Thanks ABC: Falsely Accused Tea Party Member Now Receiving Threats
Townhall.com ^ | July 20, 2012 | Katie Pavlich

ABC's Brian Ross may have apologized for linking Colorado Tea Party member James Holmes to the alleged violent "Batman" shooter who killed 12 and wounded 59 others in the early morning hours today, but that hasn't stopped threats against Holmes from rolling in. More from Twitchy:

Photobucket

 

More from Breitbart:

Holmes 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.

Brian ross got it out there pretty darn quickly. Consciously or not the damage has been done. Remember when Gabby Giffords was shot? Someone mentioned the “Tea Party* and BOOM! All over the news. Yeah, they make a retraction and who listens?

Er, not Brian Williams (he’s buffoon enough) but Brian Ross, so let the anger toward Williams subside and redirect toward Ross.

Prediction: Bill O'Reilly will stand up for Brian Ross. O'Reilly will say Ross is a decent, professional news reporter or some such tripe.

I've seen Ross. He's an arrogant jerk.

I’ll throw CBS into the mess. Just 5 minutes ago, CBS told about a guy who rescued his family from the theater. Guess who that was? The same idiot who earlier admitted to dropping his kid, jumping off the balcony, running outside and driving away in his car leaving his girlfriend and two kids to fend for themselves. CBS obviously needed a hero story and so they created one. LIARS!!!

James Holmes should be ready to get the ‘Joe the Plumber’ treatment.

I 3-4 short days, we will all know about every fault this man has ever had....gotta knock him down, so Ross doesn’t look as bad.
