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.
So anyway, sorry for the millions of people who now believe a completely untrue story, and for destroying the reputation of an innocent man who can't defend himself because he's dead, and for putting his family through hell. Our bad. (That last part must have been accidentally lopped off the end of their statement)
