ABC News Suspends Correspondent for Identifying Himself as a “Socialist” in Project Veritas Video

Published

on

According to Fox News, ABC News suspended long-time Washington correspondent David Wright for some of the comments he made in a video captured by Project Veritas.

Wright was punished after ABC News leadership reviewed footage in which Wright identified himself as a “socialist” and apparently criticized the network for the way it covers 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 commented in the video, which also had an ABC News producer president.

“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 expanded upon his political views. “I would consider myself a socialist, like I think there should be national health insurance,” he remarked. “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.”

According to Project Veritas, this video was filmed in New Hampshire during ABC’s coverage of the primaries. Wright also called President Trump by calling him “a d—” while also griping about how Trump is sometimes not given “credit for what things he does do.”

Fox News found out through an ABC News representative that Wright would be assigned to different functions after his suspension is served.

“Any action that damages our reputation for fairness and impartiality or gives the appearance of compromising it harms ABC News and the individuals involved,” the representative said. “David Wright has been suspended, and to avoid any possible appearance of bias, he will be reassigned away from political coverage when he returns.”

An ABC insider claimed that Wright had been tricked into making his comments on camera.

“Wright and the producer didn’t know who they were talking to. Didn’t know they were being recorded,” the insider stated. “The person introduced himself as a documentary filmmaker and didn’t say he was recording.”

The socialist controversy comes at a time when self-described “Democratic Socialist” Bernie Sanders is surging in the polls.

On Tuesday, Project Veritas’ founder James O’Keefe put out a teaser on the ABC News footage.

“Not long ago we exposed the #EpsteinCoverup within #ABC. Tomorrow, @Project_Veritas will expose ABCNews’ agenda to mislead voters and push their own narratives,” he wrote. “You aren’t going to want to miss it.”

 

Project Veritas has built a strong reputation as a whistleblower that has exposed politicians, news producers, and members of political non-profits making damning statements while not knowing that they were being recorded.
