But Giuliani and Powell have not appeared on any Fox cable news show in more than a month, according to a review by The Washington Post. Giuliani’s last appearance was Dec. 12 and Powell’s was Dec. 10 on “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” a show that was once a regular vehicle for both her and Giuliani. Ellis has appeared only once on the networks since early December…

The network would not comment on the trio’s absence. But the timing of their disappearance aligns with the first legal pushback from a pair of voting-technology companies that say they’ve been falsely smeared by baseless conspiratorial claims of election fraud by Trump allies.

On Dec. 10, the day of Powell’s last “Lou Dobbs” appearance, an attorney for Smartmatic sent a letter to the general counsel for Fox News Media demanding that Fox retract and apologize for “[publishing] and [republishing] dozens of false and misleading statements regarding Smartmatic” in the weeks following the Nov. 3 presidential election.
