From a report at the link below:
So, where’s veteran ABC News reporter Brian Ross? The embattled reporter who went off half-cocked in December over a Trump-Russia story has not returned to work.
Earlier last month, Ross reported that Michael Flynn, who later became Donald Trumps’ short-lived national security adviser, was instructed to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 campaign.
It was actually after Trump won the election and was part of your typical laying of a diplomatic groundwork game that’s part of every transition for an incoming administration.
The news tanked the markets by 350 points on December 1 as a result. It was a total disaster.
Actually, Brian Ross should return to work later thi week when his four-week unpaid suspension is over. If Ross does return he will no longer be covering Trump.
This isn’t the first foul-up for Brian Ross. He has done this before. In 2012, after the tragic Aurora Theater shooting in Colorado, Ross said that the shooter, James Holmes, might be a member of the Tea Party. That was not accurate either. Those are the most recent flubs. He’s stepped on quite a few rakes throughout his career.
As of today, his suspension is over. So, where is he? Well, ABC News is mum on the subject about Ross returning to ABC News.
There was a time when Brian Ross got away with sloppy reporting and bending the news to suit the left-wing agenda. This time he, it appears, he didn’t get away with it.
