Being a member of the traditional, old school media carries with it certain responsibilities. It's part of the calling that makes a person choose a career in investigative journalism. So when you're at ABC and find out that one of your best reporters had a groundbreaking, world-changing story fully researched, totally vetted, completely corroborated and ready to air, but it got spiked because the bosses didn't want to upset influential people, you get to the bottom of it. When you find out a breaking story about the biggest pedophile ring of our times was ignored so the company wouldn't jeopardize its access to the Royal Family of another country, this calls for swift and decisive action.
And that's exactly what ABC News did when the Amy Robach video was leaked, exposing them as accomplices in helping a billionaire and his rich connections commit child rape. They wasted no time. Finding out who might have leaked the tape. Even if they work at a rival. And getting their ass fired:
Source - CBS News has fired a female staffer believed to have had access to the tape of Amy Robach raging against ABC News, Page Six understands.
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.”
Well done, ABC and CBS News. That's how you show the public you take your duties as the nation's Watchdog seriously. This is how you regain the respect the Fifth Estate has lost over the last few generations. By finding a woman who actually let the truth be known and taking her livelihood away from her. The only thing screams "integrity" louder than a giant megacorporation covering up for the worst kinds of monsters in the world just because they are rich, powerful and connected, is two giant, rival megacorporations that are supposed to be rivals working together to destroy someone for possibly being the one who let the world know what happened.
Just remember that just because the major broadcast networks knew that Epstein and his buddies were raping teenage girls, said nothing, let it go on and actively destroy anyone who told the real story, doesn't mean they're not on your side.
And besides, to me it's all worth it because those reports they did on the Royal Baby were straight fire. It's a great day for American Journalism.
