So FOX settled for its lies about Seth Rich---not the only ones right?





Fox News Reportedly Insisted Seven-Figure Seth Rich Settlement Be Kept Secret Until After Election
Fox News had a very unique mandate attached to their settlement with the parents of murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich, Joel Rich and Mary Rich, stemming from their lawsuit against the cable news network: the seven-figure settlement amount would stay a secret until after the presidential election.

The revelations came Sunday night in a column from The New York Times media columnist Ben Smith.

The lawsuit from the Rich family came after Fox News fueled the conspiracy theory that Seth Rich, a DNC staffer police believe was killed in a botched robbery, was actually assassinated because he sent DNC emails to Wikileaks. The baseless theory was pushed by supporters of President Donald Trump in a bid to absolve Russia in the DNC hack.
“Fox’s decision to settle with the Rich family came just before its marquee hosts, Lou Dobbs and Sean Hannity, were set to be questioned under oath in the case, a potentially embarrassing moment. And Fox paid so much that the network didn’t have to apologize for the May 2017 story on FoxNews.com,” Smith reported.
Smith then added in his column that Fox “insisted” on the settlement coming after Election Day.

“But there was one curious provision that Fox insisted on: The settlement had to be kept secret for a month — until after the Nov. 3 election. The exhausted plaintiffs agreed,” Smith noted.

Smith sent the following questions to Fox regarding the timing of the settlement:

Why did Fox care about keeping the Rich settlement secret for the final month of the Trump re-election campaign? Why was it important to the company, which calls itself a news organization, that one of the biggest lies of the Trump era remain unresolved for that period? Was Fox afraid that admitting it was wrong would incite the president’s wrath? Did network executives fear backlash from their increasingly radicalized audience, which has been gravitating to other conservative outlets?
Both Fox News and their lawyer Joe Terry “declined to answer” the Times’ questions on the matter, Smith said.

Baseless?

The emails weren't hacked they were LEAKED---------from the inside
Seth Rich had the access and knowledge
Seth Rich was a Bernie Bro not Hilliary supporter
Seth Rich was assassinated --shot in the back--and nothing was stolen
Assange pretty much said it was Seth Rich immediately after the hit--then quickly shut up
Just a few hours earlier---just a few blocks away--------an FBI agent claimed that his gun, silencer etc were stolen from his vehicle.

BTW..Assange's opinion is not proof...and Rich's political opinions ditto.

Nope....but his opinion..if he has one..about the death of Seth Rich is.

Hope you have a better lawyer than Fox and 7 figures moron. I’m forwarding this to the Rich family.

These lawsuits and multimillion dollar settlements will be the cure to the sack of shit right-wing media. These lawsuits and threats of law suits will hopefully halt their lies. We need to put these companies all out of business. They spread misinformation and lies and destroy families and companies. They need to be hounded and put out of business. All because too many conservatives are too indoctrinated or weak minded to distinguish fact from fiction.

Like the Las Vegas Shooter it seems with Rich the media disengaged from these stories ASAP. Whoever had Rich murdered likely made a courtesy call to his parents and suggested that they don't make too much noise.

One must have standing to sue. This means that you have to show how you have been harmed...to seek redress.

Still no one charged in Rich’s death. No suspects either being pursued by DC police. Case closed. Unsolved.

Strange no?

Many murders go unsolved...random killings are the worst. No witnesses, no evidence and no viable motive.
The case is not closed....just dead-ended.

There is no shortages of wild accusations made by the right wing media. A well funded legal clearing house to beat back these heinous allegations would be great.

Like, I don't know enough about BLM or Antifa to know if they have an office or any organization. But how many allegations are made here and in right wing media outlets that that they were breaking the law on 1/6/21 at the Capitol? To me that would be actionable for libel and slander. Whether it's worth it to sue the Epoch Times is another matter.

So FOX settled for its lies about Seth Rich---not the only ones right?





Fox News Reportedly Insisted Seven-Figure Seth Rich Settlement Be Kept Secret Until After Election
Fox News had a very unique mandate attached to their settlement with the parents of murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich, Joel Rich and Mary Rich, stemming from their lawsuit against the cable news network: the seven-figure settlement amount would stay a secret until after the presidential election.

The revelations came Sunday night in a column from The New York Times media columnist Ben Smith.

The lawsuit from the Rich family came after Fox News fueled the conspiracy theory that Seth Rich, a DNC staffer police believe was killed in a botched robbery, was actually assassinated because he sent DNC emails to Wikileaks. The baseless theory was pushed by supporters of President Donald Trump in a bid to absolve Russia in the DNC hack.
“Fox’s decision to settle with the Rich family came just before its marquee hosts, Lou Dobbs and Sean Hannity, were set to be questioned under oath in the case, a potentially embarrassing moment. And Fox paid so much that the network didn’t have to apologize for the May 2017 story on FoxNews.com,” Smith reported.
Smith then added in his column that Fox “insisted” on the settlement coming after Election Day.

“But there was one curious provision that Fox insisted on: The settlement had to be kept secret for a month — until after the Nov. 3 election. The exhausted plaintiffs agreed,” Smith noted.

Smith sent the following questions to Fox regarding the timing of the settlement:


Why did Fox care about keeping the Rich settlement secret for the final month of the Trump re-election campaign? Why was it important to the company, which calls itself a news organization, that one of the biggest lies of the Trump era remain unresolved for that period? Was Fox afraid that admitting it was wrong would incite the president’s wrath? Did network executives fear backlash from their increasingly radicalized audience, which has been gravitating to other conservative outlets?
Both Fox News and their lawyer Joe Terry “declined to answer” the Times’ questions on the matter, Smith said.
Baseless?

The emails weren't hacked they were LEAKED---------from the inside
Seth Rich had the access and knowledge
Seth Rich was a Bernie Bro not Hilliary supporter
Seth Rich was assassinated --shot in the back--and nothing was stolen
Assange pretty much said it was Seth Rich immediately after the hit--then quickly shut up
Just a few hours earlier---just a few blocks away--------an FBI agent claimed that his gun, silencer etc were stolen from his vehicle.
Uh huh...any thoughts on the many retractions in this case?

BTW..Assange's opinion is not proof...and Rich's political opinions ditto.
Assange received the LEAKED emails---he knows who did the leaking. Want to try again?

So FOX settled for its lies about Seth Rich---not the only ones right?





Fox News Reportedly Insisted Seven-Figure Seth Rich Settlement Be Kept Secret Until After Election
Fox News had a very unique mandate attached to their settlement with the parents of murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich, Joel Rich and Mary Rich, stemming from their lawsuit against the cable news network: the seven-figure settlement amount would stay a secret until after the presidential election.

The revelations came Sunday night in a column from The New York Times media columnist Ben Smith.

The lawsuit from the Rich family came after Fox News fueled the conspiracy theory that Seth Rich, a DNC staffer police believe was killed in a botched robbery, was actually assassinated because he sent DNC emails to Wikileaks. The baseless theory was pushed by supporters of President Donald Trump in a bid to absolve Russia in the DNC hack.
“Fox’s decision to settle with the Rich family came just before its marquee hosts, Lou Dobbs and Sean Hannity, were set to be questioned under oath in the case, a potentially embarrassing moment. And Fox paid so much that the network didn’t have to apologize for the May 2017 story on FoxNews.com,” Smith reported.
Smith then added in his column that Fox “insisted” on the settlement coming after Election Day.

“But there was one curious provision that Fox insisted on: The settlement had to be kept secret for a month — until after the Nov. 3 election. The exhausted plaintiffs agreed,” Smith noted.

Smith sent the following questions to Fox regarding the timing of the settlement:


Why did Fox care about keeping the Rich settlement secret for the final month of the Trump re-election campaign? Why was it important to the company, which calls itself a news organization, that one of the biggest lies of the Trump era remain unresolved for that period? Was Fox afraid that admitting it was wrong would incite the president’s wrath? Did network executives fear backlash from their increasingly radicalized audience, which has been gravitating to other conservative outlets?
Both Fox News and their lawyer Joe Terry “declined to answer” the Times’ questions on the matter, Smith said.
Baseless?

The emails weren't hacked they were LEAKED---------from the inside
Seth Rich had the access and knowledge
Seth Rich was a Bernie Bro not Hilliary supporter
Seth Rich was assassinated --shot in the back--and nothing was stolen
Assange pretty much said it was Seth Rich immediately after the hit--then quickly shut up
Just a few hours earlier---just a few blocks away--------an FBI agent claimed that his gun, silencer etc were stolen from his vehicle.

I think you are incorrect...again.
Prove your assertion...and prove Assange does not lie.
