About that ABC story

By Mike Huckabee

Friday, I told you about the Olympic-level hypocrites at ABC and CBS who took time out from lecturing the rest of us against identifying or punishing whistleblowers so that ABC could snitch to CBS that one of their current employees was suspected of being the whistleblower who exposed ABC’s spiking of the Jeffrey Epstein sexual predator story, and CBS fired her. You’d think the story couldn’t get any worse.

Well, it did.

It now appears that the young woman ABC accused of leaking their reprehensible cover-up of the smart set’s favorite serial pedophile and whom CBS fired was completely innocent. Her name is Ashley Bianco, and in an interview with NBC’s Megyn Kelly, she claimed that she is not the whistleblower, and the first time she’d heard of this was when Project Veritas released the video of ABC anchor Amy Robach privately complaining about ABC higher-ups killing her expose on Epstein and his powerful pals, including Bill Clinton. In a way, we could add Ms Bianco’s name to the list of females victimized by Epstein even posthumously, thanks to the complicity of his media enablers.

Ms Bianco tearfully said she just wants her career back and for people to know she didn’t do it. Personally, I think she should hire a really tough lawyer. I hope she ends up with a new career as the owner of ABC and/or CBS.

ABC apparently fingered her as having accessed the tape and leaped to the conclusion that she was the whistleblower (so of course, she had to be immediately identified and punished, because whistleblower protections are just for people who blow the whistle on people you don’t like.)

Meanwhile, the ABC insider who claims to be the real whistleblower released an anonymous letter through Project Veritas, expressing sympathy for Ms Bianco, apologies to Ms Robach and “complete shock” at how ABC has handled, or mishandled, this entire episode, from covering for the guilty to lashing out at the innocent.

Key excerpt:

“I, like many, are at a loss for words on how this has been handled. Instead of addressing this head-on like the company has in the past, it has spun into a mission of seek-and-destroy. 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. We all hold the First Amendment at the foundation of this company, yet forget its history, its purpose, and its reasoning for even coming into existence to begin with. How lost we are…yearning to be found. I went to Project Veritas for the sole reason that any other media outlet would have probably shelved this as well. I thank all of them, and James, for seeking truth.”

Those last two sentences are the most damning of the lot. An insider at ABC, one of our largest and most powerful “news” outlets, realized that of all the places he or she could have taken this explosive story, the only one that wouldn’t have buried it is the scrappy little underdog outfit the mainsteam media routinely vilify. They’re the only one that puts seeking truth above the self-serving interests of powerful and well-connected elites. (Although let me put in a word for Fox News, the only 24-hour news channel that actually covered this story from the get-go.)

Finally, at this link, Charles Glaser of Instapundit ponders a few possible legal options Ms Bianco might consider and their relative chances of success.

He thinks odds are that CBS will end up writing a very big check to make this go away. Well, to make HER go away. But the rest of us are not going to let this go away for a long, looooooong time. Expect to hear it brought up every time the mainstream media go off on a self-righteous lecture about protecting whistleblowers.

I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:

Here’s your weekend project: Make a #MAGACHALLENGE rap video and win a trip to the White House.

Notice that the pro-Trump videos are all fun, positive and upbeat, and the anti-Trump tweets reproduced there are filled with anger and bile. This is yet another reason why the Democrats hate Trump: they could never come up with something fun like this. They've become the Anti-Fun Party. And even if they tried to copy it, what would be the prize? Dinner with Greta Thunberg, with her glaring at you the whole time for using a plastic straw? Hard pass.


Weekend update on the Democratic Presidential rodeo: If you wonder why Michael Bloomberg and Hillary Clinton might be thinking it’s not too late to dive in and nab the nomination, note that Elizabeth Warren…

...and Bernie Sanders…

...are both currently engaged in a battle to see who can most effectively end immigration enforcement, tear down our borders, wave in the most illegal immigrants and do away with the whole concept of the United States of America as a sovereign nation.

It’s hard to pick who gets the win here. Both of their plans are easily crazy enough to impress the Dems’ wacko far-left primary voters. And you have to give points to Bernie for creativity for letting in 50,000 “climate migrants” (does anyone else hear that and think of New Yorkers fleeing to Florida for the winter?) But I think I have to give the edge to Warren, for not only admitting she’d stop deporting criminal illegal immigrants (because after all, why should people be deported simply because they’re in the country illegally and breaking our laws?), but also for claiming that somehow, lowering the borders and legalizing millions of illegal immigrants would help pay for her $52 trillion “Medicare For All” scheme (which would, of course, provide “free” health care for all those immigrants.)

