|What? A fraud investigation?|
The U.S. Justice Department's investigation of Fox News has widened to include a second law enforcement agency.
Financial crimes experts from the United States Postal Inspection Service are now involved, according to four sources connected to the investigation.
Mail fraud and wire fraud cases are part of the USPIS purview.
Investigators from both the USPIS and the Justice Department have been conducting interviews in recent weeks -- including with some former Fox staffers -- to obtain more information about the network's managers and business practices, the sources said.
The existence of the federal investigation was revealed in February. At the time Fox News and its parent company 21st Century Fox said they had not been subpoenaed, but a spokeswoman said, "we have been in communication with the U.S. Attorney's office for months — we have and will continue to cooperate on all inquiries with any interested authorities."
Okay first off how come I did not know that the Justice Department was investigating Fox News?
I mean I knew about all of the allegations of sexual harassment, and now racism, but this is a goddamn fraud investigation.
I cannot imagine how this one slipped under the radar.
So now not only are those working for Donald Trump being investigated by the Feds, but even the conservative news outlets spewing propaganda for Donald Trump are being investigated by the Feds.
Now I have to go out and buy an even bigger bag of popcorn, cause it looks like Fox News is about to take center stage in the "Karma comes to kick the shit out of Right Wing news outlets" category.
