A CBS News weathergirl has become the second TV journalist to denounce her big-name mainstream media employer live on air.
CBS 62 Detroit's April Moss took a detour in the middle of her Sunday forecast for a rainy Monday — to reveal she would be blowing the whistle on the network's "discrimination" to investigative journalism collective Project Veritas.
"And speaking of a brand new week, I will be sitting down this week with Project Veritas to discuss the discrimination that CBS is enforcing on its employees", Moss said, without going into the details.
Hecker swiftly got a call from Fox Human Resources Director Tracey Rivers telling her she had been suspended immediately from her job.
The back-to-back public whistleblowing defections could provide a moment of schadenfreude for alternative media outlets previously subjected to similar attacks.
In 2014, RT News anchor-woman Liz Wahl went off-script and quit live on air with a diatribe against the Russian-owned network, after previously attacking Russia's reunification with Crimea that year. Her stunt won her guest appearances on major US news networks CNN, Fox, and MSNBC.
