    Didnít meet ABCís journalistic standards...a month after they aired footage of a Kentucky range and called it a Syrian war zone.

    The issue here is that 1) The story was spiked at all, and 2) the story involving the Clintons was spiked during the 2016 election season.

    While she claims that "nobody told her to stop reporting on Jeffrey Epstein"... well, duh. Hillary lost anyway.

    Now somebody ask her what in her story did not meet ABC reporting standards... other than the obvious that it interfered with the chances of their preferred presidential candidate, that is.
    So when the story was about Clinton the story was spiked and when it came to Trump Epstein was spiked.
    Better a sister in a whore-house than a brother in the Conservative Party.

    Too much gossip and insinuation pass as "news" nowadays.

    That's why most Americans mistrust the media and prefer to stay with their "own" media.

    Conservatives believe FOX.

    Liberals believe CNN and MSNBC.

    Genuine independents believe none of them.
    Dont give us that "independent" BS. Again, when someone claims that they are "independent" that is their code sign for "hey! im really a conservative, I just dont like the stench of the label."

    Sorry, you're in the same basket with the other deplorables.

    Yes, of course it's all about Clinton, although Trump had his own links to Epstein and hired the BUSH II-appointed US Attorney, Acosta, that gave Epstein the sweet, sweet deal for a cabinet position, and that deal was approved at the top of the BUSH II DoJ. And he was allegedly murdered according to your video under the supervision of the BARR DoJ. But, sure, make it all about Bill Clinton and the evil Democrats. CLINTON!!! CLINTON!!! CLINTON!!! CLINTON!!! CLINTON!!! CLINTON!!! CLINTON!!! CLINTON!!! CLINTON!!! CLINTON!!!

    I have no confidence Bill Clinton was innocent in this sordid mess, but at the very least from what we KNOW of the scandal is it touched a lot of people at the very top of government, academia and business, and the reach was not partisan.

    Unlike you, I don't let politics influence this situation. I don't give a crap who the people involved were, they need to face justice PERIOD.

    I find it very telling that you chose to play politics with this by falsely implying that Trump was involved in that activity... I speaks volumes about you morality... or rather, lack there of.

    I don't even know what 'independent' means in the context of ideology. The Dems are largely a centrist party, the Republicans are a far-right party. What's in-between centrist and far-right? John Kasich?

    So, apparently ABC got right to the bottom of all this -- not determining why the Epstein story was quashed, but determining which of its employees leaked the footage of Robach. They determined the employee now works for CBS news:

    Scoop: ABC News/Epstein

    Then, apparently, CBS fired him/her.

    Yashar Ali �� on Twitter: "5. 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.
    https://t.co/OHEoyahppY"


    Blow a whistle against a viscerally hated President, and you're a hero who must be protected at all costs. Blow a whistle against the media quashing a story about a pedophile who runs a rape island, and you're ****ed.

    THIS will REALLY inspire journalists to speak truth to power.

    The only reason to be anti-libertarian is there are people you want to control that you wouldn't be able to.

    Come on, man .... CNN is one of the most liberal outlets on the planet. Along with MSNBC. There's nothing wrong with that. Just own it. Years ago the press was proud of it's bias, and didn't try to hide it. Papers like the Plains Democrat, the Conservative Review.... then J-schools taught students that they should all appear to be "objective". No one is ever "objective". No news outlet is ever objective. Just come out and say so. FOX news says "Fair and Balanced". Baloney. Just admit their bias and go with it. But for someone to insist that CNN is "objective" is laughable.

    Absolutely not.

    Many think (and for good reason) that Clinton's involvement with the man and his activities is precisely the reason that ABC and other mainstream LIBERAL media outlets chose to pass on reporting the story for so long. In ABC's case, the prevailing belief is that ABC spiked the story because of the negative impact it would have had on Hillary's presidential run.

    If you have another theory as to why ABC News didn't air that interview, then I'm all ears. And please, don't bother with the "It didn't meet journalistic standards" bunk the network put out, because there are dozens of examples that blow that line of bull totally out of the water.

    ABC pulling the Epstein story had nothing to do with corroboration. It was about ABC worried they'd never get an interview with Megan Markle after they accused Prince Andrew of being a child-rapist. Or maybe it was George Stephanopolis protecting his former boss Bill Clinton, whose reelection campaign he managed.
    And there are plenty of others...
