Remember when the establishment media took former President Donald Trump’s comments about the media being the “enemy of the people” to mean that he wanted them shut down and not able to report even though he never once weaponized the Department of Justice (DOJ) to go after a reporter? Well, it seems that for the Biden regime and leftists alike, projection is the sincerest form of flattery, because there’s a longtime ABC producer who hasn’t been seen in months since the FBI raided his home back in April.
In a very rare bit of actual journalism by the far-left music rag Rolling Stone, they documented the peculiar case of former ABC News producer James Gordon Meek.
This gist of the story was summed up in a tweet by independent journalist Greg Price.
“Last April, the FBI raided the home of ABC journalist James Gordon Meek, who was finishing up a book about Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan,” Price wrote in the tweet. “He’s been charged with no crime, abruptly resigned from his job, and nobody has seen him since.”

Last April, the FBI raided the home of ABC journalist James Gordon Meek, who was finishing up a book about Biden's withdrawal from Afghanistan.
He's been charged with no crime, abruptly resigned from his job, and nobody has seen him since.https://t.co/43lgfw0M0Z
In fact, Meek’s presence — or lack thereof — was the focal point of the Rolling Stone article. They talked to the landlord of the apartment Meek had been living in for 10 years — nothing. They spoke to colleagues of Meek — nothing.
It was as if they were searching for Bobby Fischer, essentially a ghost.

“With nine years at ABC under his belt, a buzzy Hulu documentary poised for Emmy attention, and an upcoming book on the military’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, the 52-year-old bear of a man seemed to be at the height of his powers and the pinnacle of his profession,” writer Tatiana Siegel wrote.
So where did a man with so much going for him simply disappear to? Once the FBI raided Meek’s home and got a hold of him, it was as if he vanished.
What seems to be the only possible conclusion as to why Meek disappeared —outside of actual evidence — was the possibility of his possession of classified materials that could’ve been used towards an upcoming book he was writing on the Biden regime’s bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021.
Price brought up another point of Meek's story that has a very interesting caveat concerning who would've had to sign off on the raid had they been targeting personal and/or classified information.
Another interesting angle of the story: If the raid was for the personal documents of a journalist, it would have had to be personally signed off on by U.S. Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco.https://t.co/43lgfvICMR— Greg Price (@greg_price11) October 19, 2022
Even stranger, in the months before he vanished, Meek was finishing up work on a book for Simon & Schuster titled Operation Pineapple Express: The Incredible Story of a Group of Americans Who Undertook One Last Mission and Honored a Promise in Afghanistan, which he co-authored with Lt. Col. Scott Mann, a retired Green Beret. Meek even featured a picture of the soon-to-publish book in his bio on social media and frequently tweeted about his involvement. But post-April 27, the book-jacket photo disappeared from his bio, and Simon & Schuster has scrubbed his name from all press materials. The first sentence of the jacket previously read: “In April, ABC News correspondent James Gordon Meek got an urgent call from a Special Forces operator serving overseas.” Now it says: “In April, an urgent call was placed from a Special Forces operator serving overseas.”
And just like that, Meek was scrubbed. There was no conclusion as to the whereabouts of Meek, and a person that worked with him in the Hulu project “3213 Un-Redacted” voiced concern for Meek and themselves.
“I just want to know what happened,” said the source. “[Meek’s situation] is making me nervous. I’m just gonna deadbolt my door.”
That's not a very reassuring take for the future of the freedom of the press.
