Brian Ross is one of the most honored and respected journalists in the country.

ABC MUST fire him, and Stephanapoulus as well.
Forcing them to look for new employment in the OBAMA ECONOMY would be pure Karma.
They need to fire that lying liberal piece of excrement...and his little Georgie Porgie boy too!
ENOUGH is ENOUGH of this lying horsechit and them getting away with it ALL the damned time!
That depends on the standards of ABC. In their eyes the act of typing in someone’s name+ tea party+ euphoria may be what qualifies as journalism.
In my book he is a friggin piece of garbage that needs to be pulling fries at the local McDonalds. And his little girlfriend Stephie Stephanoopolis can work the milkshake machine.
So, it depends on perspective I guess.
“Brian Ross is one of the most honored and respected journalists in the country.”
Oh boy! You can’t make this stuff up! Oh wait...they just did!
Well Brian Ross has gotten an innocent man in fear for his life. What do you intend to do about that, trouble-makers?
All because you want to be the ‘first’, whether it’s a lie or not.
Maybe you need to revamp your polices to get PROOF before you open your yaps.
I wouldn’t recognize the guy if I were fixin to flush him.
Firing Ross and Stephanolulus would be what would have been expected in the world of media news a quarter century ago. But today’s advocacy media, it ain’t gonna happen. That apology is as far as it goes. Remember in 2004 how long it took to get rid of Rather when he was peddling lies about the President of the United States? This poor guy in Colorado is just a nobody. So Ross Skates.
I meant Aurora not euphoria. That is what Ross felt when he thought the guy was Tea Party. Sorry for the error.
Doing Google searches qualifies someone as a journalist these days. It is pretty pathetic really.
Media playbook for high profile shooting:
1. Connect to TEA Party
2. Connect to talk radio
3. Call for gun control
4. In midst of gun control ‘noise’, retract TEA Party connection
5. NEVER, EVER, retract connection to talk radio - all evils can be blamed on it.
6. Wait and HOPE for the next massacre
Winner of the 2012 Rather Award for putting ones career in the toilet?
BULL $h!+ !!!!!!!!
Why would the fact that the shooter belonged to any group (other than a known terrorist group) be a factor in reporting a story like this?... I’ll tell ya why, because the facts don’t fit with ABC’s preferred narrative. Their aim is to create a stigmatized persona of the Tea Party so as to delegitimize that group... Brian Ross you are a scum-bag, you sob!
If he wants to be respected, he would do like Gallagher, from the old Walt Disney days:
"Who, what, when, where, why?"
But, he had to believe it's Bush Palin Conservative Tea Party NRA Right Wing's Fault.
He made himself more amateur than a good cub reporter at the local station.
But, like a good Democrat shill, he put the noise out there, and the Democrat base doesn't care about the truth any more than Brian Ross. They've heard what they want to hear, therefore it's the truth.
Sorry, Brian, back to reality where you still suck.
NBC would snap him up in a heartbeat. They'd like his style.
Yah, and they rail against blogosphere news dissemination... without the internet these Brian Rosses would still be in control of the news...
like poetry off the pen... good post...
ABC News’ Brian Ross has a homosexual travel page! http://tinyurl.com/7ksoqqu
If its not him, I’ll apologize later.
Not any more.
Brian Ross should be fired immdiately
I surely hope the guy who was slandered is able to extract massive damages via the legal system.
I'll further speculate that Ross spent zero time attempting to verify the truth of his suspicion.
Why are you insulting employees at the local McDonalds?
It wasn’t about being first. Sitting at my laptop, it took all of two minutes on google and intelius to ascertain that the tea party Holmes was not the shooter. All Ross did was tap the following into google;James Holmes: Aurora:Tea Party. It was never about being first. it was about the narrative.
I can’t link to an ABC website.
Either my hard drive or my head would explode!
If the defamed Holmes sues and wins,Ross should be tossed out on his ass.
George,the stuck up little pr**k,should end up working as a mop boy in a gay bath house.
I hear that both brian ross and little georgie stephanapoulus are up for the annual Goebbels Award.
