Fox and CBS Respond
Fox 26 confirmed that Ivory Hecker was fired. And they dispute her claims as a “false narrative”. It has been reported that Fox may be filing suit against Hecker.
“FOX 26 adheres to the highest editorial standards of accuracy and impartiality. This incident involves nothing more than a disgruntled former employee seeking publicity by promoting a false narrative produced through selective editing and misrepresentation,” a spokesperson for Fox said.
Meanwhile, CBS released a statement confirming Moss’s termination from her job.
“April Moss objected to WWJ-TV’s policies regarding Covid-19 testing and wearing masks inside our station, which are based on CDC, state and local guidelines,” the station claims.
“Any suggestion that she was in any way a victim of ‘discrimination’ due to her concerns about these policies is completely false. In fact, we allowed April to perform her weather anchor duties from home as we explored her concerns.”
