ABC draws possible Tea Party connection with alleged Aurora shooter
Politico.com ^ | 20 Jul 12 | Dylan Byers

Posted on 07/20/2012 1:00:05 PM PDT by seanmerc

ABC News has suggested that James Holmes -- the suspect in today's shooting in Aurora, Colorado -- may have a connection to the Tea Party.

ABC's Brian Ross reported this morning that there is "a Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado, page on the Colorado Tea party site... talking about him joining the Tea Party last year."

"Now, we don't know if this is the same Jim Holmes," Ross cautioned "but it's Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado."

ABC News is the only network or cable news channel to suggest a possible Tea Party connection, according to a survey of the TV Eyes database at 9:30 a.m. ET, though they did not verify that the two individuals were one and the same.

Thank you ABC and Politico for giving Conservatives yet another club to beat your incompetent politically corrupt industry to death with.

Geeze. I think there’s a Brian Ross listed as a pedophile. Now, I don’t know if it’s the same Brian Ross who reports for ABC, but....

Just like the Bill Ayers that visited the WH wasn’t the “Bill Ayers” that attacked the pentagon?

I hope, like I know you will, do a search of all FR users, and be able to tell the Colorado police that the shooter was not one of ours.

Gee, why didn’t the ABC fool jump to the conclusion that the deranged shooter must be a democrat?
After all, he is a 24 year old, studying for a PhD and probably voted for Obama.

Way to check and verify your sources Ross.....then again, this was stated with devious intent. FU LSM.

The LSM pulled the same carpola with Jared Loughner initially linking him with right wing conservatives. Totally false and incompetent— LIARS and slimes.

Yes, the same Bill who stated that he didn’t think they went far enough when the Weathermen were spreading their terror around the country. I am sure Bill & Bernadette are proud of this OWL fanatic.

NO! False, you lying ABC! In fact, an independent Private Investigator is now saying “James Holmes” marched with the Occupy Wall Street gangs!

Wouldn’t be surprised if the weapons were from “Fast and Furious”. This is what the Dems would be screaming if things were reversed.

Brian Ross robbed a bank here in Central Florida.
It was a Bank of America branch.

Now that would be a hoot.
It would get swept under the rug so fast. . . . . . . .

We knew this was coming. The LSM is always quick to lay the blame on things like this on the TEA Party. And they're always wrong.
Somehow, I don't see the jerk who murdered all those people going to see Brigitte Gabriel next week, which is what the Jim Holmes in Aurora plans to do.....

I wrote to ABC and told them they had little credibility and that I would think that others might feel the same way. Apology NOT accepted. ABC MEANT for that to be heard.
