ABC, Which Covered Up for Pedophile for Years, Now In All Hands On Deck Frenzy to Find Identity of Their Own Whistleblower

The last person they believed -- incorrectly -- to be the whistleblower, they rushed to get fired at their supposed competitor, CBS.

So they're certainly looking to give the real whistleblower the punishment that they protected Jeffrey Epstein from.

They're all corrupt and they're all in league.


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.

Oh for the love of everything holy, read another book.

In addition to having been mentioned by Harry Potter, "ignotus" simply means "unknown" in Latin. Ever hear of it, ignorant dummy dum-dums?

Do you think maybe this Harry Potter got the word from Latin, or the other way around?

Seriously, read a book -- read anything -- you alleged media geniuses.

Anyway:

After junior producer Ashley Bianco denied leaking the tape, on which the anchor complained ABC News killed her interview with Jeffrey Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre, someone purporting to be the actual leaker and still working at the network posted a letter on Project Veritas blasting ABC's "mission of seek and destroy" to conjure up the mysterious mole.

ABC is using police hot-lamp tactics against employees in a desperate hunt to find who among them is guilty of journalism.

Top executives at ABC are 'freaking out' amid a probe into who leaked a hot mic video where Amy Robach is seen ranting that the network spiked a Jeffrey Epstein story, an insider has claimed.

The source claims ABC has searched emails and news logs in a bid to find the culprit and has been isolating and encouraging staff to turn against each other amid their investigation.

...

'They are freaking out over the Harry Potter reference,' the ABC insider told Page Six. 'Does this mean the leaker is a Potter fan, likely one of the younger staff members who work the overnight shift? Or is the leaker citing Latin, which means he or she could be an older member of staff. I mean, how many young producers speak Latin these days?'

Page Six reports the source as saying the company has been 'isolating certain employees and putting them under pressure to turn on their colleagues' regarding the footage from the Good Morning America anchor while she was not on air.

...

On Tuesday, Page Six reported the source also said the investigation into 'Ignotus' reports 'back up to the very highest levels at HR at ABC's parent company Disney'.

Meanwhile, CNN's alleged "media reporter," Fat Joker Brian Stelter, ignores this story to concentrate on the real story at ABC: Sean Spicer losing on ABC's Dancing with the Stars.


And CNN's alleged media "reporter" -- actually a paid corporate shill for the whole media, and not just CNN (they're all in collusion with each other) -- Brian Stelter continues to ignore the story.

CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter has raised eyebrows this week by giving little attention to the story surrounding Epstein, in which an ABC News staffer apparently leaked the explosive video to controversial Project Veritas -- a group that has been critical of CNN. The story is widely regarded as one of the biggest media stories in recent memory, but it appears that CNN isn’t interested in informing its viewers.


CNN advertises Stelter's "Reliable Sources" as a show that "examines the media world, telling the story behind the story" and that reveals “how the news gets made."

...

NewsBusters Managing Editor Curtis Houck told Fox News that he's not surprised Stelter "cowered and shirked his responsibility as a media correspondent and host" to at least acknowledge a "horrid tale of media corruption" on his show.

"But alas, this is what Stelter does and his ideology to defend the liberal press at all costs while playing the victim himself. This was instead of calling out ABC for robbing Epstein's victims of having their stories be told years earlier," Houck said. "Thankfully for him, this is exactly what boss Jeff Zucker and his deeply liberal partisan colleagues are more than happy to echo."



And then this morning, Brian Stelter covered the other real story at ABC: How great the new Disney streaming service is.



Sounds like the grossly fat monster is doing some favors for a potential future employer, huh?

And oh, this low angle shot.




Juanita Broaddrick has a good question about Credibly Accused Rapist Bill Clinton and his Credibly Accused Rapist-Enabling "Wife" Hillary Clinton:

I think that after Mueller flamed out, Barr said he was going to get to the source of the Russia hoax and then Rudy started poking around in Ukraine, they panicked. Ukraine was going to come up whether they wanted it to or not so they decided to try and get if front of it.

This whole process is an attempted misdirection. Democrats are trying to spin this as Trump trying to get dirt for 2020 when the reality is he is trying to get to the source of the Russia hoax which is in Ukraine.

