Project Veritas Strikes Again, Forces Suspension of ABC News Correspondent

The mainstream has again maligned themselves.

Given the wide berth of “news” options that we can find in this new, digital world, it behooves us to have people like Project Veritas around.

Project Veritas is an independent investigative journalism outfit that specializes in keeping tabs on our runaway mainstream media.  They employ the sort of tactics that you’d expect from a B-movie P.I., allowing We The People to listen in on some of the world’s most powerful political operatives at their most candid.

Their latest investigation targeted longtime ABC News correspondent David Wright with a hidden camera.

“I feel terrible about it,” Wright says of ABC’s coverage of the presidential election. “I feel that the truth suffers, the voters are poorly informed and people have the opportunity to tune into whatever they want to hear.”

“It’s like there’s no upside in, 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,” he adds.

In another part of the video, Wright claims that the media doesn’t hold President Donald Trump to account, and then admits that reporters don’t give the president “credit” where it’s due. “I think, some of that at least in the place that I work and places like it, is that with Trump, we’re interested in three things: we’re interested in the outrage of the day, the investigation, and of the palace intrigue of who’s backstabbing who,” he says.

And there’s more…

Later in the footage, Wright is asked about his political ideology, to which he says that he not only sees himself as a Democrat-socialist, but a full-blown socialist. “I think there should be national health insurance,” Wright argues. “I’m totally fine with reining in corporations, I think there are too many billionaires, and I think that there’s a wealth gap. That’s a problem.”

The video concluded with Wright saying that the establishment media is more interested in covering the election as a “horse race” than a contest about issues important to voters. “I don’t think we’re terribly interested in voters,” he concedes.

This will undoubtedly lend ever more credence to President Trump’s claims that the mainstream media is heavily biased against him, and the 2020 election could very well find a focus in “fake news” as a result.

Wright was immediately suspended by ABC in the wake of the Project Veritas report.
