Skip to comments.Report: Fox News Management Forbids Hosts from Using Alleged Name of Ukraine ‘Whistleblower’
Posted on 11/06/2019 3:08:27 PM PST by AAABEST
CNN Business states that while some Fox News personalities want to use the name reportedly linked to the whistleblower complaint, bosses have warned against the move. On October 31, an unnamed executive emailed staff that the network had not independently confirmed [the] name or identification of the anonymous whistleblower and advised to NOT fulfill any video or graphic requests in connection to the so-called whistleblowers identity, according to the report.
The demand from Fox News management to staff includes some of the networks most-high profile personalities, including Sean Hannity. Jeanine Pirro, host of Justice with Judge Jeanine, suggested on Friday that hosts were to follow the guidelines, telling viewers that she and other employees apparently cant say Ciaramellas name. On Monday, Hannity said he confirmed independently the so-called whistleblowers name, though he opted against revealing this name.

Eric Ciaramella. You’re welcome.
Sean can always just spell the leaker's name using the NATO Phonetic Alphabet...
Donald Trump Jr. just tweeted Eric Ciarramella’s name today and the media is responding predictably.
Before that RealClearPolitics broke the name (even as everybody already knew it), and Donald Jr. said 7 different magazines have published the whistle leaker’s name. To that extent, anybody can say “as reported by X magazine, the whistle leaker is Eric Ciaramella.”
Everybody in DC and the media knows Ciaramella is the whistle leaker. The problem is, the cowardly congressional GOP can’t subpoena him or call him to testify until somebody somewhere “official” publicly reveals his identity in such a way he can be said to be “outed”. That takes a mainline newpaper, a mainline cable TV outlet, a mainline TV news station, a quote from a national politician, or some such incontrovertible source.
As long as it is just the alternate media, everybody who knows his name has to go on pretending nobody knows his name. The most hilarious thing is when they go so far as to say “he or she”. They know bloody well it is a man.
What I would like to know its the original source of the info and how he got it. As I mentioned earlier, I think it was Sperry and it came out when he posted it on Twitter. I’m not sure Don Jr. and BOR have independently confirmed it. I suspect they haven’t.
For crying out loud.. it’s NOT a whistleblower! It’s a Freakin’ Leftist Scumbag Leaker who does NOT deserve anonymity!
Let Fox find someone else to replace Sean’s numbers if they fire him!
Thank you. That was very helpful.
the network had not independently confirmed [the] name or identification of the anonymous whistleblower
IOW - The network does not want to confirm this to maintain the this denial of truth.
But it was fine for the media to turn Joe The plumbers life upside down and inside out as a private citizen
He’s waiting for the last of his children to graduate from HS and go off to college and then he’s out of there.
That said, every one of those hosts should all on the same night say guys name. Including, Ingraham, Carlson, and Dobbs.
Together this group make up the bulk of Fox “news” viewership.
The rest of their line-up combined doesn’t even come close.
It won’t happen of course.
If PDJT knows name of alleged whistleblower then thats good enough for me.
Under new Fox policy, welcome to the news:
“Today or possibly last night, someone has been alleged, we have been informed by someone else, to have possibly done a certain thing. If this is later proven to have happened it was said by someone to have been done at an undisclosed location. To quote the alleged person “No comment at this time.”

The lawyer has threatened to sue based on the release of the name causing the rat harm
On the first look, that looks like an empty blow hard threat.
But think about it. The guy is a top rated candidate for arkanside.. He knows entirely too much about obummer, hillary, brannon and the rest of them.
So many that it would be hard to figure out who did it.
So the lawyer could make someone miserable.
We all know the name so this is a lot of noise about nothing.
GET THE WORD OUT
DOX the bastard
Chgogal, could you repeat that, please? We showed a blank for the name here.
They don’t like the President. They want him impeached.
Fox management is ridiculous.. All anyone has to do is DuckDuckGo Eric Ciaramella and it’s Whistleblower all over the place. Wish it said Whistleleaker instead.
Fox News used the names of 15 yr olds at Covington HS.
Howard Kurtz, Chris Wallace, and Smirking Shepherd Smith.
Now, theyre worried about protecting the Coup leaders.
