CBS News Fires Staffer Who Had Access to Leaked Hot Mic Video of Amy Robach Revealing Network Spiked Epstein Story
Earlier this week James O’Keefe and Project Veritas released never-before-seen video involving ABC News and a cover-up involving deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
An ABC News insider leaked the shelved video of “Good Morning America” co-host Amy Robach on a hot mic explaining how her network spiked an investigative report on Jeffrey Epstein, “the most prolific pedophile of our time.”
The investigation implicated Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew.
CBS News sided with a pedophile and fired a female staffer who had access to the leaked video, according to Page Six.
We reported on Wednesday that ABC News chiefs discovered a former employee could be behind the leak of the damning footage of Robach slamming the network for shelving her interview with Jeffrey Epstein’s “sex slave” Virginia Roberts Giuffre. Sources told Page Six that a former staffer had access to the footage of Robach as she aired her frustrations over a hot mike — and that employee was now believed to be working at CBS.
A TV source told us later on Wednesday that the woman was let go from CBS, after ABC execs alerted the rival network.
ABC sources confirmed to us that they’d informed counterparts at CBS about the staffer “as a courtesy.”
ABC News responded Tuesday and claimed they didn’t have the right resources to vet the Epstein story that they passed on.
Good Morning America co-host Amy Robach said in a statement that her network didn’t air the Epstein story because they could “not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standards.”
Recall, it was ABC News that allowed Brian Ross to report fake news on General Flynn in December of 2017 which ultimately caused the DOW to plunge more than 350 points.
Citing one anonymous source, Brian Ross claimed during an ABC special report that General Flynn was going to testify that then-candidate Donald Trump told him to contact the Russians — Ross then walked back his report and said it was ‘president-elect Trump’ not ‘candidate Trump’ who directed Flynn to speak to the Russians which of course completely obliterated his ‘bombshell report.’
But ABC News has ‘editorial standards’ that the Epstein story didn’t meet which is why they shelved the report.
James O’Keefe warned Wednesday that sources are giving Project Veritas more ABC ‘insider tape.’
