Fox News retracted a story Tuesday that connected the murder of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich with WikiLeaks and the email hacks that appeared to help the Trump campaign in the run-up to the presidential election.

The decision to pull the story was unusual for the network, and not all agreed with the move. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik (@davidfolkenflik) about the story.

This segment aired on May 24, 2017.
