Megyn Kelly teases interview with ABC News Epstein whistleblower

Megyn Kelly is back at work and this time she's on a new platform. Branding her channel "MK", Kelly launched her new venture by posting an exclusive interview with 25-year-old Ashley Bianco, the Emmy-winning producer who was sacked this week after video was leaked of Amy Robach complaining about ABC killing her Jeffrey Epstein story three years ago.

ABC News had Robach issue a statement saying she was "caught in a moment of private frustration" and that although she was "disappointed" the interview didn't run, it "didn't meet our standards" and she was never told to stop reporting on the Epstein scandal. Bianco told Kelly she did not leak the video, but she did mark the moment when Robach asserted her allegation in the network's video editing software.

One might look at the "Greek Freak's" stats and think he ran roughshod over his primary defender, but that wasn't the case. The zone introduced a little chaos in the game, pumped up the pace, and allowed the Raptors to mount a comeback.

Bianco contacted Kelly directly for the interview, according to sources cited by the Daily Mail, after she was sacked by CBS on Thursday. She also declined to explain what exactly this new venture is - will there be other interviews, or is this a one-off?

Kelly, who is reentering the limelight after being fired from NBC previous year, posted a short clip on Instagram Friday morning, saying she would be posting the interview later in the day. But their primary point, especially given the apparent factual problems with the accuser she had interviewed (Epstein associate Alan Dershowitz, a Trump friend that right-wingers are now essentially implicating here, tweeted support for ABC's decision last night), seems to be both valid and important. "I put together amusing anchor reels of them off-camera", she continued. ABC, where Bianco had previously worked, informed her new employer that she was behind the leak of footage that showed Good Morning America co-anchor Amy Robach tearing into the network for shelving a story on Epstein three years ago, complete with an interview with Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of his most well-known victims. "I lost my dad when I was 15 years old, so I know. you don't get a do over.so I'm there and I'm enjoying it". Bianco definitively states that she did not leak the footage to Project Veritas, the outlet that released the clip, adding that she didn't even know it existed until the story broke. Rather, she had a job at CBS News at the time of the video's publication. It was leaked to Undertaking Veritas who posted the video clip on Tuesday. "I didn't even know who he was before this week". "It was humiliating. It was devastating", Bianco said. "Sorry to ABC, but the leaker is still inside". Project Veritas has not identified its source.
