(RightWing.org) – According to a new Project Veritas revelation, David Wright, a senior correspondent at ABC News, described himself as a socialist during an “off the record” conversation covertly taped at a hotel bar.

As a result, ABC has suspended Wright after that statement and for his harsh critique of major news networks. He called out MSM networks for prioritizing viewership numbers and advertisement engagement levels over providing the public with accurate information. Wright also complained that the media “can’t figure out how to challenge” President Trump.
A spokesperson for ABC justified Wright’s suspension by saying actions that damage the news organization’s credibility and reputation can’t go unanswered. While Wright hasn’t been fired, he won’t be assigned to political coverage when he returns to ABC News.
So much for Freedom of the Press!