The CIA, State Department, and other Deep State Orgs recruit heavily at Ivy schools, and especially Harvard and Yale. Why? Well these special snowflakes have been told practically since birth they're "the best of the best", and just as importantly, they believe that about themselves.
As they also tend to come from rich or semi-rich families they also come with a certain, ahem, moral flexibility that the Deep State finds very, very useful.
Indeed, we have become an aristocracy; one of the many reasons they loathe Trump so much. He's not "part of the club", amazingly enough.

May 2019 - Former vice president of Walt Disney Pictures and Television, Michael
Laney, 73, has been sentenced to more than 6 years in prison following a
child sex abuse investigation.

The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office said Laney was
sentenced on Friday to 81 months in prison after being found guilty for
four counts of first-degree sexual abuse on May 7. In addition to
Laney's prison sentence, the former VP also has to register as a sex
offender.



There was also an accuser from 2007 but they did not have the evidence to charge him for that.

186 >>> 'They are freaking out over the Harry Potter reference,' the ABC insider told Page Six. 'Does this mean the leaker is a Potter fan, likely one of the younger staff members who work the overnight shift? Or is the leaker citing Latin, which means he or she could be an older member of staff. I mean, how many young producers speak Latin these days?'

They don't have to know a dead language like latin at all; they just need to plug "latin+unknown+translation" into the Google-fu and guess what? Words pop up! It's like the internet is magic or something.

When I do that, a website pops up that has this helpful info:

"There are many words for "unknown", but many of them have tones you might want to avoid. For example, ignobilis implies low birth and alienus implies being foreign or perhaps unwelcome, although both could be used for unknown. The most neutral word I could think of is ignotus. The masculine plural is a good choice for unknown people in general."

See how hard that was?
What is idiot in latin?

191 Ironically, Rowling's books have some pretty insightful lessons about corrupt bureaucracies, fake news media, and Islam-esque death cults, but she can't seem to put two and two together in real life.

Also, the movies are superior to the later books because they're forced to edit things down, which Rowling had a real problem with.

Harry Potter is the upper middle class urban progressive fantasy. They're born better than the masses that surround them, and by right of birth are entitled to a place of acceptance at a prestigious school.

To be fair, that's pretty much the central conceit of every "common girl becomes a glamorous princess" fairy tale (Cinderella, for example), just HP swapped the gender on the lead.

235 Funny Harry Potter-related anecdote:

My wife, before we were married, ran the Disney half-marathon one year. After the race, she spent a day or two down in Disney, because obviously that's what you do when you run the Disney marathon.

Anyway, she went to the Harry Potter world, and they do this thing where you go to the wand shop, and during the show, they pick someone out of the crowd to do the demonstration and Choose Your Wand. She got chosen (she was like 24 at the time). I guess the group didn't happen to have any school age kids or whatever. Anyway, if you saw the first HP movie, you know what happens: they went through a bunch of wands, they make crazy thing happen in the shop through the sensors embedded in there... she's having a blast. Eventually they settle on one and make a big show of declaring "This Wand Chose You." She was so happy.

After the show, they took her aside and told her that the wand was like "$75 if she wanted to keep it." According to her, she said "That's Bullshit!" loud enough that everyone else in the shop heard and some of the parents in the audience started laughing.

So moral of the story, if you happen to go to Harry Potter land in Disney Florida with your kids, don't let them be the one doing the wand demonstration unless you want them to guilt you out of a bunch of money to let them keep the wand or else your kid is going to have a terrible time the rest of the trip.

Unplug from the news, my dude. 75% of their purpose is to demoralize and infect our side with gloom. Psy-ops. I'm being kind there. It may be higher.

Trump is doing great things. He could have betrayed us at any time for a shiny nickel and the added benefit of them leaving his family alone, with statues, fine news reports, and a vaunted place in all the history books. Nothing could have stopped him from becoming McCain once in office except his own integrity - and both parties gave him every incentive to do it.

The fact that they are still doing this shit shows you that he refuses to knuckle under. He quite clearly will not sell his voters or this country out. He's gonna win again in 2020. He is fighting for everything the Founders stood for. Take heart.

255 I like this part of the article:

An ABC insider said top execs were particularly puzzled by Ignotus. He is possibly best known as a Harry Potter character, a pure-blood wizard who has a cloak of invisibility, passed through generations, finally to Harry Potter. Ignotus also means "unknown" in Latin.

