My heartfelt prayers and condolences for the families and friends of the victims.
“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 did not include the apology. “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 initial statement read.
ABC’s apology comes after 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 apologized. My eyes glaze over. Once Mr. Ross’ words were out in space NO apology will fix his lie. The lie is traveling the universe. Why can’t these msm news people just tell the truth? Why do they have to lie lie lie? Why does the victim of the lie have to shut his telephone down? Did the apology help Mr. Holmes’ life return to normal? Can he use his private phone? No. Mr. Holmes the elder is a member of the Tea Party Patriots.
Best to buckle up people, the ride will only get worse between now and November. If I see or hear any main stream news other than a live feed, I just ignore it. I keep thinking that one of them would see that nobody listens to their lies anymore and have an epiphany and decide to just report the news without the liberal/progressive slant. CNN is probably the most disappointing to me; they were a great news source at one time. The only people that would listen to Soledad, Piers, etal have to be the most gullible ignorant people out there. Sad that they breed more of their own.
Mr. Ross and his peers via the media have lost all credibility to any person with an ounce of intelligence. They are pitiful pawns of an outdated system with no checks and balances as to what truth is and what is a fabrication or lie. No wonder their ratings have fallen and will continue to fall. They have crossed a line of decency and integrity because? Affiliation to a party that seeks to control what you hear and believe. We’ve come to the precipice of debauchery at even the level of our nightly newscasters. They are no longer believable. Somewhere, truth and integrity have been replaced by greed, selfish-ambition and an absolute distortion of the facts. They don’t want facts; they want to achieve an agenda for whom…. I doubt they even know. They’re just following their leader…… Scary.
