Skip to comments.CBS Attempt to Fire ABC’s Whistleblower Goes Terribly Wrong
Posted on 11/09/2019 6:27:25 AM PST by EyesOfTX
What can you even say about these corrupt media organizations at this point? Or perhaps we should quote Hillary Clinton and ask, At this point, what difference does it make?
Well, if you are a former producer for ABC, and as of Thursday, CBS as well named Ashley Bianco, it makes a lot of difference. Ms. Bianco finds herself out looking for a new job today because executives at both fake TV news operations conspired to summarily fire her based on the false accusation that she was the whistleblower who leaked a video of ABC reporter Amy Robach to Project Veritas.
Ms. Robach, who serves as one of the hosts for the ABC fake news program 20/20, was caught on a live mic this summer describing how executives at the network had killed her carefully-sourced and researched story chronicling the exploits of now-dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, complete with his connections to Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew, among others. That all took place three years ago, back when the Pantsuit Princess just happened to be the Democrat presidential nominee.
Quite the coincidence there.
The release of that video by Project Veritas led to a witch hunt by executives at both ABC and CBS to find their internal whistleblower and ruin his or her life. Ironically, these same executives at these same two fake news networks have instructed their fake news people to pretend to not know the name of Eric Ciaramella, the fake whistleblower in the Democrats fake impeachment scam. Hashtag, hypocrisy.
On Thursday, CBSs executives fired poor Ms. Bianco based on what they claimed was digital evidence of her having bookmarked the video of Ms. Robach for later viewing. Pretty thin gruel there, but hey, this is the fake news media, where pesky things like truth, evidence and proof are just silly concepts that only folks out in Flyover Country talk about anymore.
On Friday, two major events happened almost simultaneously that put the lie to the contention by CBS and ABC that Ms. Bianco is the hero who leaked the tape:
First, Megyn Kelly released a video of an interview she had conducted with Ms. Bianco on her YouTube Channel. Heres the clip:
Second, project Veritas released the text of an open letter the actual whistleblower wrote to the public and his fellow employees at ABC, where he remains still employed. Here is the key passage from that letter:
To my fellow man:
I came forward with this information bearing no motives other than to have this information public. I did not and do not seek any personal gain from this information whether it be financial or otherwise and will always decline. When I became aware of this moment, I had the same reaction as many of you did. Anger, confusion and sadness. I care not about petty political quarrels and only hope for the best in all of us.
To my fellow ABC News employees:
Ive walked the halls experiencing similar feelings we are all having right now. All of you regardless of your own personal differences in one form or another do an outstanding job. I sincerely enjoy working with each and every one of you and will continue to do so throughout our careers.
To those wrongfully accused:
It is terrible that you have been lashed out at by the company. I know some may put the burden of guilt on me, but my conscience is clear. The actions of the company towards you are the result of their own and not anyone else. The public outcry, from coast to coast, of all people, creeds, and political affiliations, is clear. I have not one doubt that there will always be support for you, and you will have prosperous careers. For neither you, nor I, have done anything wrong.
So, the management thugs who hold power at ABC and CBS put an innocent employee out on the streets all as a result of their ongoing zeal to protect a convicted pedophile and his longtime associates and alleged customers.
Folks, it doesnt get much lower than that.
That is all.
I’m sure they were men although I don’t know for sure. I’m not saying that the men are pure in motive, I’m just pointing out that women don’t seem to come forward very often unless they have a personal motive ie, sex harrassment .
This is the state of your fake news today.
They don’t investigate, and fact-check the stories they report, why would they investigate, and fact check rumors prior to firing someone?
I hope she gets a very good no-holds-barred attorney that sues them for hundreds of millions of dollars as this will leave a lifelong stain on her reputation.
“Were Ms. Robachs supervisors men or women?”
These days, how can you know?
You are a bigot for asking such a vile question.
If this doesn’t prove there’s a “deep-state” management and control of corrupt US corporate oligarch media, I don’t know what does.
Tell me - in what other industry would top management circle wagons to hunt down a former employee, who told a truth about one of them. AND do it so quickly?
Would McDonald’s demand Burger King fire one of their employees who told some truth about burger size? Would GM hunt down and have fired an employee of Toyota who made a comment about gas-mileage?
This episode is a stark illustration of the fact that the MSM are collaborators instead of competitors. Just like the two major political parties. Hence, uni-media and uni-party.
“”To Amy Robach:
You are the only person deserving of an apology. I am most certainly sorry.””
I don’t understand why he doesn’t think the gal who got fired deserves an apology. Did he/she write this BEFORE that happened?
I refuse to call them media whores. It unfairly disparages all the hard working whores in the world.
Not sure she has connections to Veritas, the story says she wasn’t the one who leaked and includes the message from the real leaker who is still employed by ABC.
I wager that Ms. Bianco is going to be very, very wealthy.
Unfortunately, too many armchair cynics in Freeperland are all "ho hum" over each PV bombshell. While they slather more peanut butter on their sandwiches and burp in their armchairs, criticizing, criticizing, criticizing and shrugging their shoulders muttering "nothing's gonna happen", there are fortunately patriots out there doing real work and helping to expose the Deep State beast.
I am now very confident that the Deep State is in the process of being taken down and that President Trump is on the verge of doing what others here have said is impossible.
The whistleblower wrote it after she was fired to make it clear they fired the wrong person.
CBS and ABC are punishing her as a scapegoat. Theyre destroying her career as a warning to others not to leak.
Theyre also not apologizing to the young girls raped due their own inaction. Had they reported the story, how many girls would have been spared? They are complicit with child rape and have yet to apologize to the victims. .
‘Why doesnt Fox News snap her right up??’
Because with the addition of the slime ball piss ryan as director at fox, they are trying to become more like CBS and ABC...fake, lying and fraudulent news all day long!
I posted earlier about the 1987 journalism round-table discussion on "Ethics in America" that resulted in learning about the "Journalists first, Americans second" mantra in the media.
Now we're seeing a new trend of "journalists first, humanity second," when their protective silence results in the continuance of crimes against humanity, not just hypothetical ambushes of American soldiers.
James Godlston ABC news president
Susan Zirinsky CBS news president
Noah Oppenheim and Andrew Lack NBC news heads
Jeff Zucker.... CNN Head inquisitor
I mean come on......really
Does this ever ever ever change anymore?
Its like required pedigree to run an alphabet now
Liberal urban Jewish and all went to the same schools
Diversity is our strength dont forget.
Whistleblowers who harm the Deep State must be destroyed and the media/Democrats think that is just fine.
