Family of slain Democratic staffer Seth Rich sues Fox News
http://money.cnn.com/2018/03/14/media/s ... index.html

The family of slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against Fox News, one of the network's reporters, and a wealthy Texas businessman over their roles in the publication of a baseless conspiracy theory about Rich's 2016 death.

[snip]

The lawsuit said that Malia Zimmerman, the Fox News reporter named in the lawsuit, worked with Ed Butowsky, the wealthy businessman, to develop a "sham" story about Rich's death that Fox News published online in May 2017 and referenced on-air multiple times.

[snip]

Within hours, however, the Fox News story fell apart when Wheeler, who is now suing Fox News over the story, told CNN he had no evidence to suggest Rich had contacted Wikileaks before his death. (*)

But Fox News left the story up on its website for days and guests continued to mention the conspiracy theory on its air. The network ultimately retracted the story seven days after it was published.

[snip][end]

(*) Doesn't seem to have stopped Julian Assange from continuing to lie about this.

It's time for FOX News to have their feet held to the fire. It's a propaganda and lie machine that doesn't care about the truth, or who is harmed by their BS.
