http://landing.newsinc.com/shared/video.html?freewheel=69016&... In the initial reporting of the horrifying “Dark Knight” shooting, ABC rushed to report that a Jim Holmes– a name similar to that of the alleged shooter– was a member of a local Tea Party.

“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,” Ross said. “Now, we don’t know if this is the same Jim Holmes. But it’s Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado,” Brian Ross told George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America.”

The connection was wholly unverified, and ABC was forced to issue what some have deemed a “non-apology” retraction. Unlike the alleged shooter– a 24-year-old lunatic– this Holmes is reportedly a 52-year-old former law enforcement officer. Holmes added that, based on his experience in law enforcement, he knows you should “never, ever, ever bring somebody’s name or association into an accusation into the public eye” until you know the truth.

ABC appears to have missed that message.

    I hope that would make them pause a little before attacking a patriotic political movement.

    What happened there was a shame. Very poor journalism to say the least. I'd sue the pants off the guy if I were the innocent Jim Holmes.
