Matt Vespa has been covering the debacle over at CBS and ABC regarding a video clip released by Project Veritas. CBS News recently fired a producer because they thought the producer was responsible for leaking a video clip of ABC News anchor Amy Robach to Project Veritas. The off-air clip shows the ABC News anchor expressing frustration about the network spiking her story on alleged child predator Jeffrey Epstein. In the clip, Robach complains that she "had everything" on Jeffrey Epstein and says she tried for 3 years to get ABC to run the story.
Earlier today, Megyn Kelly released an exclusive interview with the former producer, Ashley Bianco, who CBS fired under the belief that she had made the clip while working for ABC News and then sent the video to Project Veritas. In the interview, Bianco tells Megyn Kelly that she did in fact clip the video that was leaked to Project Veritas, but she denied sending the clip to anybody. Bianco says she had never even heard of Project Veritas before her firing from CBS and says it's common for producers at ABC to clip videos of off-air moments.
After Bianco's interview with Megyn Kelly, James O'Keefe of Project Veritas stated that his source for the off-air video is still working at ABC News, and O'Keefe released a statement made by that source addressing the "wrongfully accused" and defending his or her decision to leak the video.
“It is terrible that you have been lashed out at by the company," the statement reads. "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.”