The ABC insider said, "They are freaking out over the Harry Potter reference. Does this mean the leaker is a Potter fan, likely one of the younger staff members who work the overnight shift? Or is the leaker citing Latin, which means he or she could be an older member of staff. I mean, how many young producers speak Latin these days?"


So they have it narrowed down to an old person or a young person.

Walt was at a gathering with a bunch of his animators and other studio workers. A couple of his guys knew this gathering was coming, and they made an animated stag film featuring Mickey Mouse.

Walt and the guys watched the film, laughing and acting like normal guys.

After the film, Walt demanded they tell him who made it. The two involved fessed up. Walt fired them.

I have very little trouble imagining Walt would go after pedos and communists with hammer and tongs.

Little VIA battled me every step of the way through the middle years, the teen years and throughout school.

Now in his second year of his Navy enlistment, when he and I talk, and we talk as often as a deployment allows, I sometimes tell him "Son, the older I get, the more I sound just like you"

Mothers and fathers have different rolls in a child's life.

"He's just a workman!" he replied.

"Seems to me he's a taxpaying member of society doing productive work, whereas you, on the other hand, are a parasite living off of the labor of others. Perhaps you could help me find the flaw in my reasoning."

314 Call me Ishmael. Some years ago--never mind how long precisely --having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen, and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off--then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can, and remember that Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself.

No name calling at my house. But in one of our many disagreements, my father slapped me, one time too many. (I was in college at the time, though still forced to live at home.) I looked him in the eye and said, "I will never speak to you again as long as I live."

I managed to maintain a stony silence to him for six weeks. Mom finally talked me out of it in time for Christmas. I wish I hadn't; nothing really changed. I'd like to think I had made it clear to him that I would do what I said I'd do . . . but who knows.

342 Well, reading through this thread, it is now obvious why I gave up on Harry Potter right before the last book came out. Every book just got worse for me and that's a shame (gave up the story due to Harry's personality, plus some deaths). Got into it from the movies, a bit older but still a kid, technically. I think the internet ruined a lot of experiences by bringing together fandom fringes and making them think they're the majority, which is only furthered by authors going down the ass kissing path.

Life was a little simpler, but not much different pre-internet. We just see more trash nowadays.

I wonder if the leaker purposely chose the name from HP just to see ABC flail around. It's such a near and dear franchise to the left, it must drive them mad that someone going against the grain is using it as a shield. Maybe this leaker isn't that far-thinking. Who knows?

Anyway, I find it hilarious that they're all freaking out over Spicer on DWTS as a way to hand wave the more important news of collusion between two agencies to stifle a whistleblower. First, they go nuts when the popular vote goes to Spicer, then they crow when he gets booted. Who cares? It's an entertainment show. More Hollywood idiocy. This is why I gave up American tv for mindless YouTube gamer and craft vids. That'll get taken away too, with YouTube planning mass takedowns and no replacement platform on the horizon. Besides, any replacement will just get bought up by another lefty organization, anyway. Rinse, repeat, the cycle goes on.

Their sheer numbers as a result of a booming economy after WWII, which we're seeing again now but importing a 3rd world population instead of birthing, gave rise to worshipping the stupidity of youth.

364 >>> Trump is doing great things. He could have betrayed us at any time for a shiny nickel and the added benefit of them leaving his family alone, with statues, fine news reports, and a vaunted place in all the history books. Nothing could have stopped him from becoming McCain once in office except his own integrity - and both parties gave him every incentive to do it.

I think his ego has something to do with it too. It's not ALL pure altruism and love of country. You disrespect him or belittle him, he will go all Michael Corleone on your butt. Which is so fun to watch from the sidelines.

But yes, agree with everything else. I LOVED hearing the Don Jr anecdote about them going down in the elevator to announce his run, and Trump saying now they will now find out who their real friends are. That is not a stupid man.

It's sad to say, but real conservatives have been the battered wives of the GOP for so long. Trump has shown us we deserve much better from the leader of our party, and that we can leave our political abusers and kick them to the curb. It's liberating. They are squawking like mad, like abusers do, and go all nevertrump. But they have no power anymore to hurt us and hold us back.

I also like using whatever stupid hip term they bring home A LOT to where they don't think it's cool.

