ABC News producer suspended over e-mail

The executive producer of “Good Morning America Weekend” has been given a one-month suspension after an 18-month-old e-mail critical of President Bush was leaked to the press.

ABC News made the move Friday, though spokesmen at the network declined comment.

John Green’s e-mail dated Sept. 30, 2004, apparently was written during a George W. Bush-John Kerry debate. One read: “Are you watching this? Bush makes me sick. If he uses the ’mixed messages’ line one more time I’m going to puke.”

The e-mail appeared two weeks ago on the Drudge Report and has been the talk of the Internet. Green apologized well before the suspension occurred. He has been executive producer of the show since 2004, when it began.
