Court revives suit alleging Fox News inflicted 'emotional torture' on Seth Rich family

A federal appeals court on Friday revived a lawsuit against Fox News brought by the parents of slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, concluding there are plausible claims that the conservative cable network was party to a “campaign of emotional torture.”

Conspiracy theories, a bridge too far?
Far ranging implications for a lot of people if such a case were to prevail.
The fallout would be enormous.
Still, if our news networks are screwing with us, that is a very bad thing.
They always have to a much lesser extent, until profit became a central tenet of newsgathering.
Suddenly it was no longer a public service, it was a profit oriented business.

If news is a consumer product, it is important to know if such products have defects.
