I have been looking for a link to contact the prejudicial, asinine, socialist excuse of a reporter. Any one know where or how?
You can bug him on Twitter: https://twitter.com/BrianRoss/
but you’ll have to keep your rant to 140 character bursts....
or not as the case may be...

Brian Ross, reporter for the Obama reelection team is an example of why journalists have little respect.
I have 2 words for him.
They fit the word limit nicely.
What did he do?
False Iraq-US anthrax scare reports Ross has been criticized by Glenn Greenwald and others for a series of stories which linked Iraq and the 2001 anthrax attacks in the United States. These reports were based upon anonymous "high level" sources and were both denied by the Administration and subsequently shown by other reports to be false. It is claimed that Ross unwittingly helped build support for the invasion of Iraq via his high profile erroneous reporting. Dan Froomkin asked on August 5, 2008 in the Washington Post "So who told ABC the powder looked Iraqi?"
The NY Sun reported that Ross was ordered by a federal judge to reveal his sources. In response, an ABC News spokesperson said that the organization was going to protect its sources.
Dennis Hastert corruption investigation On May 24, 2006, Ross reported on the lead story for ABC World News Tonight that the Justice Department was investigating Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, for possible connections to the Jack Abramoff corruption scandal. Both the Justice Department and Dennis Hastert issued denials, but Ross insisted the story was correct. Ross did say that the investigation may eventually "wash out and be nothing". Hastert was never approached by the Justice Department.
Howard Dean State Trooper Exposé Iowa native and former local newsman Brian Ross has been criticized for an expose that he reported on the eve of the Iowa caucus in which Dean was linked to a trooper who worked for him when he was Vermonts governor and had engaged in acts of domestic violencewhich Dean was unaware of when he wrote a character reference for the employee in a custody dispute.
Exposé on Toyota In a broadcast entitled "Expert: Electronic Design Flaw Linked to Runaway Toyotas" which aired the night before a Congressional Panel began investigating the issue of unintended acceleration in Toyota vehicles, Ross claimed that the problem was caused by a defect in the electronic system. Toyota pointed out that the expert used by Ross was paid by the defense attorneys, and the video footage by Ross showing a tachometer shooting from 1,000 to 6,200 RPM was staged because the vehicle was actually sitting in a parking lot with the transmission firmly in Park. Toyota has demanded a public retraction and formal apology from Ross and ABC News.
Bachmann presidential campaign incident On July 19, 2011, according to the presidential campaign of Michele Bachmann, when attempting to question Bachmann about her migraines, Ross "rushed toward" Bachmann and her staff and "disregarded repeated requests to stay back". According to Michael Crowley, a reporter for Time who witnessed the resulting intervention by Bachmann staffers, the staffers "pounced on [Ross], grabbing and pushing him multiple times with what looked [...] like unusual force. In fact, [Crowley had] never seen a reporter treated so roughly at a campaign event, especially not a presidential one." Ross said he'd only been treated like that before "mostly by Mafia people."
Aurora theater shootings On July 20, 2012, gunman James Holmes, 24, entered a theater in Aurora, Colorado, during a midnight showing of the new movie The Dark Knight Rises, killing 12 people and injuring another 59. Later that day, Brian Ross suggested on-air, without confirmed evidence, that a different James Holmes, whose name he found connected to a Colorado Tea Party group, might be the killer. Several media outlets called Ross out on his statement, with RealClearPolitics calling for his firing. ABC later retracted the report and apologized. The James Holmes that Ross had found is a 52-year-old former law enforcement officer and member of a Hispanic Tea Party group. This Holmes said in an interview with Breitbart.com that he had disconnected his phone because he was worried about his family due to the false report.
Some poor sapp is a Tea Party member with the same name as the Colorado killer and this amoeba said on air that it was this guy who did the deed and he was a tea party member etc etc and gave his info without checking his facts.
Nothing unusual here just “journalists” with an agenda as usual, specially from abc
This may or may not link to Ross’ partner in crime, George Stephanopolous: ABC News, This Week with George Stephanopoulos, http://www.abcnews.go.com/sections/ThisWeek/ThisWeek/tw...
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW Washington, DC 20500As a stooge for the current administration, he's positioned just beneath Obama in a Lewinsky-like manner. I try not to invoke crude and disgusting imagery here on FR but this evil being does the bidding of the Obama Crime Machine.
This is dated, but might get in the ball park: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1219648/posts
how about writing Brian’s supervisor? Brian will probably throw all the letters away, and delete all the emails.
You forgot to mention that he’s still beating his wife.
Was he working for NBC at the time of when Richard Jewell was falsely accused by Brokaw?
