After former Fox reporter Ivory Hecker blew the whistle on her news station live on-air for censoring the truth and got fired for it, another reporter has done the same.
CBS 62 meteorologist April Moss announced live on-air during a weather report that she would also be speaking with Project Veritas about the discrimination being forced upon employees by CBS.
Moss was promptly fired from her position at the station, following a phone conversation with her boss in which he told April that he would be personally recommending that she be fired.
Moss claims that for several months, she had personally seen the station run stories that were verifiably false, including many pertaining to COVID-19 and vaccinations.
Moss also claims that she was told to only ask “softball questions” by her bosses in an interview with Dr. Joneigh Khaldun from the Department of Health and Human Services.
Moss claimed her station was not pushing journalism anymore, but replacing it with propaganda.
April Moss, the reporter at a Detroit CBS station who was fired for saying on-air she was planning to accuse her employer of discrimination, says her complaints largely concern coronavirus vaccinations, with a bit of Candace Owens and Gayle King in the mix.
In a video released by James O'Keefe and his Project Veritas late Tuesday, Moss complains that when she suggested interviewing Candace Owens during International Women's Month, the idea was nixed as "too political," and she was instead assigned an interview with Dr. Joneigh Khaldun of the Department of Health and Human Services.
When she interviewed Khaldun, Moss asked her to clarify her statement that COVID-19 vaccines prevent the need for hospitalization, since "there have been many studies showing that people have been hospitalized after the vaccine."
The doctor assures Moss of the efficacy of the treatment and says that negative reactions "are not necessarily directly related to the vaccine," but Moss tells O'Keefe that behind the scenes "my producer in my ear was saying, you know, 'move on to the next question.' He did not want me to talk about [it]."
She said her boss wanted her to ask softball questions such as, "Who inspires her," but she counters that it "would have been careless of me as a journalist not to ask" hard questions about the vaccine.
Moss says that the episode occurred not at her primary station where she's a meteorologist, but at a sister station where she occasionally filled in as a reporter.
Moss also shows a May 24 email allegedly from parent company ViacomCBS that reads, "Vaccine Hesitancy: we are using the power of our brands to encourage viewers to get the vaccine when available."
"I don't think that this is journalism at all. I think that this is propaganda," Moss told O'Keefe.
Moss also interviewed CBS This Morning host Gayle King, asking her, "You have a lot of voices out there saying there's fake news. How do you encourage those people watching today to stay objective in their journalism?"
"When I hear 'fake news,' I never think they're applying—that it applies to us," King says, prompting O'Keefe to show video of cars lined up at a COVID-19 testing site in Michigan for a segment on King's show last year. For that operation, O'Keefe interviewed a whistle-blower claiming the news crew wanted more cars for their cameras so put staffers in the line.
"We knew [CBS News was] coming, we had no clue that we were going to have to, like, do fake patients," a nurse says in the undercover video.
Moss, addressing O'Keefe but referring to King's assertion there's no "fake news" at CBS says, "It's a shame, because over the last couple of months I've seen personally that there have been stories that CBS has run that were proven to be fake."
Following the on-air incident, CBS 62 Chief Engineer Chuck Davis told April over the phone that he was going to recommend that she be fired, which she was.

"I'm gonna recommend that you get terminated."
"I'm not going to stand up for you."
April Details Media Corruption to Project Veritas
April is brave for coming out with this information, as the mainstream news has been proven to push false stories for years now.
April is also not alone in this fight.
April met fellow truth seeker Ivory Hecker, who shared a picture of the two on Twitter.
