Brian Ross, whom old-school Twitchy readers will remember from falsely identifying the Aurora, Colo. movie theater shooter as a member of the Tea Party (same name, different guy), is reportedly leaving ABC News — finally — after being suspended for making a “serious error” in his reporting on Michael Flynn.

If you’ll remember, that serious error was accusing presidential candidate Donald Trump of ordering Michael Flynn to make contact the Russians; actually, he was President-elect Trump at the time, which is kind of an important difference.

The New York Post’s Page Six reports:

We hear that Ross on Monday announced he’s leaving the network. His longtime executive producer Rhonda Schwartz is also exiting. “The time has come to say good-bye,” said the duo in a letter to staff with an announcement by ABC News president James Goldston.

… They added: “While we are signing off from ABC News, we are hardly leaving investigative journalism. There is much more to do.”

Imagine what Ross can report now that he’s not with a mainstream news organization with a reputation it would like to maintain.

Nope. He was suspended without pay for four weeks and then told by his network he wouldn’t be covering President Trump anymore. Oops.
