Ivory Hecker was slated to report on power outages June 14, 2021, but instead sent her own shockwaves through the station.
“Before we get to that story, I want to let you the viewers know that (Fox) has been muzzling me to keep certain information from you, the viewers — and from that I’m gathering, I’m not the only reporter being subjected to this. I’m going to be releasing some recordings about what goes on behind the scenes at Fox, because it applies to you, the viewers,” she said.
She went on to announce that she has been working with Project Veritas and that the far right wing will help her release information “tomorrow” (meaning June 15, 2021).

It’s not immediately clear what information will be released or in what format — or what side of the political spectrum it will be presented from.
Conventional thinking would indicate that Fox, which is owned by the mostly highly conservative Murdoch family, would be, perhaps, guilty of “muzzling,” as Hecker put it, left leaning information or stances.
Project Veritas is also infamous for releasing audio and video recordings that have been selectively edited to seemingly benefit whatever angle they are peddling.
Donors to the organization include the now defunct Donald J. Trump Foundation and a fund backed by the conservative Koch brothers.
