The media has done an absolutely terrible job of covering the story of Jeffrey Epstein’s suspicious death.

The continuing developments in the story are very rarely discussed by major networks, but, until now, we didn’t know how much they’d been ignoring.

Now, thanks to a newly-discovered recording, we know that one network covered up details that would have blown the lid off the story THREE YEARS ago.

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released a video that showed an ABC News reporter venting her frustration that an earlier report she submitted—which described in detail Epstein’s involvement in pedophilia and sex trafficking—was denied airtime by the network.

ABC News anchor Amy Robach had the goods on Epstein years ago. The report was based on an interview with one of Epstein’s alleged victims and cited sexual acts performed by the underage girl on Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz, as well as Epstein himself.

The report also referenced Bill Clinton’s association with Epstein.

However, ABC refused to run the story.

Suspicious, isn’t it?

The following is a partial transcript of the “hot mic” video:

“I had this interview with Virginia Roberts. We would not put it on the air. I was told ‘Who’s Jeffrey Epstein. No one knows that is. This is a stupid story.’

The palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.

I had it all three years ago.

We were so afraid that we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate or Will, I think that also squashed the story.

And then Alan Dershowitz was also implicated because of the claims. She told me everything.

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—we had everything.

I tried for three years to get it out, to no avail.

And now it’s all coming out and it’s like these are new revelations. And I freaking had all of it.

I’m so pissed right now, like, every day I get more and more pissed. Because I’m just like oh my God, we…what we had was unreal.

Other women backing it up…Brad Edwards the Attorney, three years ago, saying like there will come a day where we will realize Jeffrey Epstein was the most prolific pedophile this country has ever known. I had it all three years ago.”

Once the video was brought to light, both ABC and Robach made public statements to address it.

Instead of defending her words, Robach made up a lame excuse as to why the story wasn’t aired.

She walked back her “hot mic” moment:

“I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts didn’t air because I could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standards about her allegations.”

ABC’s editorial standards?

What standards?

ABC had no problem reporting unverified accusations made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation circus.

ABC had no problem running an interview with actor Jussie Smollett following a hoax he orchestrated to make it look like a Trump supporter violently attacked him.

The whole organization is a joke. That is an absurd defense.

It is far more likely that the story was not aired due to political bias.

At the time when Robach submitted the report, Hillary Clinton was running for president. The story would have reflected poorly on her by association with her husband and would likely have served as a distraction for the campaign.

Also, if ABC didn’t run the story because the higher-up at the network feared retribution from the British monarchy, they are cowards.

Was an interview with Kate Middleton and Prince William more important than exposing the most prolific child molestation ring in American history?

These people can shut up about having moral standards.

Give me a break! These people don’t have one ounce of integrity.

At first, I was hesitant to concur with President Trump’s assertion that the “media are the enemy of the people.”

However, I am beginning to think he is correct. They don’t care about a free press; they are the Democratic Party press who are more concerned with advancing the narrative of the Democrat Party than are about exposing the truth.

The media have destroyed the Free Press, not President Trump.
