ABC’s Fake News Causes Stock Market to Plunge











Even in an era where mainstream media fake news has become the norm, it’s a relative rarity to see a major press organization like ABC News indulge in the sort of reckless reporting that we saw on Friday. Yes, CNN, NBC, the New York Times, and the rest of them let their abject bias color their Trump coverage and yes, they quote endlessly from unnamed, suspicious sources, but it’s not all that often that they just blatantly publish fact-free nonsense.

But that’s exactly what they did last week when reporter Brian Ross gave the network his “insider knowledge” about Michael Flynn and his grand jury testimony. It was a stunning example of media irresponsibility, and it even had tangible effects on the stock market, which plunged 350 points in the wake of the report.

In the morning, based on Ross’s reporting, ABC News said that, as a CANDIDATE, Donald Trump ordered Flynn to make contact with the Russians. If this reporting had been accurate, it would have been the bombshell of the day, overshadowing even the basic (true) news that Flynn had pled guilty to lying to the FBI and that he was prepared to testify that he was ordered to make contact with Russian government officials as part of the transition effort. It would have been the clearest piece of hard evidence yet that the BIG STORY – that the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow in an effort to win the election – actually had some merit to it.

Only problem? It wasn’t true.

By the evening’s “World News Tonight” broadcast, ABC News was forced to issue a correction to their illegitimate bombshell, bringing their reporting back in line with everyone else’s – that Flynn had only contacted Russian officials as a member of the transition team, AFTER Trump had already been elected president.

“A clarification tonight on something one of Flynn’s confidants told us and we reported earlier today,” Ross said Friday evening. “He said the president had asked Flynn to contact Russia during the campaign. He’s now clarifying that saying, according to Flynn, candidate Trump asked him during the campaign to find ways to repair relations with Russia and other world hot spots. And then after the election, the president-elect asked him to contact Russia on issues including working together to fight ISIS.”

The next day, after a barrage of angry criticism, ABC News issued a statement apologizing for the report and confirming that Ross would be punished for his sorry journalism.

“We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday,” the company wrote. The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process. As a result of our continued reporting over the next several hours ultimately we determined the information was wrong and we corrected the mistake on air and online.

“It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience –- these are our core principles,” ABC continued. “We fell far short of that yesterday. Effective immediately, Brian Ross will be suspended for four weeks without pay.”

ABC News should be commended for taking strong steps to correct for this error, but it’s one that would have never happened in the first place if the press were more concerned about accurate journalism than they are about their dual interests of generating ratings and destroying President Trump. They can play whack-a-mole with every false report, losing more viewer trust every time, or they can re-evaluate their entire approach to covering this presidency.

News sourced from The New York Times and Washington Post are usually reliable. To error is human, therefore anyone can make a mistake, but reliable sources will admit a mistake when made, unlike our Liar in Chief POTUS that NEVER admits a mistake or that he was wrong about something.

          Everyone forgets about the lies from the Clinton through Obama . If the media had treated them the way they treat Trump politics would have changed . Our biggest problem is the backstabbing that goes on in Congress from both parties instead of doing what is right for the country . The other thing is the media playing politics instead of presenting facts with something to back it up .

    President Trump is set to visit Salt Lake City, Utah on Monday to announce his plans to reduce the size of two national monuments in the state. Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante, both well over 1 million acres of federal public land, were designated as national monuments by Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Critics say that the protected land is too big and that the designation prevents ranchers or oil drillers from using the land’s natural resources.

            To be real honest with you. Up til the 80’s I was not too interested in politics. I was baptized in 1980 and I listened to the preacher rant and rave about any one who believes in abortion is not of God.. Well I was still dripping wet from being baptized, so I did the only right thing a Christian could do… I voted for Reagan… oh yuck… I think I threw up in mouth a little bit.. But maybe that was a good thing, because then I started listening to what they said. And I don’t take what they say as the gospel any more.
            What you say is greek to me and unless I get a website from you, it will remain greek.

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer took responsibility Sunday for a tweet that Trump sent the previous day, (Was he impersonating a president? Can we all say BS?) in which the president said for the first time that he knew his former security adviser, Michael Flynn, had lied to the FBI before he fired Flynn in February.
    The tweet caused an uproar in Washington because it implied Trump knew Flynn had committed a felony — lying to the FBI — when he told then-FBI director James Comey to go easy on Flynn the day after the firing.

