He broke the number one rule of the Fake media: don’t get caught. :lol:

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.

Considering the volume of crap ABC has been pumping out, gleefully, what are they suspending Brian Ross for...?  What exactly was the grevious, slanderous, incorrect, erronous, whatever, statement?

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

Isn't that what a member of the transition team is suppose to do???  Open talks with foreign governments?  Does ABC have something else on Brian Ross we don't know about - fabricating and twisting tales seems to come naturally for newscasters these days, Joe and Mika aren't suspended, did Ross' ratings drop?  No, that couldn't be it, the liberal media doesn't care if ratings tank - just look at the NFL.  Maybe Ross pissed of an executive at ABC by accidentally  saying, "President Trump" without a scowl on his face?

Sorry if it sounds like I'm defending Ross - but, this doesn't make sense, a minor slip-of-the-tongue, and a 4 week suspension without pay?  Considering the LOUSY reporting bordering on Marxist Revolutionist Propaganda coming out of the major networks, this is overkill.

Maybe ABC executives didn't have sufficient time to short-the-market before Brian Ross went on the air, or thought this was the next-big-crash, hit the SELL NOW!!!  and sold low ... thinking Brian Ross triggered a panic?   It wouldn't be the first time the networks managed to tank the economy by their drum beat of doom-n-gloom reporting.  I don't get it.

Don't provide Ross with any benefit of doubt. He has been a leftist shill for years. This was not a slip of the tongue, it was deliberate attempt to give "fake news".

Someone had to be the fall guy for ABC' lies.
Remember, Ross is merely a news reader, not a true commie Urinalist, he only says what they give him in writing.
Truth is, this goes to the heart of what ABC, CNN, or any myriad of alphabet arranged networks you come up with, they are all guilty of news dissemination/manipulation.
You can all expect to discover Ross was sent on an all expenses paid sabbatical.

But, Sup...  this is *minor* in comparison to years of deliberate mis-reporting - why a suspension, and so PUBLIC about it over what I'd consider a minor thing?   We all know ABC has SUCKED since the Wide World of Sports evaporated, lipstick isn't gonna make this pig-of-a-network attractive again!

4 weeks with no pay is nothing more than a mere vacation to him. How about he repay everyone who lost money on the stock market.

Precisely!   IMO, that's what really iced it for him.

(ABC execs huddled in a dark, smoke filled room, "We just lost $50k, thanks to Ross... what's that translate into his wages?   about 4 weeks?  Done, suspend his tush for 4 weeks without pay, see if he like it!!")

Thing is, Ross is merely the fall guy in the big picture that is, the leftist concerted media.
ABC needed a scapegoat, so they sacrificed the messenger instead of owning responsibility.

It may be minor, but to forgive because others are worse is enabling them to continue on. I agree with Solar he may be a scapegoat as it was getting a little hot for ABC.

For ABC, the only principle involved was the $350 billion of principal
that evaporated on Wall Street, moments after Ross began yapping.

IMHO, Wall Street is too damn touchy.

Yep, the epitome of killing the messenger for your own message embarrassing.
I say let's have an investigation, I want to know who wrote his copy, who signed off on it and why.

I was thinking the same thing. Ross just reads the news, right? So it's obvious that ABC is just in CYA mode - not punishing the real crimes. They should be held accountable for that - seems like an easy case to file then press them.
