Another fake news pushing 'journalist' bites the dust.


ABC News’ Brian Ross — who was suspended last year as chief investigative correspondent for a faulty report on Michael Flynn — is leaving the network, Page Six has exclusively learned.

ABC suspended Ross last December for a month without pay for a botched report on ousted White House national security adviser Flynn that reported President Trump directed Flynn to make contact with Russian officials. The mistake even sent stocks tumbling, and ABC issued an apology saying: “We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error.”

We hear that Ross on Monday announced he’s leaving the network. His longtime executive producer Rhonda Schwartz is also exiting. “The time has come to say good-bye,” said the duo in a letter to staff with an announcement by ABC News president James Goldston.

Good for ABC. Naturally, amid all their glee, Trump supporters will fail to realize how this only reaffirms how Fox News has a long record of digging in its heels and refusing to fire anyone who fucks up or goes off the reservation until they get sued. Even then, for example, Sean Hannity is still there amid a potentially costly suit by the Seth Rich family. That's not how serious news agencies, like ABC, operate.

Post 4 before someone tried to derail the thread by diverting to Fox News. Gotta be a record.

There's nothing to say about ABC other than they showed the door to a guy who embarrassed himself and his colleagues with crucially wrong information. It was a good decision, probably should have happened earlier, but there are processes to follow.

You clearly don't want to hold your favored network to the same standard, so you cry about a "derail."

Why don't you start a thread about the Fox journalist who did what Ross did.

The thread is about the standards a news agency ought to follow with journalists who fuck up and publish false information.

You're choosing to insist on not talking about how well Fox News follows ABC's standard on this topic.
