ABC's Wright suspended after video shows him admitting he's - 'socialist,' bashing Trump

Posted: Feb 26th, 2020 - 10:13 am

Network cites damage to 'our reputation for fairness and impartiality'

Veteran ABC News correspondent David Wright was suspended Wednesday after he was caught in a Project Veritas undercover sting declaring that he was a socialist and referring to President Trump as “this f**ing president.”

In a statement, an ABC spokesperson also said that Mr. Wright, who has worked for the network since 2000, would no longer cover political stories upon his return.

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

The latest Project Veritas video, part of its #Expose series on major news organizations, showed Mr. Wright on hidden-camera footage in New Hampshire for the Feb. 11 primary at what appeared to be a cocktail party, along with ABC producer Andy Fies.

Asked if he considered himself a “democratic socialist,” Mr. Wright replied, “Oh, yeah. More than that, I consider myself a socialist.”

“I think there should be national health insurance,” Mr. Wright said on the video. “I’m totally fine with reining in corporations. I think there are too many billionaires, and I think there’s a wealth gap. That’s a problem.”