            Why don’t you go back to LBJ and Nixon where our problems started . Nixon just like McCarthy were on the right track as to what was going down in politics. Under Reagan manufacturing started to slow down as there was no war . But under Clinton thousands of places locked the door and shut down . Millions lost jobs and benefits like health insurance -life insurance and many also lost some of their pensions if not all . that is what gave us the 2008 meltdown . Clinton and Bush made sure that Freddy and Fanny would survive while the banks a making millions of profits and none of the Banking CROCK were locked up . The HUMILIATION to the USA is our Congress and their lobbyist Friends . But you had no problems with Clinton – Bush and Obama who brought shame to the USA .

            Three Republican presidents in a row caused caused the great depression, the last being Hoover. It took FDR to save us, and create a wealthy, powerful nation. Every Republican since then, has used some kind evil device to tear down the “new deal”, with the exception of Eisenhower, I think.
            Nixon = HMO’s
            Reagan = Black Monday, worst “recession” since the great depression. Corporate farmer, S&L bankrupt, 42% tax cut rich, cut regulations, broke the unions, caught with hand in Social Security, Treason. Only way he saved his job statistic was he hired government workers.
            Clinton created jobs, cut the government size, raised taxes on rich.. and got a BJ
            Lil’ bush a total disaster in all categories, just about sank America.
            Obama rescued us from the disaster bush put us in and went on to set a the longest streak of job creation.

No one would hire people over the 50s and that is what bought on the 2008 housing loss . we still have foreclosures . People ran out of savings and walked away from their mortgage . Obama sure did a good lob of putting more people on Medicaid than to work ,plus wages were lover than before Clinton and today most jobs start with 10-13 dollars . Stores and malls are closing thanks to people Buying from the China import house Amazon and Wall mart as well as Harbor Freight .

What they should be investigating is the Russian tie to the Democrat party and the Clintons as well as all the foreign money from Communist countries as well as the Middle East .Then there is the tie of the Bilderberg Group and their money to the Democrat party .

            You did well with Reagan, but missed how he got to power by sabotaging negotiations by Carter with the Iranian government to free the hostages, with Bush making a deal with the Iranian leader to hold the hostages until Reagan was inaugurated, & then the related Iran/Contra scandal.

            Trump will be far worse than Hoover or any president we’ve ever had. If we still have a democracy by the time Trump is through, if we still have a unified nation by the time he’s through, if we still exist by the time he’s through, we should count ourselves lucky.

            The only thing the half honky did was get a lot of 30 hour per week jobs flipping burgers for people like these CNC operators and programmers, because they lost their good jobs to obamacare.

      The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed yesterday at a new record high of 24,290—the 64th record-setting close for the stock market under President Trump. This latest surge came as the market climbed more than 200 points to open trading yesterday morning, buoyed by news from over the weekend that Republican senators had voted to pass sweeping tax-reform legislation.

    This was part of the plan behind the dissemination of an intential lie by Obammunist propagandist Ross. The leftists know that there is nothing to the “Russian collusion” canard that was cooked up in the early morning of November 9, 2016 in order to steal back the election that The Drunken Lesbian Witch had just lost. They know too that they have no other shots in their locker beside violent revolution, which they also plan. Economic and social chaos is crucial to this, and collapsing the stock market that is booming under this President is essential to the plan. As their mentors Lenin and Goebbels both said, the worse it gets, the better for us.

      How can Hillary “steal back” something that was not hers to start with? See that statement
      “Steal back the election”. The media is brainwashing people in to thinking the presidency was somehow rightfully hers, and Trump stole it from her I call Bull Shit!! Anyone with 178 brain cells working knows NO CANDIDATE OWNED THE ELECTION. Isn’t that the whole point of an election? Something (the presidency) has no owner. So We The People vote on who can claim it.

            You think insults are the arguments employed by those who are in the wrong.

            I am convinced that lies are the arguments used by liberals who, of course, are in the wrong.

            There have been dozens of investigations of the voter rolls of various states and cities and these investigations have shown that hundreds of now-deceased people are still carried on the rolls of those states and cities. Some states have even refused to review their rolls to find bogus voters.

            As a liberal, you are, of course, easily brain-washed to think what you think. But you’re wrong. Invalid votes are routinely cast by the thousands nationwide.

            I know it’s hard to do, but totally dismiss AKLady. She and the rest of the democrats can’t or will not read our Constitution so none of them know that Article II of the US Constitution opens with: Each State shall appoint in such manner as the Legislature thereof may direct a number of Electors, equal to the whole number of senators and representatives to which the state may be entitled in the Congress. After several paragraphs with not once is a vote by the
            people mentioned. Not once is popular selection of the president suggested. It was not to shore up the popular vote but to determine which candidate would be awarded the electoral votes. Sorry I got off on the subject, but it would be good if you just blocked her.

          The popular vote is irrelevant and always has been.

          The rules for how the president is chosen are very clear, and the founding fathers specifically set up the electoral college to avoid having the popular vote choose a President.

          Arguing that Hillary won the popular vote is no different than trying to claim you are the winner of a game of Chess because you had more pieces left on the board when you were Checkmated.

            “The founding fathers established it in the Constitution as a compromise between election of the President by a vote in Congress and election of the President by a popular vote of qualified citizens….The electors are generally chosen by the candidate’s political party, but state laws vary on how the electors are selected and what their responsibilities are.” https://www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/about.html

          • rburch20

            Yes that is what the Electoral College is, and how it came to be. Do you have a point?

            You can argue it shouldn’t be done that way, but it’s the way all sides agreed to determine the winner long before this election started.

            Which means you can’t make any legitimate argument that Hillary won this election.

            To use another analogy, Hillary’s team had more offensive yards (votes) at the end of the Game, but Trump’s team scored more points(electoral votes)

        • dan

          So, what’s your point? The electoral college is the law of the land. The framers of the constitution were far smarter than you or any of our current politicians. Note also that voter fraud is endemic to the Democrat party. Case in point, John Kennedy stole the election from Richard Nixon in ’60 by buying W. Va and via Giancana in Chicago. If you subtract the fraudulent votes, Trump would win the popular vote. Would you like a little cheese with your whine?

          • AKLady

            Did you read the post I responded to?
            Maybe you should have.

            Trump’s popular vote claim has been repeatedly debunked.

            Nixon, unlike Trump, did not encourage Republicans to regard the country as locked in a permanent civil war, or to treat the incoming president as a usurper. John Kennedy, decorated war hero, had no need to steal anything from Nixon.
            Kennedy would have won the election even without Illinois. Historic fact.

            The accusations about that election were thoroughly investigated.

          • protn7

            I liked the good old days. Even flawed Nixon wanted Democracy in America to thrive. Trump’s every move is to crush the Democratic Party and Democracy itself. No president before him has refused to invite non-party members to White House parties. And no President before him has attacked the press and talked about taking away news networks FCC licenses.

          IF YOU ONLY HAD A BRAIN. WE HAVE BEEN ELECTING PRESIDENTS BY ‘ELECTORAL COLLEGE” FOR YEARS. OBAMA WON BY THE SAME WAY. POPULAR VOTE MEANS NOTHING DUE TOO PEOPLE LIKE ILLEGALS, VOTING IN OTHET STATES, ETC.

          • AKLady

            There are over 235,250,000 people of voting age in the United States.
            There are less than 11,300,000 illegals in the U.S.
            Do the math.

        • Robertfantelli Fantelli

          The electoral college was established so that the few highly populated states such as NY, CA and the like would not control the presidency.Thank you founding fathers for your insight.

          • AKLady

            States do not vote.
            People do.
            Oh, and by thw way, the number of Electors each state has is based on population size. Electors = Senators + Representatives.

            The illegal vote garbage has been put to rest reputedly

            No one knows how many unlawful immigrants are in the U.S.
            What makes you think the ESTIMATE you cite is more accurate?
            FAIR’s 2011 estimate was 12 million.
            So, in SIX years. that OPEN border only admitted another 5 million?
            Oh, and the majority no longer come from Central and South America, but originate from Asia and thw Pacific. They enter legally on employment visas.
            .
            Factually, the undocumented population has remained flat for over 8 years. The Trump Administration estimate is 11.3 million, indicating a decline took place under Obama.

          • Libs R Loons

            Truth be known, the number is actually around 40 million illegals. Nobody seems to include the over 6 million MUSLIM illegals that Obama and Holder snuck into our country under the radar.

            He never paid for the crimes. Because he was a Marxist democrap Kennedy, It was all covered up. He completely slid and never spent a day in jail. It’s called vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence. Also hit and run with injury, another felony. Crimes the rest of us would have spent years in prison for. Instead he spent 40 years in the senate, doing his best to ruin our republic, like all Democraps do.

    What has happened to this country’s number one line of information and warning system, the so called journalistic integrity of the investigative reporter and the freedom of the press, it seams to have gone on hiatus. Now it seams that they are taking their freedom of speech way to far, as they print what they want, when they want and stretch it all out of shape however they want, just to print any old thing that they want, no mater who it hurts or what the circumstances and penalty might fall, just as long as they get something out faster then the other guy. Never mind that it might hurt the country or jeopardize people’s lives and country’s prosperity, but to use it’s power of persuasion to try and maneuver the ruling of governments, should be a criminal offense and merit more then a mere suspension of a few weeks without paying a petty slap on the wrists, especially when you can think that, that little stroke of his pen cost some millions in lost revenue, scare the hell out of others and maligned your very President worry the rest, but anything to raise doubt and keep your little minion in line and thinking that they are being used by everyone but your manipulating. I hope that the retractions that these news companies have had to give lately makes people think that just maybe what they have been getting spoon feed to them is not totally true and that they should look at bigger picture and make their own conclusions of maters.

