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.” The veteran reporter expounded at length on his political views. “I would consider myself a socialist, like I think there should be national health insurance,” he said. “I’m totally fine with reining in corporations, I think they’re too many billionaires, and I think there’s a wealth gap – that’s a problem.” In the hidden video that Project Veritas said was filmed in New Hampshire during its primary’s coverage, Wright, 56, also called President Trump “a d—” while simultaneously complaining that Trump is sometimes not given “credit for what things he does do.”
Another member of the dominantly liberal mainstream media has been exposed for who and what he is; an extreme liberal (even self-described “socialist”), anti-Trump, agenda-driven activist who by day tries to pose as some unbiased, “fair” journalist just trying to report the news/facts. David Wright is a fraud, and the ONLY reason he’s getting his wrists slapped (hes not getting fired, just “reassigned”) is because he got caught on camera. Kudos to Project Veritas for catching this tool on video. For more on this story, click on the text above.
