12:03 am
prince andrew a dinner which was arranged on hosted by you guessed it south and among those who wouldn't know who epstein was were both a.b.c. and c.b.s. phosphor 2015 managed to entice virginia robots to free one of the victims out of hiding produces through her and her family out to the a.b.c. h.q. in new york and hosted them and one of the big apple's most luxurious hotels what they got was the scoop of a lifetime to free through wind opened the door in the muck to world of epstein and his entourage as they flew around the wall down his private jet dubbed the express have a story of 3 years i've had to say are you with virginia roberts we know that i'm here 1st i was told who is geoffrey epstein no one knows who it is this is a stupid story. i tried for 3 years to get on to no avail and. now it's all coming
12:04 am
out and thinking well of revelations and i presume that this is the kind of story that makes koreas and gets people talking which is exactly why it was in some people's interests to bury it i viewed the b.b.c. interview as a potential game changer appearing on a.b.c. with its wide viewership would have been the 1st time for me to speak out against the government for basically looking the other way and to describe the anger and betrayal victims felt i was defeated once again by the very people i spoke out against and once again my voice was silenced i could not believe that a formidable network like a.b.c. had backed down and given in and for all those who are going to cry conspiracy one of the even came forward and confirmed he put pressure on the network to kill the story i simply provided a.b.c. with incontrovertibly evidence proving that jeffrey had
12:05 am
a long history of lying about tipper and al gore her age and other matters and that her credibility could not be counted on and while this exposition was sussing more salacious than all the reports on that side it wasn't the fust time his morals have been called into question stories piecing together a tangled web involving bill clinton and prince andrew had sophos before images of the finance his little black book with hundreds of victims' names and mugged alongside testimony from a 14 year old go claiming to have had sexual relations with the billionaire manhattanites gossipped about how new york city it was being ferried around on his private plane to his private island along with the coterie of very young women but all those revelations just like roebuck's were put back in the troll at the time not all are reporting that are standards to air but we have never stopped investigating this story ever since we've. a team on this investigation and
12:06 am
substantial resources dedicated to it that work has led to a 2 hour documentary and 6 part podcast that will air in the new year you'd be forgiven if that rings a bell because a.b.c.'s response is uncannily similar to n.b.c.'s comment about its coverage. of of media mogul harvey weinstein your efforts to tell the harvey weinstein's story and in the end b.c. killed the story because they said you did not have enough facts it didn't reach their level of journalism they're saying it's an ax to grind on your part so the book is as i said fair and even generous to them at every turn there was a very extensive factual process to make sure every one of the rebuttals is in there because the harvey story didn't run on n.b.c. ultimately took it to alternately took it to the new yorker they are concealing the fact that they actively ordered us to stop yes we had multiple named women in every draft of the story we had audio of harvey weinstein admitting to a crime but more pertinently they ordered us to stop and it seems a.b.c. was not the only one to fall into the trap of enabling cabstand to evade true media
12:07 am
scrutiny but it's vanity fair and the new york times had several allegations of his inappropriate sexual behavior but chose to stick to safe stories on things like the origins of his wealth and was sought to be careful to avoid reporting some of the more suspicious details surrounding his death are a lot of men in those planes a lot of men visited that island the powerful man who came into our hands into i think he was killed 100 percent yes and maybe a.b.c. was right no one knew who epstein was or maybe it didn't want to get on the wrong side of some very powerful people people who with you believe the room was might just now have blood on their hands so skewed tell a reporter that will be. exposed to so saying the comments were made in a private moment of for. stray ssion quick reminder some of the background of the
12:08 am
story the 66 year old multimillionaire was convicted of soliciting prostitution from a minor back in 2008 and then registered as a sex offender back in july he was arrested again it was about to face trial over the alleged creation of a sex trafficking network you've repeatedly denied those charges by the way a month later epstein was found dead in a cell in an apparent suicide nicaea and spoke with the founder of project journalist james o'keefe. well i think it's a huge concern and that the statement that you just read there was seemingly written by corporate lawyers for a.b.c. it directly contradicts what amy robock says on the set and this leaked hot mike tape i think comes across quite well and if i were her i'd be upset at these executives for squashing the story as well but the tape is if you watch the full 3 minute tape you'll see that she's she's very upset that these interviews with the accusers were not aired she says she's 100 percent confident that epstein was was
12:09 am
killed and this is a pretty prominent american a.b.c. news journalist making these statements and i have to wonder why did they not air these stories why why were that why was the sheld i think that a lot of these people are can are not trusting the media anymore in this country because the media does not cover the news i mean this is a big story this is a a huge story and you can see the the the anger you can see how frustrated amy robock when you listen when you watch this tape it directly contradicts what a.b.c. news is saying publicly now about not having enough corroboration there they're fine airing the allegations against maybe brett kavanaugh for or trump or anybody else but when it comes to bill clinton and some of these folks 'd that are mentioned by amy in this hot mike tape they say they just didn't have enough corroboration i'm not sure how a.b.c. news defines a corroboration when it comes to credible witnesses talking about sexual assault.

12:14 am
a line and feel that the local support that they once were receiving may be declining i think we're coming close to that point because at some point in time we're coming close to 7 years that they've been and will be so close to 10 years if not more and that's what some point the money government has got to realize that they're not making the relevant gains that they once were and more so. if things become counterproductive over time the settlers always been a difficult one again we are seeing for the 1st time if not in many most recent times where i s. and al-qaeda us into the working together and we've seen them active your prating on the same territory mallees clearly one of those territories so it can be very difficult to dislodge them and it's going to be very difficult for the cells become free of terrorism and free of jihadists. so this morning fresh revelations of emerged in the impeachment inquiry against us president

justice the government of iraq should listen to the legitimate demands made by the iraqi people so what happened former u.s. defense secretary robert gates stated on a visit to baghdad that a new era was just around the corner more than ever i believe the goal of a secure and stable and democratic iraq is within reach almost 12 years on things couldn't be further from the truth. now to make sense of post them to mention iraq and where exactly is grievances lawyer let's speak to nicholas j. davis author of blood on our hands the american invasion and destruction of iraq mr davis thanks so much for joining us today good to have you with us now these protests they've been going on since mid october they show no sign of slowing down indeed there's been a government crackdown condemned by many organizations word to these grievances that lloyd but a spreading out with such violence all over the country the people of iraq you know i still you know have really been ignored and all this they're still suffering from

12:25 am
a monopoly on power that the vast majority of the disenfranchised alienated people of iraq have never supported the u.s. who really has completely discredited itself from start to finish it has done nothing that has helped the people of iraq at all you know either before or after the invasion. a smaller story turn in southwest england probably from there so from the front line in the battle against racism but not everyone is happy about the changes it could bring. if this wording is not removed the town council could be classed as a racist white supremacist therefore this issue should be rectified immediately.
