#1 Well, the report did its job. I talked to someone yesterday who thought the shooter was Tea Party.
Can't argue about methods when they produce the correct results.

#2 Wasn't Lee Harvey Oswald one of the founding members of the Tea Party?
He and Hubert Humphrey, right?

#3 Other than that Mrs. Lincoln how did you enjoy the excellent play?

#4 So is Ross and Stef still employed by ABC News?
Then your statement is B-S.

#5 Incorrect report hell. It was intentional.

#7 Ross has a track record of reporting-gaffes. ABC keeps him around because he's also done some stellar work.
That said, it's time for ABC's Ben Sherwood to seriously review Mr Ross' employment.
With this (deliberate?) foul-up and the now Arlene Holmes's issue, I see a few lawsuits in ABC's future.

#8 That report had two 'gaffes'. Remember when the Batman killer's mother said, "You have the right person"? She wasn't talking about her son, as it turns out, but answering the phone by agreeing that she was Thus'n'such, mother of James Holmes. They ran the tape of her exact words in reponded to that different question.

#9 They ran the tape of her exact words in reponded to that different question.
Yet another case of cooking the transcript to support a fake narrative. Can we start calling this the Zimmerman Syndrome? Once upon a time, it would be unethical behavior. Today, they call it Journalism.

#10 if you were woken up at 5:30AM, would you want to (or be awake enough) have that be evidence #1 for national scorn? I think she said, basically, "yeah, I'm his Mom, what's up?" ABC played it for explosiveness and impact
