the news media are at it yet again

IN THEIR ZEAL TO LINK ‘CONSERVATIVES’ TO HORRENDOUS ‘DARK KNIGHT’ MASSACRE, ABC-NEWS GETS IT WRONG AGAIN … WHEN WILL THEY JUST DO THEIR JOB?

We all cringe in horror at the all-too-frequent senseless mass killings by these disturbed individuals. We empathize with and offer sympathy for the victims, their friends, and families ... and pray for the police and first responders who risked life and limb to do their jobs and CONTINUE to do their jobs.

And we are REVULSED when political activists, media, and pundits react in typical knee-jerk fashion to make political hay out of these tragedies.

Again, and again, and again.

It’s a long-running narrative that repeats itself over and over and people should be outraged.

It’s so telling … the same media that has refused to report seriously on the federal government’s selling of guns to Mexican drug cartels which resulted in the killing of hundreds of innocent people is quick to point the finger at the TEA Party after the senseless shooting in a Colorado theatre.

Compare the reporting with the massacre at Ft. Hood where the media bent over backwards NOT to tell the real story of what happened, how political correctness facilitated THAT shooter’s success by a system that ignored a mountain of evidence that pointed to his being a potential terrorist.

Oh how the media PRAYED the killer was a white conservative … just as they did with every other high profile killer regardless of the facts or lack of facts.

Absolutely disgusting!

When all is said and done, the profile on the alleged shooter, already reported to be a recent medical student and phD candidate in neuroscience, will probably reveal he had delusions of grandeur, the inability to relate to people, especially women, was someone who exhibited weird behavior and ideas but who somehow "slipped through the cracks", and maybe, just maybe, a penchant for extremist views like those espoused by the Occupiers movement.

Clarification ... he was/is a sick and angry man!

Oh, by the way, ABC‘s Brian Ross, who linked an innocent 52 year-old man to the shooting, has now walked back that accusation that the he and the TEA Party were linked to this killing ... but again the damage has been done.

An innocent man, thanks to Brian Ross and ABCNews is now receiving death threats.

And the media have shown who they are.

God, how I wish people would wake up and see what’s going on in this country!
