    If an ABC reporter EVER calls you and ask you if you are so-in-so DO NOT SAY
    "yes, you have the right person"!!!!

    The ABC reporter:
    "He asked if I was Arlene Holmes and if my son was James Holmes who lives in Aurora, Colorado. I answered yes, you have the right person. I was referring to myself."

    (See also: Full coverage Colorado theater shooting)

    "I asked him to tell me why he was calling and he told me about a shooting in Aurora," she continues. "He asked for a comment. I told him I could not comment because I did not know if the person he was talking about was my son, and I would need to find out."

    Holmes's mother suggests ABC News mischaracterized her statement - POLITICO.com

    THE 2nd time the ABC reporting is so suspect!!
    First Ross calls Tea Party now says Mom said Holmes was right guy!

    Both so leading and incorrect but nevertheless there are people thanks to ABC News sloppy reporting that the guy was a tea party member and the mother knew he was going to do something like this!
    Don't say you like me didn't jump to those conclusions courtesy of ABCNEWS!

    I just heard this on Mark Levin on the way home from the store...I was absolutely staggered by the lack of professionalism or ethics displayed by this news organization.

    I hope more people are understanding now how the current MSM has been so poor in journalistic professionalism by failing to adhere to the Five "Ws".. WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY?
    In this case the reporter so intent on getting the "WHY" heard "you have the right person" and did an even more egregious error... JUMPED to conclusions!

    They're part of the Fourth Estate...beholden to defending Obama...the left and progressives.

    The media has been infiltrated by PRAVDA types. They're everywhere.

    You have got to be kidding, there is no way a reporter could possible be that stupid. This had to be deliberate.

    I concur, but we will never prove it, they'll claim it was simply a misunderstanding...

    But the difference is only in degrees of unworthiness.

    "ABC...we're not intentionally dishonest, just incredibly stupid."

    ABC: Always Bull Crap.

    What recreational pharmaceuticals do you have to ingest in order to believe ABC is a credible source of news?

    USMB lefties, help me out, here.

    Virtually all the media has devolved into enquireristic sensationalism with no real journalism.

    PBS is still pretty good.
