Fascinating the double standard you have for Fox News compared to CNN. CNN gets it wrong sometimes- but they they don't have a history of making things up. Gingrich isn't a Fox staffer but is what they call a contributor, i.e. somebody brought in to be a talking head during a news segment Is Gingrich a paid employee of Fox News? Yes. Were his remarks presented as part of Fox News? Yes. Did Gingrich say on Fox News: "We have this very strange story now of this young man who worked for the Democratic National Committee, who apparently was assassinated at 4 in the morning, having given WikiLeaks something like 53,000 emails and 17,000 attachments," Gingrich said on Fox May 21. "Nobody’s investigating that, and what does that tell you about what was going on? Because it turns out, it wasn’t the Russians." Was that story known to be false? Yes. having given WikiLeaks something like 53,000 emails and 17,000 attachments," The only person who made that claim had recanted that a week earlier. Fox News was promoting fake news- maliciously harming the family of Seth Rich. Which is why Fox News is being sued for its fake news. His suit alleges Fox News defamed him by manufacturing two false quotations attributed to him and ruining his reputation by blaming him as the deceptive story fell apart.
