Fox executives grew nervous when the news broke.
The situation threatened to quickly spiral out of control.
A Fox News whistleblower’s undercover recording will leave you speechless.
Fox News general assignment reporter Ivory Hecker worked for Fox 26 in Houston.
Hecker became a viral sensation when she began a report by announcing she had secretly recorded her bosses as part of undercover work for Project Veritas, and would release a bombshell audio tape of her work being censored.
Stunned viewers watched as Hecker blamed Fox Corp.—the parent company that owns Fox News—for “muzzling” her.
Before continuing on with her report about the rush to fix air conditioners as a heat wave swept across Texas, Hecker promised to release her secret recordings.
The station immediately suspended Hecker, but that did not stop Hecker from making good on her word.
Hecker released the audio of conversations between Hecker and Fox26 News Director Susan Schiller, and Assistant News Director Lee Meier.
In one recording Meier tells Hecker that she should tailor her reporting to the advertisers or station executives.
Keeping sponsors happy placed higher above keeping viewers informed.
“Everything’s going to be under the microscope,” Meier told Hecker in one recording released by Project Veritas on Tuesday evening. “You’re not posting anything without Susan or I signing off on it. … Industry executives, who are the people who hire us and keep us employed — that’s the part that needs to make a difference to you. It’s not just about the viewers. It’s about what our CEO reads. It’s about what our GM reads.”
In other recordings Hecker revealed that executives censored her reporting on hydroxychloroquine and cryptocurrency.
Mediaite also reported:
Hecker said she clashed with Meier and Schiller over stories that included hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malarial drug touted by some last year — included former President Donald Trump —as an option for treating for Covid-19, as well as bitcoin
“Bitcoin poor African American audience at 5, it’s probably not going to play,” Meier told Hecker in another exchange. “That’s a choice I’m making. An editorial choice.”
Hydroxychloroquine became a flashpoint during the pandemic for the sole reason that Donald Trump floated it as a possible treatment for coronavirus.
There were experts such as Yale cancer epidemiologist Dr. Harvey Risch that supported the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19, but the vast public health establishment—led by Dr. Fauci—and the corporate media teamed up to make the drug radioactive solely out of opposition to Donald Trump.
Hecker’s undercover reporting reveals even executives at Fox-owned stations were willing to go along with Dr. Fauci and the corporate media opposing Donald Trump.
