In this report, the Brian Ross ABC News report about the Michael Flynn plea deal was totally bogus. It was fake news at its finest. Mr. Ross has been suspended and ABC news has had to correct the news item as well as make apologies. That may not be enough. The Stock Market took a plunge after this report.
The president noted it and told stock shareholders to hold ABC News accountable. Is this something that can be done? There could be a good class action suit buried in this scandal. ABC News may be a lot more careful, not to mention the Special Counsel team.
As Written By Thomas Lifson for the American Thinker:
People lost money thanks to Brian Ross moving the market with his false reporting. He’s been suspended, but will we see lawsuits against him and ABC on behalf of investors who lost money?
Update: as this was being published, President Trump just recommended they do so — on Twitter (of course):
People who lost money when the Stock Market went down 350 points based on the False and Dishonest reporting of Brian Ross of @ABC News (he has been suspended), should consider hiring a lawyer and suing ABC for the damages this bad reporting has caused – many millions of dollars!

This was not just any story. The Dow Jones noticed immediately, dropping 300 points following the time this story…….
