ABC's Amy Robach

Yet another female reporter from yet another network has accidently joined MSNBC's Rachel Maddow to call out her own company for years of spiking stories about Jeffery Epstein providing teenage sex partners for rich and powerful men.

ABC News Amy Robach was caught in an open mic video moment which has been published by Project Veratis' James O'Keefe, a self-proclaimed "guerrilla journalist" whose past efforts have drawn heavy criticism.

“I’ve had the story for three years… we would not put it on the air,” Robach said on the hot mic. “It was unbelievable what we had, Clinton, we had everything.”

Fox News contacted Robach, and she confirmed the video was genuine.

“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 [Epstein accuser] Virginia Roberts didn’t air because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standards about her allegations,” Robach said in a statement provided to Fox News

“We would not put it on the air. Um, first of all, I was told, who’s Jeffrey Epstein? No one knows who that is. This is a stupid story," Robach said on the video recording. "Then, the Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways. We were so afraid we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will that we, that also quashed the story.”

“I tried for three years to get it on to no avail. And now it’s all coming out and it’s like these new revelations and I freaking had all of it,” Robach said. “I’m so pissed right now.”



Since Robach chose to provide a statement to Fox News, it's a sole source, not a news provider of choice for this piece.

I don't think your title does anything positive for this topic.

What was Project Veritas' specific claim about this?

The issue seems mostly that ABC's journalistic standards are high. Isn't that good? I'm sure they get scooped often, but they dont want to break news first.

No.

I think the real issue here is that MSNBC and ABC both covered for a sicko and his rich and powerful friends, over the objections of female reporters who are now remorseful.

Quibbling over the title of the thread?

In that case, it doesn't matter what the title is, somebody is going to find fault, regardless of the title.

Seems like some folks still want this story to go away, besides Buckingham Palace, MSNBC, ABC, etc., etc, etc.

The only thing Veratis did in this segment of As The Jailed Perv Chokes was to provide a video clip of a female ABC reporter saying she had the goods on Epstine and the Clintons three years ago and her network quashed it.

She later confirmed the vid was authentic and she was PO'd the story didn't run three years ago as it should have.

But, let's quibble over the thread title instead.

The thread title is problematic though. You are undermining your own topic, to which I am asking a genuine question.

I have no ideas what project veritas suggested or scooped a while back. I'm asking.

I can check the fox news link, but will it answer my question? I am just trying to catch up on a topic you seem further along on.

Oh, I see. I tend to think of this as a catch-all thread for everything Epstein, not just one new item.
You know, this being a new forum and all, we have no background threads with the whole Epstein episodes through the years.
Hence the title. Yeah, he's still dead, but he's still making headlines.
Apologies to those too young to catch the SNL reference about General Franco. :hihi:

So, I recalled you and others had said Project Veritas was sensationalistic in nature regarding the CNN Whistleblower topic.

OK, let's clean this up.

Assuming that you knew about Epstein being found dead in his jail cell from an apparent suicide after being arrested for sex trafficking minors . . .
Assuming that you knew about his long-time relationships with the rich and powerful ranging from DJT to Bill Clinton, to Prince Andrew . . .
Assuming that you knew he hosted them on his private plane and private island, purportedly for illicit relations with underage girls . . .
Assuming that you knew last week Rachel Maddow of MSNBC called out her own network for suppressing the story for years . . .
Assuming that you know the long-standing joke for the past three decades about what happens to Clinton's enemies . . .

New - Project Veritas (the website) is now saying Amy Robach of ABC has been quoted on an open mic saying she had the dirt on Epstein and the Clintons three years ago, but ABC suppressed the story .


New - Fox News contacted Amy Robach and she confirmed the story and offered further insight in an exclusive response to Fox.

Summation - A second female reporter for a different work has now come forward to add impetus to Rachel Maddow's claim that suppression of the Epstein story had gone on for years at the network level.

Going forward, I won't always have the time or inclination to lay things out like this every time, but I'm taking the time now in the spirit of launching the new site and forum.

You're welcome.

If she was so confident in her reporting, why didn't she go somewhere else with the story? I seem to remember that Ronan Farrow did just that with his Weinstein reporting. He had that story at NBC and they killed it, he then penned it for the New Yorker and got a Pulitzer.

So, does she have anything to add to the Epstein story? Did she at least have what was already reported or was it lacking corroborating evidence? All I see thus far is sour grapes from her and no value added to the Epstein story.

Epstein’s dead.

I don’t believe he killed himself.

I hope everyone who participated in his activities go to prison, and even those who were just aware of it and did nothing are named and shamed.

This isn’t really a partisan issue, it just happens to involve politicians. It is about wealth and the power it wields.

Other than her openly mentioning ". . . we had Clinton, we had everything . . ." I believe the real story here is going to be the network response.

And that, my friends, in my humble opinion, is a CUYA of monumental proportions!

It's also a backhanded slap at Robach " . . . not all of our reporting met our standards to air . . . "

Horse hockey. They were covering.

OK, if she had everything, (whatever that means) then why not publish it elsewhere? Something tells me that her story was the same story that's been out there for years without any proof, just insinuations. Ronan Farrow did the work for his story and published without NBC, she should have done the same.

Didn't Farrow leave NBC before he published?

In any event, I feel confident that these network employees have agreements that they will not do freelance work.

IIRC. Farrow brought story to NBC brass and they said no. SO he left NBC and took story to the New Yorker and they published it around a month later.

From Oct 2017


When Ronan Farrow made a guest appearance on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” on Tuesday night, he tried to make it clear that he was the reporter, not the story.

“We are there in service of women doing something really tough,” Mr. Farrow told the host, “and I hope people hear their voices and focus on that.”

The next day, however, the media and entertainment industries were still discussing how and why Mr. Farrow’s story on allegations of sexual abuse levied against the film mogul Harvey Weinstein by numerous women had ended up being published by The New Yorker — after it began as an investigative report for NBC News.

Mr. Farrow, formerly a contributing correspondent for NBC News, told Ms. Maddow he had taken his investigation to The New Yorker only after the network dragged its feet. But Noah Oppenheim, the president of NBC News, disputed the suggestion that the network’s news division had lacked the courage to air Mr. Farrow’s exposé.

“We supported him and gave him resources to report that story over many, many months,” Mr. Oppenheim said during an annual meeting with NBC News staff members on Wednesday at Studio 8H, the home of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” “The notion that we would try to cover for a powerful person is deeply offensive to all of us.”

Mr. Farrow’s 8,000-word article concerned 13 women, several of whom went on the record to accuse Mr. Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault and rape. The story, published on Tuesday, went online days after the publication of the first of two investigative articles by The New York Times on Mr. Weinstein, who was fired from the Weinstein Company on Sunday.

...
So, why did Mr. Farrow, who had worked for NBC News since 2013, take it to a rival organization?

“I walked into the door at The New Yorker with an explosively reportable piece that should have been public earlier,” Mr. Farrow told Ms. Maddow on Tuesday. “And immediately, obviously, The New Yorker recognized that, and it’s not accurate to say that it was not reportable. In fact, there were multiple determinations that it was reportable at NBC.”
