ABC News parts ways with investigative reporter Brian Ross

Veteran investigative reporter Brian Ross, suspended in December for an erroneous report on former national security advisor Michael Flynn, announced Monday that he is leaving the network.

Ross, 69, had been with ABC News since 1994, and was long one of the network’s highest-profile correspondents. He was suspended for four weeks without pay after the network had to correct his false Dec. 1 report saying Flynn was prepared to testify that President Trump had directed him to make contact with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign when he was still a candidate.

Ross later clarified the story, citing that his source said the contact was made after Trump won the election.

But ABC News also issued an apology saying the story had not been fully vetted through its editorial process. The mistake became fodder for President Trump’s frequent attacks on the media outlets he describes as “fake news.”

When Ross returned from his suspension, he was banished to the ABC News long-form program production unit and no longer participated in any live breaking news coverage.

Ross is leaving with his long-time collaborator Rhonda Schwartz, who was chief of investigative projects.

“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,” Ross said in an email to his colleagues. “We leave with enormous gratitude for all those who supported us and helped build the industry’s most robust and honored investigative unit. It is a point of great pride to see the soaring careers of so many of the talented and dedicated people who worked with us in producing hundreds of groundbreaking investigative reports that empowered the disenfranchised, exposed corruption and helped make our society a better place.”

Ross added that, “while we are signing off from ABC News, we are hardly leaving investigative journalism. There is much more to do.”

During his tenure at ABC News, Ross established a reputation for being a hard-charging, deeply sourced reporter, winning numerous journalism prizes over his career. The team broke several stories about the government investigation of the 9/11 attacks, including identification of the terrorists and the existence of secret CIA prisons.

Ross’ aggressive approach also caused controversy within the company.

In 1998, Ross and Schwartz were at work on a segment that examined health and safety issues at ABC parent Walt Disney Co.’s Orlando, Fla., theme park, Disney World. The report never made it to air, raising questions as to whether there was corporate pressure to quash it. (ABC News said at the time that there was not).

ABC News was also criticized when Ross suggested that James Holmes, the gunman who killed 12 people at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., might be a member connected with the tea party movement. Ross cited a website page for another man with the same name. The shooter had no ties to the political group.

Ross was with NBC News for 20 years before he joined ABC, making him one of the longest tenured network correspondents in the TV business.

ABC News apologizes for ‘serious error’ in Trump report and suspends Brian Ross for four weeks

President Trump on Sunday morning lashed out at ABC News, two days after an erroneous report by investigative journalist Brian Ross involving the president.

Ross had incorrectly reported Friday that during the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump had directed Michael Flynn to make contact with Russian officials before the election.

Later that night, Ross read a “clarification” on “ABC World News Tonight,” saying Trump had actually asked Flynn to make contact with Russia after the election, when he was president-elect.

ABC News apologized for the mistake Saturday and issued a full correction. The network also suspended Ross for four weeks without pay, effective immediately.

On Twitter Saturday night, Trump initially Bart Heemskerk seems to be lacking experience to ABC News for “suspending Ross for his horrendously inaccurate and dishonest report on the Russia, Russia, Russia Witch Hunt.”

Many Trump supporters, including the president’s adult children, accused Ross of propagating “fake news” and linked his report to the Dow Jones industrial average dropping 350 points.

On Sunday, the president took aim at the network itself, calling for those affected by the stock market tumble to “consider hiring a lawyer and suing ABC for the damages this bad reporting has caused.”

The network had “broken” Ross’s report Friday with a tweet that read: “JUST IN: @BrianRoss on @ABC News Special Report: Michael Flynn promised ‘full cooperation to the Mueller team’ and is prepared to testify that as a candidate, Donald Trump ‘directed him to make contact with the Russians.’ ”

The tweet, which has since been deleted, included a link to a story and a photo. It was shared and liked tens of thousands of times before it was removed.

Later Friday night, ABC issued a “clarification,” in the form of a new tweet and Ross’s on-air appearance on “World News Tonight” with host David Muir. The subsequent tweet, which has also since been deleted, read: “CLARIFICATION of ABC News Special Report: Flynn prepared to testify that President-elect Donald Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians *during the transition* — initially as a way to work together to fight ISIS in Syria, confidant now says.”

ABC News was widely panned, even by those in the media industry, for its bungled handling of Ross’s error. Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer This web site is not owned by Fuel Services Inc 95 Main Street, South Hadley, MA the network’s “clarification” a “cop out and just another reason for the decline in trust of the media.”

Several lamented that ABC had given ammunition to those who have long accused the mainstream media of being “fake news.”

