"ABC News anchor Amy Robach was caught on camera slamming her own network for allegedly sitting on the Jeffrey Epstein story three years ago...."

"Robach says she’d spoken to Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who alleges Epstein used her as a sex slave and trafficked her to his powerful friends, including Britain’s Prince Andrew. 'I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts .. we would not put it on the air,' Robach says on camera. 'First of all, I was told "Who’s Jeffrey Epstein?"... Then the palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.' She went on to say the network was afraid that running the story would prevent interviews with Kate Middleton and and Prince William. 'It was unbelievable what we had. [Bill] Clinton—we had everything. I tried for three years to get it on to no avail and now it’s all coming out and it’s like these new revelations.'"

The Daily Beast reports on the newly released video you can watch below. Amy Robach is the journalist who got Hunter Biden to cry (in that long interview last month).

THIS is why nobody trusts the Main Stream Media. They are beholden to elites who they want their powder puff stories from. Too bad about kids and women who were trafficked through Jeffrey and his good buddies that like little girls. Too bad. They wanted Kate and Will!!! This is why we know they will never tell us the truth about anything. Good for James O'Keefe, who once again shows us what REAL JOURNALISM looks like.

Sebastian said...

"[Bill] Clinton—we had everything"

That was their problem right there.

Fake News includes spiking stories.

Weinstein and Epstein were made men in the Progressive Utopia.

Bob Boyd said...



Who's Prince Andrew?

Bay Area Guy said...

NBC tried to squelch Ronan Farrow's story on Harvey Weinstein.

ABC tried to and did squelch Jeffrey Epstein story

CBS and Dan Rather tried to squelch the Bush campaign of 2004, with a bogus anonymous memo about his National Guard service.

Anyone beginning to see a patten here? Anyone?....Bueller? .....

Temujin said...

If I'm reading her correctly, she's pissed that she didn't get credit for the scoop, not that Epstein was allowed to go on freely. Or Clinton. Or Prince. Or Dersh(??). Or any number of other slugs. She's pissed that this career-making scoop got held off.

I suspect someone who thought this was important would have told her bosses to take a flying leap and taken the story elsewhere.

Who killed Seth Rich?

rcocean said...

Too bad, but I don't think Prince Andrew was the show-stopper. Anyway, lets hear all about this. Lets NAME NAMES. *Who* exactly at ABC News was stopping her from going on air?

Bob Boyd said...

Ronan Farrow is talking about revisiting Juanita Broaddrick's accusations against Bill Clinton... which, of course, puts him at much higher risk for suicide.

Wince said...

I'm sure ABC is moving quickly to protect that whistleblower.

Lucid-Ideas said...

A message to the MSM,

If you're reading this - and I hope so because Ann Althouse's blog is frickin' awesome - you would do well to realize that Americans, and the whole world, only want the truth. Ugly. Up. Down. Left. Right. In circles. The information is for us to decide. But it must be the truth, backed up with evidence, not hearsay and not opinion. No one is above the law, and no one below it.

The people that are making executive decisions 'to sit' on something are not doing you, their company's, or their audience any favors by 'sitting' on this information, especially not when the information is damaging to people doing something vile that has been vile since...oh...forever.

HAVE SOME MOTHERFUCKING JOURNALISTIC INTEGRITY FOR ONCE AND STOP ACTING LIKE THE INTELLIGENCE ASSETS YOU'VE BECOME.

And maybe, just maybe, people will actually start to trust you again. Nobody ever said this shit was going to be easy or safe. But it is noble work if you actually do the work and you do it nobly.

Lucid-Ideas.

iowan2 said...

Insanity is defined as repeating the same actions, and expecting different results.

The Media learn anything?

Obama's administration spied on political rivals. Used the CIA, The FBI, State Dept, and DoJ.

This is all documented in the NYT, CNN, NBC, ABC, Washington Post. All the evidence has been reported on. The media is refusing to tie it all together. There are at least three books in print, that do tie it all together. The books are quarentined in a media blackout. Can't have the 80% of the voters that get there news from facebook, and 20 minutes of local news they have on to get a weather forecast.

This info is a lock for the much sought after Pulitzer Prize. But not a soul in the media wants it enough to tell the truth.

Gusty Winds said...

Pizzagate and all that sick Spirit Cooking stuff that came out in the Wikileaked Podesta emails in 2016 was all real....

running the story would prevent interviews with Kate Middleton and and Prince William.
Well, i think we can ALL AGREE, that NOTHING must get in the way of our selling soap chips to women... women that Want/NEED! to hear about Princess Katie!

rhhardin said...

They put on what gets ratings, including this story. Given that motivation, who cares.

Well, women.

What can we manipulate them into watching today. Today's costs don't pay themselves.

Bob Boyd said, apparently truthfully...
Who's Prince Andrew?


Randy Prince Andy? The known Sex Addict, and abuser of teenie boppers?
He's from a German Family of Usurpers;
that STOLE the British Crown from it's Rightful (and Scottish) owners
NONE of this would be happening if The Stuarts were running things; let me Tell YOU!

rhhardin said...

Politics isn't their motivation. Audience is.

The biggest most reliable audience is soap opera women.

Today it's tapping into child sexual abuse hysteria. Why would ABC not let us have child sexual abuse hysteria three years ago. They had better stories, is why.

It runs is a circle, same stories recycled; but you can't do them all at once. No car chases in plane crash stories, for the guy version.

I favor Scott Adams's idea of the media killing celebrities just to report on their deaths, for variety.

I'm Full of Soup said...

She's the one who just did the softball interview of Hunter Biden.

tim in vermont said...

Remember, the guy who reviewed every prison death in NY State for decades, after Attica, when the prisoners claimed that guards were calling deaths “heart attacks” they introduced a review board for all prison deaths, and this guy was on the board, says it was clearly a strangulation death, and the evidence at the scene just had a way of getting destroyed.

This is the prison that held El Chapo, who wasn’t as well connected as the people who wanted Epstein dead, apparently. What has happened to the two guards who “went to sleep”? Are they fired? Did they lose their pensions?

Qwinn said...

I thought we'd long established that even direct admissions of guilt are inadmissible, if the guilt would attach to a Democrat.

Lance said...

She sounds rehearsed. Like she's repeated her comments many times, or it wasn't really a "private moment".

Beasts of England said...

This attack on our fair and benevolent media is very concerning...

tim in vermont said...

I hope that young lady who had all of this evidence isn’t “suicidal."

Unknown said...

And not a single "big time" media is reporting this, or the payments for Hunter Biden.

Any semblance that the democrat propaganda networks are not in the bad for the democrats is ludicrous, just ludicrous.

traditionalguy said...

Wow. That story line has been the biggest and best hidden secret on the earth. If it's coming out now, then the storm is upon us. At the least, it's a big test of Media's Narrative Controllers to kill it. It leads to the depths of the CIA/FBI/EU cabal's deep power methods. Trump had better double the guards that surround him.

Kevin said...

The media tells you what they're allowed to tell you.

Half of the country has figured this out.

The other half still reads the NYT.

Roost on the Moon said...

It's been obvious for a long time that James OKeefe is an amoral scumbag, but credit where due: this is a legitimately huge story. Also worth noting that it accords fully with similar accusations Ronan Farrow made in his recent book on the topic.

Many people have known about Epstein for years, and his power and wealth protected him. And probably some blackmail as well. I hope it all comes out.

__

“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” Trump told New York Magazine that year for a story headlined “Jeffrey Epstein: International Moneyman of Mystery.” “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

narciso said...

Interesting the others mentioned by guiffre, mitchell and richardson arent spoken of

Left Bank of the Charles said...

Boris Johnson should impeach Prince Andrew and take his Dukedom away. Andrew did lose his Trade Envoyship back in 2011 due to his ties to Epstein. Not enough.

robother said...

Amy sounds rather depressed. I hope she seeks professional help for that, lest she do something rash.

Achilles said...

rhhardin said...

This is obviously not true.

Why do you keep posting this stupidity?

Achilles said...

The people that own the media use it as a tool.

ABC is owned by Disney. Disney makes more in one day selling Minney Mouse dolls than ABC is worth. Disney doesn't mind losing money if they can get something in return.

They get to shape the window in which politics is discussed in our country.

It is odd watching democrat voters pretend to be angry about rich people when they are so obviously their tools.

Amy Robach survived her close brush with suicide.

Charlie said...

"Insanity is defined as repeating the same actions, and expecting different results. "

Why does everyone keep repeating this? That is not the definition of insanity.

William said...

Yeah, but she did nothing with all of the information she had. Now who's fault is that?

Mike Sylwester said...

Three years ago was the late summer or early autumn of 2016 -- the weeks before November 8.

During that time, revealing Epstein's activities and a famous guest at Lolita Island might interfere with other "journalistic" goals that ABC prioritized.

Infinite Monkeys said...

There's a difference between not reporting on Randy Andy in order to stay on the good side of the Royals and not reporting a story that they know you have. Once they know, it seems like any request for an interview would have an implied hint of extortion.

Yancey Ward said...

Yes, of course, axing the story had everything to do with Prince Andrew and nothing at all to do with the Clintons- nothing at all.

Quayle said...

There are no independent news agencies anymore that are housed within a publicly traded company. They don’t exist; they can’t exist. Every decision as to what to run and what to show today will be made in regard to how it would impact future profits. If you upset a content provider (and the royal family is a large content provider) - if you get on the wrong side of the content providers you’ll get frozen out. They won’t provide content or give you access to content anymore. Therefore it’s impossible for news agencies to be independent housed inside a for-profit corporation.

Mike Sylwester said...

It's not too late for May Robach to broadcast an informative report about the murder of Seth Rich.

Yancey Ward said...

Oh, and by the way media-elite- the defense of Joe Biden, about how there was no corruption investigation of Burisma when Biden got Shokin fired, was proven false yesterday when a FOIA suit revealed Burisma e-mails to the State Department asking for a sit down to discuss why Burisma was being investigated by the Ukrainian government. The Burisma e-mails even made a point to tell the State Department that Hunter Biden was a board member. So, that defense is done. What else do you have?

Lance said...

If she was so unhappy with ABC, why didn't she quit and take the story elsewhere, à la Ronan Farrow or Sharyl Attkisson? And she obviously wasn't the only one at ABC who knew about this, why didn't anyone else take it to the web or even just leak it?

gspencer said...

"That is not the definition of insanity."

That's true. Insanity is voting for any Democrat.

Drago said...

Left Bank of the Charles: "Boris Johnson should impeach Prince Andrew and take his Dukedom away. Andrew did lose his Trade Envoyship back in 2011 due to his ties to Epstein. Not enough."

Can't go after Prince Andrew without going after Bill Clinton, and you lefties will never, ever, allow that.

Howard said...

Achillies is right. ABC/Disney can't afford to dish on their princess franchises by going after the bucked-toof inbred house of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg.

gilbar said...

From our Beloved Professor Althouse's favorite Newssite :
Bible Scholars Now Believe Writing On The Wall Actually Said 'Epstein Didn't Kill Himself'

"It seems the hand writing on the wall actually spelled out very clearly for King Belshazzar that Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself but was murdered to protect the political elites," said Dr. Fred Poe of Dallas Theological Seminary. "This is the interpretation better supported by the text of the transcription 'mene, mene, tekel, parsin."

Big Mike said...

The Clintons are sending Amy’s husband and kids a sympathy card because of her suicide this Friday. Strangled herself to death.

They are back trying to pin the guy who hosted Clinton on his Lolita Express dozens of times on Trump who kicked him out of Mar a Lago.

Qwinn said...

Am I mistaken, or were people mocking Bill Clinton's visits to Lolita Island long before 2016? Is this woman just attempting to fudge the date of when Epstein's crimes became public knowledge? Cause everyone in the Right blogosphere was talking about it for years while the left media and blogs studiously ignored it throughout.

Rabel said...

In this longer version of the video she gives her opinion on the Epstein "suicide."

rehajm said...

I'm always skeptical of 'hot mic' stories now too, ever since President Bartlet let the secret spill. Of course nobody paying attention should be surprised ABC killed the story.

It was a mistake for Amy to mention (Bill) Clinton, though. Nobody should be surprised when Robach has a hiking accident now, either.

Skylark said...Next the crazy bitch is going to say Epstein didn’t kill himself.
--
“So do I think he was killed? 100% Yes, I do…He made his whole living blackmailing people… Yup, there were a lot of men in those planes. A lot of men who visited that Island, a lot of powerful men who came into that apartment.”

Leland said...

So a guy traffics a sex slave to a member of the British royal family and instead of investigating who that guy is; the story is canned because a "news" organization doesn't have the interest in finding out who the guy is. I believe it except that part that they don't know who Epstein is. After all, a guy holds up a sign at a college football game and suddenly we know about his tweets as a teenager.

Bay Area Guy said...