408 364 >>> Trump is doing great things. He could have betrayed us at any time for a shiny nickel and the added benefit of them leaving his family alone, with statues, fine news reports, and a vaunted place in all the history books. Nothing could have stopped him from becoming McCain once in office except his own integrity - and both parties gave him every incentive to do it.

I think his ego has something to do with it too. It's not ALL pure altruism and love of country. You disrespect him or belittle him, he will go all Michael Corleone on your butt. Which is so fun to watch from the sidelines.

But yes, agree with everything else. I LOVED hearing the Don Jr anecdote about them going down in the elevator to announce his run, and Trump saying now they will now find out who their real friends are. That is not a stupid man.

It's sad to say, but real conservatives have been the battered wives of the GOP for so long. Trump has shown us we deserve much better from the leader of our party, and that we can leave our political abusers and kick them to the curb. It's liberating. They are squawking like mad, like abusers do, and go all nevertrump. But they have no power anymore to hurt us and hold us back.

We will survive, we will survive, hey hey!

Trump literally didn't have to do ANY of this. He could've sat in his office in Trump Tower, did a few deals and slowly palmed the business of to the kids, and then hit the links down in Florida and hung out with Melania in his golden years.

It's where the fanatical support for Trump comes from. Those of us who get it know he didn't have to do any of this, he's trying to deliver, and he is getting more done than any so called conservative president in over a generation (maybe longer depending on what you think about Reagan).

Oh, wait. No I wasn't.
Posted by: Yudhishthira's Dice at November 13, 2019 01:09 PM (AzW6q)






Hell, you should read about how Old Joe got the ambassador's job in the first place. Basically, he dropped trou in the Oval Office.

Seriously.

FDR really didn't want to give him the job, but he had to at least give him an interview. So when Joe came in, they talked for a few minutes, with FDR's son James in the Oval with them. FDR figured on insulting Joe to get him to walk out, so he commanded Joe to stand and drop his pants. Confused, Joe complied.

FDR started braying, "See Jimmy! I told you it was true! Joe here is the most bow-legged man on the planet!" He then explained that they had a mutual friend who had seen Joe in a bathing suit on vacation and had a laugh over Joe's legs. FDR then told Joe that the Ambassador has to present himself to the King in period dress, complete with white tights. And if FDR sent a bow-legged man to the King in tights, the US would be the laughing stock of the world.

Joe was pissed, of course. But he kept his cool and just said "If I can get the Brits to allow me to go through the ceremony in modern ambassador's dress of top hat, tails and striped pants, will you name me to the post? FDR figured that Joe wouldn't be able to swing it, so he agreed.

A few days later, the Brits notified the US Govt that the incoming ambassador (whomever he might be) would have the option of presenting himself to the King in modern ambassador's dress. Somehow, Joe was able to talk/blackmail/threaten the Brits into complying with his wishes, so FDR was stuck, and Joe got the posting.

448 Yeah I think neither Boomers nor Millennials have a lot of reasons to brag, both being a nasty corrosive drag on humanity and culture. My generation Gen X is basically a waste of skin, accomplishing nothing, doing nothing, building nothing, and being largely apathetic and useless. But at least we're not actively destructive.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at November 13, 2019 01:31 PM (KZzsI)

449 440 This was never a comparison. It's an objective fact that Boomers, as a generation, are a scourge. A few of them inventing the things that are currently ruining the world doesn't excuse that. You don't get to act like a kid up until the point in which someone calls you out about it and then get all huffy and expect to be respected.

Don't get me started on 'Millenials'. I used to think Gen X was the worst but I think, since Silent Gen people are almost gone, unless Zoomers prove themselves to be historically competent, that Gen X is probably the most sane of all of them. (I'm almost Gen X, fwiw - way too old to fit the usual pattern for 'Millenials'.)

450 "Don't get me started on 'Millenials'"


Blah blah blah. People are not "generations". People are individuals.

451 OK Boomer!

Posted by: Dan Patrick at November 13, 2019 01:35 PM (ymnmz)

452 450: people are individuals up unto the point in which a Boomer wants to claim prestige for the fact someone in his cohort invented the modern personal computer.
Yeah, I've played this game a billion times, individualism is where everyone is a special snowflake except for *those* people who perfectly fit the positive or negative traits of their cohort. You know who does this shit? Millenials.

