Project Veritas just dropped its big story from Fox 26 reporter Ivory Hecker and there is some big stuff in the reveal.
Hecker reports for their five and six o’clock news programs. What she said was there was a pattern of censorship including in regard to the Wuhan coronavirus and Bitcoin-related stories, that “Viewers are being deceived about some of the things that are going on.”
BREAKING: Fox 26 Reporter Releases tape of ‘Corruption,’ ‘Censorship.’ Fox Corp Boss told Hecker “cease & desist” posting on Hydroxychloroquine & ‘Poor African-Americans’ don’t care about Bitcoin. “Viewers being Deceived”#Fox26Whistleblower pic.twitter.com/vwVcy3MBvS
“The viewers are being deceived,” Hecker said. “By a carefully crafted narrative, in some stories.”
Hecker explained that Assistant News Director Lee Meier didn’t want to run Bitcoin stories on the five o’clock program because she said studies had shown the audience at the time to be primarily “poor African Americans” and she decided they weren’t interested in Bitcoin.
Hecker then detailed what she said was censorship about reporting on the benefit of Hydroxychloroquine. “Fox came at my throat for standing up against censorship,” she exclaimed. She interviewed Dr. Joseph Varon, the Chief of Critical Care and the COVID-19 Unit at United Memorial Hospital in Houston who told her about the success they had had with using hydroxychloroquine in helping certain virus patients. But she said she was then told by her network to “ceases and desist” posting about the drug on social media although she said that she had not been advocating for the drug.
“There’s a narrative. Yes, it is unspoken,” Hecker declared. “But if you accidentally step outside the narrative, if you don’t sense what that narrative is and go with it, there will be grave consequences for you.”
The report then discussed how ad dollars influenced the stories being run, that the network was running a lot of vaccine stories because the CDC was spending a lot of money, according to Sales Coordinator Jennifer Bourgeois. “Yeah, they [CDC] are spending money. They are spending money because they can,” she told an undercover Project Veritas reporter. “Yeah, they can. They [CDC] are in the pocket. You know? They’re there.”
“Vaccines are a potential moneymaker for Fox,” Hecker explained. “Fox gets paid for that. As a viewer, you need to look at who is advertising on this TV station, and you’ve got to realize — surely that the TV station doesn’t want to hurt its advertisers.”
Hecker said she came forward because this “affects the viewers” and she didn’t want to be a part of it, that she wanted to report whether or not it “fits the corporate narrative.”
Fox 26 has issued a statement on this story. They confirmed that she had in fact been fired as she thought earlier today.
A Fox 26 spokesperson confirmed to the Daily Beast that Ivory Hecker is no longer with the station:
“This incident involves nothing more than a disgruntled former employee seeking publicity by promoting a false narrative produced through selective editing and misrepresentation.”
