Fox News contributor Kat Timpf trashed ABC News’ decision to not run with a story on Jeffrey Epstein in 2015, and criticizing the network’s statement about unvetted reporting as “B.S.”
Timpf, a writer for National Review, was speaking with MediaBuzz host Howard Kurtz Sunday about a video showing ABC anchor Amy Robach venting about ABC spiking a planned 2015 story on the financier and convicted sex offender.
.@KatTimpf says ABC's explanation for not running Amy Robach's interview with the top Jeffrey Epstein accuser is "BS," and the ex-staffer fired by CBS for leaking the tape--which she denies--could bring suit #Mediabuzz https://t.co/MacfUBJiW5— HowardKurtz (@HowardKurtz) November 10, 2019
The mainstream media seems to have been quite protective of any major figure within the Clinton network in the run up to the 2016 election, even if they turned out to be a pedophile rapist like Epstein.
“Their statement that they released saying the reason they didn’t release it was because they didn’t have corroboration or it didn’t meet their editorial standards, I can’t believe that this has not been a bigger deal because that statement is B.S.” Timpf said, pointing to ABC reporting on unsupported claims made by Michael Avenatti about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The video of Robach saying her story was spiked was obtained and released by conservative activist group Project Veritas. Kurtz said he has criticized the group in the past “because it uses deception and undercover techniques, but that’s not the case here.”
