ABC News and Brian Ross are apologizing for an "incorrect" report that James Holmes, the suspect in the Colorado theater shooting, may have had connections to the Tea Party.
"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 said in a statement. "ABC News and Brian Ross apologize for the mistake, and for disseminating that information before it was properly vetted."
In a similar statement released minutes earlier, ABC News said the report was "incorrect" but, rather than apologize, wrote: "Several other local residents with similar names were also contacted via social media by members of the public who mistook them for the suspect." The statement appeared at first to be an attempt byt the network to abdicate responsibility for the report.
Thank you....and thanks for supplying the link. I hope his bosses fire him, too. This is NOT a random false report for him...there is a pattern here of hatred of anyone not liberal.
Of course, his bosses probably feel the same way, unfortunately. :(
Time to boycott ABC News sponsors and write them and tell them why. Anyone have a list?
Yeah, I held off until the 8th grade before I smacked him.
” Be sure your brains are engaged before putting your mouths in gear.”
WHAT brains???/s;) Seriously the response should be, “Sorry ABC. Apology not accepted. Our lawyers wii be in contact with yours”.
Hey Brian Ross....
I dont accept your Fake appology
You Lying Commie Rat.
Their entire staff should be fired and left to fend for themselves in their own Obamaville that they wish for the rest of us.
Maybe they'll put Dupnik on the case?
Done On Purpose with the intent to be the first media outlet to get political mileage out of it. Brian Ross needs to read this link for more “story” ideas:
Radical Left-Wing & Registered Democrat, Obama Supporter, Occupy Black Bloc Member James E. Holmes Shoots Up Aurora Co Movie Theater
You should have back up for your bull.
Guess you still don’t get it. Brian Ross should have had back up for HIS bull. And since he didn’t, how would he like it if someone “identified” him as a sex offender. What’s good for the goose.....
Not good enough; they should start firing from the top all the way down.
There’s a “Jim Holmes” in the Tea Party?
There are TWO men named “Brian Ross” listed in the DoJ National Sex Offender Public Website.
