    2nd Circuit Rules Fox News Must Face Suit Brought by Seth Rich's Family
    MANHATTAN (CN) – The Second Circuit Friday revived an infliction of emotional distress suit against Fox News brought by the traumatized parents of murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich over the cable network’s retracted coverage of a WikiLeaks conspiracy theory.

    So Fox News has fake news and gets sued. CNN does this daily and gets defended day in and day out by liberal on this forum.

    If I were the FNC lawyer I would walk into the court room and say "CNN does this daily." micdrop and walk out.

    Absolutely. This lawsuit has no chance. There is freedom of the press. CNN pushed a conspiracy theory of Russian collusion for 3 years without a lawsuit.

    The Russian collusion hoax is not the topic of the thread

    But hoaxes ARE the topic of the thread and pointing out that another network pushed a different hoax without being sued is quite relevant.

    Since when do you care? These threads go all over the place and you guys don't say anything. Why all of a sudden say something about this when its not even off topic? LOL

    Now would be a good time for you either rejoin the subject, or to drop the mike and walk out. I really hope the Rich family makes them pay.

    Since when can parents sue the media when they run a story about their adult son being murdered?

    This lawsuit is ridiculous. The judge is obviously an idiot.

    When the story they run is a lie.

    It’s called slander.

    I hope fox loses the case & has to pay out a lot of money. Maybe that will encourage fox to stop running stories that are lies.
