Could San Diego-based One America News Network be the next right-wing media outlet slapped with a huge lawsuit?

The same day Smartmatic sued Fox News and several hosts for defamation — and $2.7 billion in damages — Dominion Voting Systems said Thursday it had asked Facebook and other social media platforms to preserve posts and data from several conservative-leaning networks.

Defamation claims revolve around media allegations that Dominion rigged the 2020 presidential election.

Lawyers for Dominion’s parent company sent letters to Facebook, YouTube, Parler and Twitter stating that the posts and data from Fox, Newsmax, One America News Network (OAN), former President Trump and others are relevant to Dominion’s pending and forthcoming claims.

Last month, Dominion filed defamation lawsuits against Trump’s lawyer Rudolph Giuliani and his former lawyer Sidney Powell. The company has stated that more lawsuits will follow.
