Senior ABC Correspondent David Wright was caught on Hidden Camera by Project Veritas saying that he was a socialist and that his network neither holds President Trump to account nor gives him credit for what they do.
Wright, who reports for ABC’s news programs like “World News Tonight,” “Good Morning America” and “Nightline,” has been suspended and will not report on politics when he returns.
Some of his quotes, with a video below.
“Bosses Don’t See an Upside” for reporting news; “The Truth Suffers.”
“We Also Don’t Give Him [Trump] Credit for What Things He Does do…I Feel Terrible About it, I Feel That the Truth Suffers, the Voters Are Poorly Informed…Our Bosses Don’t See an Upside in Doing the Job We’re Supposed to do.”
“In Television, We Have Lost Any Sense of Context.”
“We Don’t Hold Him [Trump] to Account. We Also Don’t Give Him Credit for What Things He Does Do.”
Are You a Democrat Socialist? Wright: “Oh yeah. More than that I would consider myself a socialist; like I think there should be national health insurance. I’m totally fine with reigning in corporations, I think they’re too many billionaires, and I think there’s a wealth gap–that’s a problem.”
“You Can’t Watch ‘Good Morning America’ Without a Disney Princess or a Marvel Avenger Appearing.”
“We’re in This Awkward Moment…We Have This F**king President, and We Can’t Figure Out How to Challenge Him.”
To Andy Fies, ABC News Producer: “People in New York Are Constantly, I Think, Fascinated by, ‘How Can People Like Donald Trump?’…You Know, Well F**k! Cross the Hudson Now and Then, and Come Out and Spend Some Time, and You’ll Hear Why!”
