Hannity says liberal fascists after sponsors; 1 is leaving

The Fox News Channel retracted a story Tuesday that said Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee staffer, may have leaked sensitive emails before he was murdered previous year. That also might be why he's curious about Seth Rich's death. "We need to go huge w Kim dot com statement".

WikiLeaks founder and leader Julian Assange has fanned the flames of the conspiracy theory by re-tweeting stories that allege Rich was a WikiLeaks source and suggesting on Dutch television program Nieuwsuur that Seth Rich was the source for the WikiLeaks-exposed DNC emails and was murdered because of it.

That Dotcom would be willing to risk a trip stateside to give testimony and evidence into the murder of Rich certainly adds weight and credence to his claims.

"Fox is weak", Boyle answered.

Many speculated at the time that Rich may have been involved in leaking the DNC e-mails to WikiLeaks and may have been on his way to the Federal Bureau of Investigation office to blow an even bigger whistle when he was killed.

The statement did not address Hannity's coverage of Rich's death, and Fox News representatives deferred to his comments on air Tuesday night.

Breitbart News and the Gateway Pundit were among the other sites that trafficked in the conspiracy theory - as did the Twitter account for the Russian embassy in London.

Rod Wheeler, a private investigator and Fox News contributor first made the allegation. One: Sincere remorse. Rich's parents published an op-ed in the Washington Post last night asking certain unnamed conservative commentators to back off and Hannity acknowledges here that he spoke to Rich's brother earlier yesterday. As you know, when Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (also a Bernie Sanders supporter) saw the tactics to be used against Bernie Sanders, she resigned her post. "Obviously there's more to cover there".

The missile flew approximately 500 kilometers (310 miles) and reached an altitude of about 560 kilometers (about 350 miles). At a later instance, Trump called Kim Jong-un "a smart cookie" and even added that he would be honored to meet him.

And Fox News, on Tuesday, retracted the story entirely: "The article was not initially subjected to the high degree of editorial scrutiny we require for all our reporting".

"I think the same is true with what the media is doing with Trump".

Even further on the fringes of the right, pro-Trump online personalities riled up their audiences with outlandish claims about the unsolved murder.

The public disclosure of the content of those DNC emails threw Hillary Clinton's campaign into turmoil during the 2016 election and led to the resignation of the chairwoman of the DNC, though they did not contain any extraordinary revelations.

"However, out of respect for the family's wishes, for now, I am not discussing this matter at this time", Hannity continued, although he later contended that he had "retracted nothing" and would continue to "try to get to the truth".

"There's still some question as to whether the intrusion at the DNC server was an insider job, or whether or not it was the Russians", Farenthold said.

"There's stuff circulating on the internet", Farenthold said.

Farenthold wasn't the only person in the position of authority to repeat what he had heard from right-wing media.
