Federal investigation of Fox News expands. Wait, what federal investigation of Fox News?

What? A fraud investigation?
Courtesy of CNN: 

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.

    Couldn't happen to a more deserving recipient. Perhaps if emotion is removed from the news, we'll have fewer pissed off people.

    Great news! In other news, Trump interrupted questions about China to hand out copies of his electoral map numbers. No, I am not making this up.

      I saw part of his NRA rally...he spent 5 minutes telling the same "electoral College" story he's been preening about since November. This guy's attention span is about 5 seconds.

    Oh please, oh please, please may this thing finally bust wide open and the whole shitbag gets exposed and finally trashed. And take down a whole lot of others with them. In a very public and devastating manner. It would make my decade.

      Hedgewytch, I read 'whole shitbag gets EXPLODED,' that made me sit up and laugh heartily. Of course all of the trumpists and trumplings were/are included in the really large bags of shit.

      Thanks for the laugh and positive forward moving progressives movements!

      America and the world deserves better than what Vlad delivered (and we paid for) on November 8, 2016.

    This investigation may be the one about Fox calling payouts to women who settled out of court as compensation instead of what they really were: payouts resulting from litigation.

    Apparently it's not nice to mislead your investors.

    Fraud? Does that mean they are going after them for making up shit they call news. Have said it wasn't Fox news it was Fox opinion.

    According to Rachel, one of the cases Preet Bahara was working on was Faux news until he was suddenly fired by fatass cheeto.
