ABC Issues Another Correction Over Russia Fabrication

It’s not a great week to be on the Russia beat at ABC News. Brian Ross was suspended from the network for his shoddy report declaring that candidate Donald Trump had instructed former national security advisor Michael Flynn to contact the Russians. It turns out it was president-elect Trump who had given Flynn those orders – not exactly a bombshell. ABC corrected its report, but not before The View’s Joy Behar ran with the original tale on her program.

Soon after that debacle, the network got a key component of another Russia-related story wrong. The outlet published a report Monday that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort had worked with a Russia intelligence-connected official as late as last week.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is rejecting Paul Manafort’s request to modify his terms of his confinement, because, in an explosive allegation, it says “as late as November 30, 2017, Manafort and a colleague were ghostwriting an editorial in English regarding his political work for Ukraine.”

  1. IT IS TIME THE NEWS MEDIA GOT IT RIGHT OR ALL REPORTERS THAT GIVES OUT FALSE INFORMATION BE FIRED AND NOT ALLOWED TO REPORT ANY NEWS, AND IF THE MEDIA DOES NOT CLEAN UP THIS FALSE STUFF, THEIR LICENSES SHOULD BE TAKEN AND NOT ALLOWED TO PRINT THE NEWS. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HAS A WAY TO MAKE A HEADLINE TELL ONE STORY AND THE BODY OF THE MESSAGE, ANOTHER STORY, SO FAR, ALL I HAVE READ IN MY PAPER IS FAR LIBERAL.

    • Joy Behar had a cow when she blurted out this FALSE NEWS!
      She should get together with Michael Moore and help him HAUNT houses!

      You talk about looking like a jerk!
      That Fat-Mouthed Woman is suffering from all Whoppi’s farts on the set!
      The fumes are affceting her libido!!!

  2. The entire Mueller investigation is a crime itself. It was predicated on the phony Trump dossier which has been proven to be BS paid for by the DNC and Clinton herself. Then Mueller gets appointed not due to actual criminal charges which are required for a Special Counsel to be appointed but by a conspiracy on the part of Comey and his good buddy Mueller. That is what Comey deliberately created by leaking private information to a college friend of his in the media. Why the hell could Sessions not connect the dots? Just a stupid old fool all starry eyed about getting to be the U.S. A.G. I guess. Not Mueller has gone rogue and is not even looking at Russian collusion. HE NEEDS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE BY CONGRESS.

  3. It is a sad state of affairs when biased hatred is so thick people try to make lying the new truth. God Bless OUR President Donald J. Trump and these United States of America.Merry Christmas folks
