Amy Bruni Was NOT Fired from Ghost Hunters
Contrary to reports, Amy Bruni was not fired from Ghost Hunters. Amy took to her Facebook account this morning (July 9, 2015) to set the record straight. Again. Unfortunately, it seems to fall on some deaf ears.
I agree with Amy; seems the story of her quitting doesn’t earn enough clicks. The author writes for an Internet publication that pays the writer for each “click” an article receives. The more clicks, the more money. Sweet deal, unless story ideas dry up.
As an attorney, I’m floored by the number of slanderous articles, posts, and the like that I read. Professional journalists should still vet out sources. They should still seek the truth. Just because an article appears online, rather than in print, it must still be factual. If not, the journalist destroys his reputation and credibility.
Unfortunately, Amy is also correct in stating that it would take a lot of money to sue. She has already taken the first step in hiring an attorney to address earlier inaccurate reports. Although his vocabulary is highbrow, his message should be heeded: Cease this erroneous reporting.

Personally I don’t care If she left on her own or If she was fired. Ghost Hunters is a TV show out there to make good ratings and money for the network so I’d wonder how much is truth.
