image for Bucking NDA, ex-Fox News reporter plans to tell Congress about outlet's role in Trump hush money story

A former Fox News employee plans to tell Congress about allegations the outlet tried to stop her from reporting on the Stormy Daniels controversy during the 2016 election, citing an exception to a non-disclosure agreement she signed.

Falzone’s lawyer, Nancy Erika Smith, told MSNBC on Thursday night that Falzone will now comply under an exception to her NDA with Fox News.

“The law requires that you be allowed to participate in any government investigation — and no NDA can stop that,” Smith said on "The Beat with Ari Melber.".

The New Yorker reported in March that Fox News prevented Falzone from reporting on Daniels’ allegations during the election to protect Trump, which Fox denies.

A former Fox News executive also maintains the story was shelved because it was not journalistically ready, not because of any political agenda.

Many NDA agreements include provisions that broadly bar public statements but still provide exceptions for complying with criminal and government investigations.

“Using NDAs to intimidate and silence government employees and other potential whistleblowers is deeply troubling,” Lieu added in a statement. »
