Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

MSM continues getting it wrong in their flailing attempts to connect the Tea Party to violence

By now, many of you have seen how Brian Ross of ABC, with an assist from former Clintonite George Snuffalupugus, committed arguably the worst cast of journalistic malpractice since Dan Rather’s forged memo story cost him his job.  Immediately after the Colorado movie shooting, Ross found a guy with the same name as the shooter on a Colorado Tea Party Facebook page.  Turns out that James Holmes isn’t that uncommon of a name and the shooter and “Liker” of the FB page weren’t the same guy.  Go figure.

Anywho, this isn’t the first time the MSM has attempted to paint the Tea Party or conservative groups with the violent brush.  There are at least six verifiable cases of the MSM employing this shameful tactic…and in every single instance, the MSM was 100% wrong.  Excerpt:

After James “The Joker” Holmes committed unspeakable acts of violence at a midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” last Friday, ABC’s Brian Ross — in what can only be described as a sloppy act of journalism — practically jumped at the chance to tie the shooter to the Tea Party.

“There is a Jim Holmes of Aurora, CO, uh Paige, on the Colorado Tea Party site as well, talking about him joining the Tea Party last summer. We don’t know if this is the same Jim Holmes, but it is Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado,” Ross said.

Problem: Ross and ABC never investigated the connection. Had they checked their facts, they would’ve discovered that the 52-year-old Tea Partier was not, in fact, the same man arrested by Aurora police that morning. But that didn’t stop Ross. He went on national television and casually tossed out the idea that the Tea Party might somehow be connected to the “Batman” massacre.

Of course, ABC and Ross have apologized for their sloppy reporting, but the speculation remains: Somebody, whether it was Ross or his producers, wanted to tie the conservative grassroots movement to the nightmarish events that took place that night.

But you know what? Conservatives should be used to this at this point. After all, it’s not like Ross’ undisciplined act of media malpractice is a first. Indeed, the media has a long and illustrious history of trying to tie acts of psychopathic violence to either the Tea Party or some other conservative group or personality.

Lawyer and Blogger Gabriel Malor has an op-ed in the New York Post that includes a sampling of some of the moments when the media, without any sort of evidence or proof, has falsely connected conservatism to random and senseless acts of violence. We’ve decided to pick six of them and go into detail.

You MUST read the whole thing, especially to be reminded of the specific cases where the MSM got it wrong.  Yet they keep doing it!

This is what we’re up against, folks.  A state-run MSM that has gone from reporting to advocacy in a couple of generations.  Fortunately, we have the alternative media to call them to the carpet, and we will continue to expose them as the leftist hacks that they are.

Nope…no liberal media bias!

Obama on the economy: Our plan “worked”

If, by “worked”, he means that he meant to destroy the American economy, then I’d have to agree with him.
