ABC News SUSPENDS BRIAN ROSS Over Erroneous Report About Pres Trump


Brian Ross suspended from ABC News for 4 weeks without pay...



The Hill reported:
ABC announced on Saturday that it was suspending ABC News reporter Brian Ross after the network was forced to correct his report saying former national security adviser Michael Flynn would testify against President Trump.

"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 short of that yesterday. Effective immediately, Brian Ross will be suspended for four weeks without pay," the network said in a statement.

Ross's suspension comes after ABC initially reported on Friday that Flynn would testify that Trump directed him during the campaign to make contact with Russian officials.
Stocks plunged shortly after the report was put out.

The network soon issued a "clarification," saying that Trump had asked Flynn during the campaign "to find ways to repair relations with Russia and other hot spots," but drew backlash from conservatives and media figures for not calling it a "correction."