I am reminded of the wise words of Don Vito Corleone to his fellow Mobsters in The Godfather:

But let me say this. I am a superstitious man, a ridiculous failing but I must confess it here. And so if some unlucky accident should befall my youngest son, if some police officer should accidentally shoot him, if he should hang himself while in his jail cell, if new witnesses appear to testify to his guilt, my superstition will make me feel that it was the result of the ill will still borne me by some people here. Let me go further. If my son is struck by a bolt of lightning I will blame some of the people here. If his plane show fall into the sea or his ship sink beneath the waves of the ocean, if he should catch a mortal fever, if his automobile should be struck by a train, such is my superstition that I would blame the ill will felt by people here. Gentlemen, that ill will, that bad luck, I could never forgive. But aside from that let me swear by the souls of my grandchildren that I will never break the peace we have made. After all, are we or are we not better men than those pezzonovanti who have killed countless millions of men in our lifetimes?”

jimbino said...

Amy, like many others, needs to stop saying, "I am so pissed." "Pissed" doesn't mean what she thinks it does. She means to say, "...pissed off." By the way, you don't "cave to pressure" but "cave in." "Cave" means something like "spelunk."

Somehow, the reasons she list don't quite add up. Three years ago, she had this story, with a victim naming all these powerful men, including Bill Clinton....

It's healthier in a way to begin to see things for what they are. Like the deep state conducting a coup in broad day light or the media being shown as pawns for the powerful.

NBC killed Ronan Farrow's Weinstein story and let Matt Lauer have a rape button.

CBS employed creeps Les Moonves and Charlie Rose.

ABC "quashed" the Epstein story three years ago.

What is keeping our somnolent Trump DOJ dept. from investigating this? I'm tired of playing defense. You'ed think Sleepy Jeff Sessions was still in charge. How and why did Jeff Epstein get media protection? Where are we in finding out how Epstein died after a forensic pathologist stated his injuries were consistent with strangulation and murder and not suicide?

Francisco D said...

Wow. This is what passes for an attempt at logic and evidence in support of an argument.

Are people in California that stupid?

Gk1 said...

Francisco D, yes I can attest they really are this stupid. When you surround yourself with people with only one world view it makes for sloppy, lazy thinking. Vis the majority of Californians wanting to take over the states electrical grid from PG&E when they can't even run a lemonade stand or keep homeless drug users from taking over the streets.

MD Greene said...

In the Epstein death, the official coroner's assurance that a careful autopsy came to the only possible conclusion of suicide -- even with bone injuries more commonly associated with murder -- isn't good enough.

A serious press corps would be competing like mad to get details on this:

-- Scrambling for copies (leaked, if necessary) of NYPD detective reports,

-- Getting the names of the two guards assigned to Epstein who "just happened" to be asleep at the relevant moment and then interviewing them, in on-camera ambushes if necessary,

-- Establishing with corrections and tech security experts just how unusual it was that the two relevant internal cameras happened to be inoperative at the exact same moment,

-- Swarming the Medical Examiner's office and relevant labs to find what DNA was found in examinations (if, indeed, there were any) of Epstein's fingernail scrapings and the sheet with which he "hung himself." Plus his cell door.

That's for starters. Epstein's girlfriend/accomplice/whatever went underground immediately after his death, apparently in fear for her life. His brother, similarly concerned, paid for an experienced NYC coroner's examination that raised serious questions about medical evidence not cited in the official examination report; it was reported one day last week and then dropped from view.

Said shorter, there's plenty of grist for muckrakers there and plenty of public interest to keep the story alive.

(Meanwhile Ronan Farrow saying Juanita Broaddrick had "credibly accused" Bill Clinton of rape (well, duh) is treated as news 40 years after the fact.)

Another point: Whitey Bulger was killed (beaten with locks in socks, apparently) very shortly after his unannounced transfer from one federal pen to another "high-security" facility last year, also conveniently out of camera range. It appears investigators plan soon to name his killer(s). Presumably this is because the Bulger killing made the Justice Department look bad, and Justice officials want the matter resolved.

So why isn't the same thing happening when the relevant New York justice officials can't seem to keep a notorious pederast alive for his day in court? Whose interests are being served here?

None of this adds up unless there are more important people than those of us in the general public or New York justice agencies who want to suppress the truth about what Jeffrey Epstein did, how he made his money, who his prominent friends were and how he died.

In this case, James O'Keefe, whose sole offense, to Roost on the Moon, is aiming hia media weapon at Rooster's side. If O'Keefe were targeting right wing figures and institutions, RotM woukd regard him as a parfit gentil knight.

He's from a German Family of Usurpers;

NONE of this would be happening if The Stuarts were running things; let me Tell YOU!


Under pure line-of-succession, the current heir of the Stuarts is Franz, Duke of Bavaria.

