ABC News Suspends Brian Ross for 4 Weeks Without Pay Over “Serious Error” In Flynn Report
Written by broebling on December 4, 2017
ABC News announced that Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross had been suspended for four weeks without pay over a botched “exclusive” about former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Ross’ suspension is effective immediately. 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 Trump was still a candidate. The report raised the specter of Trump’s impeachment and sent the stock market plummeting.
