Dallas-based investor sues NPR for $57M for pointing to him as source of Seth Rich story retracted

Dallas-based investor sues NPR for $57 million for pointing to him as source of Seth Rich story retracted by Fox News


Dallas-based investor Ed Butowsky is suing NPR and reporter David Folkenflik for $57 million in damages after Folkenflik reported that a federal lawsuit stated that Butowsky had worked with the White House to influence a retracted Fox News report that enflamed conspiracy theories about murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.

Fox News published and then retracted story in May 2017 which hinted that Rich sent internal DNC emails to Wikileaks, stating that the report didnít meet their editorial standards. D.C. police believe Richís 2016 death was a robbery gone wrong.

Butowsky, who has been a guest on Fox News, filed the lawsuit Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. The lawsuit said Butowsky has suffered loss of business and mental and physical suffering because of the alleged defamation.
