The veteran reporter expounded at length on his political views. “I would consider myself a socialist, like I think there should be national health insurance,” he said. “I’m totally fine with reining in corporations, I think they’re too many billionaires, and I think there’s a wealth gap – that’s a problem.”
In the hidden video that Project Veritas said was filmed in New Hampshire during its primary’s coverage, Wright, 56, also called President Trump “a d—” while simultaneously complaining that Trump is sometimes not given “credit for what things he does do.”
Wright did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment. A rep for ABC News told Fox News he would be reassigned after serving his suspension.
“Any action that damages our reputation for fairness and impartiality or gives the appearance of compromising it harms ABC News and the individuals involved,” the rep said. “David Wright has been suspended, and to avoid any possible appearance of bias, he will be reassigned away from political coverage when he returns.”
Does the above spokesman, who issued the same statement to the Daily Caller in response to Wright being caught by one of O’Keefe’s hidden cameras, know that he works for the network that employs Clinton flack George Stephanopoulos, and recently had a former ABC employee fired at CBS for allegedly blowing the whistle on Jeffrey Epstein?
Elsewhere, Twitchy spots the Daily Beast’s Will Sommer tweeting, “ABC’s suspension of David Wright looks ridiculous now that the [James O’Keefe] video he got suspended for is out. Wright makes the same critiques of the broadcast news business that you’d hear in any journalism class.”
Including pretending to be objective when you’ve got a clear ideological agenda, apparently.
