ABC News suspends Brian Ross over ‘serious error’ in Trump-Flynn report

ABC News announced Saturday that Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross would be suspended for four weeks without pay over a botched “exclusive” about former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

During a live “special report” Friday morning, Ross reported that Flynn would testify that Donald Trump had ordered him to make contact with Russians about foreign policy while he was still a candidate. The report raised the specter of Trump’s impeachment and sent the stock market plummeting.

Later in the day, ABC issued a “clarification” to Ross’s report, saying that Trump’s alleged directive came after he’d been elected president. Ross himself appeared on “World News Tonight,” several hours after the initial report, to clarify his error.

    Lets see, news media always getting caught lying about Trump, and FBI agents working against Trump. Yeah there is no bias against Trump.

    Did Soros take a short position on US dollars just before this announcement, and buy back afterwards?

      Very unlikely. The only person (and it has to be singular) capable of doing this – and keeping it quiet – would be … Brian Ross. And he seems too stupid.
