Fox News Editor Thought Their Disastrous Seth Rich Story Would Be 'Vindicated'

I hope these guys get fired and run outta town.

As Fox News scrambled to contain the damage from its discredited reporting on murdered Democratic staffer Seth Rich in 2017, a top editor at the network stuck by the retracted story, going so far as to predict that the baseless coverage of Rich’s murder would eventually be "vindicated.”

That revelation comes via newly released emails from FoxNews.com’s then-deputy managing editor Greg Wilson, as well as others recently unsealed in litigation between Rich's parents and Fox. Those emails offer a glimpse into the internal fallout from Fox's story, as newsroom figures tried to figure out how groundless claims about the DNC hack that summer had ever made it on air and one source offered a surreptitious office meeting to Fox editors in an attempt to salvage the story.

2. "...groundless claims about the DNC HACK"?

Do they mean the hacking of the DNC, or is the author of this article calling Seth Rich a hack?

3. There were claims from RW and Russian sources that Assange received the emails

from Seth Rich, in an effort to misdirect the blame and cover for Russia.
