Rich was assassinated, according to the unfounded conspiracy, as part of an attempt to spread rumors that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to harm the Clinton campaign by releasing thousands of embarrassing emails.

Burkman has a special challenge to Fox News host Sean Hannity: "Instead of worthless bloviating, how about him putting money where his mouth is?" One company announced Wednesday that it would no longer advertise there.

To those who sincerely want to get to the bottom of Seth's murder, we don't hold this against you.

Soros has contributed money to the organization and Clinton acted as an adviser early on when the group formed in 2004 by David Brock, a Democratic operative.

Furthermore, Real Madrid has set an impressive record with their empathic victory over Malaga, according to Metro . Barcelona only won three of its first seven home matches, digging itself a hole that it could never recover from.

Last week when we reported on Democrat National Committee staffer Seth Rich's murder, much of the discussion centered on a man named Rod Wheeler, a former D.C. homicide detective who is now a private eye and Fox News contributor. TheDCNF is now appealing the letter to Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser.

Long before the retraction, the Fox News story fell apart nearly the moment it was published. Hannity jumped on the report and publicized it on his site.

Because everyone on the unhinged right (I have made a decision to stop using the term far-right, because that connotes actual policy beliefs, and these people have none) believes that Hillary Clinton is the kind of person who would run a child sex ring out of a pizza shop, a conspiracy theory instantly took root that she and the DNC murdered Seth Rich to cover up documents that he was passing to Wikileaks. This has been thoroughly disproven; Rich was likely the victim of a robbery gone wrong. As Rich's family and friends mourned, he became the subject of a baseless conspiracy theory. The key source for the article said he has no knowledge of any contact between Rich and WikiLeaks and added that he only heard of possible evidence from a Fox News reporter. "The amount of pain and anguish this has caused us is unbearable", they write.

The facts of the case haven't stopped conspiracy theorists - aided by a major push on the story from Fox News star Sean Hannity - from insisting that the initial Fox report on Rich and WikiLeaks was accurate and is now being pushed aside by the very forces they claim murdered Rich in the first place. "Upon appropriate review, the article was found not to meet those standards". "And all you in the liberal media, I am not Fox.com or FoxNews.com - I retracted nothing". "They never have and frankly they never will", Hannity said. But yesterday he changed course. As far back as August, Fox host Eric Bolling compared the story to something out of the Showtime spy thriller Homeland and called Rich's killing "a hit". Hannity, however, continued to peddle the discredited conspiracy theory on his Twitter account. This issue, it's so big now that the entire Russian Federation collusion narrative is hanging by a thread. He's not giving up on the "blame Seth for the DNC leaks, not Russia" story. "These are questions that I have a moral obligation to ask, and I will do the mainstream media's job like I have most of my career". Advertising boycotts are a potent weapon in the media world, although Media Matters says it is not actively fomenting a boycott. As for my future at Fox News, Media Matters is attacking.
