    It's one thing to report a story incorrectly. That happens.
    Fox ran it into the ground. Rinsed it, embellished it some more and ran it over and over

    But if you're suggesting that's what Fix did was a simple midtake, then don't expect to ever be taken seriously.

Fox News has done neither.

    If you cannot see the major differences here, then I don't know what to tell you. And hey, maybe you can find a story where another media outlet did something roughly the same as Fox News did here...if so, I'll be happy to look at it and say they should be sued as well. But for you to cast all news agencies retractions in the same light as what Fox News did here, which was deliberately publish a piece they KNEW was untrue, promote it as a conspiracy theory for days/weeks as political propaganda, which dealt with a person's MURDER...then that's something you probably ought to look into the mirror and decide what kind of person you are.

    What Fox News did was reprehensible. This wasn't a mistake, this was a deliberate and false political hit piece on Clinton (and a political job to defend Trump) and exploited the murder of a man to do so.

    The part they're claiming was a lie -- that the investigator had evidence that Rich was in contact with Wikileaks -- will probably be passed off as just a misquote.

    It was Julian Assange who implied that Seth Rich was one of the contributors to Wikileaks and that his sources feel as though Rich might have been killed for that.

    Knowing that -- the assertion by FOX isn't actually a lie, because there is a source that is making that connection -- so it's probably going to be put down to just a misquote.

    If this is upsetting to Rich's parents, they could always try suing Assange, I suppose, but that's where the assertion actually came from so the assertion, itself, isn't a lie.

    Here's what Assange had to say if you're interested.

    So if having a "source" is all that is required to not be a lie than Trump calling the media Fake News and liars is also false on Trump's part since they are reporting on a source each time. You just defeated all of Trump's media complaint's in one post, thank you.

    Have you even read the CNN article?

    It's apparent that you haven't because the parents' complaint focuses on there being no evidence that their son was in contact with Wikileaks.

    Now, we see Julian Assange allude to the fact that Rich was, indeed, a source of DNC emails to Wikileaks.

    You do understand that a comment such as that by Assange is likely to be given a lot of weight, not only to the idea that Rich was involved, and perhaps killed for his involvement, but also that FOX didn't create the narrative.

    As I said -- this suit will likely be dismissed.

    You haven't proven anything I said incorrect. And no, I wouldn't take Assange's word for anything given his clear bias against Clinton and inability to verify said source as was the case here for Seth.

    Fact is Fox News put all their eggs in the basket on Assange and lost because he was lying. Hope their lawsuit goes through and they win.

    And again, trump is lying then when he said the media lies about him because they are ALSO reporting on sources. So thank you for confirming that Trump is a liar as well as if we didn't already know he was.

    Given the lack of journalistic integrity in your country at the moment, in any and every direction at different points along the way, anything that drives accountability is a good thing.
