Brian Ross Blames Tea Party

ABC News investigative reporter Brian Ross seemed to be pushing a political agenda Friday, eagerly reporting social media driven speculation that the Colorado shooter may have been a Tea Party member - as if that would have provided an instant explanation for the massacre.

There's a Jim Holmes of Aurora Colorado page on the Colorado Tea Party site as well, talking about him joining the Tea Party last year...

The Brian Ross mess, reported by Emily Rooney on WGBH Boston's 'Greater Boston' overlaps with the new HBO series The Newsroom. The fictional news network, on a mission to do accurate news instead of stupid, ratings-driven news (ie Brian Ross), does a hit piece on the Tea Party.
