Seth Rich is the killer, not the victim. But the media in general and mainstream news outlets in particular continue to treat his murder, and the ensuing cover-up, as being primarily about the Russians and his alleged leaking of embarrassing emails, rather than the death of an innocent young man who was gunned down in the middle of the night not far from the family home on the Northwest side of Washington D.C.
