‘It Stayed In The System’ — Was The Wrong Employee Fired For Leaking Robach’s ‘Hot Mic’ Epstein Rant?

Written by K. Walker on November 8, 2019

She says that she didn’t leak the video… was she fired for nothing?

Ashley Bianco was an employee at ABC when Amy Robach made her frustrated “hot mic” rant about the news agency spiking the Jeffrey Epstein story in 2016. You know, that Presidential election year when the wife of one of the men Robach claimed had been connected to Epstein was running for President.

It was a shocker that ABC had killed the Epstein story (pun intended) for not meeting their “editorial standards” while trotting out Michael Avenatti’s nutty client, Julie Swetnick, claiming with zero evidence that Brett Kavanaugh had been involved in a drugging/gang-rape ring while he was a sophomore in high school and wore his school uniform while doing it.

In an exclusive interview with Megyn Kelly, Bianco admits to accessing the video and marked it within the internal server to watch later because it was a source of chatter among ABC employees. She says that she did not share the video or make an external copy of it or share it in any way.

Within a matter of hours of Project Veritas airing the video, ABC was able to identify Bianco as the employee that had accessed the video.

Bianco had recently moved to CBS, but two days ago, she was fired after ABC gave CBS a “curtesy” warning that Bianco may have been the one who leaked the tape to Project Veritas.

It’s not a surprise that James O’Keefe of Project Veritas has been tweeting quite a bit about this story.

Bianco was fired by CBS without any proof that she was the leaker and ABC even admitted that they weren’t positive that she had sent the tape to Project Veritas.

The whistleblower who actually did send the video to Project Veritas has written a statement addressing ABC News, ABC employees, Amy Roback, those wrongfully accused, and others.

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.

Watch Bianco speak with Megyn Kelly:

So, is the coverup worse than the crime? In this case, they’re equally horrendous.

ABC killing the Jeffrey Epstein story is absolutely horrific, but now, they’ve gone after a young woman — who is seemingly innocent — and had her fired from her job to cover for their lack of journalistic integrity.

CBS did ABC’s bidding.

Because the Media(D) is actively covering for each other now.

This is very bad news.

It took Project Veritas to expose how corrupt the Media(D) actually is.

David Burge sums it up perfectly:
