Share U.S. Kellyanne Conway Donald Trump Russia Probe Kellyanne Conway has said she would fire ABC correspondent Brian Ross over his erroneous report on the Russia probe if she were his boss—conveniently forgetting or choosing not to mention her own well-publicized errors. The counselor to President Donald Trump made the comments while appearing on Fox Business Network, during which she discussed Ross mistakenly claiming former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn would testify that Trump told him to contact Russian officials prior to his election. “If Brian Ross worked for me, it would not be four weeks of unpaid suspension for a guy making seven figures to lie on the air. It would be complete termination,” Conway said on Monday.

She also claimed the network had not corrected the story quickly enough. In a statement on the matter, ABC said on Saturday: “We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday.” “The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process,” it added. In suggesting Ross should be fired for his error, Conway appeared to have forgotten some of her own lapses, including arguing the case for “alternative facts”; suggesting mistakenly that there had been a terrible massacre in “Bowling Green”; and telling reporters there were microwaves that could turn into cameras. Indeed, for a brief period following several well-publicized gaffes, Conway appeared to take a break from on-camera appearances—although she has resumed her commentator position of late. For his part, Trump has also hit out at ABC News over the erroneous report, tweeting about the matter on Saturday. Congratulations to @ABC News for suspending Brian Ross for his horrendously inaccurate and dishonest report on the Russia, Russia, Russia Witch Hunt. More Networks and
