A lawsuit filed against Fox News today claims that the cable news channel created a fake news story under supervision of the Trump administration, NPR reports. The story claimed that the Democratic National Committee was somehow connected to the death of Seth Rich, a DNC staffer who was shot last year in an unsolved case. It was retracted a week later by the network. The complainant, a Fox News contributor named Rod Wheeler, claims that the network put words in his mouth in order to support the claims made in the story, and did so with urging from the White House.
