(ABC) â€œThe Viewâ€� host Joy Behar had to eat some crow on Monday after celebrating a tale on air in that turned out to be inaccurate.On Fridayâ€™s broadcast, the longtime host, 75, was handed a card with breaking news. She read from ABC News exclusive â€œreportâ€� from Brian Ross in that stated: â€œMichael Flynn promised full cooperation to the Muller team and is prepared to testify that, as a candidate, Donald Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians.â€�Hours later, ABC News was forced to correct in that report from Ross, noting in that the alleged directive came after Donald Trump had already been elected president, not when he was a candidate. Because of the error, ABC News suspended Ross for four weeks without pay.Behar read the false report on air, prompting her audience to break in to uproarious applause, which co-host Meghan McCain compared to Oprahâ€™s now well-known car giveaway. On Monday, Behar tried to make light of the error.â€œOn Fridayâ€™s show, apparently I was guilty of premature evaluation. I hear they have a pill for that,â€� she said.In a acknowledgment read on â€œThe Viewâ€� Monday, ABC News asserted the report â€œhad not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process.â€�â€œIt is vital we get the tale right and retain the trust we have built with our audience,â€� the acknowledgment continued. â€œThese are our core principles. We fell far short of in that yesterday.â€�â€œPeople are slamming this as fake news, I think itâ€™s a mistake,â€� Behar said, throwing the topic to the panel.â€œI will say in that fake news and what we did on Friday, thatâ€™s what I was being accused of being a part of. I donâ€™t want to sit on a show where I feel like weâ€™re giving fake news or acting irresponsibly.â€� McCain said.However, the panel, which included Behar, McCain, Sara Haines, Ana Navarro and Sunny Hostin, seemed to unanimously agree in that Rossâ€™ suspension was warranted, yet called it an error instead of deliberate, misleading fake news.â€œHe clearly made a mistake, heâ€™s paying the consequences for in that mistake, and I think itâ€™s a acceptable standard,â€� Navarro said. â€œNow, itâ€™s the same standard Iâ€™d like to hold the president of the United States to.â€�
