Pathetic: ABC News suspends Brian Ross for four weeks for spreading fake news

Bryan Ross isn’t making an apology below, his words are Clintonian at best.

The only thing he is concerned about is his being put on the bench and losing a months pay.

 

For his part, President Trump laughs hysterically that ABC got busted for more fake news.

ABC’s bench for reporters must be woefully thin, just like the Democrats bench is for running a credible candidate to run against Donald Trump in 2017

Wow, he gets to enjoy the holidays with his family.

Such a serious punishment. Wretched hacks.

From MSN: ABC News has announced that Brian Ross would be suspended for four weeks without pay “effective immediately.”

 

“It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience – these are our core principles.

We fell far short of that yesterday,” the network said in a statement on Saturday.

“Effective immediately, Brian Ross will be suspended for four weeks without pay.”

Ross came under considerable fire on Friday after he erroneously reported on live television that then-candidate Donald Trump had instructed Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians.

 In a correction seven hours later, the channel admitted that it was “President-elect” Trump who had made the request of Flynn — a pretty significant difference.

ABC issued a correction on Twitter and also updated their original article.

ABC has sustained withering criticism from all corners of the internet since the error first became known Friday.

“We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday,” the network continued in its latest statement.

“The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process.

 As a result of our continued reporting over the next several hours ultimately we determined the information was wrong and we corrected the mistake on air and online,” it concluded.

It’s not the first time Ross has come under fire for playing fast and loose with the facts, either.

In 2012, he falsely suggested that the Aurora shooter Jim Holmes had been a member of the Colorado Tea Party — he was not.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
