The Media’s Silence on CBS Firing Ashley Bianco Proves #MeToo Is a Sham

For the last few years, we’ve heard a lot about #MeToo and #TimesUp. A bold new era has dawned, and men can no longer get away with exploiting women in the workplace. That’s what they tell us, anyway. But what good does has that done for Ashley Bianco?

What’s that? You don’t know who Ashley Bianco is? That’s how the media gatekeepers want it. Read on…

Last week, James O’Keefe and Project Veritas published this video of ABC News anchor Amy Robach complaining that she had the goods against Jeffrey Epstein three years ago, but the network killed the story:

A network television journalist was on tape, recorded on the set of Good Morning America, claiming she had evidence against a wealthy, politically connected pedophile but was stopped from reporting it by the network. So what did the network do when that tape went public? You guessed it: They tried to destroy the leaker.

There was just one problem: The alleged whistleblower, Ashley Bianco, says she didn’t leak the tape, and somebody claiming to be the real whistleblower is still taunting ABC News from inside their own offices.

That was last week.

And what has been the media’s reaction this week?

You won’t find anything about this story at ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, or CNN. Nothing at the NYT or WaPo. Ashley Bianco doesn’t matter to them.

There’s only one mainstream news outlet that’s following the story of a network news producer getting thrown to the wolves, to protect a notorious pedophile and all the powerful people with ties to him. Can you guess which channel it is? That’s right:

Out of all the news networks with sexual harassment scandals, FNC is the only one Hollywood has made a movie about. (Bombshell, bombing soon in an empty theater near you.) That single media outlet has become the scapegoat for the mistreatment of women throughout that entire industry. And yet that’s the only place you’ll find any news about this. All the other “journalists” have circled the wagons. They’re waiting it out and hoping everybody forgets about this story.

But that’s not to say none of them are worried about it. On the contrary, they’re terrified. Now ABC News is even conducting a witch hunt to track down the traitor who’s been committing journalism inside their offices. Emily Smith, Page Six:

ABC bigwigs are going potty to find the identity of the leaker behind the Amy Robach tape — after the alleged source posted a letter online slamming the network under the name “Ignotus,” a wizard from the “Harry Potter” franchise…

ABC investigators have been rifling through staff emails and news logs and grilling staffers. The company has been isolating certain employees and putting them under pressure to turn on their colleagues in a bid to find the culprit…

ABC reps declined repeated requests for comment, saying they could not discuss ongoing company investigations.

To sum it up: A woman at ABC News complained about being held back from reporting on an abuser of women and girls. Another woman got fired from CBS News just for having access to the tape of that complaint. It took yet another woman, who was fired by yet another network with its own sexual harassment scandals, to independently report on the whole mess. And the one media outlet that’s reporting on any of it is the one that has become the scapegoat for the misogyny in the entire news industry.

All that stuff about #TimesUp and #MeToo? None of our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters in the press actually believe any of it. None of these professional feminists really care about Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, or Ashley Bianco, or Megyn Kelly, or any other woman who pays the price for a man’s misdeeds. They don’t care enough to risk their own jobs, anyway. They’ll go after safe targets all day. They’ll yell about Fox News until they’re blue in the face. But the minute their own paychecks are at risk, all their “principles” go out the window.

In the meantime, Ashley Bianco is out of a job for no good reason. If you condone it or ignore it to protect your own skin, I don’t want to hear anything from you about social justice. You’ve lost your #woke privileges. You’re nothing but a pack of frauds.
