    Sorry, as much as I respect Mark Levin, that isn’t going to happen. It should but won’t.

  • Ghost

    Conservatives, make a stand:
    1) turn off the TV, really.
    2) understand that those people are malevolent, really.
    a) they know the power they have, they cannot be shamed

    YOU must remove yourself from them

    The ACTUAL Tea Partier James Holmes should sue. He’s over twice the age (52) and a different race (Hispanic) than the white 24 year old shooter. Confusing those two is impossible, and ABC’s reporting was unethical, negligent, and perhaps even malicious (with intent to make the story fit their political narrative).

  • Jerry M

    Let them stay. The more the public hears from these fools, the less credibility they have. This is Dan Rather revisited.

  • Conservative Ken

    It’s high time heads roll!

    The Liberals are frothing at the mouth for a Tea Party killer. They will find one if they have to make it happen out of thin air.

    These are the people who create Tea Party racism by planting an operative at rally’s in a KKK shirt.

    These are the people who cost Rush Limbaugh his Rams ownership bid by using a fake racist quote. YEAH Burwell, I’m talking about you!

    Now they try to pin the Colorado shooting on the Tea Party.

    Will they lose their jobs at ABC? sadly no, but we should never forget and throw this up in their miserable faces every chance we get!

  • GotFreedom

    Everyone needs to contact ABC to tell them that these 2 must go and that this type of so-called “reporting” will not be tolerated and then change the channel America.

    You can call them and tell them what you think. Their number is 212-456-7777.

    And don’t forget to contact their Parent Company-Disney (especially if you are a shareholder) and let them know how you feel about this type of irresponsible reporting as well.

    There are consequences to stupidity – an extended contract by the main stream media.

  • Tired Okie

    AMEN!!! #2 Ghost!! Just shut the damn tv off. Disconnect the cable and don’t hook it up except for bad weather reports. Don’t watch their news, their so called sit-coms, and their sports with their liberal media. I’m not even going to watch the olympics–nothing but political hype anyway like the nobel peace prize-just junk. Divorce them!!! Go for a walk, a ride in the country, fishing, anything but tv.

  • donh

    They KNOW everything about James Homes from the minute he was arrested …The data bases this government has….They can tell you what this man had for lunch on April 20. How many times he wipes his a$$ a day….all his credit card transactions….They KNOW this butcher is one of theirs…The government was investing in this man …..hoping to put him in charge of your lives..Letting James Holmes decide which embryo can be born and which is potentially defective to be aborted……… and so they wont let you know a damn thing about him of any substance…because Holmes damages the classified Dr Mengele genetic engineering agenda marching along under Obamacare…… The government intentionally pointed the finger at Tea Party knowing it was false . Now its about dismissing Holmes as an isolated mentally ill nobody……. Amazing how all that collectivce group think ” nobody made it on their own ” bunk disappears when a Satanist outs himself in complete melt down. Amazing how the CONSERVATIVE media goes along with it too ….afraid to connect Holmes to a larger cultural movement threatening our way of life.

  • Redwine

    Levin is correct. Instead of providing the public with responsible journalism (i.e. telling unbiased news stories), the MSM is rife with leftist political operatives and propagandists. (Stephanopoulos was never a journalist, he was a Clinton political adviser.) TV anchors like Ross don’t tell the news. They editorialize. They skew the news according to their political persuasion. Therefore, they deliberately misrepresent themselves in order to deceive the public, all with the approval and collusion of the corporations they work for.

    It’s not enough to just say that you should click off the news (and I haven’t subscribed to cable for years and don’t own a TV). These political operatives posing as newsmen must be held accountable for betraying the trust of the public – a job they are paid fantastic sums to do. Just as Dan Rather was thrown out for deliberately lying, Ross needs to go.

    Since the Tea Party James Holmes was hispanic, ABC’s story must have been racially motivated!

    Hispanic Tea Party Member Falsely Accused by ABC

    [He described his recent decision to join the Tea Party Patriots:

    I felt a general dissatisfaction with what I guess I like to characterize as
    the establishment Republicans. I had been to Republican conventions to
    try to get involved, to see who I could join or get aligned with. I wanted to
    be effective in changing the outcome for my country. I wouldn’t say I was
    stonewalled, nobody answered me in the Republican Party — not a soul
    would contact me. I even paid to get involved with the Colorado Hispanic
    Republicans and nothing happened. The only people that would really be
    open and honest and invite me to participate were the Tea Party Patriots.
    I had offers to come to this lecture and that lecture, and offers to come to
    trainings, so it was something that felt like it was politically active.

    What they can’t say.

  • Limousine Barry

    What’s wrong!

    I told David Axelrod to find one of my true blue MSM cronies and smear the Taxpayers. David Axelrod got on speed-dial with Brain Ross and the smear attack was put into motion. It’s that simple!

    Let me be clear, I do not take responsibly for Brian Ross picking some guy out of hat with the same name of the murder and smearing the Taxpayers. I have at least one degree of separation between David Axelrod and Brian Ross. I am safe!

    Worse, my attack dogs embarrassed me. But, we are still trying to find away to spin this against the Taxpayers or at least cause a distraction from my chity economic policies!

    If you like the way I smear the people with my pocket cronies – vote for me! Send $30.00 to me before midnight! My campaign sucks!

    My pig of bus is over-heating and David Axelrod and new scam to inflict upon my MSM donors. It involves the bottomless pit scam. These grossly over paid Talking Heads in my MSM have plenty of money to donate to me. Besides, they always vote for me. I say screw them for all they are worth! I cannot answer any more questions. Good day.

  • Like ABC will fire StepOnAllOfUs and Brian Ross? Hah! These bozo Journolists are doing exactly what they’re being paid to do.