    So now the Trumpster and their supporters are blaming the need for stock market performance. Trump has done nothing but destroy our country and ideals since he has come into office. He’s going to make the middle class pay taxes on taxes and raise their taxes over time. He’s going to cost the US hundreds of billions of dollars to build a wall between the US and Mexico that all experts say will not work instead to addressing the real problem of illegal immigrants coming into the US. He’s destroying our national parks by allowing mining and deforestation to proceed. He’s supporting a child molester instead of telling him to take a hike. He’s also a sexual predator who should have never been elected. And to top it off, he promised to drain the swamp but the swamp has gotten deeper with more swamp monsters in the swamp. The current tax plan was developed by 7000 lobbyists. But what do exoect when most of his cabinet are former Goldman Sachs employees. This government is the most corrupt of all time.

There should be criminal penalties for making false statements in the press. If that were the case there wouldn’t be much news out there now as many of the press would be in prison.

    There’s more provable collusion with Russia by the obama and Clinton administration, but here we are still today still attempting to prove that President Trump some how collided with Russia and yet try as they may Muellers investigation still has no direct evidence or smoking gun pointing to such allegations. Muellers investigation has not only deviated into areas outside it’s intended scope, but the investigation itself has proven to be tainted by bias and an overwhelming
    desire to bring down President Trump, Mueller himself is comprised and should have recused himself from this investigation but has not done so on his own, it’s now up to the President and his supporters to bring an end to this investigation or witch hunt, everyday something new is leaked or becomes more apparent, showing just how biased and one sided this investigation has become, FBI agent quietly removed, fake news reports, not to mention how this special investigation was brought about (fake dossier, leaked by fired head of the FBI) what more do we need to happen or see occur before we put this witch hunt to bed. If the average citizen can look at this complete mess and conclude that based upon what we know and have seen, that this was nothing more than a red herring, another attempt at bringing down the rightful and elected President of the USA, then why is it so difficult for these damn politicians to come to the same findings and put a stop

    It came to me reading this that we often write our history based on the news reports of the time which means all this fake news could also end up in our future history books where generations from now our decedents will have no frame of reference to know what is accurate. If it wasn’t for President Trump’s “Fake News” campaign future generations might not know we have an issue with integrity within the world of Journalism. Do they even teach that in colleges any more? Journalistic integrity? I doubt it since there is less evidence of this daily.

    What has become the “norm” is Trump and members of his cult deciding what is and what is not “fake news”. For the record, the mainstream media does not make up news stories. Journalists and reporters are the truth seekers. They’re the people who give is all the opportunity to hold accountable our elected officials. The mainstream media is essential to the health of the republic. Democracy cannot exist without the press. The very idea, perpetuated by this child like president, of “fake news” is silly and juvenile. I present as a perfect exhibit the post directly below this one from one Miles E Drake. Who knows where he got his “information” , but the entire post is so ridiculous it’s almost funny.

    ABC/CNN/MSNBC/NYT … Ask yourself who owns these Propaganda Machines?
    Globalists( Illuminati, the Zionist, Jesuit and Luciferian globalists) are fighting Patriots,Christians, anyone who believes in America via Democratic Party(along with a few GOP traitor Rino’s). They use gullible Old,Young, & radical groups to carry out their Plan. Anywhere the Globalists can destroy national cultures, christianity, borders, language, economies, currencies, natural resources and basically, anything of value, they do so to create a cultural of chaos to capitalize on opportunism.
    War fills the pockets of Globalists who gut nations and bleed their economies of cash and shelter it in offshore accounts.
    Globalists are a very small group of people who are the principal stockholders in every national central bank throughout the world. Wake up America. wake up now.

    Well this is a good opourinity for a class action lawsuit against the fake news that caused the stock market to falter. You did not have to be a day trader to have been affected by this finically this also affected everyone that has a 401K they are based from different stocks and based on your selection it could have cost you a bunch, how many million people have a 401K if it cost all of you a $100.00; ABC would be on the hook for at least $100 million dollars plus legal fees which a very strong legal firm would be glad to handle. All of you connected people see what you can muster up on this!

    The majority of us who comment here know that ABC has no real “journalistic standards” or any dedication to telling the truth. If they ever did have any, their KGB overlords told them to abandon them in the 1960’s in order to manipulate public opinion against the Viet Nam conflict. If there is any Russian collusion, it is within the Democrat party and their propaganda machine, the misnamed “mainstream news media.”
