Right now, the media is going ballistic because Republicans and Donald Trump want to know the identity of the whistleblower on the Ukraine complaint.
It wreaks of hypocrisy, however, because CBS just fired one of its reporters because she was tied into a whistleblower report on ABC that was revealed by Project Veritas (PV).
Outed and Fired
This entire incident was months in the making, as it goes all the way back to an original Jeffrey Epstein story.
Amy Robach, who was at the time working for ABC News, accused her network of killing a story on the accused child trafficker and pedophile.
The story featured an interview with Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a woman who alleged she was abused by Epstein as a minor.
ABC News stated the story did not meet its standards, so it was killed, but they continued to investigate the matter.
This, however, is the same network that reported on the fake news video of the Syrian attack that was actually a private gun range in Kentucky, so perhaps ABC should rethink its standards.
According to Robach, though, the story was killed because it linked Prince Andrew to Epstein and the network did not want to touch that hot potato.
In the undercover PV video, she stated, “I’ve had this story for three years.
“I tried for three years to get it on to no avail, and now it’s all coming out and it’s like these new revelations.
“And I freaking had all of it.
“I’m so pissed right now.”
The staffer fired for allegedly leaking the Robach tape, however, says she is not the person that leaked the video to PV and was wrongly terminated by CBS.
Enter Megyn Kelly
Kelly has been out of the news business since she was terminated by “Today.”
There has been a lot of anticipation about her return, but it now appears she will act as an independent rather than bow to a network.
Kelly is hitting the scene with a major splash with an exclusive interview with Ashley Bianco, the fired staffer.
Kelly has finally joined Instagram and her first story is this interview.
Kelly stated, “The employee who sort of marked that clip in the system and then moved on to CBS got fired this week because they suspected she leaked this thing to this Project Veritas. … Well, we just sat down with her in an exclusive interview.
“And we got the full story, and I think you’re going to be fascinated by it.”
There are few people in the news industry that would be able to pull off an independent run on their personal accounts, but Megyn Kelly is surely in that class.
