The Fox reporter caught on air talking about her plans to speak out against her employer as a whistleblower to Project Veritas has reportedly been released by the network.
The controversy began when reporter Ivory Hecker, a reporter at Houston’s Fox 26, said she planned to release information she had collected against the network.

“Before we get to that story, I want to let you, the viewers, know that Fox Corp has been muzzling me to keep certain information from you, the viewers,” Hecker said.
“And from what I’m gathering, I am not the only reporter being subjected to this.”
Fox responded by reportedly suspending the reporter until further notice.

It is unclear from conflicting reports whether Hecker was suspended and later terminated or whether she was only suspended.

In a Project Veritas update on Tuesday, the non-profit reported, “Project Veritas 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.”
The report added that Fox 26 Houston has responded through a company spokesperson: “FOX 26 adheres to the highest editorial standards of accuracy and impartiality. This incident involves nothing more than a disgruntled former employee seeking publicity by promoting a false narrative produced through selective editing and misrepresentation.”
The saga will continue, as many Americans want to know the real influences behind the headlines reported in today’s media.
