Project Veritas just released a new video today featuring a sit-down interview with recently suspended Fox 26 reporter Ivory Hecker, who blew the whistle on her own network for what she says are acts of deception. She claims the station’s editorial decisions are an affront to honest journalism.
Here are some of the highlights from today’s video:
-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.”
-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.”
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.”

Fox 26 has already come down hard on Ivory after she made serious allegations against the station.
Rather than abiding by truly objective journalistic standards of integrity, transparency, and publicizing facts, they decided it was best to target an honest whistleblower.
