CNN got busted by Project Veritas, and now it’s ABC’s turn. Washington correspondent, David Wright, an admitted socialist, was recorded exposing the blatant partisan nature of ABC’s reporting. His reward for this unwanted honesty was a suspension.
For saying what?
“I feel terrible about it. I feel that the truth suffers, the voters are poorly informed, and people also have the opportunity to tune into whatever they want to hear,” Wright said in the video, which also features an ABC News producer.
“And so, it’s like there’s no upside, or our bosses don’t see an upside in doing the job we’re supposed to do, which is to speak truth to power and hold people accountable.”
Wright is caught on camera saying he’s a socialist who thinks there are too many billionaires, and that he’d be good with reigning in big corporations? Do you mean like ABC or its parent company Disney?
I think the answer has to be yes, but no. Well, maybe.
To his credit, Wright did add that while he does not like the president “that Trump is sometimes not given ‘credit for what things he does do.'”
This undercover video was recorded while Wright was covering the NH Primary. We expect Dick Head or Dick Tracey (from the NH AG’s office) to issue fresh subpoenas any day now.
