ABC News Suspends Reporter Over Comments Captured in New Project Veritas Video

Fox News reports ABC News has suspended veteran Washington correspondent David Wright for remarks he made that were captured on video by Project Veritas.

Wright was disciplined after higher-ups at ABC News reviewed footage in which Wright describes himself as a “socialist” and appears to criticize the network for the way in which it chooses to present the news.

“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.”

NEW From @Project_Veritas:
ABC correspondent David Wright says “I’d consider myself a socialist”, admits to spiking stories, calls voters “poorly informed” and says the network doesn’t “give Trump credit for what things he does do”
