BREAKING: ABC News issues statement about O’Keefe’s leaked video, but it goes over like a lead balloon…

ABC News has just issued a statement responding to O’Keefe’s leaked video of reporter Amy Robach lamenting the fact that she had the Epstein story but ABC News wouldn’t allow it to run.

Here’s the statement:

Below Robach’s statement is a separate statement from ABC News that is hidden by the embed. Here’s what it says:

At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards to air, but we have never stopped investigating the story. Ever since we’ve had a team on this investigation and substantial resources dedicated to it. That work has led to a two-hour documentary and 6-part podcast that will air in the new year.

Ok now watch the video again (the beginning part) of Robach’s leaked video:

That statement is garbage. Robach is clearly upset that ABC News won’t run the story. She says nothing about editorial standards – in fact she says she had the story, had everything and that she tried for three years to get ABC News to run it.

The statement ABC News released is simply to give anyone covering the story the ability to dismiss it as ‘editorial standards’ AND, of course, to cover their own butt because this is so explosive.

Here’s some twitter reaction to the statement:
