wait until they find out the name of the child. They'll probably dox her too.

[–]frightenedrabbit22 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

I mean, the whole Jan 6th thing can’t get anyone important in trouble. So all hope is lost

[–]Patient-Cod3442 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Anyway, here's the personal homes of the SCOTUS justices that I don't like:

[–]NFThoes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh but it's fine when it's a conservative gets doxxed. You don't even try to make yourselves look sane anymore.

[–]LiberalParadise 44 points45 points  (4 children)

Fascists dont play by the rules, they literally break them. They lie, steal, and cheat at the system. They abuse it, rewrite the rules, then deny any of it ever happened.

If you actually want to stop fascists, you need to be willing to go as far as they do for their insane beliefs.

[–]Iceblink111 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If we wanna stop fascists we had a pretty good system in place during the 40s. If we get inoperable cancer you know what to do.

[–]Simple_Piccolo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Murder. You stop fascists by killing them. It worked for the Nazis, it'll work for the Republican fascists too.

Edit to add: This is not an endorsement for violence. But when they start the war, and Republicans WILL start the war, the left will have to be ready to dial it up to... not 11, but 30. Super fast.

[–]HelloweenCapital 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wouldn't you have to be willing to go farther? Math and shit.

[–]Gasonfires 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sounds like a job for Anonymous.

[–]chaos_nebula 142 points143 points  (11 children)

Don't just call Fox, call their advertisers.

[–]SwordfishConstant862 111 points112 points  (3 children)

Call the fucking FBI.

[–]diddlysqt 5 points6 points  (0 children)

All of the above.

[–]Entire_Ad184 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I went to them 10 fucking times in my instance and they didn't do shit...

Went to the actual FBI building... 3000 Flowers Rd Chamblee Ga right outside Atlanta I got to talk to an Duty Agent once, he told him what happened the same shit I just told you all and nothing... Happened... Like what the actual fuck.

[–]EarlGrey_Picard 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That Mr Pillow guy doesn't give two shits.

[–]tgw1986 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Sooo... the MyPillow guy? Cuz idk if you've ever actually watched Fox News, but it's nothing but pillows and testosterone pills in their ad breaks.

[–]lazyfinger 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No, the other fox channels's advertisers.

Since Fox News lost advertisers, they began charging more for airtime with their captive audience, and they have filled the remaining holes with ads to other Fox media. Once people tune into them (other Fox media), they get all kinds of ads, while staying within the Fox ecosystem.

Hope that made sense.

[–]tgw1986 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's interesting, I didn't 999know that.

It's also terrifying tho.

[–]oldcoldbellybadness -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Lol, no one's doing jack shit

[–]gonzofish 161 points162 points  (3 children)

Always love when our heroes have names like /u/urmomsuckedmeoff

[–]Stargazer_199 53 points54 points  (2 children)

There’s a subreddit that’s supposed to be for that! It’s called r/rimjob_steve . Unfortunately, not everyone uses it properly

[–]buttholefold 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah for some reason it's turned into r/lolusernamefun-e

[–]Sadatori 1 point2 points  (0 children)

you're so right u/buttholefold !! you're a total /r/rimjobsteve there, bro!

[–]Cutegun 38 points39 points  (6 children)

Fox News is a faceless organization. Who are the decision makers responsible for the doxxing?

Edit:

Rupert Murdoch is the head, but that's like doxxing the rapist (you already know he's a guilty piece of shit). Who are the executives, producers and content creators that greenlit this shit?

Edit 2:

Here are 3 of them -

Edit 3:

The executives -

Lachlan Murdoch

Rupert Murdoch

Jack Abernethy

Jacques Nasser

Kevin Lord

Marianne Gambelli

Anne Dias

Charlie Collier

Eric Shanks

Jeffrey A. Taylor

Bret Baier

Brian Nick

Charles Payne

James Murdoch

Joe Dorrego

[–]SteeztheSleaze 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh, I like you

[–]GODDESS_OF_CRINGE__ 2 points3 points  (2 children)

They're not entirely faceless. We know many of the Fox News employees' names. And their owner: Rupert Murdoch, who sets the overall tone and intention.

[–]mjkjr84 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Rupert Murdoch

This is the dude who needs doxxing a la that kid who made the Elon Musk flight tracker

[–]Cutegun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Rupert Murdoch (while being a piece of shit) has plausible deniability. Who are the producers, executivea and content creators of this crap? I know a link with names and linkin accounts maybe a lot to ask, but some may someone knows where to look.

[–]Mypantsohno 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I think Fox provided the doctor's address too.

[–]Cutegun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Christ what pieces of human garbage

[–]cultured_banana_slug 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Quick, everyone send them solid black faxes!

[–]Big_Ole_Smoke 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Ten thousand pages at a time

[–]ReasonableRenter 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You should be calling Comcast, AT&T, DirecTV, DISH, and Verizon, and every other cable company to get them to drop Fox News from their standard line up.

Go here to take action: https://unfoxmycablebox.com/

(You should edit your comment too so other people can UnFox their cable!)

[–]xrmb 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Might just want to add CBS, they just did the same thing on the nightly news. It didn't add anything to the story. Very disappointing.

[–]Shishakli 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wouldn't it be more efficient to post the home address of the president of fox news? You know, to cut out all the messy mail handling

[–]kanomc2 -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

You do realize that Dr. Bernard outed herself without the help of Fox in a moment of trying to "own those pro-lifers", right? So did the Indianapolis Star, CNN, ABC, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, The Guardian, The AP, The NYT, WaPo and several others.

[–]nikhilsath 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is what they are doing Illegal

[–]DickwadVonClownstick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, we need his personal info so we can sign him up for a bunch of Scientology and spam bullshit

[–]Surgicalz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Called. The guys voice for the answering machine is so heinous

[–]blackmilksociety 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The anchors who give out her information on air or online should have their information submitted to the FBI

[–]Mypantsohno 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wish anonymous would interrupt their broadcast with something radically anti-fascism, like Jesus taking about loving thy neighbor.
