Fox News PULLS Seth Rich Conspiracy Story After Family Pleads With Hannity To STOP!
Fox News retracted a story they posted about the supposed conspiracy theory surrounding DNC staffer Seth Rich after his brother posted a letter pleading with Sean Hannity to stop spreading the hurtful story.
Here’s what they said:
On May 16, a story was posted on the Fox News website on the investigation into the 2016 murder of DNC Staffer Seth Rich. The article was not initially subjected to the high degree of editorial scrutiny we require for all our reporting. Upon appropriate review, the article was found not to meet those standards and has since been removed.
We will continue to investigate this story and will provide updates as warranted.
Here’s the letter Seth Rich’s brother posted to the producer of Hannity’s show:
After the Wheeler story broke down, Hannity pinned all his hopes on this guy, @KimDotCom, who promised a bombshell today:

It dropped this morning and was less than promised, but that won’t stop the shysters from pushing it anyway, even after the family has called him out for being a scam artist. The shysters developed a new strategy – they’re posting a video from the family from a month ago pretending that it is thanking the conspiracy theorists. Pretty shameless huh?
Aaron Rich is appealing to Hannity’s “decency” and begging him to stop hurting the family.
Here’s how scummy Hannity responded:

Funny how Aaron Rich’s letter isn’t a must read, huh?
Appealing to Hannity’s decency won’t go nearly as far as that which appeals to his acute Trumpophilia and bank statement.
Here’s a representative for the Rich family thanking Fox News for the retraction:
“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. “We are hopeful that in the future Fox News will work with the family to ensure the highest degree of professionalism and scrutiny is followed so that only accurate facts are reported serving this case.”
But don’t believe it – the conspiracy theorists say he’s making statements against the family’s will, and Hillary has them under gunpoint or something.
And Hannity is still defiantly pushing his BS on his radio show:
Hannity on radio just now: "For those accusing me of pushing a conspiracy theory, you are the biggest phony hypocrites in the entire world."

I’ve been calling Sean Hannity a scumbag POS for years now. I’m glad the rest of conservatism is catching up.
