“Lawsuit Alleges Fox News And Trump Supporter Created Fake News Story”

“Behind Fox News’ Baseless Seth Rich Story: The Untold Tale”

“The Fox News Channel and a wealthy supporter of President Trump worked in concert under the watchful eye of the White House to concoct a story about the murder of a young Democratic National Committee aide, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday.

The explosive claim is part of the lawsuit filed against Fox News by Rod Wheeler, a longtime paid commentator for the news network. The suit was obtained exclusively by NPR.

Wheeler alleges Fox News and the Trump supporter intended to deflect public attention from growing concern about the administration’s ties to the Russian government. His suit charges that a Fox News reporter created quotations out of thin air and attributed them to him to propel her story.

Fox’s president of news, Jay Wallace, told NPR Monday there was no “concrete evidence” that Wheeler was misquoted by the reporter, Malia Zimmerman. The news executive did not address a question about the story’s allegedly partisan origins. Fox News declined to allow Zimmerman to comment for this story.

The story, which first aired in May, was retracted by Fox News a week later. Fox News has, to date, taken no action in response to what it said was a failure to adhere to the network’s standards.

The lawsuit focuses particular attention on the role of the Trump supporter, Ed Butowsky, in weaving the story. He is a wealthy Dallas investor and unpaid Fox commentator on financial matters, who has emerged as a reliable Republican surrogate in recent years. Butowsky offered to pay for Wheeler to investigate the death of the DNC aide, Seth Rich, on behalf of his grieving parents in Omaha.

On April 20, a month before the story ran, Butowsky and Wheeler — the investor and the investigator — met at the White House with then Press Secretary Sean Spicer to brief him on what they were uncovering.

The first page of the lawsuit quotes a voicemail and text from Butowsky boasting that President Trump himself had reviewed drafts of the Fox News story just before it went to air and was published.

Spicer now tells NPR that he took the meeting as a favor to Butowsky, a reliable Republican voice. Spicer says he was unaware of any contact involving the president. Butowsky now tells NPR he was kidding about Trump’s involvement.

“Rod Wheeler unfortunately was used as a pawn by Ed Butowsky, Fox News and the Trump administration to try and steer away the attention that was being given about the Russian hacking of the DNC e-mails,” said Douglas Wigdor, Wheeler’s lawyer.”

    “”You’re a traitor!” yelled the boy. “You’re a thought criminal!””…George Orwell, “1984”

  2. They’ve got a Crowdstrike story and they’re sticking to it no matter what.
    The narrative must not be tampered with.

  3. Off Topic… Mr. Wells I apologize this is important if it has not been posted.

    Hearsay at best.

    Rod Wheeler not credible then, credible now?

    “There’s another problem with the story: the source. Wheeler, a Fox News contributor and President Trump supporter, is widely seen as a publicity hound with some major credibility issues.”

  6. AND………
    ………..if Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..stinky bottom slutz says so IT MUST BE TRUE…….har har. Her side view facial profile brings to mind a parrot with the hook beek. Seems to suggest that she might have ran full speed into a brick wall as a child.
    As for the consequences………”10-4″ Could Mzzzzzzzzzzzz. Slutz, and Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Piggy be from the same litter?

  7. Seth Rich murder needs special attention and manpower to solve. If it was just a botched robbery, then finding the perpetrator means safety for many. NPR, in the article, gave a ‘tell’ that they knew Seth Rich had been taken out by the DNC. They stated ‘it was a made up article by the Trump administration to throw off the investigation into Trump Russian collusion”

    We NOW unequivocally know that the DNC, never Trumpers, and the Clintons were COLLUDING with the Russians. The Trump Russian government born dossier, that the touted, is proof of that collusion. Trumps team continues to cooperate with all investigations, while the democrats destroy evidence, plead the fifth, obstruct justice, and try to help spies leave the country.

