ABC News Suspends Reporter Over Project Veritas Expose On Media Bias

ABC News has suspended one of its top reporters involved in a Project Veritas video released Wednesday that the group’s founder James O’Keefe says is clear bias in main stream media outlets.

Project Veritas, a conservative watchdog group, will release the full video Wednesday exposing what they say is bias at ABC News, founder James O’Keefe tweeted.

David Wright, a veteran reporter with ABC’s top news shows, was suspended Tuesday.  Wright worked with “World News Tonight,” “Good Morning America” and “Nightline,” according to reports. 

In the video Wright is talking but doesn’t realize he is being filmed by Project Veritas’ hidden camera.

“I don’t think we’re terribly interested in voters,” said Wright.

“We don’t hold him to account,” said Wright, apparently referring to President Donald Trump, and “we also don’t give him credit for what things he does do.”

Project Veritas said the video was from the New Hampshire primary. The person filming Wright asks if he’s “a Democratic socialist,” and Wright replies, “Oh, ya, like more than that, I consider myself a socialist.”
