Former ABC Employee Behind Amy Robach Leak Reportedly Fired by CBS

Two days after a video of ABC News’ Amy Robach complaining that network executives had quashed her story on allegations against Jeffrey Epstein surfaced, the employee reportedly behind the leak has been fired.

On Tuesday, Project Veritas released the video of Robach voicing her frustration that three years earlier executives at ABC News called her story on Epstein “stupid” and killed it, as IJR has previously reported.

Journalist Yashar Ali tweeted on Wednesday that network executives had launched a leak investigation and were “pursuing all avenues to determine the source of the leak.”

Ali noted that ABC executives reportedly believed they had found the individual behind the leak. The unnamed employee had worked at ABC, but left the network sometime before the leak and began working at CBS News.

However, network executives were not sure if the employee leaked the video to Project Veritas or if they gave it to someone else who leaked it.

According to Ali, network executives at ABC had been in communication with CBS executives about the employee.

On Thursday morning, Ali tweeted that sources told him CBS News had fired the employee that ABC reportedly believed is the leaker. However, CBS did not comment on Ali’s reporting.

After the video surfaced, ABC released a statement disputing Robach’s claim saying that her reporting did not meet the network’s editorial standards.

“At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards to air, but we have never stopped investigating the story.”

Robach said in a statement she was “caught in a private moment of frustration. She added that she was upset she “could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standards about her allegations.”