Under line-of-succession modified by the historical requirement that a successor to the English crown be born subject to the English crown (which requirement was invoked in giving the succession to the Stuarts in the first place), the current heir of the Stuarts is . . . Elizabeth II.

And, well, everybody's royal family is German. In order for the child of a ruling house to have an "equal marriage" by the rules that were applied for several centuries, they needed to marry a child of a ruling house. And the disunited Germans had a bunch of independent principalities while England, France, Poland, and Spain were united. So the majority of eligible spouses in each generation were German, which meant that after a few generations, everybody in a royal family in Europe had a majority of German ancestors.

vicktoria from Pasadena not hardest hit. Hardest hit are all the women who went to work for those lefty organizations that openly preyed on women in the most astonishing ways (Matt Lauer literally had a rape room installed at NBC at 30 Rock) because these lefties always knew that their lefty media pals would cover for them and the victorias of the world would never hold them to account.

Even now, victoria refuses to criticize Weinstein and lefty beloved Matt Lauer, Rape Room connoisseur. Nope. Its right to the old democrat/lefty switcheroo!!!

Nicely done victoria. I can see you really intend to hold those men accountable.......NOT!

LOL

The absolute best part of all this? There is no more denying the patently obvious. None. Which is why so many dems and independents are going to Trump rallies to see this herculean figure who has taken on the entire western world set of "elites" and corrupt institutions (literally, all allied intelligence agencies too) who brought all their power to bear in their "insurance policy" to rid themselves of this interloper......and are losing to him again.

People that vote for democrats just do not care about women getting raped.

They care about power over other people.

If a few women have to take one for the team so their powerful male role models can meet their needs that is fine with them.

They voted for Bill Clinton.

A known rapist.

They are terrible people.

Funny how Donald Trump’s name didn’t come up in all of the dirt she says she had.

If she had dirt on Trump, it would have come out by now. The media TDS is so severe that I think the prospect of destroying him would outweigh even their obvious reluctance to implicate the Clintons and the Royals. They'd toss Hill and bonny prince andy into the fire if they could get Trump. Clearly, they can't so they're protecting their favorite pedophiles.

Vicki demonstrates how little she gives a shit about women as long as Dems are doing the raping. Remember that the next time the malignant bitch turns up here to wail about women's rights.

@Twitter has completely removed #EpsteinCoverup from the USA trending list. Over 100,000 tweets in 9 hours and it has now vanished.

Not to pick on Vicki but can you shed some light on this horrible travesty other than to criticize the reporter?

Tina Trent said...

She makes enough money and would still do so elsewhere if she showed an iota of integrity and broke the story anyway. As it is, she's whored herself out for a job she wants.

There is no excuse for sheltering sex offenders of children. None.

Roman Farrow took his story elsewhere. I guess she prefers her cushy gig. Can’t say I blame her, it’s a nice job, but I can say I don’t respect her.

victoria thinks those hundreds upon hundreds of victims of democrat stalwarts in the media and political world had it coming so there is no reason to address it all.

Meanwhile, its perfectly cool to slander Kavanaugh as a gang rapist with lie upon lie and to call innocent high schoolers racist just for fun.

I think the more fundamental question is, who was responsible for giving Epstein his plea deal? Was that same person(s) responsible for not informing the victims of the plea deal, in contravention of federal law?

We know that Trump's Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta, negotiated and signed the sweetheart deal. We know that after reporter Julie K. Brown and the Miami Herald published the story blowing the lid off the scandal, Acosta made very misleading statements about the deal that were shot down by Brown, and the Palm Beach County state's attorney.

We know that when Brown's story broke, Trump called Acosta "a very fine man," and that Trump allowed him to continue to serve until he stepped down in July, nine months after the news broke of his plea deal which was extremely favorable to Epstein.

We also know that Alan Dershowitz, one of Epstein's attorneys in the case and a frequent Trump apologist, wrote an open letter to the Pulitzer Prize Committee pressuring them not to award the prize for investigative reporting to Ms. Brown, calling it "fake news."

We know that, once The Herald broke Brown's story, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, NYT, WaPo, and WSJ, all covered the story prominently. We also know that Fox, Brietbart, and other right-wing rags covered the story hardly at all, and minimized the involvement of Acosta and Dershowitz when they did. How could they ignore that Acosta had prepared a 53-page indictment on Epstein's crimes, but had never filed it, and never told the 36 victims whose testimony was cited therein about the plea deal.
