Project Veritas: Suspended Fox Employee Says She Was Muzzled Over Claims About Hydroxychloroquine

I'm just seeing this now.

Of course it's about HCQ.

Fox is as bad as any of them. It's "conservative-leaning" for suckers and dummies.

Fox 26 reporter Ivory Hecker was suspended today, after announcing live on-air that she had decided to come to Project Veritas for what she described as pure "corruption" at the Houston affiliate -- She said the station's actions are an affront to real journalism and claimed leadership prioritizes corporate interests over the viewer.

Hecker obtained recordings of her superiors telling her to prioritize the opinion of the station's General Manager, and the company's CEO, above that of the audience.

Hecker: "What's happening within Fox Corp is an operation of prioritizing corporate interests above the viewer's interest and, therefore, operating in a deceptive way."

Nah, that's crazytalk.

She also obtained audio of Fox 26's VP and News Director, Susan Schiller, telling Hecker to "cease and desist" posting about Hydroxychloroquine on social media.

Hecker interviewed Dr. Joseph Varon, MD, Chief of Critical Care and COVID-19 Unit at United Memorial Medical Center in Houston, who told her of his success using Hydroxychloroquine on certain patients.

Hecker: "The viewers are being deceived by a carefully crafted narrative in some stories."

Things turned racial behind the scenes, according to Hecker, who recorded her superior, Lee Meier, as they judged the newsworthiness of a story based on specific demographics -- on one occasion, a Fox 26 executive said that a "poor African-American audience" wouldn't care about Bitcoin stories.

Hecker said the decision to shy away from these topics was not made in the interest of the public good, but rather, in line with the leadership of Fox Corp and Fox's advertisers -- one of which is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Hecker: "There's a narrative. Yes, it is unspoken. But if you accidentally step outside the narrative, if you don't sense what that narrative is and go with it, there will be grave consequences for you."

Hecker: "Fox came at my throat for standing up against censorship."

Hecker had a call with Fox 26 earlier today in which she was asked to return her reporting equipment to the station.
