"ABC News announced Saturday that Chief Investigative Correspondent 
Brian Ross would be suspended for four weeks without pay over a botched 
"exclusive" about former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

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. The report 
raised the specter of Trump's impeachment and sent the stock market 
plummeting.

Later in the day, ABC issued a "clarification" to Ross's report, saying 
that Trump's alleged directive came after he'd been elected president. 
Ross himself appeared on "World News Tonight," several hours after the 
initial report, to clarify his error.

In a statement, ABC News said Ross' report "had not been fully vetted 
through our editorial standards process."

"It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built 
with our audience," ABC's statement added. "These are our core 
principles. We fell far short of that yesterday."

ROFLMAO!  As if the left wing, anti-Trump fake news has "editorial 
standards" .

BTW, thank you President Trump for the biggest tax cut in 30 years!

Just imagine if Fox News suspended reporters who lied. Fox would be 
totally off the air for a very long time.

Good for ABC. A station with integrity.