    If anything, they’ll probably get a raise and a cushy job with the next Obammy Administration. Oh wait… they already do.

  • owl

    Naww…….they won’t fire them. I get ABC served with my coffee each morning and can’t cut them off. Some things are more important than politics, like a longtime spouse. At least they showed their colors in fine form for all to see on this one.

    I would like for one of these Professional Poop Scoopers to show me the violence or even the garbage created by a real member of the Tea Party. Really need a Breitbart to challenge them to lay their proof on the table. Show me or shut up the lies.

    I really want to hear of the incident that started them down this path. Of course it started like all the rest of the Dem campaigns. Dems yak, Scooper prints, tv Scooper yaks and quotes the Scooper print. There you have it, the new facts documented.

    A leader of the Tea Party Patriots called on media outlets to “stop all reckless and false reporting” after ABC News incorrectly linked one of its Colorado activists to the Batman shooting massacre at an Aurora movie theater early Friday morning.

    “We call on ABC News to immediately stop all reckless and false reporting, and we are putting all media outlets on notice that false political attacks on the American people will no longer be tolerated,” said Jenny Beth Martin, the national co-founder of Tea Party Patriots.

    “We demand the media report responsibly,” Martin said, adding, “It is irresponsible for any media outlet to suggest anyone was responsible for this tragedy other than those involved.”

    Brian Ross of ABC News on Friday wrongly suggested that the shooting suspect – identified by authorities as 24-year-old James Holmes — could be a tea party activist. Appearing on “Good Morning America,” Ross told host George Stephanopoulos that “there’s a Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colo., page on the Colorado Tea Party site.”

    Ross apparently was referencing this page on the website of the Colorado Tea Party Patriots.

    ABC News has since apologized.

    Joker behind bars and so is Holmes, home he rots in hell.

    No reference to Keith Ledger, may he rest in peace.
    ________________________________
    – MOVIE MASSACRE suspect James Holmes remained unapologetic and irrational Saturday in a Colorado jail where his life was at risk from inmates bent on revenge.

    Holmes, held under suicide watch in solitary confinement, remained in his murderous “Joker” persona after arriving at the Arapahoe Detention Center, a jailhouse worker told the Daily News.

    “Let’s just say he hasn’t shown any remorse,” the employee said. “He thinks he’s acting in a movie.”

    The man accused in the midnight theater massacre was still acting bizarrely a day after his rampage at a screening of “The Dark Night Rises” — the last film in the Batman trilogy.

    “He was spitting at the door and spitting at the guards,” one released inmate told The News outside the jail. “He’s spitting at everything. Dude was acting crazy.”

    Two other just-released inmates said the concerns of jail officials over Holmes’ survival were well-founded.

    The MSM has become so prejudice in their reporting that they are no longer presenting news, but instead promoting a biased liberal political opinion. So much so, that the Republican Party should demand equal time to present a dissenting reply.
    The Edward R Murrow’s have been replaced with metrosexual dwarfs like Stephanopoulos.

  • Patty

    “They”, the lame stream media has constantly made malicious attempts to denigrate the Tea Party or anyone on the Right.

    If the media or Obama and his administration think for one minute we are voting this disgrace upon America back, they are kidding themselves. He is running out of cash like he ran this nation into 4 trillion or more in debt. I believe our nation has had its fill with government and the media on the left and their constant braying and manufacturing false and malicious attacks on good people.

  • mg4us

    Mark Levin has the right answer. . .

    These two should be fired. . until then, every time a conservative is asked a question, they need to bring it back to these two and irresponsible journalism & reporting. .

    Brian Ross-sky and george stuff-in-up-an-ass need to go or at least be shown to be the low-life scum that they truly are.

  • Estragon

    Never was a big Levin fan, especially after the kerfluffle some time ago between him and Hinderaker of Power Line and Patterico, in which he proved incapable of admitting error or correcting his false assertions. But he is right here.

    Stephanopoulus is equally guilty here for treating the information as potentially relevant. He and Ross are both just leftist propaganda hacks.

    ABC News probably won’t do anything about them, since being a leftist propaganda organ is in their mission statement.

    Do people still watch ABC News? (Really?)

    It is banned at our house, since the infamous Obama interview with Stephanopoulos, when Bo talked about his Muslim religion and Progressive Georgie corrected him as if it was a perfectly natural slip of the tongue.

    Why would any one watch these liars for the news?

    Just read this am. there are no less than 80 James Holmes in the general area of the shooting. 80….if this is true- what these “professional journalists” did is disgraceful. If Obama and his pravda press are willing to do these things out in the open where everyone can witness….what do they do in secret?

  • Pugzi

    Sue em!

  • Tregonsee

    Contact your local ABC station. Politely tell them your concern. Make clear you know they have no direct control, but that Brian Ross does appear frequently in broadcasts on their station. If you belong to the Tea Party, fine. If not, make that point as well. Tell them you have contacted ABC directly, but hope they will add their weight as an affiliate. You will almost certainly get a polite brushoff, but this sort of pressure WILL be expressed to the network.

  • Brandon Roeglin

    Two words: Richard Jewell.

  • Ross may get the heave-ho but not Stephanopoulos.

    Ross is the same guy who tried to make Michelle Bachman look bad because her husband counsels homosexuals in the hope that they will seek a new way of life. It was really crappy jounalism.

    Ross should join the ranks of the unemployed.

    Didn’t say I got my news, only I hear them with my coffee because they are my local channel and spouse (of many, many, many years) wants it there.

    #43 “Two words: Richard Jewell.”

    Yep. Some things stick in our memories such as the FBI taking the mom’s tupperware. That was such vicious reporting and false.
