One fake news peddler is gone and we’ve got about a zillion more to go…
Oh, that all news outlets would hold their alleged reporters to these standards!
There’d be dead air on CNN and MSNBC 24 hours a day.
But wouldn’t that be better than what they’re putting out now?
Unfortunately, that’s not the way it’s going — yet.
Brian Ross is leaving ABC News after 24 years of reporting. His exit comes after he was suspended at the end of last year for fake news regarding ‘Russian Collusion’ and Mike Flynn.
Page Six reports:
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.
“After a great run of 24 years, we have decided to pack up and move on from ABC News, an organization that has meant so much to us. We leave with enormous gratitude for all those who supported us and helped build the industry’s most robust and honored investigative unit.” They added: “While we are signing off from ABC News, we are hardly leaving investigative journalism. There is much more to do.”
At the time of that false Flynn report, ABC issued the following statement:
— ABC News (@ABC) December 2, 2017
Do you hear that, CNN? Fake News doesn’t pay — and it could cost you your career.
Who do you think will be next on the chopping block for ‘fake news’ reporting? (This is, of course, barring another Matt Lauer sort of situation.)
I know, I know. I didn’t include Rachel Maddow, April Ryan, or Joe and Mika, but that poll would have a hundred entries if I didn’t limit it to the most likely candidates.
Now that the Media (D) is losing one of the fake news reporters, it’s time to focus on what matters — Draining the Washington Swamp.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
