ABC News Suspends Brian Ross After Fake Bombshell Story
By Peter Hasson

ABC News has suspended anchor Brian Ross after having to correct what initially seemed to be a bombshell story on President Trump and former national security adviser Michael Flynn that sent markets tumbling.

The veteran newsman has a long history of erroneous reports.

“We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday. The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process,” the network said in a statement. “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.”

Ross, citing a single anonymous source, falsely reported that Flynn was prepared to testify that Trump ordered him to make contacts with the Russians during the campaign. ABC News later corrected the report, saying the still-unnamed source had “clarified” that Trump’s order took place after the election, during his administration’s transition phase into power.

    The lame stream media has been false reporting on Trump since he announced his candidacy, this is hardly news.
    Now getting caught spreading lies, that’s news.

  2. Let me see if I got this right. Fake news that had no basis at all, cost investors untold dollars, got the left’s panties in a wad, his boss had to retract (not correct) the story and ABC news is a standing joke just like the rest. He also falsely blamed the Tea Party for a shooting about 8 years ago. Now his employer loves his fake news so much that they suspend him for only 4 weeks without pay. The MSM still just doesn’t get it do they. Anyone else would have been fired for making their employer look like a fool but not the liberal crap peddlers. Loved by all liberals. Pathetic and ignorant on the part of anyone that would every watch ABC news again and ever believe a word that comes out of any of their talking heads.

  3. since when did the ABC network get a editorial standards process?

  4. Luke 8:17(KJV)

    17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.

    I guess that also applies to fake news being manifested for what it is too, as well as the truth being revealed!
