An earlier ABC News broadcast report suggested that a Jim Holmes of a Colorado Tea Party organization might be the suspect, but that report was incorrect. ABC News and Brian Ross apologize for the mistake, and for disseminating that information before it was properly vetted.
Like ABCNews ever vets any information outside the narrative.
The media’s automatic Tea Party connection to every major shooting incident in the United States has become a standard practice in spite of proof to the contrary. Ross went straight for the website that he was sure was inhabited by some Tea Party hater who mowed down 12 innocent people.
Breitbart News spoke to James Michael Holmes, the Tea Party member falsely identified this morning by ABC News’ Brian Ross and George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America as the possible suspect in the mass shooting early this morning at a screening of the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises. He is a 52-year-old Hispanic conservative who joined the Tea Party after becoming disillusioned with the Republican party.
“It was freaky,” said Holmes, describing his reaction when ABC News speculated that he was the culprit who entered a crowded theater and opened fire on dozens of innocent men, women, and children. He disconnected his telephone and says that he is worried about members of his family who might be contacted by the media.
Congratulations, ABC. You’ve outdone yourself in the Liberal Dumbass Department.
Hey Brian: There are at least a dozen James Holmes located in Aurora, Colorado alone. Morons like you who have a PhD in Google surfing for “bitter gun-clinging Tea Party shooters” couldn’t figure out that it might be a different James Holmes. There’s thousands of “James Holmes” in the phone book and on the internet. Some of them could even be “Occupy” nuts, assclown.
Part of the leftwing media’s philosophy is “There is nothing wrong with politicizing tragedy”.
Hat tip to Ace of Spades:
The Brian Ross Experience: Iowahawk has studied the techniques of master news investigator Brian Ross — 33rd degree black belt in looking things up on Google — and is emulating him. In his Twitter feed, IowaHawkBlog is posting every single mention of a “Brian Ross” he finds in public records.
Hey, This Must Be Rush Limbaugh’s Fault: So sayeth the genius lefties on Twitter, complied by Twitchy.
Fuckin’ libtards. Even when lone wackos Jared Loughner and Joseph Andrew Stack turned out to be deranged leftwingnuts and not Tea Party supporters as they fervently hoped, they still they continued to fill the airwaves with spit-flecked rants.
When Soldiers in Arkansas and Texas were murdered by radical muslims, the MSM cockholsters switched into high gear over a “backlash against muslims”, and in some cases, blamed the victims.
Ross is getting pounded for his stupidity. Couldn’t happen to a better network.