Posted by: Radio Control Submarine Unit at November 13, 2019 01:37 PM (Eg9+v)

453 424 412 If I meet the Gen X or Boomer person who invented those things rather than pretended like they're cool because someone did when they were growing up, I'll show them the necessary respect.

Well, if you looked at the IEEE request for comments, you would see my real name on quite a few of them years ago.

But what the hell do I know, I just worked on Military Computers in the Navy, including software testing and development while at COMSUBPAC (which makes your nic funny).

And then taught Network Engineering and Security.

Oh, and worked in a Software Development shop on a Network Security project where we were trying to get IEEE to buy off on a few changes that would make our project work better.

Get off my lawn kid.

455 377 371 It used to drive me crazy when Sean Hannity constantly called Newt Gingrich "Speaker Gingrich". It doesn't any more because I stopped listening to him. But I'll bet he still does it.

I love listening to Hannity's producer Linda. She is funny, and sounds so "Noo Yawk."

456 Amy Robach's story didn't kill itself. It didn't twist old video tape into a rope, wrap the rope around its own neck, kneel on a desk and fall forward.

That story was murdered.

457 Please forgive me -- I misread the title as 'All Hands on D*ck', which completely changes the meaning.

Posted by: YvelCity at November 13, 2019 02:35 PM (3HmGZ)

458 What would be hilarious? Is if the leaker no longer works for ABC, but continues to claim they do.

Find me bitchez!
Posted by: rickb223 at November 13, 2019 12:14 PM (PrVhQ)

Be even more funny if the leaker is in charge of the hot lamp interviews.

459 They are freaking out over the Harry Potter reference,' the ABC insider told Page Six. 'Does this mean the leaker is a Potter fan, likely one of the younger staff members who work the overnight shift? Or is the leaker citing Latin, which means he or she could be an older member of staff. I mean, how many young producers speak Latin these days?'

They don't have to know a dead language like latin at all; they just need to plug "latin+unknown+translation" into the Google-fu and guess what? Words pop up! It's like the internet is magic or something.

When I do that, a website pops up that has this helpful info:

"There are many words for "unknown", but many of them have tones you might want to avoid. For example, ignobilis implies low birth and alienus implies being foreign or perhaps unwelcome, although both could be used for unknown. The most neutral word I could think of is ignotus. The masculine plural is a good choice for unknown people in general."

See how hard that was?
What is idiot in latin?
I reject these people as my betters.
Posted by: LizLem at November 13, 2019 12:38 PM (hvf9s)

I actually took Latin in high school, but I googled "unknown in latin" and the first site had ignotus as the first result.

Hardly rocket science.

Our 'betters' are so damn stupid.

Posted by: Oldcat at November 13, 2019 02:51 PM (FTPn0)

460 Little known fact: Ignotus means "lodestar" in Maltese.

461 Harry Potter is the upper middle class urban progressive fantasy. They're born better than the masses that surround them, and by right of birth are entitled to a place of acceptance at a prestigious school. Most graduates seem to end up in either the government, or some sort of non-profit, while all the work that makes society function is performed by non-wizards. They marry each other, live in their own communities where the culture and language are alien to the outside world.

And when I was in 7th and 8th grade, the age of Harry when the saga begins and the age of the readers Rowling was initially aiming at, I too believed my life was going to be like that.

I've achieved a great many things I've always wanted to do; but I grew out of that vision a long time ago. Apparently a lot of our coastal "elites" have not.
Posted by: Wolfus Aurelius at November 13, 2019 12:44 PM (Ejm1K)

There's a short-short SF story about a guy who always felt out of place in this world, feels he should have been born in a place with magic and castles. A wizard comes from that world to fetch him to put things right one day, takes him back to the castle.

Then he takes him to the stable, where the stable master hands him a pitchfork and tells him to start mucking out the stalls for the lord's horses.

462 Do you think an organisation called Project Veritas might have a handle on Latin terminology? ABC is hunting down a person who may has never seen the word Ignotus.

Posted by: Keltos at November 13, 2019 05:37 PM (Fn/rH)

463 After ABC finishes its internal witch hunt for the Amy Robach leaker, then maybe they could start looking for the thief who took the quart of strawberries from the mess hall. . .
