Several weeks ago, ABC News anchor Amy Robach was taped talking to her producer off air, expressing her frustration about ABC “spiking” the Jeffrey Epstein pedophilia story. Project Veritas picked up the tape and released it earlier this week. Here’s ABC’s Robach:
I’ve had the story for three years — I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts Giuffre [one of Epstein’s victims]. We would not put it on the air. First of all, I was told, ‘Who’s Jeffrey Epstein? No one knows who that is. This is a stupid story.’
The whole thing is troubling. Robach tried unconvincingly to walk her comments back. ABC claimed it didn’t run the story because it didn’t meet ABC’s standards.
Suicide or not, even bigger questions remain. As Robach said in the above tape, other people who were complicit in Epstein’s evil appear to be escaping (worldly) justice. Where is Ghislaine Maxwell? If only CNN still thought it could tie Epstein to Trump, Jeff Zucker would be personally paying for Maxwell’s security to get her to testify. If Maxwell remained missing, the search for her would be bigger than the search for that plane.
