(Tea Party 247) – David Wright, Senior ABC News correspondent has accused his own network of not giving President Donald Trump “credit” for his notable accomplishments as well as revealed he is a “socialist” in an explosive new video from Project Veritas.
“I feel terrible about it,” Wright says of his network’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 explosive video, Wright claims that the media is not holding President Donald Trump to account, then admits that reporters don’t give POTUS due “credit.”
“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.
Well, we all know that’s true.
Later on, when Wright is asked about his own political ideology, he declares he sees himself as a full-blown socialist rather than a “democratic 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.”
In the conclusion of the video, Wright says that the establishment media would rather cover the election as a “horse race” rather than something that involves issues that matter to the American voters.
“I don’t think we’re terribly interested in voters,” he admits.
“In addition to the candidate of the week, we need the story to move on,” Wright explains. “We’re happy to have Buttigieg be the story last week and we’re happy to have Klobuchar as a new subject this week, and then when we’re tired of her we’ll be delighted if Elizabeth Warren kicks ass in Nevada because then we have something new to talk about.”
“We’re all guilty of the same thing,” Wright continues.” I think that all of the big news organizations… ABC, CBS, NBC.”
“We recognize that we’re dinosaurs and we’re in danger of dying,” he adds.
Unfortunately for Wright, his raw honesty comes at a big price.
The Washington Post reported that Wright has been suspended “for unguarded remarks he made in a video by operatives of Project Veritas.”
ABC News said in a statement to Project Veritas, “Any action that damages our reputation for fairness and impartiality or gives the appearance of compromising it harms ABC News and the individuals involved. David Wright has been suspended, and to avoid any possible appearance of bias, he will be reassigned away from political coverage when he returns.”
