Default ABC Suspends Reporter Brian Ross Over Erroneous Report About Trump

The joyous celebration by the Trump hating lynch mob following the news of General Flynn's pending testimony that candidate Trump ordered him to contact the Russians during the election has turned out to be based on fake news.

Quote:
Brian Ross, the chief investigative correspondent for ABC News, has been suspended for four weeks without pay after incorrectly reporting that Michael T. Flynn, the former national security adviser, would testify that President Trump had directed him to make contact with Russian officials while Mr. Trump was still a candidate, the network announced on Saturday.Mr. Trump directed Mr. Flynn to make contact after the election, as president-elect, the network said.

Of course to the hate Trump crowd this lie will have no impact on the credibility of the media who will quickly move on to the next phony scandal involving Trump. Brian Ross has been given Christmas time off to spend with his family and potentially work on his book about how he was victimized for telling the so-called truth about Trump. Like Glenn Thrush before him, fired by Politico for giving Hillary's campaign manager editorial control over his stories but then hired by the NYT as a White House correspondent, the suspension will only enhance his appeal to the Democrat loving media. He is committed to the cause you see.

I'd like to see foxnews suspend people for lying...oh wait maybe then they'd have no "journalists" left.

Journalism isn't a well respected profession and this has been true for a long time. ABC and others will smooth over the situation saying that there wasn't proper "vetting" or a quality guild standard was skipped. The latest example features Brian Ross lying to his audience as he reports on Flynn who is accused of lying to the FBI.

Yup. Back in the day the media reported the news and nothin' but the news.

Today? It's almost entirely networks with a liberal agenda reporting the news with extreme bias.

Stories like this are a demonstration of the integrity of some news organizations and how they take the truth seriously.
On the flip side, Trump lies his ass off and the right refuses to recognize it.

The people who admit their mistakes (news media) are claimed to be dishonest while the narcissist who refuses to admit to any mistake (Trump) is pretended to be the champion.

In retrospect, I don't know if things were great "back in the day". Maybe we just consumed what was fed to us because we trusted these guys and gals reporting to us from the TV screen. 25 years ago, before the internet, NBC faked a story about exploding Chevy trucks and got caught. The history of "legacy" media is embarrassing and dishonest. I think most of the major news organizations now employ a media critic to comment on false news stories and offer their own layer of spin.
Concerning Brian Ross, CNN is reporting that they have a recording of ABC's James Goldston's rant about the false Flynn story. Why would CNN have that recording?

ABC News for skipping a step in vetting the inaccurate Ross story. But wait, they had to clean up the mess when Ross recklessly claimed the Aurora Colorado movie theater shooter was a Tea Party member. Guess they skipped a step in the vetting process then too. Yet Ross was still a senior investigative reporter at the time he spread the lie about Flynn. Remarkable how forgiving they are when Ross smears Republicans and the Tea Party.

The so-called high integrity ABC news organization had to issue yet another correction when it accused former Trump campaign manger of working with a Russian intelligence official to write an editorial. Turns out the individual is part of the Russian intelligence connected catch all category. But who cares as long as it feeds the hatred for Trump.

Media bias has been around for decades, but the proliferation of fake news has not. I remember years ago pondering which news magazine I wanted to subscribe to. My choices were Newsweek, Time and U.S. News and World Report. At that time I recognized a bias in Newsweek and Time, while U.S. News and World Report reported facts without bias, so that's the one I went with. I don't know if that's true today, but I occasionally like to read the Christian Science Monitor online, because in spite of its religious-sounding name, it seems to report facts with less bias than many other media outlets.
