Story on DNC staffer's murder dominated conservative media -- hours later it fell apart - May. 16, 2017

For months, right-wing media outlets have floated unproven theories that Rich was the person who provided Wikileaks thousands of internal DNC emails, and that his death might have been connected with the supposed leak.


Well, I was faked out by this news. And heck, I suppose it still might be true that poor Seth was murdered by the DNC.

I guess we are past the point where you can rely on any news outlet. There's a Russian word for this, I believe -- the complete loss of confidence in the truth of anything. Somebody pass the wodka.
