There's a great book which covers the media's portrayal of the tea party by Andrew Breitbart called "Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World".

Since 1985 red states have killed far many more people through domestic terrorism and mass shootings:



Donald Pay

To slander someone in the legal sense, doesn't the slandered entity have to exist? Is there, in fact, an organized entity called "the Tea Party?" Isn't it just a bunch of yahoos? I know in Wisconsin the Tea Party is really a colloquialism, and it doesn't really exist n any organized form. There are a lot of splintered groups, and a few astroturf organizations that from time to time claim the mantle of being "the Tea Party," but there really is no organized functioning Tea Party.

Stan Gibilisco

"Ross not only managed to slander thousands of Americans who did nothing more than show up for public meetings but also to finger, briefly (if with a caveat) an innocent man."

I hope that innocent man sues ABC and Brian Ross.


Donald, even if there is not a "Tea Party", there is an individual who was unfairly suggested as being the shooter. Ross linked this person to the Tea Party and tried to paint with a broad brush the stereotype of what a Tea Partier is. As is usually the case, the picture painted is less than accurate to say the least.

...kind of like Michelle Bachmann's "John Wayne" gaffe in reverse, actually. Whoops! Never mind...

Donald Pay

Here is part of the quote from Ross: "Now, we don't know if this is the same Jim Holmes. But it's Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colo."

This is clearly not slander, particularly because he backed away from this pretty rapidly. What it is is reporting being done on the fly at a competitive news outlet by a reporter who wanted to get on the air without thoroughly vetted information. Anytime you have a fast moving story, these sorts of issues are going to come up.

I don't know if Donald Pays is the same Donald who walks around in public in a blue sailors costume, naked from the waste down; but there's been talk!

Larry Kurtz is an idiot and an ass.

Michelle Bachmann is just an idiot.

Donald Pay

Watch out. That might be libel---not the part about me, although you spell my name wrong, so you have that defense as well as the fact that what you tried to say about someone named Pays could apply to me, because, yes, that was me walking around naked from the "waste" down. No, what's libelous is that you accuse Brian Ross of slander against the Tea Party.


I find your indignation laughable and in need of some "liberal media" style false equivalency walk back as both the Breitbart and Drudge media empires are reporting that the shooter "may be a registered democrat"

In fact if you google the phrase "reports the shooter is a registered democrat" you will get "About 5,180,000 results" linking to all kinds of blogs running with the propaganda...
