ABC News Suspends Brian Ross Four Weeks for “Fake News” Reporting…

What every media outlet will mention is that ABC has suspended veteran Fake News journalist Brian Ross for four weeks.  What few media outlets will mention is that veteran ABC journalist Brian Ross likely was seniority-scheduled to get the holidays’ off anyway. So meh…

(Via New York Post) ABC News reporter Brian Ross was suspended on Saturday for his botched report about Mike Flynn. “We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday,” ABC News said in a statement. “Effective immediately, Brian Ross will be suspended for four weeks without pay.”

The network explained that Ross’ original claim on Friday that Mike Flynn had been instructed to negotiate with Russian officials during the presidential campaign “had not been fully vetted” through their editorial process.

ABC News later issued a correction that said Flynn had received the instruction after the election by then President-elect Trump. (read more)

    ABC needs to fire Joy Behar along with The View staffer who informed her during the show of this fake news. Her exuberant reaction was truly wrong.

      Monstrous. Imagine what would happen on FOX news if anybody celebrated ANYTHING vindictive against Obama.
      –So tired of different rules for Satanic Leftists. We just put up with it.

      I felt her over the top reaction was not authentic at all. I think it was a set up and they knew in advance. How do people regularly watch that program? No brains among them, no talent or style either. That clip will forever more be the only minutes of the view I’ll ever have to admit to experiencing.;

    Mike Huckabee was just on with Judge Jeanine and said Brian is one of the most dishonest journalists he has ever known!

    I would love to see the paper trail on this one. What news service did Brian use? I have read the on-line versions but there are no sources for the specific ‘candidate’ or ‘President-elect’ terminology. The reporting is a mess in the on-line version as well.

    Is this journalistic terrorism or just a video?

    Congratulations
    to @ABC News for suspending Brian Ross for his horrendously inaccurate
    and dishonest report on the Russia, Russia, Russia Witch Hunt. More
    Networks and “papers” should do the same with their Fake News!

    Many
    people in our Country are asking what the “Justice” Department is going
    to do about the fact that totally Crooked Hillary, AFTER receiving a
    subpoena from the United States Congress, deleted and “acid washed”
    33,000 Emails? No justice!

    So General Flynn lies to the FBI and
    his life is destroyed, while Crooked Hillary Clinton, on that now famous
    FBI holiday “interrogation” with no swearing in and no recording, lies
    many times…and nothing happens to her? Rigged system, or just a double
    standard?

    ABC and Brian Ross cost some Democrat stock market investors MONEY. Wonder how many cold shoulders the ABC Execs will get at their holiday smoozers this season? I’m betting Limo Liberals don’t take it lightly when you mess with their 💰. I’m also betting this is what ABC’s reaction, prompt retraction, and Ross’s “apology” is really all about.

          If you lost money in the stock market due to ABC’s false reporting shouldn’t you be able to sue? What if you had a stop order triggered in the market & your shares were sold off because of this?

    IMO — We must be careful to avoid getting too caught up in and adopting the left’s methods. IE: hatred, revenge etc. etc.
    President Trump understands the power of truth….POTUS “has got this”
    Exposing evil with truth is the most powerful and valuable tool for reintroducing integrity and judgment to those who have lost it. Some will remember but some will never be able to understand virtue while still on this earth.

    Hey Sundance. It would be mighty interesting if the SEC investigated who had major stock transactions during that market drop. Who bought up and who shorted?
    There is one guy who made a fortune manipulating the market. Its interesting that the head of ABC sits on Soros charity board of directors.

      If I keep a “journal”, most likely it’s a book of my thoughts. So, what does that make “journalism”? I will be the first to admit that my thoughts are not always accurate. However, they are mine/mind.

    Well, Brian Ross rolled out his Fake News, tanked the stock market for awhile, then they had to backtrack the story all day… Then they suspend him for Four Fake Weeks, when he would probably be off anyway! The media is a mess these days.

    As if that is any deterrent – 4 weeks vacation at Xmas, who could ask for more?
    6 months would be better.

    Ross apparently has a history of making stuff up or, at least, making news of stuff made up. Even in the Obama years, he was quick to carry the water for left when it was not true. Ross is a shill for the left in a journalist label.

    “However, as a friend points out, now that we have established that the Mueller investigation can move markets, Robert Mueller should require all of his staff to put their stock holdings (including retirement funds) into blind trusts. If any of them were so foolish as to sell shares of anything right before an indictment of, say, Jared Kushner, they would face legal consequences beyond firing.”
