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.
White Student Government Leaders Resign from Their Positions Because of White Guilt
The President and the Vice President of the University of Connecticut’s Undergraduate Student Government recently stepped down from their posts.
And they did so because of white guilt.
VP Alex Ose stepped down last week, according to a report from The Daily Campus. She alluded to “the climate and incidents of racial injustice across the country and at the university.” But as Greg Piper of the College Fix noted she did so “without elaborating on what’s wrong at UConn (or why she can’t address the perceived problem as an elected official)”.
I feel that it is my duty to step down from my position to make space for BIPOC (black, indigineous and people of color) voices to truly rise and be heard. It is my responsibility to make space, not to create an echo.
Ose also called on the rest of the white members of the student government to resign. She challenged her white colleagues to think about the “intent” they have in holding leadership positions and consider making space for BIPC students.
President Joshua Crow wasn’t as radical when he resigned.
“It is important in this time to ensure that marginalized groups have the platforms they need,” he declared, according to The Daily Campus.
Funny enough, Piper pointed out that “Crow’s temporary replacement is … another white guy, Will Schad.”
None of what we see taking place at UConn is occurring in a vacuum. It’s all a part of the cultural revolution that has taken place since the death of George Floyd.
Since the Right has largely put up a feckless defense against the Left as of lately, such groveling to PC mobs will continue at breakneck speeds.
America needs a real opposition to these cultural radicals.