On the other hand, I have to dock Warren a couple of points for trying to play both sides of the fence. How can she hail illegal immigrants with criminal records as our most solid citizens while at the same time tweeting that "Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy"? Seriously, pander shamelessly to one identity group at a time.

    God bless your common sense, you read my soul. And,you give me hope. But I am not convinced we can right this ship if only those in the pew are listening.

    I would like a copy of your opening statement on your TV show about the "Deep State" on 11/9/19. Hope this is possible.

    I believe that the "Deep State" is a serious problem for this country and your opening statement was spot on.

    Thank you

    on warren-this person is probably insane-based on her actions.
    Watch her flapping hands, her crazy smiling at stuff that is dead serious--all her body language---reminds me of June Cleaver on steroids--not a clue.
    As a matter of fact, watch all the myriad dem candidates--they all have the indications of the above--biden has a closed mouth(he knows what's coming). booker is simply a gang member somewhere with a flare for rhetoric. sanders is of course, off course. most of the rest have varying degrees of "off courseness" to coin a phrase.
    Trump pledged to Drain the Swamp" --he hasn't openly attacked here, but the thrust is evident---why do you think the rest is giving him every grief they can to remove?
    Their trough is drying up--slowly but surely--

    Thank you Gov Huckabee for your insight, humor & determination to get the truth out here. You are much appreciated.
    I read your story about the news reporter that was fired & her description of what is was like working there. All I could think of was Hunger Games. When your number is called you fight for your life!!
    Have a wonderfully Thanksgiving with your family, & keep fighting the good fight!??????????????

    So 0.04% of our citizens are the "backbone of our democracy"? I hold a license in psychology and for generations, they were classified as mentally ill. I guess they want to be in control of the asylum! And destroy our values and government as they go.
    I am more and more concerned as I read scripture daily that judgement for our nation has been earned but is being held back, by God's mercy.
    There's also no doubt that President Trump is God's choice-Romans 13. What comes after him is a scary thought.

    I have not watched the main media outlets in a couple of years I found those outlets are an insult to Americans I find Fox News Will boar me with a few seconds of their opinions. It’s bad enough fox showed the old windbags from the view or Brazil comes on with her two cents old and redundant opinions or juan Williams that is bizzare he comes on to counter every remark with Moronic rebutted statements these people have not been on the correct side of most issues when they come on the channel changes the media are pathetic anti Americans

    Do you think the "smart set" at ABC and CBS might have killed the Epstein story because he was one of "their" running buddies? And, running the story might have implicated themselves?

    Great newsletter as usual. I watched the video too. Not to go off script, but I saw the President at the game today & it made me feel so good to hear all the "CHEERS" instead of BOOS & LOCK HIM UP! I'm very concerned for his safety in NY for the Veteran's Day Parade. I hope he gets some cheers, but I doubt it. I think he would be the first president to do this.

    They just get weirder and weirder by the minute. I only hope and pray that there are millions of democrats who are smart enough to vote for (sane) legislation for our country, for someone who is looking out for America and American citizens, and don't cast a vote just to cast it against someone they have been brainwashed to hate. I would hope that people would have more sense than to vote for hil if they put her up there because I can't see that she recognizes she needs an AGENDA--and not that she has worked 30+ years for this, that women HAVE to vote for her, and, of course, she would include her hatred and disdain for President Trump, and remind people 2016 was stolen from her. Don't know about bloomberg except for sure we'd have to give up plastic straws across the country. Don't know if the size of soda thing passed, but he'd probably go after that again.

    ABC just really needs to step back and look at their "rigorous" vetting of stories and sources.....maybe go back over the last 10 years or so to see what low standards they have had until this story came. Hope Ms Bianco can get the services of Sydney Powell, maybe Trey Gowdy or someone they would recommend and take ABC and CBS to the cleaners. And, their actions show that no one, whomever would have been in charge of investigating the incident, had any rigorous standards of getting to the bottom of who blew the whistle.

    What I like most about your columns is that I NEVER wonder how much is true!!! Thank you for giving us factual information about the mess the Democrats have made.
