According to reports, ABC News is making frantic efforts to find the whistleblower responsible for leaking a video about the network squelching a Jeffrey Epstein story to Project Veritas.
Sources told the New York Post that ABC executives were conducting interrogations and searching employees’ emails in an effort to find out who leaked the video. CBS News also fired then-ABC staffer Ashley Bianco, who was responsible for storing the video on an internal company server, and whom CBS had recently hired.
The ABC investigation apparently goes all the way to the top of the network, to parent company Disney, the sources said.
The whistleblower also wrote a letter through Project Veritas to ABC under the pen name Ignotus, a reference to a Harry Potter character, saying that Bianco was not the source of the leak and chastising ABC for interrogating employees.
“Instead of addressing this head-on like the company has in the past, it has spun into a mission of seek-and-destroy,” the whistleblower wrote. “Innocent people that have absolutely nothing to do with this are being hunted down as if we are all a sport. I challenge all of you to actually look inwards and remember why this company engages in journalism.”