    Simply put, after 8 months of investigating, not a single item that withstands scrutiny demonstrates any collusion between Trump and Russia. Actually, Trump stance on petrofuels reserves made him an enemy of the Russian economy. The Russian government assisted in creating a fake dossier with Hillary, to take Trump down. Further, even supposedly non partisan government employees, like FBI head Comey, leaked classified information and helped cover costs of the fake dossier. Even the assignment of a special prosecutor was based upon CRIMINAL activity from the special prosecutor friend, and head of the FBI, James Comey.

    Every time a news nugget comes out it demonstrates CRIMINAL activity, even TREASONOUS activity, by the DNC, Clintons, the media, and the Obama administration. Including unmasking political opponents for political spying. Do I think the above entities had motive to kill Seth Rich….yes. Do I think that the presence of Pakistani spies nearby on the day of his death was coincidence…..no. Do I believe that information from the DNC server, like logins and downloads, would provide information about Seth Rich’s activities and perhaps help solve his murder……yes. Do I believe that Seth Rich private computers, sticks, and laptops would be useful….yes.

    Has anyone noticed that NO attempt has been made to gather evidence into the organization whom had motive, means, and opportunity to commit this murder? That folks can’t be an accident.

    Pete

  8. WHEN WE ……..
    ……….think about it Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..Slutz had/has perfect motive to order a hit on Rich. She was in the perfect position to be the first to realise who was feeding Assange. At that point the word went out ……first to Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.Piggy then to others in the DNC. Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Slutz herself was caught in the EMAIL landslide, and she had no options except to resign.

  9. WHY………
    ……….did Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Slutz’s IT guy SUDDENLY decide to FLEE the country? Are the Seth Rich investigators getting close to him……….with a potential 1st degree murder rap? All of this suggests there is a lot to look at.

  10. Pete……..
    ………..once again your reasoning is squarely on the track. My reasoning differs slightly, but follows the same basic logic. The GARROTE DRAWS TIGHTER!

  11. CW……..
    ……….I have serious doubts that the lawsuit will be successful. It is also possible that it will never reach adjudication. I have reason to believe that it will be DISMISSED.

  12. citizenwells

    It does help keep alive the Seth Rich murder narrative.

  13. ……..I can’t help wonder which INSANE ASYLUM her hair stylist came from.

  14. AND NOW………
    ………after a lot of thought I am beginning to wonder if the detective (Wheeler) had a part in the murder of Seth Rich which would be masked if he could find a PATSY to frame.

  15. If your child was murdered you would be on TV asking people to help you find the killers.

    But not the parents of Seth Rich.

  16. fhl………….
    re; 6:08 PM
    ……..once again you’re right on the money!

  17. AND NOW…….
    …….another LUNATIC BLACK LIBERAL DEMOCRAT has signed on to the impeach Trump IRRATIONAL HYSTERIA. Al Green of Texas is now foaming at the mouth as he raves, and rants that Trump MUST be IMPEACHED NOW……….yet he offers no evidence of wrongdoing by Trump. It appears that Congressman Green has finally FLIPPED HIS WIG, and is now been guaranteed a room complete with LOONEY TOON ROCKER, at the local FUNNY FARM. Apparently Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Waters has a similar reservation at her local FUNNY FARM in the land of FROOTY TOOTY.

  18. Republicans Will Throw the 2018 Election to Be Back in Minority…For Impeachment

    Vanity | 8-2-17 | Self
    So this morning, watching ABC/MSNBC/CNN (8-2-17) only because it is what the commie gym manager has on, they are touting, “Trump’s history of trashing the GOP”…and some loser (R) Congressman, “Dent”, Pennsylvania…doesn’t matter who, just some loser anti-Trump goober who should be caned, like in Singapore. After watching this, I have a theory. I believe the R’s really want to be in the minority – and notice in the majority, they act the part anyway. Some time between now and November 2018, several R’s will somehow retire for “more time with their family”…Soros will have paid them off

  19. Half of them voted for Clinton, anyway. Makes perfect sense to me. They want back in minority so they can get trump impeached and all their wars and immigration plans can come to fruition. And they can say….the democrats did it.

