At least, the conclusions they want to reach! Via Sister Toldjah:
Earlier this morning, ABC’s Brian Ross rushed to point out a possible connection between alleged Colorado shooter James Holmes and a “Jim Holmes” whose name appears on a local tea-party group web site. But now ABC is calling that report “incorrect”:
An earlier ABC News broadcast report suggested that a Jim Holmes of a Colorado Tea Party organization might be the suspect, but that report was incorrect. Several other local residents with similar names were also contacted via social media by members of the public who mistook them for the suspect.
The suspect is said to be a 24-year-old former medical student, while the man with the similar name could be in his 50s.
Didn’t anybody learn from the Jared Lochner case not to jump to political conclusions until they had the actual facts?
Update: Karen, the Lonely Conservative, has more, and so far has a better discussion of the issues going on. So does Patterico and William Teach at The Pirate’s Cove.
