Yes, ABC News handled things correctly
Those who feel that ABC News handled this correctly say this is how media is supposed to act when they make a mistake. They point out the network admitted the mistake on air and suspended the person responsible. They say that ABC News did not humiliate Ross nor try to cover up for him. Instead, they sent him out on air to correct things and apologize, and now he will receive his punishment. As people see it, a month from now, Ross will be back on the air with his dignity intact. They feel ABC News should be applauded for the classy way they handled this situation.
ABC good job for admitting y’all got the story wrong and taking action suspending BR. ?

This is the beauty of the responsible free press..it holds itself accountable, it corrects itself, it self polices..this is democracy as designed working

The difference…ABC admits and corrected the problem…FOX and 45 lie every day and double down when confronted…I have respect for people that admit that they are wrong!
