Report: Fox killed Stormy Daniels hush money story before election

The New Yorker reported Monday that former FoxNews.com reporter Diana Falzone “had obtained proof” of the affair and confirmed it with several key sources, including Daniels and her ex-husband.

Falzone had also obtained emails between Daniels’s attorney and Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen. The emails showed that Cohen had proposed to pay cash to Daniels in exchange for a nondisclosure agreement, according to the New Yorker.

But the story was never published, with former Fox News executive Ken LaCorte ultimately telling her to “let it go.”

“Good reporting, kiddo. But Rupert [Murdoch] wants Donald Trump to win. So just let it go,” LaCorte reportedly said.
