For several years, fake, foundation-funded “progressive” media (propaganda) have been trying to shame people into shutting up about the unsolved murder of Seth Rich. Rich worked at the DNC, where those Hillary Clinton emails originated.

You should know that Rich’s name first surfaced when Julian Assange personally mentioned him in interviews, implying that he was connected to the release of sensitive documents from the DNC. No one has ever disproven this. Period.

 

Judge Amos Mazzant of U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas ruled Wednesday that the $57 million suit brought by Ed Butowsky makes plausible claims that the network may be liable for defamation for a series of online stories about Butowsky’s role in publicizing assertions that the murdered DNC staffer, Seth Rich, may have been involved in leaking Democratic emails.

Judge greenlights libel suit against NPR over Seth Rich reports

 

NPR argued that many of the claims in its reports, like assertions that Fox’s reporting on the Rich murder was “baseless” and “fake news,” amounted to opinion and not the kind of factual claims that can be the basis for a libel suit.

But Mazzant disagreed.

“The statements made by Folkenflik were made as verifiable statements of fact,” the judge wrote. “The statements at issue were not merely expressing a subjective view. Looking at the context of the verifiable facts, nothing shows the statements expressed Folkenflik’s opinion or merely offer Folkenflik’s personal perspective on disputed facts.”