    The GOP establishment is so rotten……..

  20. fhl…………..
    …………from my own perspective many of the GOPERS deserve the criticism that Trump sometimes uses on them. I am seeing a combination of INCOMPETENCY, compounded by IGNORANCE, and CHILDISH BEHAVIOR. I would be inclined to believe that YES the GOP could become the MINORITY once again perhaps even before 2018. Really sad…….but helps to confirm my beliefs that NOBODY CARES ABOUT THE COUNTRY ANYMORE. LIBERALS, AND CONSERVATIVES ARE LOCKED IN A BATTLE TOR THE BIGGEST SLICE OF THE PIE………..AND NEITHER PARTY CARES WHO THEY TRAMPLE ON AS THEY GRAB AT PIECES OF THE PIE.

  21. THE ……..
    ……..RUSSIA,RUSSIA RUSSIA IRRATIONAL HYSTERIA HAS BECOME ONE RING OF A THREE RING CIRCUS. THE OTHER TWO RINGS ARE IMPEACH,IMPEACH, IMPEACH, AND LIE ,LIE, LIE RESPECTIVELY. THE RINGMASTER OF EACH RING BEARS THE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS, AND EXTREMELY BIZARRE BEHAVIORAL CHARACTERISTICS OF ESCAPEES FROM A LOCAL LOONEY BIN.

  22. AND…..
    ……….AND WHEN I LOOK AT THE CHIEF RINGMASTER MZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. WATERS, IT BECOMES CLEAR THAT SHE INDEED FITS THE ROLE……….IN REALITY SHE IS ONLY A SMALL FISH WHEN SHE IS COMPARED TO PEOPLE LIKE MZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. IMPORTANT, MZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. PIGGY, MZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. WINE STINE, MZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. BOXCAR, ETC.

  23. THE FOREGOING PEOPLE………
    ……ARE ONLY A FEW OF THE OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITHS, who fancy themselves as being GODLY, and for that reason all people should grovel at their stinking feet, to obtain their permission to even hiccup.

  24. “OHHHHHHHHHHHH………..
    WE ARE SOOOOOOOOOO IMPORRRRRRRRTANT” THEY CHANT OVER AND OVER.

  25. AND THEREIN………
    …………LIES ONE FACET OF THE SEVERAL FACETED REASON FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY BEING WHAT IT IS TODAY……….(A PACK OF CRIMINALS LED BY A PACK OF LUNATICS, AND GENERAL MORONS).

  26. IF THE WALL………
    …….IS BUILT AND COVERED WITH SOLAR CELLS IT COULD BECOME THE WORLD’S LARGEST SOLAR POWER SOURCE. THE NUMBER OF MEGAWATTS THAT COULD BE PUT INTO THE US GRID IS ASTRONOMICAL. THIS FACTOR BY ITSELF COULD PAY FOR THE WALL AND THE SOLAR EQUIPMENT IN LESS THAN 10 YEARS. THIS ALONG WITH TOLL CHARGES TO PASS THROUGH IT COULD PAY FOR THE WALL EVEN FASTER. IF IT TURNS OUT TO BE AN INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY IT WOULD BE WORTHWHILE TO INVEST A LITTLE CASH IN THE WALL. THE POTENTIAL FOR A RETURN ON THE INVESTMENT, COULD BE LUCRATIVE……….ESPECIALLY IF IT IS TURNED INTO A MLP TRUST!

  27. THERE IS……….
    ………..no reason why the solar power generation from the wall could not be operated in the same manner as an oil pipeline company………many of which are MLP trusts. Some generate returns as high as 6- 8%, and in many cases is paid MONTHLY. If Trump is smart he will set up the wall as a TRUST, and let it be open to investment from all Americans. If Mexicans wish to invest that too would be ok.

