Even as the media bends itself into pretzels to protect the Ukraine whistleblower, they are firing whistleblowers who shine a light on media malfeasance.
If that isn’t typical leftist hypocrisy, what is?
In other words, the media thinks whistleblowers are fine when they are destroying Republicans but when they are shining a light on the corruption o the media, it’s firing time.
You’ll recall on Tuesday when Washington Sentinel reported that ABC News reporter Amy Robach was seen on video admitting that ABC had the full story about pedophile and close Clinton pal Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes long before they finally broke across the media. But ABC scuttled the story because it would hurt the Clintons.
Well, that story was leaked by a former ABC employee who had since joined CBS.
Now, CBS has bowed to a demand by ABC to fire this employee who blew the whistle on ABC’s attempts to cover things up to aid the Clintons.
Per Projet Veritas:
As a direct result of Project Veritas exposing ABC’s “quashing” of ABC Anchor Amy Robach’s interview of alleged Jeffrey Epstein victim Virginia Roberts (Giuffre), the network finally decided to take action.
Instead of focusing on who ‘quashed’ the Epstein story and why, ABC chose to initiate a witch-hunt looking for a leaker.
The Blaze captured and tweeted Donald Trump Jr. addressing this very issue today on ABC’s The View:
ABC is right now chasing down a whistleblower about all of the Epstein stuff because those stories were killed. So, if we’re going to have the conversation about the outrage about whistleblowers.
In an industry dependent on sources, insiders and leaks, it’s hypocritical of ABC to hunt down and punish a woman with a conscience, who was more concerned about protecting other women than protecting ABC’s access to “Will and Kate.”
What the public deserves is for ABC to come clean on why newsworthy information about a pedophile was kept from the public for three years. Moreover, who at ABC quashed the story, and why?
ABC reportedly notified CBS about a former ABC employee who allegedly accessed the video and, until now, was employed at CBS.
Today, CBS FIRED that female employee!
From Page Six:
“CBS News has fired a female staffer believed to have had access to the tape of Amy Robach raging against ABC, Page Six understands.”
“The staffer previously worked at ABC News and had access to audio of ABC anchor Robach caught on a hot mic complaining her bosses had failed to air her interview with Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre.”
“A TV source said the woman was let go on Wednesday, after ABC execs alerted CBS.”
“As we reported, it is not known whether the woman leaked the tape, recorded in July, to conservative website Project Veritas – or showed it to others who passed it on.”
“A CBS spokesperson declined to comment.”
The worst sort of hypocrisy.
But also the worst sort of partisan BS proving that the media only works for Democrats.
