  • ABC Continues Hunt For Amy Robach ‘Leaker’ After Getting Young Woman Fired From CBS

    The same networks working to protect the identity of a leaker that may or may not be ‘Eric C’ with respect to impeachment, they are DESPERATE to ‘out’ their own whistleblower. It seems a little bit ethically dishonest, doesn’t it? Someone can release information intended to be damaging to the President without any fear of contradiction or scrutiny, but ABC has already reached out to another network to request the firing of someone ABC had assumed was the whistleblower. The person they had fired maintained her innocence and that was upheld by Project Veritas itself, who published a message sent...
  • It Is Shameful That ABC News and CBS News Are Punishing the Epstein Leaker

    It gives me no pleasure to report that I agree, on just this one thing, with Donald Trump Jr., who went on The View Thursday to say he shouldn’t be condemned for naming the Ukraine whistle-blower when ABC News is cracking down on its own Jeffrey Epstein–related leaker. This is a matter on which Trump Jr. is both self-serving and hypocritical, but let us acknowledge this broken clock. News organizations should not hunt down leakers in their ranks, not when it’s a matter of valid public interest — specifically, how the press reported on a serial abuser — even if...

    Project Veritas broke a scandal a couple of days ago, featuring an unwitting ABC News anchor, Amy Robach, fuming angrily that she had the Jeffrey Epstein scoop three years ago, with solid reporting, and ABC News refused to run it. Unlike Ronan Farrow, who quit NBC News on principle after the network spiked his Harvey Weinstein story and took his scoop to the New Yorker, (winning a richly deserved Pulitzer prize for it), Robach, for whatever reason, stayed on the job and decided to get along to go along, keeping her mouth shut. She's obviously found herself in hot water since the Veritas tape, and...

    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 Guiffre. A TV source said the woman was let go on Wednesday, after ABC execs alerted CBS.

    On Tuesday, the undercover investigative journalism outfit Project Veritas released a video of ABC News anchor Amy Robach venting about ABC spiking her Jeffrey Epstein scoop three years ago. ... ABC News defended its refusal to air the story. In a statement, the network said, “At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards for air.” But where were these strict “standards” when ABC News covered the obviously fantastical claims of Jussie Smollett?

    The bombshell claim that ABC News "quashed" a story on allegations against Jeffrey Epstein has drawn new scrutiny on the controversy's ties to its own star anchor, George Stephanopoulos. Project Veritas, whose controversial founder, James O'Keefe, has described himself as a "guerrilla journalist," published the footage that featured ABC News anchor Amy Robach claiming the Disney-owned network refused to air an interview she conducted with one of Epstein’s accusers and even suggesting she'd uncovered new information about Epstein's ties to former President Bill Clinton as his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was running for president. "I've had the...

    FULL TITLE: Project Veritas Exposes ABC News: Network Allegedly Killed Epstein Story Implicating Bill Clinton, British Family, and More UPDATE: ABC News responded to Project Veritas' story by denying that the network killed the alleged Epstein story. The network claims Robach's original reporting did not meet editorial standards and could not be verified. Anchor Amy Robach claims this clip was simply due to a "private moment of frustration." Here’s ABC’s response to a Project Veritas video of Amy Robach expressing frustration that her Jeffrey Epstein piece didn’t run. Robach: “I was caught in a private moment of frustration. ... In...

    If Hunter carries himself publicly as he did in this interview, people will neither like him nor trust him—and that may spell trouble for Joe. The fourth Democratic primary debate offered yet another opportunity for former vice president Joe Biden to dodge questions about his son Hunter’s shady business activities. While his father was running the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy, Hunter was serving on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company, earning up to $50,000 per month despite zero experience in the energy sector.In Tuesday night’s debate, when Anderson Cooper questioned Biden about the impropriety of this dynamic, Biden...

    Are you distrustful of the coverage of what is happening now in northern Syria between the Kurds and the Turkish army? You have good reason to be. ABC aired supposedly shocking footage Monday morning purporting to be from the frontline battle between the Syrian Kurds and the invading Turks. The only problem is the footage appears to come from a nighttime demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky. After seeing a comment from Wojciech Pawelczyk, I began making some calls. As of this writing, it appears that this video is a hoax, and ABC has pulled...

    ABC News aired a video on Sunday that host Tom Llamas said depicted a Turkish attack in northern Syria against Kurdish civilians. Turkey is indeed pushing into Syria and slaughtering Kurds along the way, but the video ABC News played last night is from a military gun demonstration in Kentucky that was published to YouTube in 2017. “This video, right here, appearing to show Turkey’s military bombing Kurd civilians in a Syrian border town,” Llamas said on the October 13 broadcast as the video played. But the explosions in the video are identical to explosions seen in a video titled,...

    The fake news mainstream media is working overtime to push their propaganda to smear President Trump. The latest lies coming from the media is the footage of Turkish fighters in northern Syria. ABC News played video this weekend of Turkey bombing the Kurds in Syria. But the video is not from Syria. The video is from a Knob Creek Machine Gun shoot in America back in April 2016 and loaded in 2017 to YouTube. You can see the onlookers watching the entire display.

    Many Americans who watch George Stephanopoulos on ABC News in the mornings have no idea what he used to do for a living. Along with another media hack, James Carville, this smug little person was once in charge of the Bill Clinton political “war room” and was widely credited with helping foist Slick Willy BJ” Clinton and his corrupt wife, Hillary, on the country.

    Late Wednesday evening, ABC News reported that Serhiy Leshchenko, an "advisor" to Ukrainian President Zelensky, claimed that discussing the Biden case was a precondition of him having communications with President Trump. "This issue was raised many times. I know that Ukrainian officials understood." According to ABC News, "The Trump administration’s alleged insistence that the two leaders discuss a prospective investigation into Biden, one of the president’s political opponents, casts his July 25 conversation with Zelenskiy in a new light." Except it probably doesn't. It turns out that Serhiy Leshchenko advised Zelensky's transition team in April, but is no longer an...

    ABC host George Stephanopoulos said he regrets dining with Jeffrey Epstein about a year after the accused sex trafficker finished his first stint in jail for pleading guilty to soliciting an underage prostitute. “That dinner was the first and last time I’ve seen him,” Stephanopoulos said in an email to The New York Times. “I should have done more due diligence. It was a mistake to go.” Epstein hosted Stephanopoulos and a slew of other media insiders — including news anchors Katie Couric and Charlie Rose, comedian Chelsea Handler and director Woody Allen — at his Manhattan townhome in December...

    Video at link. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) appeared on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday to discuss the immigration crisis plaguing America's southern border. Host Martha Raddatz pressed Tlaib on the fact that she voted against funding a $4.6 billion emergency border bill, something Customs and Border Patrol officials have said are desperately needed. Tlaib defended her position and even became defensive about her vote. "Do you know what the CBP [Customs and Border Patrol] agents on the ground said, Martha? Martha, do you know what they said?" Tlaib asked. "What did they say on the ground? Ask a CBP agent....
