Breaking news…

News flash….
Brian Ross was arrested today for robbery and molestation of a ten year old.

NO not THE Brian Ross of ABC news but just someone with his name. What’s my point? Well today on ABC news, THE Brian Ross came on the air with “breaking News” about the man who shot and killed the people in the Colorado movie theater, Ross said, he was affiliated with the evil ‘Tea Party’. The problem was it was NOT the same man that shot those people. Mr Ross, the celebrated talking head for the white house, was quick to be first with the news without checking any facts. It seemed he wanted more to show how the Tea Party was an organization of gun toting extremists than getting his facts straight.

When I was as they say young and dumb, way back in High school, we were taught that the newspapers ONLY reported facts. It was up to the public to interpret what those facts meant and how they effected us. Over the years I have come to understand this is definitely not true. Though most news outlets, weather it be print, TV, radio or internet do not print out and out lies, they still manage to twist what is true to suit there needs. It could be as simple matter as not covering one side of a topic or even limiting that coverage that does not reflect there view. Or as in today’s case it could be reporting a fact that on face value is true, (someone with the same name is a member of the Tea Party…just not the one that went nuts and shot and killed people.

Yes later this afternoon there was a retraction by ABC of the ‘breaking news story’ by Mr Ross. But I am sure many minds were already thinking of the image of a Tea Party meeting with every member walking around with automatic weapons ready to shoot people who didn’t think like they do.

Thank you Mr Ross for once again misrepresenting the truth.

    Ah, yes, leave it up to the 3 stooge lap dog media networks to show us their liberal bias ass once more. It was about 15 yrs. ago when this bias became glaringly apparent to me with the Mpls. paper(s). Things such as bad news Democrat stories on the bottom fold of the front page or inside the other sections, or not mentioned at all. Bad news Republican stories get front page headline coverage, sometimes in 2″ tall lettering. Then it’s always “the conservative or Repub. Sen. or Rep. but almost never a mention of party affiliation when it’s a Democrat
    Too bad Neil Bortz is retiring in Jan. His radio show along with so many others, tears the cover off these rats.
