If there ever was a time when ABC’s Joy Behar jumped to conclusions, it is certainly now. One of ‘The View’ co-hosts was forced to apologize and retract a story regarding President Trump and ‘evidence’ of him colluding with Russia in light of the 2016 presidential election.
Last week, ABC’s Brian Ross released a story, stating that Robert Mueller busted Trump on communicating with Russia back when he was still running for president.
“[Flynn is prepared to testify, we are told by a confidante, against President Trump, against members of the Trump family, and others in the White House,” Ross claimed on the air on Friday. “He is prepared to testify that President Trump, as a candidate Donald Trump, ordered him to make contact with the Russians, which contradicts all that Donald Trump has said at this point.”
Ross was actually horribly wrong in his statement since it was proven Trump spoke with Russia after he won the election, which points to no law violation or a cause for suspicion. Here is how Ross tried to mend the situation:
Ross’ narrative ultimately cost investors millions of dollars, while the stock market faced a 350 point drop on Friday.
Driven by Ross’ rhetoric, Joy Behar took the train going nowhere as well and showed up on The View ‘s latest episode proudly bragging about having caught Trump right in the act.
Here’s the video moment if you missed it Friday:
It wasn’t too long that many pointed to Behar’s obvious delusion as far as transparency is concerned, forcing her to apologize to the public for making assumptions.
“On Friday’s show, apparently I was guilty of premature evaluation. I hear they have a pill for that,” she seemed aloof, according to Fox News.
Shortly after, ABC News said the report “had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process.”
“It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience,” the statement continued. “These are our core principles. We fell far short of that yesterday.”
“People are slamming this as fake news, I think it’s a mistake,” Behar added.
“I will say that fake news and what we did on Friday, that’s what I was being accused of being a part of. I don’t want to sit on a show where I feel like we’re giving fake news or acting irresponsibly.” McCain said.
It is only natural not to let the left get away with stories of this sort, especially since it puts America’s integrity into question.
