Fox Fires Reporter Who Declared On-Air She Was Being ‘Muzzled’ by Her Bosses: Report

Fox 26 Houston reporter Ivory Hecker announced Tuesday that she was fired after announcing during a live stream during a local segment that her bosses had “silenced” her and the discredited far-right activist Project Veritas had secretly given audio and video recordings.

“Before we get into this story, I want you, the audience, to know that Fox Corp. silenced me to hide certain information from you, the audience, ”said Hecker on Monday during her report (video below). . “And after all I collect, I’m not the only reporter exposed to it.”

The Daily Beast reports that in a phone call with Hecker, she “said she had just been fired from the Fox branch”.

But Hecker seems happy.

“Since last August, when I realized what they were, I have longed to part with this strange, somewhat deranged company,” she told The Daily Beast. “The project with Project Veritas doesn’t touch what they did. Fox 26 knows that I am fearless. “

She added, “I’m not interested in working for another company. They all follow the same line. “

It’s unclear what “line” this is, but it seems she would have been more comfortable with another “disorderly company”, possibly OANN.

Here is Hecker’s report from Monday.