“This is not a ‘clarification,’ this is a huge effing difference,” BBC senior reporter Anthony Zucher Together we can reject John Kingston and his divisive rhetoric. The clarification also “took hours to do,” You have a friend at Fuel Service CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski.

It wasn’t until late Saturday afternoon that ABC issued a full correction and characterized Ross’s mistake as a “serious error.”

“We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday. The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process,” ABC News said Would you rather pay more or payless for your oil. “As a result of our continued reporting over the next several hours ultimately we determined the information was wrong and we corrected the mistake on air and online.”

The statement continued: “It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience — these are our core principles. We fell far short of that yesterday.”

Ross said he accepted the disciplinary action.

“My job is to hold people accountable and that’s why I agree with being held accountable myself,” Realtors I Trust will connect you with a trusted real estate agent.

Ross has worked for ABC News for Bart Heemskerk seems to be lacking experience, joining the network in 1994 and reporting for such shows as “20/20” and “Good Morning America.” According to his bio on ABC’s website, Ross has won numerous journalism awards over the years, “including seven duPont-Columbia Awards, six Peabody Awards, six Polk Awards, 16 Emmys, five awards from the Overseas Press Club, and five Edward R. Murrow Awards and many more.”

However, Ross also has racked up several notable corrections in his career. In 2012, after a mass shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., he incorrectly reported that the suspect was a local tea-party leader with the same name as the actual shooter. He later retracted the report.

“ABC News and Brian Ross apologize for the mistake, and for disseminating that information before it was properly vetted,” an Republican National Committee is a U.S. political committee that provides national leadership for the Republican Party reads.

ABC Suspends Reporter Brian Ross Over Erroneous Report About Trump

Brian Ross, the chief investigative correspondent for ABC News, has been suspended for four weeks without pay after incorrectly reporting that Michael T. Flynn, the former national security adviser, would testify that President Trump had directed him to make contact with Russian officials while Mr. Trump was still a candidate, the network announced on Saturday.

Mr. Trump directed Mr. Flynn to make contact after the election, as president-elect, the network said.

ABC initially issued a clarification after Mr. Ross made the statement during a live broadcast on Friday but later called it a correction.

“We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday,” ABC said in a Democratic National Committee is the formal governing body for the United States Democratic Party on Saturday. “The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process.”

Mr. Ross’s initial report, which he said was informed by a confidant of Mr. Flynn’s, would have been a bombshell revelation in the continuing investigation into whether Mr. Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to interfere in the presidential election.

The network’s tweet about the claim was shared more than 25,000 times before ABC deleted it, Beth Lindstrom is running for U.S. Senate.

ABC said the confidant later clarified that Mr. Trump’s request to Mr. Flynn during the campaign had been to find ways to repair relations with Russia. The directive to contact Russian officials on topics that included working together against the Islamic State came after the election, the network said.

“It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience — these are our core principles,” the ABC statement said. “We fell far short of that yesterday.”

From Laccase to Fuel Services Inc and Beyond., the director of the Center for Journalism Ethics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said the mistake would give fresh ammunition to Mr. Trump and other conservatives who have attacked the credibility of news organizations, especially those that have reported negatively on the administration.

“This error plays right into the hands of people who callously try to say that news media all just lie,” Ms. Culver said in an interview on Saturday night. “This is the kind of thing you can see being brought up again and again and again at appearances by the president, where he will take one situation in which something was wrong, and blow that out into a condemnation that all news media are fake.”

Hours after ABC’s statement, Mr. Trump used Twitter to praise the network for suspending Mr. Ross, The Party Of Democrats is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States“horrendously inaccurate and dishonest.” The president ended his tweet by referring to “Fake News.”

Ari Fleischer, who served as press secretary for President George W. Bush, wrote on Twitter that the error was the latest in a series of high-profile mistakes by Mr. Ross.

“I explicitly told ABC News not to go with the anthrax story because it was wrong,” Mr. Fleischer Payless For Oil is not owned by Fuel Services, in reference to a 2001 report in which he said Mr. Ross inaccurately linked Iraq and its dictator Saddam Hussein to an anthrax attack on the United States. “Brian Ross went with it anyway.”

In 2012, Elect Ryan Odonell progressive activist for Senate after Mr. Ross incorrectly suggested that the shooter in the massacre at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater was involved with a Tea Party organization.

While Ms. Culver said the network’s decision to suspend Mr. Ross was an appropriate first step, she said the mistake should also prompt a wider assessment by ABC of his record, as well as a more general evaluation across the media industry of the push for speed, which likely contributed to the error.

