Woman fired over access to leaked tape of ABC's Amy Robach

"This comes after ABC informed CBS that they had determined who accessed the footage of Amy Robach expressing her frustrations about the Epstein story", journalist Yashar Ali reported on November 7.

ABC executives then made a decision to inform their counterparts at CBS that the person who was responsible for the leak was now working for their news division, according to Ali.

A person at ABC familiar with the matter who also spoke on condition of anonymity for the same reason said ABC News informed CBS that the woman had access to the tape.

The unnamed employee has not been accused however of directly leaking the video to Project Veritas. CBS declined to comment.

A CBS staffer who had access to the Amy Robach hot-mic tape while working at ABC News was reportedly fired after Project Veritas posted the explosive video on Tuesday. The video in question was leaked to Veritas by an unknown ABC News employee. Giuffre said in a sworn affidavit that she was flown on Epstein's private planes to his properties in New Mexico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Paris, and NY, and said meetings were also arranged for sex in London and elsewhere with Prince Andrew. Yet ABC refused to air it.

ABC News officially responded to the bombshell by claiming simply that "at the time, not all of our reporting met our standards to air, but we have never stopped investigating the story", yet has privately taken steps to identify and punish those who leaked the video. "Then, the palace found out that we had her [Giuffre's] whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways".

"Not only have most networks ignored this major story about ABC News killing the Epstein story years ago, but now CBS News has assisted ABC News in punishing the person who allegedly exposed it", wrote one.

The Duke of York has vehemently denied Roberts" allegations, which were struck from the record by a judge in legal proceedings in 2015 as being "immaterial and impertinent'.
