    When I first heard this I thought it odd that his mother would say such a thing. Now that it is explained it isn't odd at all ABC has now proved it has no credibility.

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

    "This statement is to clarify a statement made by ABC media. I was awakened by a call from a reporter by ABC on July 20 about 5:45 in the morning. I did not know anything about a shooting in Aurora at that time," Holmes said in a statement this afternoon, read to the national press by attorney Lisa Damiani. "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."

    That's my question as well, because when they get something wrong (especially on the evening shows) they come back the next day (or as soon as they find the error) and apologize for it, and provide the correct information. I've seen Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'donnel both do this.

    Yep, looks like ABC is trying to give MSLSD a run for it's money.
