ABC News’ Tea Party Apology Isn’t Good Enough

This is the same bias that was on glaring display after the Gabby Giffords shooting, when reporters tried — falsely and based on no evidence whatsoever — to pin the shooting on heated Tea Party rhetoric.

It’s the same bias that pushed the mainstream press to trumpet unfounded claims that Tea Partyers hurled a racial epithet at a black congressman. And that propelled these same reporters to cover up actual crimes — rapes, murders, destruction of property — perpetrated by their “Occupy Wall Street” friends.

Shortly after Ross’ report, ABC News apologized “for the mistake, and for disseminating that information before it was properly vetted.”

Sorry, but that’s not good enough. If ABC News was genuinely sorry, it would take a hard look at how such a fantastically biased report could have made it on the air in the first place.

    Brian Ross should be fired. He can no longer be described as a “journalist”. He’s a partisan hack and ABC tolerates it
