Staff at ABC News ‘Excoriated’ by President Over Brian Ross Fake News Story

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

President Trump’s fake news moniker is gaining lots of traction.

On Friday, ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross reported President Trump’s Former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn was prepared to testify he was directed by then-candidate Trump to speak with Russians about foreign policy matters.

Fox News reports:

During a live “special report” Friday morning, Ross reported that Flynn would testify that Donald Trump had ordered him to make contact with Russians about foreign policy while he was still a candidate.

Ross was wrong.

As president-elect, Mr. Trump directed Mr. Flynn to make contact with Russians after the election.

ABC News President James Goldston voiced his outrage to staff over the erroneous reporting during Monday’s editorial call.

CNN reports:

During ABC News’ morning editorial call Monday, audio of which was obtained by CNN, Goldston excoriated his staff for the error.

“I don’t think ever in my career have I felt more rage and disappointment and frustration that I felt through this weekend and through the last half of Friday,” Goldston said.

“I don’t even know how many times we’ve talked about this, how many times we have talked about the need to get it right,” he added. “That how we have to be right and not first. About how in this particular moment, with the stakes as high as these stakes are right now, we cannot afford to get it wrong.”

President Trump weighed in on the matter by Tweeting a response to the suspension of Ross:

The liberal media continues their political agenda to discredit President Trump and his administration.