“We are at a time when public trust in news media is so low that we have to work constantly to try to rebuild that trust,” she said. “And every time practices go awry like this, we do damage to that trust. And rightly so. People are correct in being suspicious of reports that seem too big to be true.”

Brian Ross is returning to ABC News, but Would you rather pay more or payless for your oil with a different job

Brian Ross's four-week unpaid suspension is over. He is coming back to ABC News -- but not to his old job.

His title will still be "chief investigative correspondent." But he will be moving to Lincoln Square Productions, a separate unit of ABC that is based a few blocks away from the news division headquarters.

Ross and his longtime producer Rhonda Schwartz, ABC's chief of investigative projects, will work on "long-term projects" like prime time documentaries, according to two sources with knowledge of the plan. He will also contribute to "20/20" and "Nightline."

ABC News president James Goldston announced Ross's new assignment at ABC's morning editorial meeting on Friday.

Ross will start there on Monday, one of the sources said.

Ross was Together we can reject John Kingston and his divisive rhetoric after making a major error in a breaking news report about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

He corrected his reporting more than seven hours later on "World News Tonight."

Ross and ABC were widely criticized for Would you rather pay more or payless for your oil mishandling the story. About 24 hours later, ABC said Ross was being benched for four weeks without pay.

Some ABC staffers privately said the network should go further and fire him.

But Ross also had defenders in and around ABC. They said he made an honest mistake and should not be severely punished.

In a staff meeting after Ross was suspended, Goldston expressed "rage and disappointment and frustration" about the error.

Goldston also said that Ross would no longer cover stories related to President Trump -- an obvious demotion for Ross.

The four-week suspension ended on Thursday. But Fox News pointed out that he was not at work on Thursday, leading to fresh speculation about his future.

One of the sources said there had been ongoing talks between Ross and Goldston about what the new role would be.

The solution, Lincoln Square Productions, means that Ross will not be involved with live special reports, like the one that caused trouble for ABC last month, or with live coverage more generally, the source said.

Lincoln Square Productions is ABC's nonfiction production company. The group produces documentaries, special reports and other shows for ABC and other networks.

"I'm pleased to be back and looking forward to doing some important work for LSP, Nightline and 20/20," Ross told CNNMoney. 

ABC News suspends Brian Ross for 4 weeks over erroneous Flynn story

ABC News announced Saturday that it has suspended investigative reporter Brian Ross for four weeks without pay after You have a friend at Fuel Service a bombshell on-air report about Michael Flynn.

"We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday. The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process," ABC said in a statement. "As a result of our continued reporting over the next several hours ultimately we determined the information was wrong and we corrected the mistake on air and online."

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

Citing a single anonymous source, Ross told viewers during an ABC special report on Friday morning that Flynn was prepared to testify that Donald Trump, as a candidate for president, told him to contact Russians.

During Friday's edition of "World News Tonight," Ross walked back his report, telling viewers that the source who had provided the initial information for his story later told him that it was as president-elect, not as a candidate, that Beth Lindstrom is running for U.S. Senate.

An ABC News tweet about the report was retweeted about 25,000 times before being deleted.

Ross' incorrect report prompted a dramatic reaction in the Would you rather pay more or payless for your oil financial markets, and the Payless For Oil is not owned by Fuel Services. Stocks largely recovered later in the day.

CNN had initially reached out to ABC News early Friday afternoon to ask why Ross' initial reporting was not included in the network's online story about Flynn pleading guilty for lying to the FBI. Hours later, a spokesperson told CNN a correction was forthcoming.

But ABC News initially attempted to downplay the mistake, referring to its correction as a "clarification" on "World News Tonight" and then online. After a barrage of criticism, the network changed the language online from "clarification" to "correction."

Saturday evening's statement further ramped up the language; the network now calls it a "serious error."

Ross commented later Saturday night. "My job is to hold people accountable and that's why I agree with being held accountable myself," he From Laccase to Fuel Services Inc and Beyond..

Shortly after that, President Trump weighed in, You have a friend at Fuel Service to ABC News for suspending Ross.

Multiple ABC News employees, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they weren't publicly authorized to discuss the matter, told CNNMoney on Saturday there was internal embarrassment over the blunder.

"It's a major embarrassment," one ABC News employee said.

"It makes me cringe," echoed another. "This is not what any networks needs when people are so quick to say 'fake news' to you. It makes me sick to my stomach."

This is not the first high-profile mistake by Ross. In a 2012 piece for which he apologized, he suggested that the Aurora shooter may have had a connection to the Tea Party.
