ABC News' Amy Robach, best known as co-anchor of 20/20, claimed that ABC killed her story about convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking of minors three years ago in sensational hot microphone footage leaked Tuesday.

In the footage, reportedly taken in August and published online Tuesday by the right-wing activist group Project Veritas, Robach, 46, says: "I've had this story for three years. I've had this interview with [Epstein accuser] Virginia Roberts. We would not put it on the air. First of all I was told, 'Who is Jeffrey Epstein? No one knows who that is. This is a stupid story.'"

"Then the palace found out we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us in a million different ways," Robach continues, referring to the British royal that Roberts alleged in a 2015 court filing Epstein trafficked her to when she was 17.

In the clip, Robach claims that ABC feared it would lose interview access to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, thus contributing to the story being dropped. Buckingham Palace did not return a request for comment on Robach's claims.

"[Roberts] told me everything," Robach says in the clip. "She had pictures. She had everything. She was in hiding for 12 years. We convinced her to come out. We convinced her to talk to us. It was unbelievable what we had. Clinton. Everything."

A frustrated Robach can then be heard saying: "I tried for three years to get it on [air]. And now it's all coming out. I'm so pissed right now. Every day I get more and more pissed. What we had was unreal."

In a statement to Newsweek, ABC News said: "At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards to air, but we have never stopped investigating the story. Ever since we've had a team on this investigation and substantial resources dedicated to it. That work has led to a two-hour documentary and 6-part podcast that will air in the new year."
In a separate statement, Robach said: "As a journalist, as the Epstein story continued to unfold last summer, I was caught in a private moment of frustration. I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts didn't air because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC's editorial standards about her allegations."

"My comments about Prince Andrew and her allegation that she had seen Bill Clinton on Epstein's private island were in reference to what Virginia Roberts said in that interview in 2015. I was referencing her allegations—not what ABC News had verified through our reporting. The interview itself, while I was disappointed it didn't air, didn't meet our standards. In the years since no one ever told me or the team to stop reporting on Jeffrey Epstein, and we have continued to aggressively pursue this important story," continued Robach.

In an August interview with NPR, Roberts—now Virginia Giuffre—said she was never told why the interview she filmed with ABC in 2015 didn't air. "I viewed the ABC interview as a potential game-changer," she told NPR.

But the MSM would have said something!
There's no "conspiracy" not to deal with these issues

doesn't have to be a conspiracy as long as the moneyed and political elites can get the right people in the MSM to STHU.
with so few MAJOR news outlets it's not that hard.
That's why alternate news sources ...even though not as well funded or "respected" and biased... have to be available and HEARD.
Rather than assumed bogus, just becasue the MSM hasn't commented on the same information.

As well as consider/listen to credible whistle blower testimony which somehow doesn't land (or repeat) on the MSM.

also notice how Google/youtube wants to BAN, and blacklist and suppress views to alt news sources like project veritas and many others.
It's not a Big Media conspiracy though. -cough-

The Left is bound and determined to stifle free speech and squash anything and everything that they don't agree with.

Anyone notice the fact this is from three years ago?...

2016?...

A story about a pedophile with close ties to Bill Clinton gets squashed smack-dab in the middle of a presidential election where one of the candidates is Bill Clinton's wife?...

And just like good leftist organizations do, CBS fired the ABC whistle blower at ABC's request.

Quote:
Democrat-Media Complex in Action: CBS Fires Epstein Whistleblower Upon ABC News's Request

We knew that the collective silence from the major news networks regarding Project Veritas' bombshell video this week meant that James O'Keefe had a very eye-opening and shocking story. The video in question was leaked to Veritas by an unknown ABC News employee. It featured ABC News anchor Amy Robach venting that her network "quashed" a major news story three years ago about now-dead pervert and convicted child molester Jeffrey Epstein that would have implicated former President Bill Clinton, the British Royal family, and more. Robach seems to imply the network stopped the story to protect the rich and the power, and to preserve access to high profile figures. It was unclear who leaked the video and if the whistleblower still worked for ABC News. Well, according to Yashar Ali, the leaker had switched jobs and was working for CBS News. That is until ABC News tracked that person down, ratted the employee out, and then had CBS News subsequently fire the whistleblower.

Yashar reported via Twitter Wednesday night that "ABC News execs believe they know who the former employee is who accessed footage of @arobach expressing her frustrations about her shelved Jeffrey Epstein story That former employee is now at CBS and ABC execs have reached out to CBS News execs."

"In a statement, an ABC News spokesperson tells me: 'We take violations of company policy very seriously, and we’re pursuing all avenues to determine the source of the leak,'" he continued.

"It's important to note that ABC News does not know if this former employee leaked the footage to Project Veritas. What they do know is who accessed the footage. It's possible that person could have shared it with others who leaked it," Ali noted.

"As I noted in this thread, ABC News has confirmed they're conducting an investigation into the leak. In response to an email, CBS News says they're declining to comment for this story," he added.

Then, this morning, Ali gave an update," Two sources familiar with the matter tell me that CBS News has fired the staffer in question. This comes after ABC informed CBS that they had determined who accessed the footage of Amy Robach expressing her frustrations about the Epstein story."

As James O'Keefe said, "You have all these anon sources inside ABC News, @yashar, and your priority is not to find out who spiked the #EpsteinCoverup story but to use your anon sources to go after who brought it to light. This is why people hate the media."

Think about this -- rather than question why ABC News would refuse to air an explosive story, CBS sided with its mainstream media buddy to protect the Democrat-Media Complex. Together they protect the Democrats, like Bill Clinton who supposedly would have been exposed in this interview, and together the two groups comprise the Democrat-Media Complex.

Apparently, the only whistle blowers worthy of protection are the ones that falsely implicate Republicans.
