On "The View" Monday, Joy Behar and her fellow co-hosts were forced to apologize for the ecstatic celebration they led on the show Friday of a false report by ABC News that has since been "corrected."
"On Friday's show, apparently, I was guilty of 'premature evaluation,'" said Behar (video below).
As the Daily Wire reported, the hosts and audience of "The View" shared a celebratory moment after Behar read a report by ABC News' Brian Ross alleging incorrectly that Donald Trump "as a candidate" directed Michael Flynn to reach out to the Russians. Behar was so thrilled about the moment that she tweeted a GIF of herself celebrating, with the message: "Christmas came early. Thank you, Santa!"
As ABC News was forced to admit in a "clarification" and then a full "correction," Ross got a significant detail wrong: Trump reportedly asked Flynn to reach out to the Russians as president-elect, not as a candidate — throwing yet another a wrench in the left-leaning media's "collusion" narrative.