  28. DWS takes my appetite away.

  29. fhl………
    ………….gives one reason to wonder about the sanity of both Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Slutz, as well as her hair stylist.

  30. Arrest the usurper!!!!!

  31. Hello……. Read this and cry? Boo Hoo
    Hillary to DUMP Bill? Globe Magazine (truth or fiction)?
    —————————–
    Furious Hillary Clinton has dumped horndog hubby Bill — once and for all — after discovering a hidden love nest atop his presidential library in Little Rock, Ark., where he beds starstruck beauties! Now fed-up Hillary — who lost to Donald Trump in last year’s presidential election — is talking to lawyers and demanding a $350 million divorce settlement, sources say. “Hillary doesn’t need Bill anymore — and his secret, taxpayer-funded sex den was the final humiliation,” says a source. “She confronted Bill and told him: ‘It’s OVER!’ ” President Barack Obama’s former secretary of state doesn’t “have any more use for Bill,” says the source. “She’s never running for office again so she doesn’t have to worry about how a divorce will impact her political career.”

  33. The ‘botched robbery’ is nothing but a theory. They have no evidence whatsoever that it happened that way but they insist that it be accepted as fact.

    We have another theory, with at least as much circumstantial evidence. I’d say a lot more circumstantial evidence. Yet we’re supposed to be derided as conspiracy theorists.

    How come their theory is supposed to be accepted over ours? They have no more evidence than we do. Less, in my book.

  34. The left says we’re conspiracy theorists and then they put out stuff like this about trump’s new press secretary claiming he’s giving gang signs.

  35. The ‘mooch’s’ vulgar language was supposed to be off the record and the new yorker’s reporter printed it anyway.
    The mooch was a bulldog and going to get rid of the leakers. He’s gone a few days and now the leaks start pouring out under Gen Kelly.
    Every time we get someone that’s supposed to placate the establishment it turns out to be a disaster.

  36. fhl……….
    ………the increase in leak activity seems to say it is somebody AT OR NEAR THE TOP at the WACKY HOUSE.

  37. AND NOW…….
    …………Mr. Mueller is NOW COMMITTED to PROVE the RAVINGS of the LUNATIC LEFT. He has impaneled a Grand jury. This is done so he can subpoena anything they believe is evidence. Obviously he hasn’t found anything worthwhile in normal investigative procedure so he thinks if he can subpoena all of everything he will find something. He is now OUT ON A REALLY SHAKY LIMB………it would not surprise me if there is now a person holding a saw to cut off the shaky limb while Mueller is out on it. You can indict a HAM SANDWICH, but indicting it doesn’t mean the HAM SANDWICH will be CONVICTED. Ultimately I expect Mueller to fail to prove any of the innuendo of the lunatic left to a prosecutable level.
    But now is the time for Congress to impanel another grand jury to investigate Hillary Clinton’s connection with the Russians while serving as SOS. What is good for the goose is also good for the GANDER!

  38. With regard to Mueller impaneling a grand jury. This is what I think and what I hope. The investigation has been ongoing and up until now, no need for the grand jury. Reuters is reporting this is looking into the meeting with
    Trump Jr, Manafort and Kushner…a relatively new leaked incident.

    Up until now, I don’t think they have found any criminal wrongdoing. Now with this latest story (meeting with Russian lawyer, trump Jr., etc) other revelations have come to light with the Democrats colluding with Russia.

    Fusion Gps, Glenn Simpson, former British spy, Christopher Steele are those involved in the salacious dossier on Trump. It has been reported that a democrat ally of Hillary Clinton had funded the whole research on the dossier. And it was that dossier that Comey held over Trump’s head in their very first meeting together. Trump said he felt like comey was threatening him with it. Most of that dossier has been proven to be false and or uncorroborated

    Also, even though the democrats did their darndest to stop the testimony of Bill Browder, he finally got his day in court. His testimony explained who all these actors are. Mr. Browder has been more or less a whistleblower and helped to create the Magnitsky act…which sanctioned Russians due to the murder of Magnitsky (Browder’s lawyer)…. If you are not aware of all this, you can google any or all of it. Mark Levin did an excellent job tying all the pieces together….He was offering a free version of that telecast on his Facebook page about a week ago.

