& # 39; The airport calls Epstein Coverup, meet your party at terminal two east by American Airlines & # 39 ;, read the message on a screen at the airport as recorded in a video on Twitter.
It came on the same day as a leaked video, promoted under the hashtag #EpsteinCoverup, showed an ABC News anchor that bitter complain that network drivers had blocked her from reporting allegations of underage sex crimes against Jeffrey Epstein in 2016.
In a statement, airport officials confirmed that the page had taken place, blaming the bizarre incident for an employee's mistake.
Everything seemed normal on Tuesday at San Diego International Airport – until you look closer at the messages
The page seemed to refer to a leaked video from an ABC News anchor complaining that executives had blocked her report on charges against Epstein in 2016
& # 39; The call system of San Diego International Airport is an essential communication tool for airport users in a sometimes busy, hectic environment. Airport users rely on this system to reach loved ones or to receive notifications in time & # 39 ;, an airport spokesperson said in the statement to KGTV.
& # 39; In this case, our employee made a mistake. Steps are being taken to prevent such errors in the future & # 39; said the statement.
Earlier on Tuesday, Project Veritas had released the hot microphone of ABC News anchor Amy Roback, speaking frankly to a producer about how network execs spurred her report on Epstein.
Roback said she had carefully reported sexual abuse by minors in 2016, three years before Epstein was arrested in July for federal indictment of sex trafficking.
Robach is visibly frustrated in the video because she says she filmed the interview with Epstein prosecutor Virginia Roberts.

& # 39; I have had the story for three years. I had this interview with Virginia Roberts. We would not broadcast it, & Robach says at the start of the video.
& # 39; First of all I was told: & # 39; Who is Jeffrey Epstein? Nobody knows who this is, this is a stupid story. & # 39; & # 39;
Robach issued a statement on Tuesday in which she downplayed her comments in the leaked video.
& # 39; As a journalist, when the Epstein story continued to unfold last summer, I got caught in a private moment of frustration. I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts was not broadcast because we could not obtain sufficient confirmatory evidence to meet ABC & # 39; s editorial standards about her allegations & # 39 ;, Robach said in a statement after the release of the video.
On Thursday, CBS News fired an employee who was identified by ABC execs as the person who had access to the tape and leaked it, according to independent reporter Yashar Ali.
Epstein died behind bars at the Manhattan Correctional Center in August at the age of 66. His death was officially ruled as a suicide by the medical investigator.
