The Fox 26 reporter who went mega viral on Monday night for announcing — LIVE on-air — that she went to Project Veritas about being censored by FoxNews corporate has been suspended, and posted audio of the call online.
Ivory Hecker started off her segment about air conditioning with an announcement that she has been “muzzled” by Fox Corp from expressing views that are as yet unknown.
“I want to let you the viewers know that Fox Corp has been muzzling me to keep certain information from you, the viewer. And from what I’m gathering I’m not the only reporter being subjected to this. I am going to be releasing some recordings about what goes on behind the scenes at Fox because it applies to you the viewer. I found a non-profit journalism group called Project Veritas who is going to help put that out TOMORROW, so tune into them.”
On Tuesday, Project Veritas released audio of a phone call from the station’s assistant news director Lee Meier telling her that she is suspended, effective immediately, but that they would “be in touch.”
They also let her know that she was not allowed to enter the studio.
UPDATE: Project Veritas has just informed 24News that they will be publishing Ms. Hecker’s videos Tuesday evening.
