Brian Ross out at ABC

July 2, 2018

  It is being reported here that Brian Ross is resigning from ABC, joining Dan Rather as a longtime “journalist” forced to step down in disgrace after reporting fake news. In Brian Ross’s case the final straw appears to be his “reporting” that Donald Trump instructed Michael Flynn to contact Russia during the election. This caused the stock market to tank and led to his one month suspension. 

  Here is more:

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.”

  But this was not his first infraction because this is, of course, is the same Brian Ross who appeared on television with George Stephanopoulos and tried to blame the Colorado theater shooting on the Tea Party because he went on Facebook and found a person with the same name as the shooter who was a Tea Party member–it turned out to be a different person altogether. 

  This is long overdue…