    So bottom line, what I am hoping for is that during Mueller’s investigation, this recent information might have opened up a can of worms for the Clinton’s and the democrats.

    I don’t know if the special counsel can go that far but they have to take their investigations where it leads them. If they find wrongdoing (collusion with the Russians) from the democrats, I would believe they were not doing their job by ignoring it.

    Here is a link to Bill Browder

  39. HAR HAR HAR……….
    fhl………
    ……….I have a little different take on it all. First, no matter what they discover there will NEVER be a path taken which clearly leads into LUNATIC LIBERAL TERRITORY……..The principal reason for the GRAND JURY is to expand into Trump’s personal life and financial status, which will without a doubt include his income taxes. There has never been any PROBABLE CAUSE shown or thought to exist, and this can be used if Trump decides to take any convictions from the GRAND JURY to the SCOTUS. He has that right……….and the bastards behind all of this will then be vulnerable to anything Trump decides to use on them, either during his term in office or after the fact…….there is NO STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS. So the overeducated morons will feel severe financial RUIN, and probable IMPRISONMENT………..not to mention the fact that Russia might decide to press prosecution of the twisted bastards as well. They would be within their rights, since the sanctions levied against them came out of UNPROVEN FACT, AND IRRATIONAL HYSTERIA. The Russian will be able to prove financial injury by the US. This would undoubtedly be tried in the ICC…….and could ultimately cost America TRILLIONS of dollars.

  40. IN ADDITION……..
    ………….whether the left admits it or not, the investigation has been turned into a CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION by Mueller impaneling of the Grand Jury………WITH OUT PROBABLE CAUSE. This gives Trump the upper hand. At the time of the alleged criminal wrongdoing by Trump’s son Eric WAS NOT A member of the Trump staff. They cannot use the argument that he was automatically part of the staff because he is a blood relative. It will not hold water in court. THE PROSECUTION MUST PROVE INTENT.
    Now is the perfect moment for Trump to ask for a GRAND JURY INVESTIGATION INTO Hillary’s Russia connection WHILE HOLDING THE OFFICE OF SOS. This is now a time to fight fire with fire! Better still Trump could write an XO ordering the grand jury investigation of Hillary.

  41. IN ADDITION……….
    …………both GOP and Democratic Congressmen are introducing bills to IMPEDE, OR REMOVE PRESIDENTIAL POWER TO FIRE MUELLER SHOULD HE DECIDE TO. This is a PRESIDENTIAL power which they cannot legally impede or remove. For Congress to do that Trump will need to place it in the hands of the SCOTUS………..where it will most likely be overturned, and at which point Trump will OWN THE BASTARDS who attempted to usurp presidential power.

  42. AND NOW…….
    …………another female writer has been PROVEN to be a LIAR ,and a MORON. She accused Trump of deliberately sidestepping around a child in a wheel chair to avoid contact with him………..but she didn’t know that the moves of TR
    Trump were TOTALLY ,and continually photographed from the moment he first entered the room and the video clearly shows him bowing down to the little boy and shaking his hand.
    So I say to the British female writer……”YOU ARE A FILTHY,ODOROUS LIAR………..YOU NEED TO GET YOUR LIES STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU TELL THEM”. GO BACK TO YOUR HARRY POTTER FANTASY LAND WE DON’T NEED YOU HERE IN AMERICA.

  43. fhl………..
    ………once again your graphic post is DEAD ON! BTW I blend my own special mix of coffee!

  44. ……….In my 12:11 AM post I said ” For Congress to do that……..” My choice of words was wrong, I should have said “If Congress does that”……MY APOLOGIES!
