Project Veritas BOMBSHELL: Houston Fox 26 Lets Advertisers Pay To Push Narrative

Project Veritas’s latest bombshell reporting goes inside mainstream media and how you can’t always trust your local stations to put the viewers first. A reporter from Houston’s Fox 26, Ivory Hecker, alleges that her Fox Corporation Boss told her to “cease and desist” posting on social media about the benefits of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), among other alarming claims.

Ivory Hecker told Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, during the “sit-down” interview that the network’s practices were going to “deceive the viewers.” When she could no longer ignore the “corruption,” she decided it was time to record her Fox Corps bosses.

Hecker said that in “some stories,” advertising money played a more significant role than the truth. Ivory Hecker claims that after being sent on an assignment to cover a doctor at a Covid ward, she asked him if he has been using hydroxychloroquine to treat patients successfully. That’s when she says, “Fox came at my throat for standing up against censorship.”

Hecker recorded her Fox supervisors, Vice President and News Director Susan Schiller, and Assistant News Director, Lee Meier, pressure her to stop speaking about the benefits of HCQ. Susan Schiller is recorded saying, “You need to cease and desist posting about hydroxychloroquine.” While Lee Meier says, “In my opinion, you failed, as a reporter.” Hecker pointed out that they were the ones that put her on the hospital assignment but got angry once the doctor admitted that HCQ was very helpful in treating Covid.

Project Veritas secretly recorded Jennifer Bourgeois, a sales coordinator for Fox 26, admitting that advertisers can pay enough money to push their narrative onto the viewers who trust the local station to give them accurate and relevant information. According to Bourgeois, the CDC spent a lot of money on ad spaces during the pandemic, which helped promote Dr. Fauci and Dr. Redfield’s message.

Bourgeois said, “Yeah, they [CDC] are spending money. They are spending money because they can.” The CDC received billions to push vaccine information. She goes on to say, “They [CDC] are in the pocket. You know? They’re there.”

“Vaccines are a potential moneymaker for Fox,” claimed Hecker. She goes on to warn that “Fox gets paid for that. As a viewer, you need to look at who is advertising on this TV station, and you’ve got to realize – surely that the TV station doesn’t want to hurt its advertisers.”

Hecker said that Covid wasn’t the only issue where her bosses crossed the line. Lee Meier believed that her “poor African-American audience” doesn’t care about cryptocurrency and blocks its mention. Meier is recorded saying, “I may say, yeah and Bitcoin for a poor African-American audience at 5 [p.m.]. It’s probably not going to play.” Hecker said that her Fox Corp Bosses need to remember that their “first loyalty is to the citizen.”

The “corruption” has Ivory Hecker speaking out regardless of the professional setbacks. Hecker said she isn’t worried about the consequences because “the viewers are being deceived by a carefully crafted narrative.” She said, “It affects the viewers. That’s why I’m doing this.”

“At this point, I want out of this narrative news telling. I want out of this corruption. I want to tell true stories without fear of whether it fits the corporate narrative.”
