'UNPRECEDENTED': CBS Seizes Files of Fired Reporter Investigating Hunter Biden; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.23.24

According to a New York Post report, Catherine Herridge, the fired CBS reporter who was investigating the Hunter Biden laptop story, had her personal files seized by the network in an “unprecedented” move, sources told The Post on Thursday.

From The New York Post:

Catherine Herridge — who is the middle of a First Amendment case being closely watched by journalists nationwide — was among 20 CBS News staffers let go as part of a larger purge of hundreds of employees at parent company Paramount Global.

Her firing had stunned co-workers, but the network’s decision to hold on to her personal materials, along with her work laptop where she may have other confidential info, has left many staffers shaken, according to insiders.

“It’s so extraordinary,” a source familiar with the situation told The Post, noting that the files — which are presumptively now the property of CBS News — most likely contain confidential material from Herridge’s stints at both Fox and CBS.

The source said the network boxed up all her personal belongings except for Herridge’s notes and files and informed her that it would decide what — if anything — would be returned to her.

“They never seize documents [when you’re let go],” a second source close to the network said. “They want to see what damaging documents she has.”

A spokesperson from the network denied claims that Herridge’s files were being kept.

“We have respected her request to not go through the files, and out of our concern for confidential sources, the office she occupied has remained secure since her departure,” the rep told The Post.

“We are prepared to pack up the rest of her files immediately on her behalf – with her representative present as she requested.”
