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

Posted on 07/20/2012 5:19:11 PM PDT by Kaslin

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?

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.

Time for him to sue ABC for millions and millions of $$$$$.

Their rush to slander the Tea Party via not doing their due diligence should be why they should pay for slandering this man and all that is raining down on him now.

That’s just it. These shooters are generally always liberals, registered Democrats, Obama voters, Al Gore devotees and Occupy Afficianados; so these “journalists” look FIRST thing at the Tea Party rolls, find a similar name, then report it.

Sad that the media are such a pack of jackals that they might go after a innocent man family simply because one of their own asshats was so juiced up to score points with his liberal masters, he throws whatever professionalism he had (not much) out the window and libels a innocent man

Betcha the ABC legal counsel sphincter muscles is tighter than a snare drum...having to deal with the potential fallout...

I read the headlines this morning online and then turned on the television morning news shows (which I never do anymore - can’t stand the criminal bias)for a total of 20 seconds.

My television was already tuned to ABC when I turned it on.

During those 20 seconds, George “midget-man” Stephie was gleefully spewing the Demorat talking point of linking the tea party to the crime and Brian Ross agreed it could be true.

I shut off my television. That’s 20 seconds of my life I’ll never get back again.

Stephie should just broadcast straight from Obama’s a## and cut out the middle man.

I long ago recognized the bias in the media. But after the combined coverage of the Obama-worshipping 2008 election and the 2010 mass-murder in Tucson being blamed on Palin and the Tea Party, the media crossed over into territory that made them soulmates to the propagandistic, Soviet-Era mouthpieces of Pravda. They can’t be trusted on anything. They’re only allegiance is to the promotion and protection of the socialist state.

This is just further confirmation.

Hopefully some liberal nutcase doesn't injure or kill anyone because of Brian Ross’ liberal bent.

Suing him and ABC isn't near enough if anyone is hurt.

I wonder if there are any conservative attorneys out there who would represent him in a huge libel lawsuit against ABC? With the proceeds being used to pay for Tea Party events, which would make the win all the sweeter.

Nah, let the left be the ones who cannot handle good and evil and who thus have to continuously knee-jerk slander for and excuse the murderers of society.

Hoplophobia as a result is usually a dead giveaway because it always is them who cannot handle addictions, guns and what not and thus always end up requesting for regulations in that respect.

Agree 100% with your prediction. I’d be amazed if he didn’t. For some reason, he naturally defaults to defending the drive-bys.

I hope he proves us wrong, but I wouldn’t count on it.

During the Mike Rosen show on 850KOA out of Denver today a caller said he recognized the shooter immediately from his picture and that he had interviewed him at an Occupy Denver rally. Mike asked him to send him the video. Wouldn’t that be something if it were true after the media has already tried to link him with the T.E.A. party. I didn’t hear the whole exchange so I am going to download the podcast and listen to it again. He said he was almost certain and Mike said almost certain wasn’t good enough and he would be excited to hear back from the guy.

Yup. I don’t like slip-and-fall lawyers, but in this case, I’ll make an exception. I hope Mr. Holmes finds himself a really, really expensive slip-and-fall, and gives ABC News what they sorely deserve. That’s the only way to stop this crap.

The OWS and their obsession on the Denver-mint... lest we forget:

Alex Jones vs Michelle Malkin: Chaos at the Denver Mint

http://www.milkandcookies.com/link/122564/detail/

Malkin was there denouncing the violent action the left was wishing on the destruction of the Denver-Mint with Alex Jones at the helm and attacking Michelle Malkin.

That’s the video America should watch. Obama is about to rape appart this nation very violently and people keep acting like the pedophile in chief is not scaring the children, Penn State style.

They never learn.. Didn’t Michael Moore just do this with Zimmerman? Haven’t heard anything more about it, so I am assuming thre was a large cash exchange with the man whose address he gave out before doing his homework.
