Brian Ross to quit ABC News

New York [USA], July 3 (ANI): Investigative journalists Brian Ross and Rhonda Schwartz announced their decision to quit ABC News.
This comes over six months after Ross was suspended for an error related to United States President Donald Trump's former national security advisor, Micheal Flynn.
"It's time to say good-bye after 24 years at ABC News, an organization that has meant so much to us.  While Rhonda Schwartz and I are signing off from ABC News, we are hardly leaving investigative journalism.  There is much more to do," Ross tweeted.

Last year, Ross, during a live "special report", had reported that Flynn would testify that Trump had ordered him to make contact with Russians about foreign policy while Trump was still a candidate.
Later in the day, ABC News issued a "clarification" to Ross' report, saying that Trump's alleged directive came post he was elected president.
Ross himself appeared on 'World News Tonight' several hours after the initial report to clarify his error.
The report spread quickly before it was corrected, and stocks plunged shortly after it was released on air.
After about 24 hours, ABC said Ross was getting suspended for four weeks without pay.
In January this year, Ross had returned to Ross to ABC News. (ANI)
