Lately, it is blasphemous to mention the name or Eric Ciara****a. You can get away with talking about anything else right now, but if you dare mention that name, you’re going to be in some deep dookie for it.
During a Fox News live broadcast, Mollie Hemingway from The Federalist let out the name or the alleged whistleblower and everyone was stunned that it happened. She did it purposely and I agree with what she said about it. Why are we treating it like a big secret?
According to The Daily Beast,
Amid a concerted effort by Trump’s allies to publicly out the whistleblower who filed the complaint about Trump’s infamous July 25 call with the Ukrainian president, right-wing media outlets have touted an online report purportedly sharing the identity of the person. Mainstream media outlets and social media platforms, meanwhile, have refrained from spreading the person’s name.
Fox News had reportedly also instructed its employees to not name the alleged whistleblower. CNN reported that the network had instructed staffers that it had not “independently confirmed [the] name or identification of the anonymous whistleblower.” Additionally, a network executive informed production staffers to “NOT fulfill any video or graphic requests” surrounding the whistleblower’s identity.
This left the Fox News anchors flabbergasted and they had no idea what to say or do. It was like she had just told a bunch of 5-year-olds that Santa Claus wasn’t real.
Howard Kurtz decided to protect his butt and said, “I don’t know whether this is actually the person or not and I don’t want to speculate about that. But there have been a few conservative outlets and commentators who have floated that name.”
But it was Kurtz recently who said that he wanted the name out there and that it would give a chilling message to other whistleblowers.
To be honest, I’m surprised that they didn’t just flat out censor the name when it was said. If you don’t know this, “Live” is never truly live, there is a slight delay and that allows some censoring to occur if needed.
