You’ve got to hand it to ABC News: It takes some serious chutzpah to get busted for trying to bury an exposé on serial sexual predator and human trafficker of underage girls Jeffrey Epstein and then respond by conspiring with CBS News to fire the person responsible for exposing you, only to get the wrong person fired and proceed to carry out a crusade against the real leaker, all while defending the integrity of whistleblowers. And to do all of it without expecting to ultimately face any consequences.
Well, it appears there may be some consequences after all. Not from media firefighters like Brian Stelter, mind you, but from Congress. Yesterday, Megyn Kelly reported that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy would be taking action to hold ABC News to account for their shameful #EpsteinCoverup:
MK EXCLUSIVE: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy turns up heat on ABC: demands answers about why they spiked the Epstein story. McCarthy to ABC News Pres. James Goldston: “I am deeply concerned that … ABC News chose to bury the truth.”
