‘The Truth Suffers’

‘The Truth Suffers’: New Project Veritas Video Shows Since-Suspended ABC News Correspondent Alleging Network Has Trump Bias

 

BY: Shelby Talcott

 

A new Project Veritas video shows an ABC News correspondent bashing the network and accusing higher-ups of intentionally failing to report properly on President Donald Trump.

 

Wednesday’s newest video shows correspondent David Wright, who has since been suspended from ABC News, talking about how “voters are poorly informed” in part because of the network’s purported refusal to cover Trump appropriately. He alleges that the network carefully crafts its reporting to fit a certain narrative, particularly around Trump.

 

“I feel terrible about it,” Wright can be seen saying in the video. “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. And so, it’s like there’s no upside in – our bosses don’t see any upside – in doing the job that we’re supposed to do, which is to speak truth to power and hold people to account.”

WATCH:

 

 

Wright added that ABC News fails to “hold [Trump] to account” while simultaneously not giving “him credit for the things he does do.” The correspondent alleged that ABC News is only “interested in three things” in its daily reporting on the president.

 

“We’re interested in the outrage of the day, the investigation and of the palace intrigue of who’s backstabbing whom. Beyond that, we don’t really cover the guy,” Wright said, adding that the network has become “a profit” and “promotion center.”

 

“And promotion of the company and also promotion of individuals within the company, as opposed to the kind of dedication to the story and a commitment to telling stories that we need to tell that are maybe hard to tell,” he continued.

 

Wright considers himself a socialist, a point that he happily noted during the video. ABC News producer Andy Fies also makes an appearance in the Project Veritas video.

 

Fies can be seen saying that voters “need to cross the Hudson [River]” to see why people support the president. He adds that ABC News doesn’t “understand voters” and Wright agrees, saying that the network isn’t “terribly interested” in them.

“It used to be better,” Wright says.

 

ABC News did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller. (RELATED: ABC And CBS Remain Silent On Allegedly Colluding To Fire The Wrong Whistleblower)

Project Veritas, a conservative watchdog group, has exposed numerous networks in the past or tried to. In 2019, the group reported that ABC Newsallegedly killed a story about accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

LouD cleverly said, "Donald Trump is so far from the truth he couldn't see it throught Hubbel telescope."

 

Donald Trump and his low IQ cult members don't even know what the Hubble telescope is.

jfpinlvn:   It is what liberals use to study thr pseudo-science of astrology.

 

That isn't something liberals care about, but Nancy Reagan sure did. Remember this? 🙂

 

 

 

Joan Ceciel Quigley (April 10, 1927 – October 23, 2014), of San Francisco, California, was an astrologer best known for her astrological advice to the Reagan White House in the 1980s. Quigley was born in Kansas City, Missouri.

She was called on by First Lady Nancy Reagan in 1981 after John Hinckley's attempted assassination of the president, and stayed on as the White House astrologer in secret until being outed in 1988 by ousted former chief of staff Donald Regan.

Is that the system that has to pay state subsidies to the farmers they put out of business with their trade policies?  The one with a 13% drop in the market? Oh yeah, it is.

The swine flu in China are helping our farmer`s  hog  futures go through the roof. Ironic that good news for our farmers is bad news for the Democrats.

All this winning...  I am so tired of all this winning.  It's time for a vacation and the price of diesel fuel is lower than its been in a while.  I will take that as an omen...

 

Thank you President Trump for your leadership on the current agenda and direction of our great country.  4 MORE YEARS!

 

Have the dimms learned nothing?

Still at it. The price of oil dropped due to lack of demand world wide due  to the economy tanking. You used to tell us about your 401K. How is that doing this week. One good vacation spot right now is China. Things are cheap. NCA will have some cheap areas to visit shortly. I was there last week and it is really nice. All this wining sure is killing a lot of people, and destroying the economy. Trump in action, and the experts proved correct again.

China? Isn't that the country which is buying up farms in Brazil so they won't have to buy American pork or beans? Oh yeah, it is.

Anyone who incredibly believes Fox is a news network, as opposed to the Trump Propaganda Network, is living proof of my argument. Thank You for confirming Trump Supporters reside in an alternate reality bubble where facts and the truth do not exist.

It's a national tragedy that millions of Americans live in the alternate reality of a  FOX bubble, which is Joseph Goebbels style propaganda. They incredibly believe Fox is a news network, as opposed to Trump's propaganda arm.

 

This is why America is so badly divided. On one side you have intelligent people who read and watch real news, and on the other side, you have very gullible, unedicated people who don't understand they are victims of propaganda 24/7.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Using one of the comments from the link you posted and it disproves your distorted conclusion. "Just because a state have the most educated people doesn`t mean they have the best educated"     Large populated states naturally have more colleges and university and are permeated with liberal professors. (which many considered to produced a brainwashed graduate)

Here are the main points of who make up the far right Trump enablers per experts who have studded the subject. Mostly white, poor, uneducated, easy to lead. Trump supporters lead an area to the lowest levels in the most needed sections to have a top ranking State. In Pa. they always said you have Phila, Pitt, Harrisburg, NE Pa., and the rest of the State is AL. More KKK in the rest of the area than in AL. The far right drags down the US as its one and only goal is to hurt people.

Certainly seems hypocritical if this project does not also question fox news over it's overt effort to distort the truth, and just flat out lie...all in the effort to show support for trump and his lies!

It's absolutely pathetic and hypocritical. when someone from Trump World complains about the truth. They offer 100%, undying support to a PATHOLOGICAL LIAR in the White House.

That's my take on this. It's pretty unrealistic to enthusiastically support a serial liar and then complain about someone not telling the truth. Irony is dead.
