stification that there is no evidence to suspect political involvement in Rich’s death despite strong indications from multiple sources, including Wikileaks, that this may have in fact been the case. Extreme censorship in the media of the story fails to account for a botched and corruption tinted investigation by the D.C. Police Department. Additionally, close connections between the DNC, White House and individuals at the center of the incident do nothing but continue give rise to accusations of a cover up.
I. Concerted Efforts To Censor Reporting On Seth Rich’s Murder
On May 15th, FOX 5 DC carried claims from private investigator Rod Wheeler that Rich was in contact with Wikileaks prior to his death. American media figures and political groups have subsequently engaged in an unprecedented frenzy of attacks against media outlets who even mention the story. Fox News anchor Sean Hannity faced a frenzy of attacks on his sponsors, which were spearheaded by one time Republican operative turned Democrat David Brock’s Media Matters. Disobedient Media has previously reported that another one of Brock’s organizations, Shareblue, is partially owned by the government of China; who concealed their purchase of shares in the group using a phony mining contract. Brock’s ties to foreign interests may mean that he is in violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act, 22 U.S.C. § 614.
Alternative media sources reporting on the story have also faced pushback and censorship for their coverage of Seth Rich. On May 24th, 2017, World Net Daily reported that they were slapped with a 12 hour ban by Twitter after running a story that revealed Democrat National Committee (DNC) official Donna Brazile had warned off a private eye looking in to Seth Rich’s murder. San Diego based One American News also had its website taken offline after an employee from the outlet posted online asking about details of the case, revealing that OAN planned to run a report on Seth Rich.
Attacks against investigators looking into Seth Rich have been lead largely by the Washington Post, who has claimed that the story is a conspiracy theory without fielding much basis for such accusations. The decision of the Post to employ Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta as a contributing columnist only serves to undermine their ability to factually report on Seth Rich’s murder in a manner which maintains a commitment to journalistic ethics and integrity. Oliver Darcy from CNN also posted yesterday and revealed that he had badgered Fox News into censoring one of their reporters who was posting about Seth Rich on Twitter. Darcy was recently blasted by Julian Assange on Twitter for misleadingly citing him in an article about Assange’s intention to appear on the radio.
