Fox removes report from website about murdered DNC staffer

Fox News published a May 16 article about the investigation into Rich's murder, speculating that he was connected to WikiLeaks, but they retracted it Tuesday.

"The family would like to thank Fox News for their retraction on a story that has caused deep pain and anguish to the family and has done harm to Seth Rich's legacy", he said.

The host's comments, however, appear to directly oppose what Rich's family has expressed in a previous statement, blasting "unsubstantiated" conspiracy theories. On Tuesday, during his radio program, he insisted he must ask these questions, adding, "I will do the mainstream media's job like I have for most of my career".

On Tuesday, Fox News retracted one of their stories regarding Rich on their site. No definitive motive for Rich's killing has been found yet. These statements led some to theorize that Rich's killing was ordered by the DNC and covered up by the Metropolitan Police Department.

Democrats try to force vote on independent Russia probe
Russian Federation has denied that it sought to meddle in the US vote, and Trump has pushed back against such assertions. He become the first Member of Congress to have made such a call on the house floor.

But Wheeler has now backtracked his claims and said his on-camera interview was a "miscommunication". Hannity, along with the hosts of "Fox & Friends", have used their large platforms to push the discredited theory, much to the dismay of the journalists who work at the network.

Dotcom, who is now in New Zealand fighting extradition to the USA, where he is wanted on charges of copyright infringement and money laundering, has claimed to have evidence Rich leaked documents to Wikileaks.

But the former Washington DC homicide detective has a history of making outrageous claims to Fox News.

It turns out Wheeler was stuck in a feedback loop, attributing his information to media reports that were attributing the same facts to him. "We have a chance to turn the corner at Fox, and perpetuating this conspiracy theory damages our integrity".

U.S. to sign 110 bn arms deal with Saudi Arabia
Trump's nine-day trip, the first since he became president, will take him to Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Vatican and other parts of Europe.

This echoes the thoughts he has been sharing on Twitter, where he contends, "I'm trying to find the truth", and has urged his followers to read Kim Dotcom, who has been central to fueling the conspiracy. CNN reported that Kim Dotcom now resides in New Zealand and is wanted in the USA on charges of copyright infringement and money laundering.

A recent episode of Hannity's show seemed, in particular, to upset the Rich family after it featured Kim Dotcom, Megaupload's founder, who claimed to have evidence that Seth gave WikiLeaks documents.

NEW YORK (AP) - Fox News says it has removed from its website a speculative story about the 2016 murder of Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich because it "was not initially subjected to the high degree of editorial scrutiny we require for all our reporting". "I am not Fox.com or FoxNews.com", he said.

Aaron reportedly asked Berry to imagine losing his own family member amidst "baseless accusations" that they were "part of a vast conspiracy". He also said that people who are "accusing me of pushing a conspiracy theory, you are the biggest hypocrites in the entire world".
